What’s in your bag?

What are some must-haves in your bag? Cosmetics bag and/or handbag! 

Re: What’s in your bag?

Aside from the obvious (keys, wallet, phone) SEPHORA COLLECTION All Day Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator Moisturizer, a sample of Moroccanoil Hand Cream, a tube of lip balm, some wipes.


Sometimes I’ll have a nail clipper handy too. It’s got a surprising amount of uses when the need arises, not just grooming. I’ve used it to cut off tags, as a flat head screw driver, pry something open, to open a package. It’s almost like a Swiss Army knife!

Re: What’s in your bag?

@TheMadHatter85 In my makeup bag, I have fresh Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm, powder foundation and a mini powder brush, Tatcha Mini Dewy Skin Mist 0.4 oz/ 12 mL, and ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starrr BrowKiki Micro Brow Defining Pencil


In my purse, I always have a pair of sunglasses and the Drybar Lil’ Lemon Drop Daily Detangler along with some hair ties. 

Re: What’s in your bag?

This is a fun question @TheMadHatter85  I came to read everyone's answers 🫖 😉


For me it's;

A Big Hair Clip and Lip Gloss 💋 

Re: What’s in your bag?

@TheMadHatter85  My beauty related must-haves: 


  • Aquaphor Ointment (I use it as lip balm, dry patch/windburn prevention, minor wound protection, and other things) 
  • Broad spectrum sunscreen 
  • Hand cream 
  • Nail/cuticle oil pen 
  • Etched glass nail file 
  • A lipstick or tinted balm that pretty much lives in my bag, in addition to... 
  • Whichever lipstick I'm wearing that day 
  • Small compact mirror 
  • Brow pencil 
  • Bobby pins 
  • Hair elastic and/or silk hair tie/scarf 
  • Blotting powder or primer: either LH Cosmetics Blotting Powder or Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder Universal 


I don't usually carry any of the other makeup I applied in the morning. The only makeup I care to touchup throughout the day (if I need to) are lipstick and brows. Anything else should be set well enough with primer or powder to stick around all day. 

Re: What’s in your bag?

@TheMadHatter85 @Must haves for me are hair ties, lip conditioner, mirror, nail clipper, tweezers, face blotter, portable hairbrush and hand cream.
