You’ve heard what Anne and Melissa and even reader Nicole, 16, carry around in their bags, and now Chicago native Chayla, 14, opens up her bag for us: ♥ Smith's Rosebud Salve Mocha Rose Lip Balm ($7, pictured). I tend to get chapped lips during any season, so lip balm is a must. This one moisturizes with a subtle glossy sheen and smells delicious!
♥ Covergirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara ($8). I love this mascara because it can get the job done and will stay all day without smudging. I have contact lenses, and sometimes they make my eyes water so I love this mascara's staying power through that.
♥ Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Mousse ($4). I have wavy hair and usually don't have time for a morning shower. I use this mousse overnight while my hair is braided, or even in the morning and it air dries perfectly, keeping my hair frizz-free and bouncy.
♥ Clinique Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel ($15). This is a lifesaver! I keep it in my bag for emergency zits, because it is strong enough to keep acne at bay. I use this on my pimples, and they get much better.
