I Haz a Problem...


I used a bag yesterday that's been hanging on the banisters for the last week or so. It's a small enough bag, a brown leather satchel but it's one that's in constant rotation.

Half way through the day I reached in to pull out my lippie from the back pocket that I'd thrown in before I left the house. (Clarins Rouge Prodige in Fig)(My HG lippie that goes everywhere with me).

As I rummaged I pulled out balm after gloss after polish and thought, just for the lolz, I should check what I'm actually carting about in my secondary bag. There was...

  • 5 polishes & a top coat
  • 2 perfumes: Emporio & Sensuous
  • Murine Eyedrops 
  • 2 lipsticks: Clarins Fig & Catrice Lobster Love
  • 1 Revlon Lip Butter: Pink Truffle
  • 3 Balms
  • 3 Glosses
  • Sleek Rose Gold Blush
  • Avon Supershock liner in Blackberry
  • Benefit Erase Paste
  • Sephora Stop the Spot
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo Eternal Gold

By any accounts this is excessive, right? So how about you make me feel a little better, what are you lugging around in your mála right now? Don't think about it just look and lemme know!

PS I'm not admitting it out loud 
but some (most) of these are back ups 
of products in my main bag. 
I ought to be ashamed. Truly.

Ah at least this problem doesn't invoke the guards and intimate items ;) I just swapped bags on Sunday and mine was shocking too - no nail polish though - you have to have sensuous that's your signature scent and we wonder why our bags are heavy

I carry about a full make up bag with me every day. No nail polish though, which makes me feel a bit better :)
