  • What's the Wackiest Product in Your Makeup Bag?

  • I am always interested to sneak a peek into my friends' makeup bags and bathroom cabinets. Yes, some would say that's nosy, but it's not because I want to judge their taste in eyeshadow color or steal their prescription for Vicodin, I swear.

  • It's because the products women keep in their makeup bag (especially if they tote it around with them) are the products they truly trust. The ones they tried and loved instantly -- otherwise they would have been tossed. And I've found that when I do get the chance to dive into someone's bag, I usually find something I've never thought of trying or a product I've never heard of. I always ask about these items and my friends always LOVE to gush about them.

  • When I was recently asked to share the items in my makeup bag with our Total Beauty Community, I jumped for joy (see the video of my Makeup Bag Ambush here). I couldn't wait to share my favorite go-to products. Similarly when I saw Assistant Editor Sharon's Makeup Bag Ambush, I couldn't wait to try all the cool products she talked about.

  • And if there is one thing I've learned from working at Total Beauty, it's that women go out of their way to share feedback on products they think are great. So tell me, what's the wackiest beauty product you have in your makeup bag? The one that you just adore? I'm all ears.

    • Products that I'm currently crazy about and can't stop raving about: RevitaLash, L'Occitane Vanilla Shea Butter hand cream, L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof mascara, Urban Decay Naked palette.

    • Baby powder - I use it to deal with excess facial shininess instead of wasting my powder makeup, and I use it on my scalp if it's oily. I also carry a small bottle of olive oil which I use as moisturizer on my hands, lips, and as shine serum or frizz control.

    • Inside my makeup bag is pretty normal. The weirdest thing is on the outside. When I bought Blistex Silk and Shine it came with 2 wineglass charms, so I have pink lips on one zipper and purple on the other. Makes it easier to open the bag, plus a couple friends have the same bag and I always know which one's mine.

    • Nothing super wacky, one thing that's pretty multi-purpose is Smith's Rosebud Salve.. Its great for dry skin and cuticles!

    • I'm not sure that there is a particularly wacky product in my makeup bag. I think that people would just be alarmed by how MUCH makeup I have.
