I love my pink beaded lipstick holder! Because of its bright color and texture, it makes it incredibly easy to find my lipstick in my purse. This holder will hold any Mary Kay lipstick, liquid lip color, or lip gloss. It will not hold the Mary Kay lip nectars (a limited edition product released a year or two ago) or the current tinted lip balm. It will hold lipsticks other than Mary Kay brand, though due to the interior design, I was unable to fit a squared lipstick tube inside of it. Unlike the previous reviewer, I DO touch up my lipstick on the go when I'm not always near a big mirror. Sure, I could apply lipstick or lip gloss without one, but it's nice to have one handy. I actually do use that little mirror. Sure, this item is not an absolute necessity, but I really enjoy having it. It makes me smile when I see it in my purse and I've had a lot of people compliment it and ask me where I got it. This was a limited edition item from a while back, so you won't be able to buy this from the Mary Kay lady and will have to keep your eye out for it on Ebay.
