What's in my makeup bag - Handbag edition

I'm not one to carry loads of make-up with me but I do like to have my essentials when I'm on the go. Heres what I have in my make-up bag (handbag edition)...
1.) Retractable Blush Brush  
 It probably needs replacing but this comes in handy for blush. 
2.) Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets  
These help to keep my shine t-zone at bay. 
3.) Mirror  
Everyone needs one of these bad boys in their make-up bags.
4.) NO7 Blush in Coral Flush  
An essential to give my cheeks a flush of colour.
5.) Carmex (Cherry)  
The best lip balm by far. Keeps lips super soft.
6.) L'Occitane Hand Cream   
A non-greasy, quick drying hand cream that keeps hands hyrdrated. 
7.) Lush's A Million Kisses Lip Tint
Convenient & gives a quick wash of colour on the lips. 
8.) 2True Eyeliner in Black and a Natural Collection Lipliner 
I've always carry a black a eyeliner in my make-up bag, 
and the lipliner is a colour I wear almost everyday.

What are your handbag essentials ? x


  1. Burts Bees mango lip balm, Revlon just bitten kissable lip stain in Crush, a lip pencil, Prestige Kohl eyeliner/Avon cream black liner, Palmers Cocoa butter concentrated cream (more for my hands) and a mirror :-)

    1. What lip pencil do you use? I've heard Palmers Cocoa butter is very good so I will try the hand cream (once my Neal's Yard one is finished) and there body cream too. x

    2. Ahh sorry for such a delayed reply, don't check the email i have linked to the sign in.. Hmm i think i use a couple of very old collection 2000 and miss sporty ones..i have others but always seem to come back to these two! It's hard finding the kinda shade i want which is a reddish brown.

      Yep def try the hand cream, love my soap and glory and the occitane mini i had but the palmers one is so rich and more intensly moisturises.. Always known about how fab their body butter is! Would love to try Handy gurugu from Lush next :-)

  2. I quite like the hand cream you mentioned!

    Think hand cream, powder and lipstick is a must for me!



    1. I carry the absorbing sheets so I don't carry powder with me. Also I have started wearing the Laura Mercier Mineral powder, as I'm trying to just wear liquid foundation for nights out or special occasions. x
