What's in My Stash(es)

As much as I would like to pretend that I start everyday in a fluffy white robe, carefully applying make-up at an immaculately organized vanity….that's just not the case. I have make-up stashes all over the place and I'm constantly getting ready on the run. (Seriously, my husband talked me into getting a manual transmission car because he thought having to shift gears would cut down on my multi-tasking). So dump your purses, empty your gym bag and join me in owning up to what I'm actually reaching for on a daily basis.

 

The Questions:

 

1. How many places do you store/stash make-up?
2. Which product(s) do you own in multiples so you're never without one?
3. Are your stashes high-end or drugstore? Are you like a friend of mine who hoards designer make-up, but totes around a Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker?

4. Have you ever stabbed yourself in the eye with mascara while driving?

 

My answers:

 

1. 4.5: Home, Gym Bag, Office Drawer, Purse. The .5 is for the center console of my car. Stuff just ends up there.
2. The Body Shop Concealer Pencils, Blotting Papers, and Tweezerman Tweezers. I swear an errant eyebrow hair (or god forbid a chin hair) can rob me of my ability to concentrate until I'm able to pluck it.
3. Mine are a mix. I rotate a lot of samples and minis into my stashes as a way to try new products

4. More times than I care to admit.

 

In the interest of honesty, I pulled everything out of my various make-up bags and took pictures.

Re: What's in My Stash(es)

1. How many places do you store/stash make-up?

3... Home, Work bag, purse


2. Which product(s) do you own in multiples so you're never without one?

Maybelline Babylips, Tweezers, I have a pair EVERYWHERE


3. Are your stashes high-end or drugstore? Are you like a friend of mine who hoards designer make-up, but totes around a Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker? Mine are a mix. I have tons of designer brands, but I have this obsession with using down all of my drugstore brands (my Lip Smacker is bubble gum). I also rotate a lot of samples. My favorite things are Sephora Favorites kits so I can rotate through things that I like without having to fork over tons of money for a product only to fall out of love or move on to something else. 


4. Have you ever stabbed yourself in the eye with mascara while driving? I never have. One thing I won't do is drive and do mascara. I am however, awaiting the day I accidentally eat a lib balm due to applying while driving Smiley Wink
