I’ve actually been wanting to do this for a while now, but never got around to it. Being a beautyholic, I love checking out What’s in my Bag/purse type of posts and now it’s my turn to to show you what’s in mine.
As a beauty addict who loves her makeup, you’d be surprised that I don’t carry a whole lot of stuff in my bag. The only items of makeup I carry in the bag all the time are lippies. I’m a creature of habit (and too lazy to change things every few days) so most of the items in my bag remain the same. Now let’s get into the details..shall we?
Everyone hand sanitizer spray – Hand sanitizer is a must-have for me all year around, especially with a little one!
Eucerin Original Healing Soothing Repair Lotion – I am currently using this as my hand cream. The formula is super hydrating, so it’s perfect for the Northwest winters.
Mobile Phone – Obviously! It’s an iPhone 4s. Yes, I know it’s time to upgrade…..coming soon!
Wallet – I bought this one to match with the Coach bag.
Coach Sunglasses – You can see I am a big Coach fan 🙂
Compact Mirror – This was a spur-of-the-moment purchase from Sephora. I think it was about $10.
Lippies – As I’ve mentioned before, that’s one thing I’m obsessed with! I can’t be without my lipsticks, lipbalms and lipglosses! Currently, I am really loving Savannah Bee Beeswax Lip Gloss in Mint Blossom (a soft, shimmery pink). It’s all-natural and quite hydrating with a nice amount of color, but isn’t sticky. Jane iredale’s PureGloss in Beach plum is another of my go-to shades…it’s the perfect peachy pinky that I can’t get enough of!
The other lippies I have tucked in there are Prestige Cosmetics Color Persist Lipstick in Infinite mauve (such an easy shade to wear!) and Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in Pinup Peach. I also have 2 SPF lip balms in my bag…always. Ladies, keep one in your bag too…you gotta protect your pretty pout from those harmful UV rays! The first one I have is Elemental Herbs All Good Lips Active Beauty Tints SPF 18 in Copper Canyon…a lovely brownish-copper shade that’s a great neutral shade and the second one is the Supergoop Acai Fusion lip balm SPF 30. I keep all of these in a clear cosmetic bag that I received from jane iredale.
Small vial of Auric Blends LOVE Fine perfume oil
Travel-sized hair comb – A girl needs to take care of her hair!
Kleenex (not pictured) – I don’t have any to show you in this pic because I just ran out, so it is on my shopping list.
When it’s summertime, you will also find a bottle of sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) in my bag, in case I forget to apply it on my hands, arms and legs.
So, these are my essentials, my must-haves in my bag. I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a peek! Sometimes I feel I carry too much stuff with me but I’d be lost if I don’t have these items with me. It has never been my style to carry other forms of makeup with me since I almost never use them when I’m out.
Now it’s your turn. Go forth and show us what’s in your bag! Link it in the comments below so that I can have a peek in your bag too.:)
