Do You Have a Separate Beauty Stash at Work?

Due to the nature of my job, I've got makeup items all around, so I'm not sure if I can legitimately count myself in on this poll. However, I'm letting my hair grow just a bit and it takes a little curling or flat iron touch-up to tame the beast now and then.

Not wanting to lug my hair tools with me everywhere I go, I recently purchased a cheap flat iron to stash in my file cabinet next to my work desk. What about you? Do you have a separate stockpile of beauty goods at your place of employment?

I have a small stash of items, like extra nylons, nail file, deoderant, toothbrush/paste, hand lotion, lip gloss and powder. I always have a small makeup bag in my purse for additional touchups like press powder, foundation, eyeshadow, tweezers etc for touchups during work hours because I have oily skin and makeup wears off during the day. Also in case I go out after work unexpectedly.

I have a boat load of lip balms and glosses, a loose powder compact, small hairspray, toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant and a few small fragrances. No heat styling tools, though.

I carry a small makeup pouch in my handbag all the time, but I do also keep a little case in my desk drawer with a toothbrush/toothpaste, floss, some facial toner, and lip gloss in it for just-in-case moments.

Yes because I'm always in a rush and it's also good to have emergency make-up (and hair stuff!) for "emergency" happy hour with your friends after work. Stila Convertible Eye Pens are great to have in your drawer!

Allytta- I used to work at the BE offices, and previous to that, I worked at the Benefit cosmetics offices. I've got friends who work at both companies and at about 5 other cosmetics lines, including MAC, Perricone, Urban Decay and True (or Being True, whatever they are called now). I've got product coming out of my ears because my girls hook me up...even when I give most away to my mom and my friends, I still have a ton, hence the ability to keep doubles (and triples sometimes) all over the place.

i keep it in my purse, as I work in different venues every time. but i don't know about keeping doubles at work and gym. seems like a big waste. but if you can afford it i guess why not... but still a waste :)

re: travel brushes Laura Mercier if you want to splurge; similar heads to the full size, but with shorter handles. Other brush sets (ahem, MAC), often have flimsy heads for the travel or brush kits. Sonia Kashuk has a nice set for travel; very economical

I have a little bag with mini perfume, mini mascara, blotting papers that I bring to work if I know I'm going out (which is often). Just this morning when I was packing it, I thought I need to get some small travel brushes. Any suggestions?

Yes, I have a full set, each of cosmetics (foundation, powder, blush, eye shadows, mascara, liner, lipstick, lip gloss) AND hair stuff (brush, comb and styling products) at work, in my locker at the gym, and in a travel case when I travel.

Nope. Nothing beyond hand lotion, anyway.
