What's in Amber's Bag?

What's in Amber's Bag Today we’re looking at what is in Amber’s bag. Amber is the amazing blogger behind Beauty Blogging Junkie. Not only is her blog fantastic but she has the best Lost recaps ever. Being a Lost gal, I look forward to them every week. Here’s what she says…

The bag is a Tory Burch canvas tote gifted to me by L’Oreal when we visited the L’Oreal store in the Beverly Center during the Total Beauty Beauty Tour of LA. I am in LOVE with it. You’ve caught me at a very edited-down state, makeup-wise. First, I was recently on vaca and so this isn’t my typical handbag and second, I am just not feeling makeup in this 95 degree heat we’re undergoing in NYC. Here’s what Tory is containing lately:

What's in Amber's Bag

  • A Jaqua Treasure Bag – this pink and brown and pink confection is perfect for keeping in your purse.
  • Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Cocoa – this is a preview shade (it’s not out yet) I got from Clinique that I am lurving.
  • Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Maximum Coverage Concealer – hides dark circles on the go.
  • MAC Tendertone Lip Balm SPF 12 in Hot N’ Saucy saved my life by the pool on my recent sojourn to the Bahamas.
  • Benefit Dr. Feelgood – is the answer to the anti-powder girl’s shine issues.
  • Kiss My Face Organic Cranberry Orange SPF 15 Lip Balm – is an odd combo of flavors, but it tastes surprisingly divine.
  • Beauty Rehab Rose Salve – is the anti-pot-balm gal’s substitution for Smith’s Rose Salve.
  • Nailtiques Cushion Sponge File – I’m lost without this teeny tiny file, which fixes snags in an instant.

Come back tomorrow when we’ll be peaking into the bags from the gals at Lipstick, Powder and Paint and Scandalous Beauty to wrap up our What’s in Her Bag series.

What's in Jazmin's Bag?

Today we’re looking at what’s in Jazmin’s bag. She’s blogs over at Makeup Moxie and she’s got some great product reviews you should check out. Here’s Jazmin…

What's in Jazmin's Bag?

You’re looking at my well-loved (i.e. regularly abused) Kenneth Cole bag. There are lots of hidden pockets and compartments in it, so there’s undoubtedly something lost in there that I didn’t include in the photos. And, no, I don’t actually keep the Chihuahua in my bag (though he might be able to fit in there). He just likes weaseling his way into pictures.

So here’s what’s in my bag:

My Coach wristlet holds all my most important must-haves (wallet, phone, keys, lipgloss, gum). That way, if I don’t feel like schlepping my whole purse around with me, I can just pull out the wristlet and be on my way. The cute little makeup bag with the hand-embroidered llamas on it is a souvenir that one of my sisters bought for me in Peru. While I don’t want to wear it out by using it everyday, I love it and it makes me happy so I use it anyway.

What's in Jazmin's Bag?

Inside the llama bag, I keep my Global Goddess Foundation/Concealer compact, MAC Tendertone Lip Balm, Cargo Mattifier, Neutrogena blotting papers (yep, I’m seriously into oil-control), and a Shiseido eyelash curler (don’t tell my Shu Uemura curler that I’m cheating on it when I’m away from home). I also always have my trusty Tweezerman folding lash comb.”

Other random stuff in my bag:

  • Netflix DVD’s that I’ve been meaning to return for, like, two weeks. I think the discs in there are the last disc of Rome: Season Two and Glengarry Glen Ross.
  • Rechargeable batteries for my camera (which is also often in my bag)
  • A couple of USB keys with my websites and other files on them
  • A digital security key for my PayPal account
  • Eyedrops (summer in the desert makes my eyes super dry)
  • A couple of cheap pens from the Bellagio and Silverton casinos 🙂

Tomorrow we’ll be showing you what’s in Jennifer’s bag from Beauty in Real Life.

What’s in Cindy’s Bag?

This morning we’re looking at what’s in Cindy’s bag. Cindy’s the gal behind Hello Dollface. Not only does she cover beauty but she also has some funny celebrity commentary that’s worth checking out. Let’s check out her bag…

What's in Cindy's Bag

“I almost always carry Orbit gum and blow big bubbles. How ladylike!
Blotting Papers for mid-day shine.
Lipgloss, a must have! As well as NARS and Bourjois lipgloss.

A bobby pin, just in case.

Ponnytail holder for a windy day.
Blush brush from Stila
Clinique Pore filler, I love this stuff!
An old pan of Maybelline blush.
Rosebud salve for dry cuticles, lips and hands.

Arbonne Hand Cream, Burts Bees lip balm, a variety of pens that don’t work, a few random dollar bills, coins at the bottom of the purse, more receipts, a few pieces of unwrapped gum, a small notebook and a cell phone.”

Check back tomorrow for a look at what Jazmin from Makeup Moxie is packing.

What’s in Carleen’s Bag?

Today we’re looking at what’s in Carleen’s bag. Carleen is the editor Beauty, Fashion and Tech and GirlGloss. Let’s see what she says…

“I love this Nine West bag! It is one of those super sale finds that I got at Macy’s. I think I paid only $24 for it, when it originally was $100. My husband rolled his eyes over me buying yet another bag, but at least this one was pretty cheap!”

What's in Carleen's Bag

“The contents show just how addicted I am to lip products. I hardly ever carry much makeup, but will have a bag full of gloss and balm! Usually it will be just my favorites, but I have so darn many!” Here’s what’s inside:

3 MAC Fafi lipglasses

Aspirin
Motion sickness tabs
Earplugs
brush
wallet
checkbook
biner key chain
2 pens
Gum
Earplugs

“The one non-lip cosmetic item that I can’t live without is the Colorscience sunscreen. That follows me everywhere so that I can reapply sunscreen without messing up my makeup.”

We’ll be back tomorrow with a peak at what Cindy from Hello Dollface is carrying.

What’s in Christine’s Bag?

We’re back with more peaks at what’s in the bag of some of our favorite bloggers. This will be our last week for the time being of our What’s in Her Bag series and we’re starting off the week with Christine from 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic.

What's in Christine's Bag Christine’s blog is fantastic but it’s her articles on skincare that I’ve bookmarked for future reference. Here’s what she says:

Here it is, my bag. I recently switched from a giant, super heavy Gucci tote to this much smaller YSL that is “meant” to decrease the amount of stuff I carry around. This really was all in that purse, I carried it around all week like this (including a day at Disney), and I really couldn’t even close it!

What's in Christine's Bag Inside are my 2 pagers (I work at 2 different hospitals), my phone (thinking of getting a new iPhone when the upgrade comes out, in the meantime I’m lucky this thing still accepts calls), an umbrella, and my two little bags. My mom and her best friend made those for me. They are lined and everything! The little one is the perfect size to hold cards from stores (like my ULTA card) and GCs (which I lose).

What's in Christine's Bag The other one I can barely close! Inside are my medicines (Epipen because I anaphylax to mushrooms, a baggie with tylenol & motrin, plus sudafed and my albuterol), blotting sheets, 3M Lint sheets, Burt’s Bees lemon butter cuticle cream, CND Cuticle Eraser, CND Super
Shiney top coat, La mer hand creme, Bobbi Brown touch up palette (it has powder, foundation and concealer in there!), a MAC blotting powder and finally way too many lippies. Those Juicy tubes are 2 of the same color! I have issues! I think that’s all of my junk!
