Fangirl on the Go: Lipstick Hoarder

It might stem from my days of long, boring commutes to Manhattan, or it might just be that I’m a few old newspapers away from being a total hoarder, but I keep a lot in my bag for day-to-day use. Some of it is practical, some of it is less so, some of it I just forgot to throw in the garbage… let’s take a look!


So that’s my bag, dumped on the floor. You can see a bit of chaos, the old movie tickets, several lip colors, and actual essentials. like my wallet and sunglasses (alternatively, I also carry an umbrella… so yea).


Here’s what I’ve got, starting at top right and going mostly clockwise:

  • Portable charger – totally necessary if you sometimes forget to charge overnight, or use a lot of social media, or you need your cables with you all the time to plug your phone into the car and jam out to Little Mix
  • Sunglasses – these are from BonLook and are actually prescription (because I’m an old lady but also super stylish)
  • Wallet – from the now-defunct C. Wonder, it probably holds too much stuff. I could get away with just a credit card, my Sephora and Ulta member cards, a MetroCard, and some spare cash
  • Umbrella – this teeny tiny one (I think it’s a Totes ‘brella) is perfect to stash in your bag, and I usually keep it inside a ziplock bag so that I can seal it up when it’s wet but I’m still on the move
  • Agenda – I mentioned the agendas a while ago and I’ve been using mine non-stop! it’s great for jotting down to-do lists and fun events and everything in between
  • iPad – since I don’t pay for 3G on here anymore, I mostly use it to read books while I’m out and about
  • Toiletry bag – this keeps me from losing things at the bottom of my big bag. I keep my hand lotion, nail file, various hair accessories, band aids, and tylenol in here. You never know when a blister or broken nail will strike!
  • iPhone – obv.
  • Nest perfume mini rollerball – I love throwing a rollerball in my bag, they’re so portable (and this one was a sample I received from my Sephora VIB points!)
  • Lipsticks – so I’ve got a large selection here, I know… details to follow
  • Paint swatches – these are from when I was planning my wedding… over a year ago… no I will not throw them away!
  • Headphones – my blinged-out BaubleBar x Frends headphones are the greatest thing ever. I carry them everywhere, they’re totally ridiculous, and I can’t help but smile when I wear them!
  • Pens – how else would I jot down all my plans for world domination?


This is my fall/winter lipstick stash. In addition to some tinted lip balms, I’ve got a variety of deep reds and purples, a liner that looks great with many shades of pink and purple, and a neutral pink—just in case!

From Left to Right:

  • Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural – N9 Copper Pink
  • Mary Kay Nourishine Lip Gloss – Pink Sateen
  • Mirenesse Glossy Kiss – 2. Flirty Kiss
  • Stila Long Wear Lip Color Creme – Daring (discontinued,  sadly)
  • Skone Cosmetics Luxe Doubler Eye/Lip Pencil – Wine
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment – Berry
  • MAC Lipstick – Heavy Petting (I think? There’s no sticker anymore but it’s the perfect brown/red)
  • Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Cruella
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment – Coral
  • Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick – Love Test


Sometimes when I’m not paying attention, my cat Winston will drop a toy into my bag as well. He’s very thoughtful like that!

Prone to distractions. I spend my time making playlists for every mood and researching new beauty/fashion trends, if I’m not too busy working. Usually found wearing blinged out headphones and bright lipstick, chair dancing and singing too loud. I take my LIAM with a side of Niall.
