Elle and Revlon Want to Know What’s in Your Bag?

What’s in your bag posts are so popular that entire Flickr, Facebook, Forum threads, and more are dedicated to the topic. I guess we are just terribly curious about what everyone is carrying around in their purse. I’ve literally had friends dig around in my purse just out of pure curiosity to see what I was carrying around.

I guess our purses are an empowering little accessory aren’t they? Enabling us to carry around little pieces of our life in a bag or a tote that reflects our personal style and prepares us for the challenges of our day, they are our own little survival tool.

Maybe you wanna peek in mine?

Well, as I got older, my bag got bigger and I stopped carrying around everything and the kitchen sink. It’s ironic that I prefer totes over bags nowadays since I use to love trendy little bags which I stuffed my entire vanity content into. The bag got bigger, the contents smaller.

It’s odd that much of the content isn’t beauty related considering what a self confessed cosmetic junkie I am!

1. Netbook
2. Tissues
3. Stain Remover
4. Aspirin
5. Antibacterial Hand Gel
6. Fashion Tape
7. Ballerina Flats
8. iPhone
9. Manga
10. Pens, Pencils, something to write with
11. Cheek Stain
12. Concealer: The new Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener is proving a nifty little must have at the moment in my makeup bag. It perks eyes up nicely when they are starting to look tired!
13. Face Powder
14. Facial Mist
15. Mirror
16. Tinted Lip Balm: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter, as you’ll all agree, it’s such a great one for toting around. Peach Parfait is currently my fav shade at the moment, what’s yours?
17. Hand Lotion

Speaking of brilliant bag contents…..

This Spring, Elle and Revlon have teamed up to celebrate beauty, personal style, self confidence, and how you’re prepared for anything that life has to throw at you by putting together eight unique power purses valued at $3,000 each (bag and contents). The contents of these bags are what enables us to keep our lives organized, beautiful, and empowered.

Four of these purses will be dropped off in diverse locations across the country with four remaining as giveaways to Elle readers online via Facebook.

You can like Revlon on Facebook and receive access to drop location clues for the bags that are being given away online.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    • the Muse

      oh man I have those in the zipper compartment of my bag, the le fresh body wipes, I freaking love things can’t believe i forgot them. honestly, as I got older, I got better about what I carry around, it’s a lot less product than it used to be! your bag used to be like mine at one time haha ;-D Love that you carry more stuff than me, you’re my hero!

      • Cj

        πŸ˜€ I loooove big tote bags lol. I don’t think I could ever have like a tiny bag, it’s just impossible lol. My friends always joke around saying If they ever get stranded on an island they’d just take my bag and be okay for a couple years lol!

        • the Muse

          lol ;-D! same here, I’m all about totes in a major way! it’s just so much easier to forget a small purse at a table. totes just carry it all!

  • Ruth

    I love to see “what’ in my purse” posts! I’m so stinkin’ nosey when it comes to those types of things. Curious to see what is so important to a person that they feel the need to carry it around with them everywhere they go.

    *digs inside purse to see what’s in there*
    1 granola bar- never know when you might get hungry
    2 lush lip balm
    3 pac man ghost mints
    3 hello kitty tin that holds medicine
    4 weiner whistle
    5 sun glasses
    6 iPod
    7 smashbox lip gloss in “it girl”
    8 revlon lip butter in “lolipop”
    9 buxom lippie in “shanghai”
    10 too faced “mood swing”
    11 wallet
    12 keys
    13 and really random- a plastic spoon.
    14 grocery coupons
    15 cash

    • the Muse

      haha I have pac man ghost mints but in my desk drawer. dude what the hell is a wiener whistle and should I ask?

      • Ruth

        it’s shaped like the Oscar Mayer weiner mobile, not the other kind of weiner! hahahahaha!!!!

        I had to lighten my carry load a while ago, purse was breaking my shoulder! I used to carry over 30 lip products, paperback book or comic trade, bottle of water and more stuff that i just didn’t need.

        • the Muse

          *raises a brow* oh really?

          I lightened up a lot in my later years. Through college it felt like I was carrying my entire apartment inside my tote lol. I don’t even bother carrying around my ipad anymore, find it easier to update my site on my net book so just leave my ipad home. I ditched much of my makeup too for a few products I know I’ll use and need. So proud of myself b/c I seriously am compulsive when it comes to tossing crap in my bag

          • Ruth

            it’s awesome! I carry it everywhere; it’s a non-negotiable item in my bag. when i go to cons, it goes with me in the pouch of my backpack, also a great conversation starter when you pull it out. heh, pull it out. i just myself laugh!

            the makeup stuff was just too heavy and I noticed that my bags kept getting bigger to hold my stuff that I should leave at home. I’m compulsive too cause what ever “it” is, i might need “it” later. well, later never comes and “it” gets shifted to the bottom underneath all of the other “it” stuff that i might need.

          • the Muse

            I’m sure it is…*nods serious like*

            LOL! ;-D

            same here..or sometimes I leave it home having never used it before but suddenly need it when it’s at home, the irony of it, oh god the irony!

        • Majick

          RUth, I have to laugh because when you said “weiner whistle” I immediately thought about the little red hot dog shaped whistle I had as a kid with Oscar Mayer printed on it in yellow. That’s the one I thought you were talking about. LOL
          I wonder if that little whistle is still around somewhere in a box in the attic. Thanks for the memory. πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      heh ;-D I just broke her out recently tigress ;-D love it. she was so hard to get during Jason’s run at Target!

  • Michelle

    Wow, what a fun post!

    Well first of all IDK if this counts but I have a BBW pocketbac hanging off of my purse in one of those blinged-out holders, great for wiping off the toilet seats @ the mall, LOL!

    The bag I use to hold stuff in my purse is the “ELF dump bag.” Mine is in Burgundy. I don’t recommend it because the coating began to flake off after only a few weeks of carrying it around.

    Right now I’m carrying:
    ELF Golden Glow blush
    Small notepad
    Small atomizer of eyeglass cleaner
    Eyeglass cleaner cloth
    Cover Girl Volume Exact mascara
    Eyedrops for dry eyes
    Eyedrops for contact lenses
    Sally Hansen lip palette
    Spare key to my house
    Pocket mirror
    Clinique Black Honey lipstick
    NYC lipgloss in Blackberry Brandy
    2 ELF Lip Lock pencils (this stuff really works to keep your gloss from bleeding!)
    C. Bigelow Lemon Blueberry Lip Balm
    4 nail files (why 4?)
    Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten (yeah, I know)
    Sally Hansen Lip Prisms lip gloss
    ELF retractable lip brush
    Sephora thingie to clean under my nails
    mark Totally Balmed tinted lip balm in Totally Hot

    The blush has cracked and leaked, leaving a dusting of shimmery powder on everything in this bag. I really need to wipe things off and do a purge of all of this stuff!

    Can’t wait to hear about what everyone else has! πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      lol good idea michelle! ;-D lol that’s ok, Lip Glaze in Kitten is kinda awesome ;-D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        I remember reading it when I was in middle school. I think it’s high time I reread as well : ) What else do you recommend, btw? I haven’t read much manga lately…the new ones don’t catch my eye so much.

        My lash curler is something I wish I could leave at home but since I have really stubborn eyelashes, sometimes even my HG mascara cannot keep them curled up all day, hence the need for curling midday : (

        • the Muse

    – powder

    why the heck due I have 2 compacts in my purse? The 50000 lip balms and glosses make sense but no wonder this thing is so heavy today. I should clean it out every day but I usually just move my makeup bag to the purse dujour.

    Usually I carry a big bag and carry all kinds of stuff in it. My friends always say I have a little bit of everything. But it comes in handy! I love to carry tote bags as purses too. I’m also obsessed with makeup bags so I usually have several of those in my purse/tote to organize things. Right now I just have a small purse with not much in it because I’m riding with my bf who is a truck driver and I don’t usually carry my purse around. Right now I have:
    an Amethyst stone
    Merle Norman Earthy Soft Touch eyeliner (love it!)
    Merle Norman lipgloss that’s d/c
    OPI Lip gloss
    an assortment of pain relievers and sinus meds
    a sample of Shira moisturizer
    Cigarette lighter (I don’t smoke but I may need fire!)
    some hair clips
    WoW authenticator
    a small lint roller
    small brush
    Orbit melon mint gum
    aloe hand sanitizer
    a little pretty case that has a contact case and small bottle of solution
    a pack of playing cards
    and in a pretty makeup bag I have:
    Merle Norman Ultra powder
    a nail file
    some face blotters to control oil (love those things)

    I guess there’s more in this little purse than I thought. I usually have a bunch more stuff and usually always have Kleenexes with me! And a ton of gloss even though I usually use the same one or two. haha

    Man, I carry way too many Revlon lip butters in my purse – right now I’m rotating through Peach Parfait, Berry Smoothie, Sugar Plum and Sweet Tart.

    Muse – I’m jealous you got that Jason Wu bag. Also, the compact that is pink on the top and looks like a flower – is that Guerlain or Clarins? Is it face powder?

    • the Muse

      me too! me too! they are my go to lately! peach parfait=LOVE! aw thanks ;-D it’s a guerlain powder!
