What's in my make-up bag?

I like to read blogs about what people keep in their purses or make up bags (yes, I said people, lots of guys carry purses too), or watch youtube videos where they show you.....I like to see if there is anyone else that keeps a book in their purse (in case I get stuck somewhere) or a bag of peanuts (in case I get stuck somewhere and get hungry), etc.  Rather then show you the mess that is my purse, I'll show you what I keep in my make up bag.  I just pulled it out, no cleaning it out first, so this is a true depiction of what is usually in there. 

First my make up bag.........It's from a company called Thirtyone, they sell purses, make up bags, lunch bags, and other items.  They are mostly made of cloth, and have designs on them, and as you can see, you can get them monogrammed.  This is not usually my style (I hate that Vera Bradley junk) but I love the make up bags because they are padded.  And as you all know, I gotta protect my lip glosses!

Next up, the contents:

Top row, Revlon Colorburst lipstick in "Rosy Nude", L'Oreal Endless lipstick in "In the Buff" (which I believe is discontinued), Mac lipstick in "Syrup", Mac lipstick in "Viva Glam V" and Essence Stay with Me Longlasting lipgloss in "I Like Cotton Candy"   Second Row,  Beauty Rush Soothing Lip Balm (no color name but it's a bright pink), Soft Corp Soft Kiss lip balm and DuWop Lip Venom.  Bottom row:  Clean "Simply Soap" roll on perfume, Mac Blot Powder, and Neutrogena Shine Control Blotting Sheets.

I'm actually surprised that is all that's in there.....although I did clean it out a few days ago when I switched purses, I probably had 10 more lip products in there, and I also had some chewed up gum in a wrapper...a receipt from Ulta.......and an M&M.   Oh, and I recently found out you can apply a thin film of Milk of Magnesia on your face before you apply your foundation and that helps keep the oil away.....I'm gonna try it, maybe I can reduce the amount of blotting papers I use each day.  Plus...... if I eat something that upsets my tummy, I got it covered ;-).  Now..........what do you keep in your bag???

The funny thing is I don't usually carry one. When I do, I have my wallet, a comb, and my sunglasses. I think I stopped carrying one because of all those years carrying a diaper bag. Also, if I don't bring it with me, I can't lose it =). I love your blogs.
