What the hell is in my bag?
What the hell is in my bag? Search me. I haven't checked in a little while myself and it is about time that I did. Specifically, I am talking about beauty products mind you. I am sure you are not interested in my receipts, gum and coupons. Now, I am not suggesting that you buy or put into your bag or purse what I have in mine. In fact, I have a lot of "duplicate-ish" products in there that I really should remove and I am missing some of the stuff that I should have in my purse. I did not add or remove anything from my purse when I did this. I just dumped out my little black Shiseido makeup bag that I carry. I have had this makeup bag for over 8 years and it still looks great. It's wipe-able too!
Some things don't change. I have always carried mainly lip products since I was a teenager and here we are again. I do my lipstick on the commuter train and I like to have a variety, hence this mess. I stopped carrying face powder years ago (too many ruined purses). Even if I put it in a Ziploc bag, a hole gets in it and it is a DISASTER....
Okay here is the list, with a few excuses and explanations:
Tissue (not shown in picture as it is in a crumpled case - too embarrassing to share lol)
Maybelline Eyestudio 400 Olive Martini Eyeshadow Palette (unused - bought this weeks ago and forgot to take it out of my purse and try it.....)
NARS Lip Gloss in Strawberry Fields (limited edition and I get a lot of compliments on this one)
Elizabeth Arden Exceptional Lipstick in Lush Red (one of the best matte reds out there)
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer 02 Light Medium (haven't really had a chance to use this much yet)
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (mini size)
Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment (full size - my fave)
Fresh Sugar Passion Tinted Lip Treatment (mini size)
L'Occitane En Provence Dry Skin Hand Cream with Shea (mini size - will repurchase)
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in 07 Super Strawberry (perfect stuff for your purse when you want just a little colour)
theBalm Balm Shelter Lip Gloss in Material Girl (love this)
Cargo Plant Love Lipstick in Killarney (newly acquired good product)
MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick (don't love it but it's good to have a nude lip product on hand)
Revlon Colourstay Lip Liner in Plum (one of the best lip liners ever)
Benefit They're Real Mascara (mini size - works well)
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in 01 Extreme Black (mini size - works well)
Mini Bobby Pins by Goody
Generic Lip Brush (no clue why people spend a lot of money on something as simple as this)
Clinique Quickliner for Lips 12 Deep Red (works awesome with Elizabeth Arden Lush Red)
Clinique Quickliner for Lips in 29 Sky Violet (gorgeous colour)
MAC Lipstick in Plumful (it's almost gone - back to MAC soon yeehaw!)
MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Positively Dashing (great colour)
I hope that was interesting for some of you. I love to hear what is in other people's purses. What's in yours? Anything strange?
