What's in Ellen DeGeneres' makeup bag

February 11, 2010 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments
In the week Ellen DeGeneres started her new gig at American Idol, Marie Claire magazine had a snoop around her makeup bag and published some of the highlights. I was struck by the fact the article gave Ellen's age is 52. Good for her, she looks more like a sprightly 42. I couldn't resist poking around as well and, of course, giving my take.

Obviously, CoverGirl Simply Ageless is there - well, she is paid to be their face. More of a disappointment is the rip-off La Mer (we revealed just what's in La Mer's miracle broth and we urge Ms D to calculate how much money she has wasted on this product and send an equivalent check to the charity of her choice). Then she has a few other tools and tricks of the trade. Here are their ingredients:
