Tag : What's in my makeup bag?

This is an age-old tag and I have seen many interesting entries for this.
I have always wanted to add one of my own, but I guess knowing that I don't really carry a lot nor anything special in my bag has been putting me off.

Well better late than never, here is my bag. ;)


My makeup bag
It is very old. 
So old, I believe it is older than some of the young bloggers who visit here. ;p


I have other makeup bags, of course.
However, this is my favorite one and I always come back to this.
I guess it is time to let go and get another one already, but don't you think it is holding up its shape pretty well after many washes? 


Here is what I carry in the bag.
A lippie of the day would be added to this, but that's only if I remember.

Minty breath spray (for emergency coffee breath)
Paul & Joe blotting papers in the case with mirror (very well-made case with nice papers)
Paul & Joe Powder Foundation compact (for touch-ups)
Paul & Joe Face color (blush)
Paul & Joe sheer lipstick (light pink shade for touch-ups)
retractable brush (for blush application)
Sula lipgloss (another pink color)
stila lip liner (This works as a lip base, too.)
Bag hook (I love love this!!)
mini golden cup balm (useful for skin irritation like mosquito bites)
hair tie (I tie my hair when I eat. ;p)
my business cards in hard case



Thanks for looking!
Please feel free to do this tag and share yours with me. ;)

  6. I love these types of posts! Does that make me a snoop? ;) The contents are of your makeup bag are so feminine and pretty. Very you! I'm a minimalist in that I only carry blotting papers, lip balm and a lip stick. I think I need to get myself a bag clip. Thanks for sharing Lena!

  7. lol. we're all snoops, then. i love love these posts myself and thought i'd finally add my entry. :)
    i'd highly recommend bag clips! you know how tiny new york restaurants could be and we hate to put our bags on the floor. this is just perfect and lots of people seem to envy it whenever i bust this out proudly! :D

  13. That makeup bag doesn't look old at all! It seems to have held up really well over the years hehe :) I love a bag hook - such a useful invention! And yes, mints are a necessity to combat coffee breath. As Nicole Richie once asked, how far off are we from creating a coffee that leaves your breath minty fresh afterwards? :p

    ReplyDelete
  14. it is more than 10 years old..lolz. it looks pretty good, right? ;)
    i didn't know Nicole Richie was that wise!
    well i sometimes carry toothbrush with me, too. can't give up coffee. ;D

  22. Everything is so delicate and feminine and very Lena :) Do those bag clips really work then? Where did you buy yours? Do you use it when you go out?

    ReplyDelete
  23. hehe thanks, Larie!
    i bought it from amazon just to get a free shipping and i use it all the time! i was a bit skeptical at first but it does hold any bag (even the heavy ones). it is all physics! it will work unless the table is too thick or something.
    they are quite affordable, too. mine was under $10. just pick something with a design you like with no fancy mirror or additional thing. :)

  24. Oooh I have that Paul and Joe powder compact as well :)
    Lovely makeup bag! Hmm thinking of doing this tag too!

  36. I don't carry a small make-up bag around with me, I would never be able to decide what to take! I might do a post of my travel make-up bag soon before I fly out on the 19th Dec though...
