What beauty essentials do you carry in your handbag?


[note color=”#FFE4C4″]My MUST-HAVES are dry tissues, comb, compact powder, lip balm and a gloss or tinted balm.

Right now I have Lakme Lip Love conditioner in Siren and Revlon Colorburst Lip butter in Cherry Tart in my purse. Apart from these I also carry a small tube of lotion/handcream. These are my basics which I always have and which I never take out from my bag. I also carry a few perfume samples but I’ve never ever used them πŸ˜›

What do you carry in your handbag? [/note]




    1. I love the Lakme absolute kohl! Love the kiehls lip balm too but currently using the Figs & Rouge mint one which feels just as good!

  1. foldable hair brush which has a mirror inside it, baby lips tinted one, pack of pocket tissues, clips/bands, little tube of hand cream, little nail buffer to fix cracks and chips, perfume in a perfume atomiser ( i have basicare one and want a travelo) happydent gum πŸ™‚ i know its not a beauty product, but it is a grooming essential.. who wants garlic breath πŸ˜€

  2. I carry quite a lot of things in my purse.. I always have a comb, a tinted lip balm, tissues, a small mirror, a sample bottle of a moisturiser and some mint.

  3. always in the bag items are :- 1 sanitary napkin, Pen, Orbit,Hand sanitizer,Vaseline jelly and hanky. No matter how small the bag i usually stuff above items. Other stuff is 1 mini bottle of face wash in summers and sunscreen and in winters – moisturiser. I usually save 15 ml-20ml sized plastic bottles and wash and fill with stuff i want to carry while travelling.

  4. Hairbrush, Revlon balm stain in honey (now), Chambor dazzle eye pencil in black, wet wipes, blotting paper, M.A.C. lip conditioner, Benefit realness of fakeness pallette, hand cream…… at all times.

    1. I used to like the Chambor Dazzle pencils earlier but now they smudge too easily on my oily lids! I have them in 5 shades πŸ™‚ love the tuquoise one!

        1. Oh yes…. I do like most of their shades, especially teal! My recent favourites include the colorbar eye pencils…absolutely fab!

  5. MAC Fresh Brew lipstick, Maybelline Colossal Kajal (though till date I never had to use it to re-touch…donno really why I carry it πŸ™‚ ), Chambor Silver Shadow Powder, facial tissue pack, Clean n Clear blotting sheets, a tiny vial of perfume (the free sample ones), Neutrogena lip balm, hair brush, and a safety pin for emergencies. Oh and recently, Lotus Herbals Sunscreen Gel for the harsh dry summers of Bangalore… sun exposed skin around mid-day almost feels like its on fire!

  6. Hi Ankita, I started reading your blog a couple of days back and I must say I am very impressed by your makeup collection and also your tutorials, reviews etc.
    Anyway, I carry most of the makeup stuff that I have used on that day. So e.g. today I am carrying powder compact, powder brush. black and purple eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, hairbrush, eyeliner smudge brush, lip balm and hand cream. So, all I do not carry is the eyelash curler (since I do not curl my lashes once I apply mascara), BB Cream/Foundation and eye primer.

  7. My topmost priority is lip balm because I have extremely dry lips πŸ™ I always use Avon’s colour naturals lip balm in strawberry but recently I tried Nivea’s tinted fruity shine lip balms and I really like those πŸ™‚
    I also carry a comb and some tissue. Sometimes I carry kajal with me for touch ups πŸ™‚

  8. I carry a hand sanitizer, wet tissues, Maybelline colossal kajal and compact, a comb, sunscreen, a small tube of facewash and a tube of baby lips and deo along with mint and a couple of OTC medicines. I wish I could carry my neutrogena moisturizer though, if only it came in a smaller pack! But the best thing I have in my bag is my bottle of water- refreshes me more than all the beauty products put together! πŸ™‚

  9. Sachets of Crabtree & Evelyn hand lotion,small bath & body works sanitizer, sample of Clinique dramatically different moisturizer, benefit hello flawless face powder in shade Beige (my skin goes from very dry to mildly oily in the t zone ), lipstick & lip gloss of the day, born lippy stick lipbalm from bodyshop, bodyshop vitamin e face mist , tissues, hairbrush, mirror… I have a pouch to hold my stuff
