In my work bag: A compact mirror, deodorant, sunscreen, MUFE Ultra HD Lip Booster, Monistat Chaffing Relief Powder Gel (a MUST for me in the warmer months), Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (tho I can probably take that out now that I have the Glowy Balm) Laneige Glowy Balm in Grapefruit, Tom Ford Lip Color mini in Casablanca, Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lipstick in Smoothie Move, and Jo Malone London perfume in Nectarine Blossom and Honey.

In my desk: Toothpaste and toothbrush, floss, a comb, hand cream, Tums, gum, Tylenol, bobby pins, a facial mist, a small first aid kit, emergency feminine hygiene products, snacks and herbal tea.

Wow, I keep a lot with me I guess. Hmm…

BAG: MAC Blotting Powder, MAC Viva Glam VI lipstick, Burt’s Bees Tinted Balm (I think it’s the shade Zinnia, but the label came off), Clinique Super Fine Brow Liner (for emergencies), and Estée Lauder Double Wear Concealer (also for emergencies).

DESK: L’Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Varnished Rosewood (I use this after lunch very often, especially if the lipstick I wore in the morning was matte and my lips are feeling dry or if I started the day with a bright lipstick and want to switch to something more subtle), trial-size tube of Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara, and a trial-size bottle of Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray.

Bobbi Brown Crushed Lipstick in Cabana and Colourpop passionpit balm- I love the colourpop balms, they work better for me than anything else I’ve tried.

Mine has a whole bunch of lip products…lol. Mostly glosses because I’m loving them and I am so happy with the Nudestix metal packaging with the mirror inside. It’s saved me at work so I can reapply lip products without taking a trip to the bathroom or trying to use my phone camera.

I almost never go out with more than the lipstick I’m wearing for the day, I prefer not to retouch my make-up and usually good primers, foundation and setting powder keep me looking good all day.

I’m at work and on my desk I have a moisturizing hand cream (Skinfix Eczema Hand Repair Cream, which is amazing), the lipstick I’m wearing today for retouch after drinking/eating (MAC Mehr), a compact mirror.
In my bag I have a SPF lotion I can re-apply when I get outside on areas of my body that are not covered by clothes – hands, neck, chest (CeraveCeraVe Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30, which I don’t like for the face so I’m using it on my body) and breath refreshing gum.
In the desk I have a small bottle with mouthwash (I make a big batch of homemade mouthwash and transfer it to small bottles I re-purpose).

Makeup Bag : At all times: Arrow Boost Color Enhancing (this is a great color adjusting lip balm), Patrick Ta Lip Gloss in Is She Younger Than Me?, Boscia Clear Complexion Blotting Linens, a mini KGD Lipstick in Pink Rose (PK01), Clinique Blush in Heather (14) and Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder (compact). I love the lip gloss from Patrick Ta. It doesn’t have as much color base as the Fenty ones, but it is so light and it has no stickiness at all.
Then, the lipstick and lip pencil of the day. Today, these are Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Amazing Grace and Pat McGrath lip pencil in Bare Rose.

On my desk: Agave Lip Mask, a box of Q-Tips for makeup correction (Precision Tips) and the Sephora & Vero Mona Color Switch Sponge. The Vero Mona Sponge is a great discovery for me; it is a sponge in a tin and instead of switching eye brushes, you just gently swipe the brush on the sponge and it removes the eyeshadow. You can basically use the same brush(es). Very useful in the morning when you are in a hurry. The sponge can be used on both sides and it can be washed.

Bag: NYX Butter Gloss in Praline, Cheek Pop in Black Honey (I have Cola at home – I bought the Black Honey to be lighter and love it, but it’s not an HG and didn’t want to buy another Cola), and Boots No 7 pressed powder in Medium

On my desk is whatever Chapstick I’ve grabbed from the box that holds about 100 that my friend at Pfizer sent me, lol

Bag: J Cat Beauty Powder Foundation, Charlotte Tilbury Pressed Powder, Colour Science SPF Powder, Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm, Pat McGrath Lip Liner in Major Red and at least 15 lipsticks. I really need to get in there are sort things out. I just keep adding until there isn’t any space and then I purge out of my bag and start the whole process again. I know for sure that Charlotte Tilbury Bond Girl, Amazing Grace and Walk of Shame are in there. So are about 4 of the L’Oreal Colour Riche Shines including Positively Coral, Map to Nirvana and something Strawberry. I also have Too Faced Chocolate Pink or Pink Chocolate, can never remember which comes first!! I also keep a small bottle of MAC Fix + for daily spraying!

Desk: On my actual desk at home is a Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm, a Laneige Sleeping Lip Balm, which I am trying to use up and a MAC FIx + and that is it. Everything else is either on my makeup vanity or in its storage place in my armoire.

Smith’s strawberry lip balm, Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1, Kiehl’s Love Oil for Lips, Clinique Crayola Chubby Stick in Mauvelous, Lancôme Juicy Shakers in Piece of Cake, Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, Kiehl’s Deluxe Hand & Body lotion in Lavender, Nivea Soft hand Cream, Kieh’ls Creme d’ Corps, vitamen E oil, Nail File, The Naked Bee cuticle salve, and Seche Vite Top Coat. I have dry lips.

Okay, so I’m moving my tush to go look…
Here we go: MAC Prep & Prime Lips, Nyx Retractable Lip Liner in Ruby, MAC Lady Danger l/s, UD Sheer Slowburn Revolution l/s, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Medium, and a mini Bite mirror that I always keep in whatever bag I happen to be using.

I just cleaned out the makeup bag in my purse, so all that’s left is Sugar lip balm and a nail clipper!

Too much! Chanel hydra lipbalm, Laneige grapefruit lipbalm, Chantecaille hyacinth and daphne lip chic, GA 503 shine lipstick( in red tube), Marc Jacobs new compact powder that has a brush as part of the compact, sample of LM caviar mascara and a sample card of Laura Mercier concealer. One lipbalm and 2 lipsticks will be removed later as the bag is getting heavy! Wallet, phone, keys, id tag for work, eyedrops and nasal spray, it’s getting crowded in there!

I’ve got: Becca’s Prosecco Pop, the Milk Glow Oil in Halo, a Clinique Chubby foundation stick in Intense Beige, Urban Decay’s sheer Phone Call lipstick, Fascy Moisture Bomb hand cream in Peach, a mini Better than Sex mascara, a mini Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Swing, a clear Liquid Lip Smacker, Stila’s Shimmer&Glow in Cloud, and a NYX Powder Puff lippie in the bright orange Crushing Hard.
… and a partridge in a peaaaar treeeee

Lanolips Lemon Aid treatment, Colourpop Belle lipstick (yesterdays lip shade), Revolution Pro lipstick in Instigator (today’s lip), a pot concealer from I can’t remember which brand, a lemon cuticle oil, a compact mirror, a mini Fresh Sugar tinted lip treatment in Tulip, Farmacy Honey Saviour and 2 EOS lip spheres that I need to get rid of because I hate the stupid balls of suck.

Not sure that I really recall what is in the bag, but got very excited today, when I was able to open the pocketbook and the bag while driving, and actually feel the l/s (L’Oreal dazzling doe, thanks) and distinguish it from other l/s/objects in the bag while driving, by feel. Eyes on the road. The sensation in my fingers is returning! Very yay. I know there’s a small decant of allergy eye drops, some S lip stories, a concealer, a mini mascara, and a lip balm. I have a m/u bag in the work bag, too; no idea what’s in there. Dupes. I never touch up; if I don’t need to eat away from home except once a week, and in my settings, why bother? But I’m starting to feel again and the neuropathies/paresthesias are on the wane. thrilled.

In my purse- a mini tube of sunscreen I got from Ipsy, Bite Beauty Dirty Chai lipgloss, Sun Bum lip balm in Key Lime, my handy little Sephora mirror, and lots of tissues!

Makeup Bag: Double sided compact mirror; UD Vice Lipstick in Sheer Rapture; Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow; Beauty for Real Lip Gloss & Shine in Kiss Me; MAC x Jeremy Scott Future Emotions Lip x 9 Palette; Tarte ROTS Palette; Tony Moly Cats Wink Clear Pact face powder; NYX Studio HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Porcelain; Deluxe Sample of Smashbox Photo Finish Primer; Travel Size UD Original Primer Potion; UD 24/7 Mini Eye Pencil in Perversion; NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Black; travel size Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara; e.l.f. Makeup Remover Pen; lip balm; Lady Gaga Fame rollerball; sample sprayer Tom Ford Black Orchid; MAC 316 lip brush; UD Grindhouse sharpener; blotters; plaque remover picks; and black hair elastics.

I work from home, so I just keep a couple lip balms and hand lotions in there. They’re usually samples or subscription box items I need to use up.

I have two lipsticks in my bag right now – Clarins Joli Rouge in Spicy Cinnamon and EA’s lipstick in Cranberry Cream (a berry shade). They seem to go with most of my winter clothes.

Purse: A crystal nail file in a hard case, a glass straw in a soft case, and a compact mirror. Sunscreen. Lipsticks: Dior Brun Samarcande, Bite Beauty Gemini (use that a lot!), Suqqu lip pie in a bright pink, PMG BlitzTrance Electra, MAC The Right Note. Eye Pencil Sample from MUFE.
