Ah, how we’ve missed the crab. Inspired by the kindly Capital One credit card crab, he wants to know what’s in your makeup bag. He’s not had a chance to have a goo in anyones bits now for ages, so he was especially pleased to see the stash he’s getting to rootle around in today. It’s Babaduck’s ‘basic’ kit, apparently (basic!? Jaysis, we wonder what advanced looks like!) and it’s a little something like this:

“My makeup bag is a gift from the new Estee Lauder Christmas Collection (which I bought in Boots using a horde of points I’d saved up)”, our lass tells us, adding that it’s “just about big enough to hold everything.”

We’re exhausted. We can’t imagine how the poor crab, with his stalky eyes, must feel. “Actually I’m rather shocked at the amount of booty in my bag”, Babaduck admits. But she’s not gonna stop – oh no.  “I have my sis out in Spain buying me two more Sephora lipsticks”, and she’s not even told us what’s in her emergency stash either!
