Bionic Asks: What’s in your purse?

by Bionic Beauty on 10.Dec.2008 · 9 comments

Bionic Asks - Makeup and beauty question seriesThis week’s Bionic Asks… dump out your purses gals and have a peak inside. No cheating, changing, hiding things. Just tell the truth. What are you carrying around in your bag?

I took a photo of my gear so my readers can see up close n’ personal what I carry around. My tote was a bargain: Red by mark ecko and I got it for 12 bucks at Ross!

  • Blackberry Pearl cell phone that I blinged. This way I can blog on the go!
  • Keys to the Bionic abode.
  • Wallet, it’s actually a wristlet. This is my only Coach item and I actually got it as a “good girl” prize from my job. I cram all my moolah, credit cards, etc in there.
  • Pen. (Yes, that’s self-explanatory…)
  • Little pink pill container for my meds. A girl’s gotta be prepared, right?
  • Coconut lip butter by The Body Shop. Not my favorite… just trying to use it up.
  • Pin Up Balms lip balm in Coconut. Now *this* lip balm ROCKS!
  • The small green circle is a little tub that I fill with lotion for my hands. It currently holds a few squeezes of Aveda’s Hand Relief BCA edition.
  • For some reason, I always have a ton of lip colors in my purse… it’s funny since I rarely reapply. Oh well. Today (and usually, these are my faves) the colors are: L’Oreal Color Juice stick in Cherry Freeze (I posted pics here), Three Custom Colors lipgloss in Doubles (photos I took here), Bobbi Brown lip gloss in Aubergine (pics here), NARS sheer lipstick in Captiva (perfect with Doubles or Aubergine overtop for a mix n’ match, see pics on my lips), Clinique’s Butter Shine lipstick in Ribbon Pink (I’m not normally a pink girl, but this color melts right into your lips, a bit of shimmer, the case has a mirror & a pink ribbon and the tube is a gorgeous pink metallic!).

What's in Bionic Beauty's Purse?

Ok, your turn… whatcha hauling in your purse?

I’m afriad to look! I’ve got duplicates of almost everything:
1 mondo wallet with checkbook, cash (if I’m lucky), credit cards and pics of my daughter;
2 more checkbooks (one for the business, one for my mom’s account);
1 little wallet with other credit card sized things (punch cards, store credits, frequent buyer, ya da ya da);
1 pill bottle with assorted meds;
4 pens, none of which work;
1 set of keys to the car;
Another set of keys with keys to the house, my husband’s office, my mom’s house, and things I have no idea what they unlock;
Dental floss;
Cell phone;
2 or 3 lighters;
1 half eaten roll of Wintergreen Lifesavers;
Kleenex; and a
Pad of paper.

Notice the lack of anything cosmetic for someone who makes makeup? Geesh.

Alyssa, I hope you get what you want, but unfortunately we aren’t able to buy or sell anything here on Bionic Beauty. It’s just a place to share makeup ideas, tutorials, free samples that we find, and product reviews.

Keep saving up those pennies. :)

Oh…and what adhesive did you use on your phone? The last time I blinged mine the crystals kept falling off!!! (and Swaroski’s ain’t cheap)..I used that something-3000 from Micheals…..


7 jo @ Sydney Spray Tan December 11, 2008 at 11:14 pm

Wow, this might be embarrassing….

Sunnies, purse, lippy, keys, phone, tissues, Tic Tacs and a bunch fo stuff I would never admit to on a blog!! 😉

Josi, I used something from Michael’s too. I think it’s by Aleene’s. It was their gem and rhinestone glue. I know that’s not the one “recommended” by the pros, but I found the glue more elastic so if I drop my phone the stones don’t start jumping off. I did use 3000 one time and it turned brown and crystals would flake off MUCH easier.
grrr… but try the version from Aleene’s. I really love that glue!

And to everyone else- thanks SO much for sharing your purse contents! It’s so fun to read what we all carry around!
