Do you know how hard it is for a beauty blogger to condense the beauty items that he or she needs in their bag? Pretty freaking hard. But I love this Top 10 Tuesday post because it’s forced me to clean out my purse and cut down on the basics (six lip products are definitely basic right?!).
Above is my Rebecca Minkoff Cupid Satchel. The actual name is escaping me right now, and I can’t find it online =\. This particular style was released during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but it’s currently on sale even cheaper! It’s not on the website right now, but I saw them on the sale table at my local store.
Onto the beautiful beauty contents! In no particular order:
- Hair Brush – I probably don’t need to explain that.
- IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation – for touch ups, which actually aren’t needed very often when I use this, but it’s important to keep a spare on hand anyway 😉
- Hand Cream – So important. I hate that tight, itchy, dry-hand feeling! The one in the picture is from L’Occitane, but as I run out it changes into whatever small size of something I have at the time.
- Nail File – Again, no explanation needed. The above is from the Tweezerman Cynthia Rowley Series. I like this one in my purse because it came with that protective plastic case.
- Anti-Bac – At any given time I have at least two of these in my purse. I have kids and play areas are gross. Malls are gross. It’s just a lot of gross out there. The above are Eucalyptus Mint from Bath and Body Works and Pure Seduction from Victoria’s Secret.
- Mirror – That circular zebra bling thing up there is a mirror. This is more for someone else. Like if someone asks if you have a mirror they can use… I don’t want to give them my powder compact… because …. well… germs, yo.
- First Aid Kit – Again, I have kids. That thing is full of band-aids, tweezers (also Tweezerman), hand wipes, gauze… as well as Visine for momma 😉 And I also throw hair ties and bobby pins in there so they don’t get lost in the depths of my always huge purses.
- Lip Products – There are six in the picture and you don’t want to even know what was in there before I went through it. I tend to throw smaller sized products in my lip bag as “just in case” type things. Above I took my top 6 and it’s a mixture of Dior and LipSmackers. And, of course, the MAC Lip Conditioner for good measure. I can’t stand dry lips. Could you tell?
- Hand Towelettes – These are for emergency hand/face wipes for me or my kids. They smell so awesome and are really handy.
- Pinch Provisions Mini Emergency Kit. These are FULL of every beauty emergency item you’ll need (such as bandages, safety pins, stain remover, pain reliever, double sided tape…and a whole lot more – 17 in total!). I keep a set in my bag at all times. These are available at Sephora.
