Today we are playing a game called what’s in your bag this week? Before we get started please first note how literary I am – I just happen to have a copy of “Farenheit 451” in my bag today. Don’t get too excited it’s for my bookclub which is this week and I’m only on page 60. I also have about a gazillion crumbs and maybe a small child in there. Shhh.
Drumroll please –
Nivea Handcream – .99 cents, CVS.
This is my very favorite hand moisturizer and I always keep a tin in my purse. Look how cute this tin is! Don’t be deceived though – this is a very emollient moisturizer and a little goes a long way. One tin will usually last me a few months and doesn’t take up a whole lot of purse space. It has a very pleasant lemon scent.
Sugarbomb lip gloss $16, Ulta.
Sugarbomb is one of Benefit’s new lip glosses that came out in the last month. Sugarbomb was an impulse buy and at first I was a little underwhelmed by the product, but it has really grown on me. The color is a very flattering pinky brown that is moisturizing, sheer and shimmery. My favorite lip glosses are ones that I can put on without looking in the mirror and Sugarbomb fits the bill. I would really like to try this in coaralista too.
Band Aid Friction Block $8.49 Walgreens–
Every summer I buy pretty new sandals that are hell on my feet. This year is no exception, so I started carrying friction block and a few band aids in my bag. This product is pure genius – it looks like a little mini deodorant and you apply anywhere your evil pretty shoes are rubbing up against your feet . Friction block really helps with preventing blisters until you break your new shoes in. Also, it’s small enough fit in your clutch, awesome.
Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets $4.49 Target-
In the summer I think its helpful to keep some blotting papers around for touchups and managing “the shines”. Most skincare companies have jumped on the bandwagon now and there are a million different kinds (mattifying, shimmery). I’ve always liked Clean and Clear’s version which is basic, inexpensive and does the trick. The packaging is light and about the size of a credit card, so it doesn’t take up much space.
Benefit Highbeam $26 Ulta–
I keep a sample tube of this in my bag for days when I feel haggard or I need a quick boost if I’m going out after work. Putting a little of this highlighter on the inside corners of your eyes and the top of your cheekbones really makes a major impact with little fuss. You will look awake and glowy people! That’s the dream, right?
