Beauty Chat : How many lip products do you keep in your handbag?


I typically keep 2-3 lip products in my handbag. I keep at least 1 lip balm, 1 neutral color (a pinky brown shade that can be worn anywhere) and the lip color I’m wearing that day for touch-ups. I used to carry much more but I’ve narrowed it down to only the products I really need and it saves up a lot of space!

    I used to be terrible about letting lipstick accumulate in my purse. Now, I try to keep it to a lipbalm or two, and whatever lipliner and lipstick I’m using for the day.

  26. April 7, 2016 / 12:01 pm

    Loving your Beauty Chat posts Ankita! I just keep a tinted lip balm in my handbag actually 🙂

    An embarrassing amount– usually seven or eight, but once I pulled out nine products while searching for the “right” one to lend my Mom at a restaurant. Always a lip balm, an all-purpose gloss, neutral liner, and then the gloss & lipstick/s I’m wearing at the time, plus often a couple from days before, or a color I might switch to later, if I feel like it.
    Along with a powder compact, concealer, hand mirror, inner & outer rim eyeliners, some all-over face color, and of course, mascara. Sometimes brow pencil too.

    Hi Ankita, are the lipstick shades available in India different in US even if they are of the same brand and same shade code/ name?

      Hi Deejay, I'm sorry I don't know about that.
