I can totally cheat on this one! I traveled recently, so I had clean out my purse. Right now, I have Jack Black Lip Balm and Bobbi Brown Pink Sequin High Shimmer Lip Gloss. I don’t normally have too much in my purse–usually a couple more Bobbi Brown glosses.

My make-up purse contains the following: Chanel Le Petit Pinceau Touch-up Brush, Guerlain Le Stylo Yeux in Jackie Brown and Meteorites Compact in Blanc de Perle, Tom Ford Cheek Color in Frantic Pink and Lip Color in Bruised Plum. 🙂

Maybeline Fit Me Foundation Stick, a mini UD Liner and some mini mascara, Burts Bees hydrating Pear balm, UD Rapture, Stila Kitten Lip Glaze, and a mac lipstick, I think it’s Crosswires right now. I usually have some kind of shimmery cream product in a champagne color that I can use on lids or cheeks too but I don’t right now.

I, too, had a cleanout recently 😛 At the moment, I have Bloom Tangerine and Revlon Peach Parfait lipsticks, Urban Decay’s double ended liner in Demolition/Perversion, and some eczema cream (not quite as romantic, but there you are!)

I only ever have lip products in my purse. Currently, the ones that stay in there semi-permanently are:

– A pinky-red semi-opaque lipstick (an old one from Oriflame, I really need to replace this)
– Epically Epic Lip Balm in Epic Berry (tinted lip balm in MLBB color)
– Natio Lip Balm SPF 30 (For SPF purposes)
– Jack Black Lip Balm in Grapefruit & Ginger (to top lip colors with, as it provides hydration but not TOO glossy or slippery)

I do usually bring my lip color of the day, but when I can’t be bothered, these four work perfectly well. On days I actually bother to wear a full-face make-up, I usually have a small retractable eye brush, eyeliner, and maybe a small bag of loose eyeshadow for touch-up.

Oh we!! so I recently did a post on this! 😀 I have a lip balm, lip stain from benefit, L’occitaine hand cream and the beauty flash balm!

Mac Blot Powder (I can’t live without), Milani Rosé d’Oro Blush, Urban Decay Catfight Revolution Lipstick, YSL Rouge Volupté #1 and Maybelline Teddy Bear (Matte line)..

Blotting sheets(does that count?) + Maybelline Baby Lips + a lipstick
I don’t really touch up, mainly because I am lazy and kind of would feel awkward doing so. I want to get into it, but eh.
Also I’ve tried to be better with having longer lasting face makeup.

Hahahaha, a lot, usually. I have my get-ready kit: L’oreal Voluminous Mascara, Benefit They’re Real! Mascara (I use both), an eyelash curler, a clear lipgloss, The Body Shop Lipbalm, Femme Couture Sahara Rose Lipgloss aaaaaaand Benefit the Porefessional Agent Zero Shine 🙂

Hahaha, love this question! … MAC Lip Conditioner, Revlon Matte Balm in Elusive, Covergirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Blackfire, BareMinerals Primetime Brightening Eyelid Primer, Benefit That Gal mini, MAC Opulash Optimum Black, and Garnier Anti-Dark Circles Tinted Roll-On. Hahahaha can you tell I finished my makeup on the fly yesterday?!

Also: L’Occitane Subtle Violet Hand Cream, Ego SunSense Daily Face SPF50+ Invisible Tint Finish, Ego SunSense Lip Balm SPF50+, and two eczema creams.

TmeBalm concealer in Light/Medium, NYC Expert Last lip colour in Air Kiss, Guerlain Gloss D’Enfer in Dragee Bomp, a stub of Revlon Luxurious Bronze eyeliner, a clean mascara spoolie wand and Jack Black Lemon lip balm.

A blush, a pressed powder and a brush I can use for both, a Clarins lipstick and a lip brush and a Revlon lip butter. Although I rarely touch up my face, I always feel I should have stuff in my bag in case I need to touch up my face….sounds silly but in reality, I probably should touch up my face a bit mid-day but I rarely have time. The only thing I do regularly is slap on some of the lip butter at lunch time!

Maybelline Fit Me pressed powder, Burts Bees lip balm, some oil blotting sheets, and Urban Decay Streak lipstick!

Just the essentials: Blinc Mascara, L’Oreal highlighter/concealer, CO Bigelow shine-free lip balm (mostly for my husband), Bare Escentuals Buxom gloss in Amber, Burt’s Bees pink grapefruit chapstick, MAC Flamingo lipstick, and MAC Easy Lounger gloss.

I like to keep a few lipsticks and glosses that need to be used up with me at all times so I can remember to reapply often! It all fits into a little Hello Kitty pouch that I got from a Sephora gift with purchase promotion.

Anastasia brow pencil, Cle de peau concealer, Tom Ford semi-sheer lippie in Bare, NYX Mega shine lipgloss in ?? some frosty peachy brown colour. Korres lip butter in guava, Shiseido laquer gloss in Nebula, Maybelline lipstick in Born With It (neutral pink), YSL Rouge Volupte in #1 Beige Charnel.

I’m so bad for accumulating lip products in my little makeup bag until it gets completely over-stuffed and yes, I am due for a purge. Rinse. Repeat.

Oh boy! Boscia green tea blotting sheets, 2 or 3 lipsticks (Hourglass & Chanel), Hourglass diffused light powder, comb, Fresh sugar lip treatment and a bunch of hair ties.

MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Love Beam, Fresh Sugar Lip treatment and Smith’s Rosebud Salve(which feels great on my lips, but I absolutely hate the taste of it)

I love these kinds of questions!

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black

Mercy! No wonder my purse is so heavy. Methinks I need to cull the lip products!

I, too, have recently emptied out my purse due to traveling, but I currently have a Maybelline Dream Wonder pressed powder, Benefit Hydro-Smooth lipstick in Fling Thing, and Too Faced La Creme in Pink Chocolate.

Lawd, I feel bad typing that all out, lol.

In my purse right now, I have a pressed powder, Guerlain Les Violettes in the fairest shade, Hourglass No28 lip serum thing, a Pacifica Lilac roll-on, and S2 Lab Shine Gloss by MUFE. 🙂

I have a tube of Coola moisturizing sunscreen spf 30, a tube of Lansinoh, a decant of Iris Padilla, and a Neutrogena MoistureSmooth color stick in color 60 (soft raspberry). And of course, a nail file, dental floss and a little hairbrush.

Burt’s Bees honey lip balm and blotting papers. I haven’t gone out at all today, so that’s all that’s in there. I normally carry whatever lip product I’m wearing with me along with MAC Studio Fix Powder if I’m wearing it that day for touch-ups.

MAC Blot Powder, mini UD Catfight Revolution lipstick, mini UD Black Velvet 24/7 eye pencil, mini Bobbi Brown Extreme Lash Glamour mascara, NYX eyeshadow in Haywire and mini powder brush, tweezers and brow brush.

Buxom Menace lipstick, Sephora Midnight Swim eye shadow, tube of Yu-Be lip therapy, mini jar of loose powder (translucent), mini face brush.

in my work makeup/toiletry bag, I have urban decay zero eyeliner, lancome defincils mascara, bit beauty creme lipstick in pepper, giorgio armani lip gloss in shade 524……

Antipodes Hungry Like The Wolf Lipstick which I didn’t like during summer but now that it’s Autumn…funny thing that, how colours which I didn’t like in summer, I’m totally rocking it now:))

Just one item — a miniature Jane Iredale “Just Kissed Lip Plumper.” On the other side of the mini-tube is the word “TOKYO,” all in caps. Not sure if that’s the color, or just part of their branding. Anyway it’s a great teeny thing, the color is sheer-ish, and very pretty. When I go out I usually have the rest of my makeup set for the day, and I usually carry the lipstick I’m wearing to refresh. But if I forget or whatever, this is my “wallet backup!”

I’m currently carting around (in my wheelbarrow!) Bobbi Brown creme blush (for lips too), Elizabeth Arden beautiful mascara (on its last legs and for emergencies only), Chantecaille lip chic in tea rose and Chantecaille brilliant lip gloss in Charm (I looove those two), a coral lipstick (forget who by), a neutral lip liner by Avon, and a liqui-glide eyeliner also by Avon. If I’m honest the Chantecaille products get the most use followed by the creme blush.

UD Surreal skin cream to powder foundation, Revlon color burst lipstick in pink truffle, UD 24/7 shadow pencil in mushroom.

Bobbi Brown corrector; MAC ProLongwear concealer, Prep n Prime lip and Stud eyebrow crayon; Buxom mascara, Chanel Chamade cream blush and Rouge Coco 45 Caractere lipstick; Milani Eye Tech Extreme liquid liner; Tarte Lipsurgence in Fiery; C.O. Bigelow My favorite night balm; NARS And God Created the Woman e/s palette; UD sample size Primer Potion; Smashbox travel sized Photo Finish primer and a sample of Chanel’s Le Lift moisturizer.

I do eyes and face before heading out and set them with UD All Nighter, so there’s nothing in my bag but lip touch-ups:

UD 24/7 Lip Pencil in Manic
Lancôme Gloss In Love #351 Lily en Lamé
Givenchy Gelée d’Interdit #8 Electric Purple

UD translucent powder, burt’s bees lip balm, and nyx butter gloss in fortune cookie! I’ve been working so much lately and only have room to carry those for touch ups.

I just cleaned my winter stuff out of my purse, but I left my MAC Studio Fix in C25, one Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, one Clinique Chubby Stick in Fuller Fig, and a pack of Tatcha Aburatorgami Japanese beauty papers. I don’t have all of my summer touch up items in my bag yet, but I am working on it.

My few regulars are Spiked eyebrow pencil (if and when my brow gelcreme wears off), Starbucks napkins (amazing for emergency blotting!), lipbalm, 2-3 makeup remover wipes, hairspray and perfume – and whichever lipstick of the day is.

MFU HD Foundation 177
Bobbi Brown Concealer
Becca Highlighting Powder in Topaz and Opal
Anastasia Brow Pencil
MAC Clear Brow Gel
Tarte Lights, Camera,,, Mascara
Drew Barrymore Blush Stick
NYX Waterproof Eye Liner or Stila Liner
Lips – it varies by day

I always carry my moisturizer, my MAC SF compact (even though I hardly use it I always carry it, even if it’s just for the mirror), Rimmel Tiramisu liner (probably because I was going through a trying-to-make-some-nude-lipstick-work phase) and a nude lipstick like Aishwarya Rai’s Loreal lipstick, MAC Touch or now Dior Esquisse.
I add eyeshadow or blush or eyeliner or a particular lipstick depending on what I might want to use that day, if I want to use anything at all. Friday was just MAC Ocean City, which I finally received and Burberry Golden Peach, which actually looked a bit sweet together.
I don’t use mascara much but I’m kinda checking around for a new one to try. I didn’t like the last natural/organic one I tried at all! I should just get a clear one because they tend to touch under br brows and leave little black dots

Like always several lipprducts: Neutrogena lip care, Clinque Chubby Stick in Heaping Hazlenut und Mighty Mimosa, Laura Mercier Lipgloss in Babydoll, Shu Uemura Lipstick (can’t remember the number).
