I got a new purse yesterday (yay!) and as I was transferring all my stuff from the old bag to the new I realized I have a lot of stuff! Do I really need receipts from two years ago or 12 different lip glosses (even if they are on this top glosses list)?
The short answer is no, of course I don't. But that got me thinking of what I do need. What are those everyday essentials I rely on? For me it's lip gloss (clearly), hand cream and blotting papers. I asked TotalBeauty.com readers for their purse must-haves, check out what they said, it's nice to know I'm not the only one who's a hoarder:
"Almost a dozen lip products including balms, glosses and lipsticks (self-confessed lip product junkie here!). Oil blotting tissues, tweezers, compact mirror, and hand cream." -- hankatcar
"Lip balm. I am obviously very high maintenance." -- Tailea
"I carry lipstick and lip liner, powder, and blush (as well as oil blotting papers)." -- jayesimp
"I certainly cannot (REPEAT) CANNOT leave the house without my loose powder for touch ups and my Softlips lip balm." -- Tweetybird11000
"Compact powder, lipstick, lip gloss and blusher are always in my purse ... they are like my BFF." -- girlynpinky
"Lip balm. And maybe hand cream. Everything else is optional." -- DarklyDreaming
