Reader Crystal wanted to know what’s in my makeup bag. I did a post on this last July, and looking back, there wasn’t much of a change in what I carry with me on a daily basis.
Funny enough, the only bit of makeup I bring around with me are lipgloss and lipstick. It might look like I carry a lot of junk, but believe you me, when I’m caught in a situation where I’d need to use any of these, I’d be glad I carried them around like a brick in my bag :p
I’ve had a few more makeup bags after I got this one from Bloom, but I still went back to this one as it’s held my stuff the best. It’s laminated with plastic on the outside which prevents it from getting wet and dirty.
Description given from left to right.
Tampons and pantyliners in a ziplock bag
Hair elastic, bobby pins and safety pins in another ziplock bag
The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Blotting Tissues
Wet tissues (got this from a 100yen shop in Japan)
L’oreal True Match Super-Blendable Powder in Neutral (abysmal stuff, but I got it for free so I just leave it in there)
Origins Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind On-The-Spot Relief
AMO Complete Blink-N-Clean Contact Lens Drops
PocketBac Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Gel in Cucumber Melon from Bath and Body Works (best smelling hand sanitiser EVER)
Ego QV Cream (a gift from Connie)
Cancer Council Australia Everyday Sunscreen SPF30+ (in the summer, I’ve taken to carrying a small tube of sunscreen with me everywhere I go, especially if I forgot to put any on, or when I need to reapply)
Foldable comb and brush (got this from the Malaysian Airlines Golden Lounge :p)
Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush lipgloss in Juiced Berry
C.O. Bigelow My Favourite Lip Balm
Avon Ultra Moisture Rich lipstick in Pink
Camphor oil (I need this as I get intermittent stomach aches. Provides me with temporary relief without having to pop pills)
That is just in my makeup bag. I also carry a packet of tissues and mints.
Thanks for the question, Crystal, and I hope this answers it 🙂
Over to you. For those of you who have never done a post on this before, what’s in your makeup bag? For those of you who have, have any of the items you bring with you change in the past 6 months? Have you added or taken out the kitchen sink? 😉
