Purse Essentials


I have a little bag full of goodies I carry in my tote at all times.  It never fails, when I leave this bag at home, I wish I had at least one or two things with me while I’m out!   Obviously when I go out at night, and carry something smaller, this list is scaled down, but these are my essentials for everyday use!

Concealer: Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Roller

Y’all, this is the best stuff.  A lot of the time by the afternoon, my concealer is not holding up well and my eyes are looking puffy and tired.  I can see my hereditary dark circles peaking through.  Although I start my day with a heavier concealer (look in my previous post “March Favorites”), this one is perfect for putting over top of my makeup midday.  The rollerball tip is cold to the touch, and feels great under your eyes and the tint is just enough to brighten that area, without being heavy or causing creasing!

Powder: IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Powder Compact

I am an oily girl in my t-zone, so love keeping this powder in my bag to touch-up throughout the day.  It is light and doesn’t make you look cakey, but takes care of oil breaking though your foundation.  It also gives you the most flawless, airbrushed look to your skin. Works well for those with dry skin as well.

Mascara: Chanel Volume de Chanel Mascara

This is my holy grail mascara. It’s my favorite and I adore it! Every time I go to the makeup counter to pick it up, I always ask for samples of it to carry in my bag.  They are happy to oblige and most of the time give me two or three!  It doesn’t smudge, flake, or rub off.  It gives you the most voluminous, longest lashes in the blackest of black colors.

Blush: NYX Bright Idea Stick in Rose Petal Pop

Less is more sometimes, which is why I love this product.  I have used it for not only a quick touch up to my blush, but also as eye shadow and lip color.  This is a beautiful rosy shade which is perfect for everyone’s skin tone, but NYX has more great colors on their website if you’re not a pinky/peach girl.

Lips: NYX Butter Lip Gloss

Anyone that goes through my bag can tell you, I have about six of these rotating in my purse at any moment.  It is the perfect gloss. It’s not gloppy or sticky, and it covers beautifully.  The colors are all super wearable, my favorite being Vanilla Cream Pie.  They also smell like yummy vanilla, and at 5 bucks a pop, you can have every shade of the rainbow like me!

Extras I Like To Keep on Hand:

Hand Care: Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Refreshing Aloe and Soap and Glory Hand Food Hand Cream

I work with children so the need for hand sanitizer, is a very good idea. I love the aloe one because it doesn’t dry my hands out as much as the regular.  I also love the small Hand Food hand cream to keep my hands soft and smooth!

Nail Tek Mini Crystal File

This is awesome, comes with a case, and is perfect if you snag a nail on the go.

Colgate Max Fresh Wisp Disposable Travel Toothbrush

These are the best to keep your mouth fresh, and your teeth white! Especially after eating, or sipping on red wine!
