What Makeup Do You Have in Your Purse Right Now?

Published in: Just For Fun

I ask this question periodically because I get a weird thrill out of finding out what people lug around with them throughout their day.


Strange? Perhaps, but c’est la vie! πŸ™‚

Lately I’ve been traveling surprisingly light, but I think that’s because I just switched purses and haven’t had time to recruit my usual army of random lip glosses, powders and cans of cat food (with gravy, of course).

I’m currently toting five things from the makeup department…

How about you? What makeup do you have in your purse right now?

    I usually carry my pressed powder foundation, a clear lipbalm, a tinted lipbalm, and the lipstick I’m using for the day. Some days I’ll just have the lipbalm.

    Hope everyone is having a great day!!

  8. Fieran says:

    I currently have MAC’s Lip Conditioner, NARS Dolce Vita lipstick, MAC’s Careblend Pressed Powder in Dark, MAC’s Blot Powder in Dark and a small fluffy kabuki brush.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Fieran,

      GURL, you know NARS Dolce Vita lipstick is my jam, right? I like to think of it as my NARS gateway product, LOL! Do you have NARS Amour blush? It looks fantastic w/Dolce Vita.

      • Fieran says:

        Aww I recently got the bf to pick up Dolce Vita blush and lipstick in April. Then on his recent trip, I asked for Taos. Now you’re making me want to hunt for Amour. I shall swatch it if and when I get a chance πŸ™‚

        In love with Dolce Vita lipstick though, it’s so pleasant and subtle. Goes great with my colourful eyeshadow looks.

    My bag’s empty except for lip balm and blotters! =D

      • Arianne says:

        Ooh, gurl, you will LOVE Joe Fresh. And the prices! Insane!

        Their matte lipstick line ($6) is amazing. Fuchsia is a must have.
        They have really cute nail polish colours that are 3 for $10.
        The lip stains are also very good.
        They have some eye shadows too. Take a look at Peacock for an awesome bright teal!

        Hmm… honestly I’d just play with everything if I were you. Oh, and the clothes! Check out the clothes. Their swimsuits are usually super cute. Enjoy!

    Benefit EyeBright

    AND MY LAST PURCHASE… Hawaiian Tropic Sunkissed Moisturising Lipgloss spf 25 in Mango Papaya

    PLUS some other stuff I always carry around because I would like to finish it and I try to use it every day:

    KIKO Precision Eyebrow Pencil 01 with its sharpener (it’s called precision for a reason…)
    an Estee Lauder brown eye pencil
    an extremely old Deborah teal eye pencil (I’m thinking 1991… auugh!!!)

    MUFE Glossy Full Couleur 06 (I have a bad feeling these may be discontinued, anybody know anything about it? It would be a pity , bc it’s the best gloss I’ve ever tried)

    Normally I would carry also… Alright, alright, I will not stretch your patience any further πŸ™‚

    Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Guet-Apens
    MAC Blot Powder in Light
    Urban Decay 24/7 concealor pen in the lightest shade (can’t remember the name exactly!)
    Cetaphil lotion – I got a little sample of an awful moisturizer from Sephora so emptied that plastic container and filled it with Cetaphil!

    • Karen says:

      Ooh, I’m curious to know what moisturizer sample you got.

      You can never go wrong with Cetaphil…

      • Melissa says:

        The brand was Clickr. Funny, looking at Sephora’s website they actually have pretty good reviews. Guess it just didn’t agree with my skin!

        Completely unrelated, but I just got an iphone and you totally inspired me to get a Kate Spade case! I’ve always loved polka dots, and Verizon’s selection was pretty boring. Works out perfectly for me!

    Nars lipgloss in Foul Play, Cover Girl pressed powder, MAC lipsticks in Ravishing, Shy Girl, Creme Cup, Angel, Blankety, and Hot Gossip.

    This is going to sound terrible, but I don’t have ANY makeup in my purse. It’s not that my purse is too small or anything. It’s nice and big. But I just haven’t gotten around to it. I keeping MEANING to put together a small makeup bag.

    I really should get on that.

  46. Instant Karma says:

    I lug way too much crap around in my purse! On top of carrying my wallet, phone, and a couple pens, my handbag is a portable pharmacy. I have Aquaphor (works as a lip balm, moisturizer and blister block), hand cream (fragrance-free so it can work on my face, too), hand sanitizer, dental floss, eye drops, tampons, a couple bandaids, and the OTC trifecta of Zyrtec-Aleve-Pepto Bismol. I’ve got everything I need for an emergency save for a scalpel and a bag of O -!

    As for makeup, I have
    – Bright red lipstick that can be layered or applied sheerly. It works no matter where I am or what time it is!
    – Kiehls lip balm with SPF
    – Alison Raffaele spot concealer (grr zits)
    – TimeBalm concealer in light/medium to combat my under eye area’s demon circles
    – Boots highlighter pen. Not only is it much cheaper than Touche Eclat, it’s much better. Unlike Touche Eclat, the brush doesn’t grow mildew after a few months and the product is noticeably more pigmented.
    – Clinique double ended eye pencil. It has a light brown brown pencil on one end and a light pink highlight on the other!

    Sometimes I keep a tiny UD 24/7 pencil in there, too, but not right now. Considering how much I have in there, I feel like I should eliminate whatever products I can to keep the rest from breeding or something, lol.

  47. Kim says:

    I have a tube of Superbalm in raspberry and a tube of Clinque lipstick (Just Gorgeous). I also have a nail board, buffer and cuticle oil (but those don’t really count as makeup). Though, none of these items is doing me any good since my purse is at home and I’m at work. HAHA! I do have a sparkly, berry gloss in my car. I won that from my favorite blog when I first started reading it. πŸ™‚ Normally, I have a lip balm or gloss in every jacket pocket and in my car. Since I hate lugging a purse, this way I’ll at least have a good chance of finding lip relief while I’m out and about.

  48. Melissa says:

    MAC Surf Baby! Refined Golden Bronzer/Good Lovin’ lipglass/Strange Potion lipglass, MAC Plastique lipstick, NARS “O” lipgloss and blush, NARS Copacabana Multiple, MUFE HD Powder and TKB Micas in Satin Orange Gold and Travel to Venus ( just came in the mail!!).

    Between my desk at work (where I stash my things for the day so I’m not digging through my purse in front of my kids) and my purse, I have Lollia Breath Hand Creme, Rose Salve, Smashbox O-Gloss Gold, a tester of some Chanel serum that smells incredible and I’m using on a couple of patches of eczema I got from ExfoliKate, hydrocortisone cream (eczema, again), Chanel Gardenia l/s, Chanel Pink Peony l/g, and Chanel Aurore l/g. I wore Gardenia and Pink Peony yesterday and forgot to take them out πŸ™‚ I often end up doing that, and have found up to 20 different lip items in my purse at the end of the week! I am absolutely loving the Chanel stuff I bought from the Summer collection. Good grief, their new foundation is awesome πŸ™‚ But, I’m not carrying it with me! Oh, and I just saw I have a Sephora lip gloss, but I’m not sure what color. I’m wondering, Aurore looks kinda like what I think EvoRevo will look like. Are they at all similar? Regardless, I intend to order several EvoRevos when they are available, and think about you and your words of strength!

    1. Clinique lipstick/lipgloss duo in 51 Think Bronze (different lipstick end) and 10 Air Kiss (long last gloss wear SPF 15) . The lipgloss end has a pretty big dent from use and I’ve only had it for two weeks…what? I’m a lipgloss person!

    5. Avon glazewear shine lipgloss in sparkling pink (that I got from MBB!!!! You don’t want to know how much I wear this color.)
    6. Benefit Nice Knickers
    7. Benefit Jing-a-ling
    8.Stila lip glaze in Fruit Punch
    9. Stila lip glaze in Cotton Candy
    10. Stila lip glaze in Grapefruit
    11. Clearasil Adult Tinted Treatment Cream sulfur resorcinol acne medication (for the “AHHH! PIMPLE” moments)
    12. Palladio Rice Paper oil-absorbing blotting tissues in translucent (which you would have to pry out of my cold, stiff dead hands to get a hold of because I rely on these all summer. I love them THAT much. The Holy Grail of oil absorption, I kid you not.)

    Um, I think that’s it (unless you count my sunglasses, bobby pins, hair ties, nail file, purell, contact solution, contact lens reweter, inhaler…..etc. My purse is a pharmacy just about.) I told you it wasn’t particularly pretty! It’s pretty scary!

    Sadly, I only carry lipgloss or lipbalm in my bags. I have a work bag, diaper bag and a small wristlet. Each has similar lipgloss colors but different brands. I have a small makeup bag in my car that has pressed powder, MAC l/s Viva Glam VI, Buxom Lipgloss in Dolly, Sephora Nude lipgloss Bobbie Brown lipgloss in Tea Time (discontinued). I think I will need to get MAC Hibiscus. I’m sold.

  75. Quinctia says:

    I don’t carry makeup, really. I don’t even have a mirror in my purse. I do carry lip stuff, because it’s annoying when they get dry. So in this little pouch in my purse, I’ve currently got a Burt’s Bees tube, two Softlips (Sugar & Spice and Pomegranate), Jack Black lip balm in Lemon Chamomile, a sample UD lip junkie in Midnight Cowboy, and a full size UD Pocket Rocket in Doug.

  76. CynthiaCCC says:

    I don’t carry a whole kit with me, it’s usually just an accumulation of whatever lipsticks or gloss I’ve worn since the last time I bothered to put them back in the makeup drawer (which, depending, can be just a few or A LOT), and occasionally whatever other makeup I throw in my bag when I’m dashing out the door and planning to put it on when I get to campus. So let’s see…. [pause while CCC rummages through bag]: MAC Lipglass in Lychee Luxe (it’s YOUR fault, Karen, that I caved and bought this. love it, though.), Aveda lipstick in Luna, CO Bigelow Cinnamint Lip Shine, and Crazy Rumors Bubble Gum Lip Balm (very cool cruelty-free and vegan company). Oh, and because I didn’t finish my manicure yesterday morning, a bottle of Seche Vite! (Really should get that out of there, probably.)

    So that’s what’s in my bag. Hope it made you laugh! πŸ™‚

  77. Stevie Raye says:

    I like to keep my makeup minimal, so I keep a little makeup bag that I carry in my purse (which my girlfriend calls my suitcase), and in that bag I have my bareminerals foundation, a bronzer, my concealer and face brush, Revlon grow luscious mascara, and chapstick. Plus a few lipglosses lying around the bottom of my purse somewhere. Also, whenever I decide to wear more eyemakeup than usual or I feel like wearing some lipstick, I carry that in my makeupbag as well, just in case I need some touchups.

  78. I love Napoleon Perdis Makeup and MAC. I always carry my all time favorite foundation which is the Napoleon Stick foundation. This versatile foundation Stick doubles up as a concealer and is a must have. I also love MAC lipsticks which I always have with me.
