What’s in my make-up bag & Monthly Must-Reads

Question of the month: What make-up do you carry around in your handbag?

I don’t carry a ton of makeup with me, mainly lip products and the Tarte concealer. I thought  I’d  share all of the items that are in my make-up pouch. 

Lip products from L to R: Revlon lipgloss – Pink Pop, YSL Rouge Volupte in #2, Bobbi Brown – Pale Mauve, Pangea Organics Lip Balm and Love and Toast lip balm in Cherry Lemonade and lip liner by Jordana (hardly ever used).

Other: Oil Absorbing Sheets by Clean & Clear, Hand Sanitizer, J.R. Watkins Hand and Cuticle Salve 
Midol, Gum, Band-Aids, Tarte Concealer. 

And everything stays nicely organized in this little J.Crew make-up that fits SO much.  

What make-up do you carry around with you?

    Your makeup bag is so adorable – I love chevron anything! I keep reading about this revlon pink pop gloss – I think it's a sign that I need it. I have coral reef and the clear one from this range and they're amazing – very Chanel-esque.And the hello kitty packaging is too cute!!!

    How does that YSL #2 lipstick look on you? I have #1 and unfortunately it looks way too pale on my skin and I'll have to return it to Sephora when I'm there next. Thanks for the links, I'm going to check them out and hopefully get some new blogs to read. 🙂

      I usually dab a bit on my lips for the perfect nude. To much of it could looks quite bad.

    I usually have about 25-30 lippies in my purse at any given time. I'm not exaggerating. A CoverGirl powder and a few pony tail holders, that's it.
