The Lipstick League — week of 6.6.11 (The “what’s in your purse” edition)


Wow, I have had the most unfortunate two weeks of the summer so far! Last week, I fell in my bathroom and sprained my knee and have been hobbling around, barely able to accomplish anything. No driving, anywhere! So here are hopes that this week will be better since I have a lot on my plate! I know that your week has gone much better—and if it hasn’t I’m sorry! The bright side is, the new week is here! Woo Hoo! Now this HAS to be my favorite “question of the week” so far:

Tell us what’s in your purse right now…

I figured—it would be more fun to show you AND tell you, than to just tell you…so here’s a peek inside my purse right now:

Aside from the boring stuff—like my wallet, iPhone, and the enormous mound of receipts and coupons I carry around in there—here’s what I have in there beauty-wise. Some of which fits inside my ancient Sonia Kashuk Cosmetic Bag, and some of which floats around the pockets and bottom of my handbag on most days!

  • My favorite hot pink leather business card holder (by LODIS)
  • Bath & Body Works Fresh Market Apple Pocket Anti-Bac
  • Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter mini
  • LORAC Tie Dye For Gloss in “Social Mixer”
  • Blistex Fruit Smoothies Triple Tropical Lip Balm w/ SPF 15
  • COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipstick in “Dazzle”
  • Supergoop! MintFusion Lip Balm w/ SPF 30
  • 1 black Goody’s Ouchless Hair Elastic
  • Hello Kitty Strawberry Scented Tissues
  • Paul & Joe nail file
  • Lancome Yayoi Kusama Juicy Tubes in “Pop Art Hazelnut”
  • bareMinerals Best Friend Lip Balm
  • bareMinerals 100% Natural Lip Gloss in “Mango Salsa”
  • U by Kotex personal products
  • Maybelline FIT me! Pressed Powder in #120 Classic Ivory

I guess you could say my handbag is pretty large…what’s in your handbag? Make sure to leave a comment at the end of this post!

    Thanks Gloss Girls :) Thanks for coming back! Hand sani is ALWAYS a must. I was traveling this week and I was praying that TSA wouldn’t take mine away…luckily they didn’t! I would have been a little crushed inside.
