A shopping receipt from three months back? Check. An empty bottle of perfume? Check. A mini pouch with hundreds of coins? Check. A woman’s handbag is Pandora’s box that basically contains everything in the world — both useful and useless! So, while we’re sure you need no help hoarding junk, we have made a beauty checklist of five handbag essentials that every girl must carry at all times. Read up!
- Wet wipes - For instant cleansing
- Lipstick - For a picture-perfect pout
- Hand cream - For soft, smooth hands
- Kajal - For pretty, defined eyes
- Compact powder - For quick-fixes
Wet wipes - For instant cleansing
From helping fix smudged makeup to cleaning up the face in mere seconds - wet wipes are a must-have in a girl’s handbag! That’s why we suggest carrying the Lakmé 9to5 Natural Aloe Cleansing Wipes with you at all times. With aloe vera extracts, jojoba oil, glycerin and vitamin E in their formula, these facial wipes help cleanse, hydrate, and remove dirt and grease from your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and clean.
Lipstick - For a picture-perfect pout
Now, no girl can ever leave home without her favourite lipstick in her handbag. How else would we keep that pout perfect? So, make sure to always carry a nice lip colour like the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color in your handbag. It provides intense matte colour to your lips, while also keeping them moisturised for up to 16 hours, all thanks to the rosehip oil in its formula. What’s more… It is available in 25 pretty shades to go with every mood.
Hand cream - For soft, smooth hands
With the constant use of sanitisers, our hands end up being dry and flaky. That’s why a good hand cream is a must-have. Our go-to is the new Lakmé Hand & Nail Cream With Mulberry. This two-in-one hand and nail cream is made with the goodness of pentavitin, almond oil and the superfood mulberry! It helps improve the appearance of your skin, keeps your hands soft and moisturised (even after washing) for up to four hours. Basically, it is everything your hands need and wish for in a tube!
Kajal - For pretty, defined eyes
Puffy, tired eyes or just didn’t get enough sleep last night? Well, all you need to make your eyes appear brighter is a stroke of kajal! So, make sure you carry the Lakmé Eyeconic Insta Cool Kajal in your handbag at all times. This cooling kajal is infused with the goodness of cucumber seeds that promise to soothe your eyes instantly. What we also love about this kajal is the intense deep finish; it provides in a single stroke that lasts up to 22 hours without smudging.
Compact powder - For quick-fixes
You always need a compact powder in your handbag to ensure you look amazing at all times. What you also need is sunscreen to make sure the skin doesn’t suffer any sun damage. But, why carry two products when you can get the best of both worlds in the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 PA+++ Compact? This sunscreen compact boasts of SPF 40 that helps protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun and gives it an ultra-matte finish. Unlike other sunscreens, this one is non-sticky, non-greasy and light on the skin, lending a flawless, matte look to your face in no time! Can you ask for more? We think not!
