What Makeup Do You Have in Your Purse Right Now?

Published in: Just For Fun

It being Friday, and with El Hub promising he’d take me out to dinner tonight, I’m trying to figure out what I want to wear tonight (still haven’t decided).


I also grabbed my current favorite purse, which — wouldn’t ya know it? — contains makeup. Big surprise, right? πŸ™‚

Here’s what I have in mine right now (just the makeup)…

  • MAC Blot Pressed Powder ($22)
    To cut down the shinies!
  • MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush ($16.50)
    For a dewy glow, I apply this creamy peachy pink highlighter along the tops of my cheekbones, brow bones and down the bridge of my nose.
  • Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Crush ($24)
    This creamy hot pink blush blends fast, and it doubles as a lip tint, too.
  • Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Imaginaire ($32)
    Non-sticky and long-lasting, this shimmery pink is one of several go-to glosses I keep in my purse.
  • Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Stormy Grey ($18)
    LOVE THIS! At certain angles, this shimmery deep grey liner (which works as a fantastic alternative to black), flashes subtle hints of green.
  • Laura Mercier Stickgloss in Pink Jewel ($20) and Lip Plumper in Ruby Glaze ($30)
    Both from Laura’s new Silk Road Spring Collection, this duo of rosy pink perfection is one of my new favorite go-to lip combinations.
  • Diorskin Scupt Lifting Smoothing Concealer ($31)
    My MAC Pro Longwear Concealer does a fantastic job of hiding my dark circles all day, but I’ve been keeping this light-as-a-feather concealer on hand for emergency touch ups (you never know).
  • Cargo Lip Gloss in Tokyo ($32)
    One of five glosses from Cargo’s spring Voyages Gloss Collection, this sheer pink feels non-sticky and looks super shiny on my lips.

Whatcha got in yours?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Oh, I almost forgot. πŸ™‚ It’s Friday.

    OK, I’m currently schlepping around: MAC Pressed Blot Powder, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha, some Lancome mascara sample, Edward Bess Pure Impulse lipstick, Revlon Just Enough Buff lipstick, YSL Rouge Pur Couture #11 lipstick, Buxom Big & Healthy lipglosses in Lola & Bianca and some random Revlon clic-pen lipgloss in Nude. I also have a folding toothbrush & mini toothpaste.

  3. stacie says:

    OMG your bag is so neat and tidy! I’m not going to list them but I always carry a minimum of 20 lip products in my bag at any one time. There is a girl a work who only owns 1 lipstick. She is not well.

    • Karen says:

      I have a crush on this bag because it forces me to minimize the stuff I haul around. πŸ™‚ If I carry around a big bag I know I’ll keep filling it up with crap… that’s how I roll, LOL!

  4. Tiffany says:

    I love posts like this! I’ll have to post my list when I get home from work since my purse is actually not with me. It’s mostly lip products. Lots and lots of lip products πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      I’m betting you’ve got more than a few coral lip glosses in yours!

      How are you and the baby doing today? πŸ™‚

      • Tiffany says:

        I need help, right? an intervention maybe?

        • Milka says:

          Oh my God! I am not the only one with 20+ items in her make up bag. I’ve always been befuddled about girls who only carry a lipstick. How do they survive, I wonder! I can’t. I CAN’T! I need my arsenal otherwise I’ll probably dye. Thanks, Tiffany, now I don’t feel like a makeup hoarder.

  6. kirsty says:

    I’m generally too lazy to reapply/trust my products to last all day so I only bother to carry my lipstick of the day around with me!

    Today it was GOSH Soft’n Shine in Scarlet (which is actually pink and therefore badly named!)

  7. Lore says:

    The must have on my purse is: Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Currant…love it!!

  8. Karen says:

    6 MAC lip products that are oh-so-close in color: Innocence Beware lipstick; Devilishly Stylish gloss, Feeling Dreamy gloss, Underage gloss; Tad Saucy gloss and Enchantee gloss. I sense a pattern.

    Purse size L’Occitane shea butter hand cream (unscented)

  9. An extra Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil in Onyx (My staple!) for touch-ups just in case

  11. Rachael says:

    Two lipsticks/glosses (Clinique Black Honey, a cheap clear one whose brand I don’t recall, and NYX Black Cherry), lip balm (Burt’s Pomegranate Replenishing), and three perfumes in a roller ball (Coco Mademoiselle, a pheromone, and a single note of Indian Champa).

    • Karen says:

      Ahh, Coco Mademoiselle in a rollerball. That’s kind of genius, really!

      Did you pick that up recently? I think I need one too.

      • Rachael says:

        I was afraid to keep the bottle in my purse, I’m terribly clumsy, so to the internet I went in a search for a refillable rollerball. I think Sephora makes one, but I got mine for less from a online store based out of the New England area, plus I got a few for all of my scents!

        • Karen says:

          Me too. If I tote around fragrance it’s usually via a scented lotion or a solid. Otherwise it’s a recipe for disaster. I think I could handle a rollerball, though!

  12. Margit says:

    * June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Revitalizing Hand Treatment (the best)

    * Clinique Long Last Glosswear #05 Rock Violet

    * LORAC 3D lipgloss (I don’t know the color)

    *Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Enchanting

    * Fresh Supernova mascara

    * Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer (travel size)

    * Bi-Facil Double-Action eye makeup remover (because by 3pm I’m a mess and have to clean up my eyes. Any tips??)

    Great post!

  13. Christina says:

    In my purse right now
    UD Naked

    Lise Watier kajal eyeliner in black

  14. Barbara V says:

    This must be why my arms are so strong πŸ™‚ I tote around a lot in my purse: Revlon Photo Ready powder, Sephora matte blotting papers, i.d. on the spot eye makeup remover swabs (total genius), Benefit D’finer d’liner nude lip liner, Clinique Long lasting glosswear in Juicy Apple, YSL Touche Eclait, Vincent Longo lipgloss in Sophia Rose, Givency hydra sparkling lip balm, tarte travel size lights camera lashes mascara, Smashbox lip enhancing gloss in clear, MAC Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick, Revlon baby pink colorburst lipstick, Stila lip glaze in cranberry, Nars orgasm multiple, Chanel lip gloss in Spark, Smashbox camera ready concealer, Lancome lipstick in rich cashmere, Laura Merier lipstick in brown sugar, Makeup forever eye liner in OL plus some misc brushers and sponges.

    MAC Blot

    MAC Lipglass in Glamour For All (fave!)

    MAC Lipstick in Brave

    a comb

    a spare pair of earrings bec i always forget to wear one from the house

    Stella rollerball

    thats it!

    • Karen says:

      What? No Smashbox blush?!? πŸ˜‰

      • Nina says:

        theyre at home. i dont really bring blushes w/ me bec i drop my makeup bag so often and im afraid i will shatter them. πŸ˜€

        i use a makeup setting spray to make sure i dont need a blush touch up for the rest of the day. seems to work, esp if i remember to spritz after i put the blush on rather than after setting my makeup w/ translucent powder. πŸ™‚

        • Karen says:

          LOL, I’m just teasing! πŸ™‚ I usually don’t like to carry powder blush around… it’s just begging for disaster, hence the cream blush.

          • Nina says:

            i shd grab one of my stila convertible colors and bring it w/ me … but its rare that i go anywhere after work that needs makeup πŸ˜›

  19. larrielle says:

    In my purse I carry a small mirror and lipgloss.

  20. Heidi says:

    Well, if you had asked me this a week ago the list would have been much longer but over the weekend I started wondering why my purse was so dang heavy, and…. it was time to purge that sucker! So, currently I have:

    2 MAC lipglasses: Nymphette and Oh Baby
    1 package of Boscia blotting papers
    1 hand sanitizer from Whole Foods
    1 travel size hand and body lotion from Ulta’s store brand in Citrus Creme
    1 Pacifica roller ball fragrance in Tuscan Blood Orange
    Comb, mirror, and emery board

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heidi,

      Ha! The same thing happens to me. I tend to just let the makeup pile up (I like to have options), and then one day I’ll realize that HOLY CRAP! I’ve got everything but the kitchen sink in my bag!

  21. G says:

    Chanel lipstick – Gabrielle – MAC lipstick – Heartless – MAC prep & prime lip – The latest coral gloss from Chanel Spring – Don’t remember the name but the # is 149-Wish they put the names on them like they used to – MAC – Wicked Ways lip gloss & Red Enriched Pencil and MAC Redd pencil – Lots of Red today – LOL – Thats it!

    • Karen says:

      Hi G,

      I’ve been meaning to pick up Redd! What do you like to wear it with?

      • G says:

        I love Redd – I wear it almost all reds – Russian Red the Chanel Gabrielle – Cyndi – Brave New Red – even Cockney. Sometimes I wear Cherry with blue/based reds – but I’ve worn it w/corals and peaches too – like Surprise Me/Cut a Caper and it really looks good w/Toxic Tale.

        Think you need it – LOL

  22. Kendall says:

    I have:

    MAC Plushglass in Oversexed
    MAC Plushglass in Fulfilled

  23. Alison says:

    I always carry:
    Chanel Poudre Douce in Rosee for touch ups
    Carmex lip balm
    Chanel Hand cream (smells so divine!)
    I usually have a Chanel Aqualumiere and Chanel Rouge Coco/Rouge Allure in there too – todays choices were Rouge Allure in Darling and Aqualumiere gloss in Bon Bon.
    and my trusty OPI crystal file

  24. Melissa says:

    I just switched purses (to something smaller!) so I’m still trying to decide what I absolutely need. Right now I have:

    Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Ballet Russe and Mademoiselle
    Fresh Sugar Plum lip treatment
    Good old Burt’s Bees lip balm
    Lancome Dual Finish powder in Matte Porcelaine I

    I mainly use the Lancome powder for the mirror, as I just don’t like the powder on its own. Deciding whether to get the Mac Blot powder or Guerlain’s new pressed powder (such a pretty compact!), though I think the Mac powder would be more useful.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Melissa,

      I gotta say that MAC Blot is kind of amazing. It does a fantastic job of cutting the shine and it never looks heavy. Plus it photographs well!

  25. Jen says:

    For a makeup addict, I don’t carry a lot makeup around with me. I think it’s a combination of not liking heavy purses, and not liking to touch up throughout the day!

    I have:
    UD Stardust in Retrograde (deluxe sample size)
    UD 24/7 liner in Zero (one of the many mini sizes I own… I have to start giving them away!)
    Sephora atomizer that has Dream by the Gap (my favorite fragrance, evaaar!)
    Victoria’s Secret Live Pink edp rollerball (I bought this on impulse so I could stand in line and talk to my sister who was working at the cash register at the time)
    Sephora lip gloss in Precious Pink (also a mini size, and it’s faded, so it looks more white/clear than pink!)
    The Body Shop Born Lippy lip balm in Satsuma Shimmer

    TGIF, ladies!

    Btw, which KS bag is that… the small flat one for $50? It’s out of stock right now but I’m thinking about the $60 makeup bag in the same print…. Gotta measure it out and see how big/small that is…. I see that the bag you have is a little longer than the iPhone…..

  33. i only have lip products in mine because i’m going through a “small bag phase” at the moment and am using a smaller makeup bag. i have a small pouch from coach that contains mac tinted lip conditioner in fuchsia fix, mac plushglass in big baby, clean & clear oil absorbing sheets, and a vintage designed mirror.

    If I’m just running errands, I usually only carry Clean and Clear Oil Blotting papers and whatever gloss I’m wearing that day. I LOVE Chanel RAEG in Imaginaire! One of my faves. It looks amazing over Confidentielle Rouge Allure l/s, too. I’m pretty sure I got introduced to Chanel makeup on this blog — you should see what I have accumulated from Chanel in the past year!!

  36. SaraJane says:

    I have mostly lip stuff since that’s all I tend to touch up during the work day.

    Chantecaille lip chic in Dahlia (my new favorite!!)
    Aveda lipstick in Sheer Rhubarb
    Urban Decay lip junkie in Jilted
    Urban Decay lip junkie in Midnight Cowboy
    Philosophy lip gloss in Caramel Apple
    Aveda hand relief cream

  37. I have MAC Film Noir lipstick (this is my favorite color!), MAC Concealer, MAC gloss & lip liner (can you see a theme here?!-LOL) and Clean and Clear Blotting tissue.

    I love wearing MAC products! I carry this with me, but I hardly ever need to touch up because their makeup stays put. My face gets oily so I’m forever using the Clean &Clear tissues.

  38. I don’t carry much make-up as I never wear much in the day – I only carry Carmex lip balm to keep my lips super soft!

    I love that all your lip products are all practically the same shade on screen. But, this one has fuchsia shimmer and that one has lilac shimmer – so they’re totes different!

    Recently, I pared down to a smaller bag for day-to-day mostly because my usual bag is full from my last out-of-town trip and I haven’t unpacked it yet. I’m currently toting around:

    Bare Minerals powder foundation
    Illamasqua blush in Tremble (wearing today-love!)
    Pixi sheer cheek gel in Natural

    I’m probably the only girl who doesn’t have a makeup kit in her purse. I only bring lipstick and lipgloss with me when I go out. I rarely ever need to touch up and I’m just too scared to lose any of my makeup to risk bringing them out of the house with me. Kinda silly, but better safe than sorry. πŸ™‚

I rarely ever need to touch up and I’m just way too scared to lose any of my makeup to risk bringing them outside the house with me. I know it’s silly, but better safe than sorry. πŸ™‚

    This is crazy, but I do not own a purse, or a back pack, or a satchel, or anything portable to keep makeup items in. I do have a travel make up bag that I keep in my duffle since I go back and forth between my parent’s houses frequently. In there I have:

    MAC lipstick in ‘Heartless’
    MAC Viva Glam V
    MUFE Rouge Artist Intense #4
    Fresh Sugar Plum tinted lip balm
    NARS lipstick in ‘Petit Monstre’
    NARS lipstick in ‘Schiap’
    a Rouge Coco lipstick in ‘Paris’
    NARS Laguna bronzing powder

    mini UD eye pencils in ‘bourbon’ and ‘electric’
    A mini NARS six-shade eyeshadow palette

    Commenting late! Two months ago, I bought my first HUGE purse AKA my luggage according to my husband. I used to carry a small wallet type shoulder bag, carry a tube of lipstick in my pocket, and store translucent powder in my jeep’s glovebox. Now I have more than enough room for my huge appointment book, bottles of lotion, make-up brush bag and the following:

    Halo To Go medium
    Shu Uemura eyelash curler
    Smashbox Lip Tech Maple
    Smashbox Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss in Eternity
    Estee Lauder MagnaScopic Black Mascara (need to find a better mascara)
    Oriental Princess Age Renewal Anti-Aging Lipcare (smoothest lip balm ever)
    Bobbi Brown Italian Rose Creamy Lip Color
    Clinique Long Last Matte Lipstick in Red Hot
    Urban Decay LIp Junkie Lip Gloss in Naked
    Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eyeliner in Black
    Tizo Tinted Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40

    I need to buy some oil blotting papers.

  69. Amber says:

    I have been carrying Elizabeth Arden Lip Protectant Stick in Honey and Lancome gloss in Golden Sunshine for days. I added some things to my bag today while running to a movie: Elizabeth Arden holiday quad eye/ blush palette and two brushes (angled blusher and fluffy crease). Liking the E. Arden eye shadow quality much more than I expected to πŸ™‚

  70. Emily says:

    omg I totally have the Tokyo Lip Gloss from CARGO too! I got it from my travel CARGO lip gloss kit from eBeauty.ca. I also own MAC Pressed Powder Foundation – that’s usually all I carry in my purse. Got that from the MAC store. If I’m going out on the town, I tend to bring my CARGO eyeliner in Black with me too (as darkening my eyes tends to fade throughout the night). I’m a simple gal πŸ™‚
