Ever wonder what's in the purse of a country-music star? Well, as it turns out, a lot is there, but it might not be as predictable as one thinks.
Country music's Lisa Matassa was gracious enough to empty her purse, if you will, and provide an inventory of its contents for Examiner readers to see, along with her reasons for toting said items around. Some things, after all, are "don't leave home without it" items, but their "must-have" status is truly in the eye of the beholder -- or rather, in the purse of the country star.
"Everything you see in the photo, I never leave home without," the blond songstress told Examiner on May 27.
And among those purse items are her wallet, a notepad with her "favorite crystal pen," a supply of gum, cough drops and a comb and hair clip for her long blond mane, as well as a sampling of makeup essentials, including "Expanda Dust makeup, L'Oreal BB cream, Bliss Body Butter, Elf blush/brush, Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner, Victoria Secret Lip Liner and Whitening Lightning Lip Gloss."

Luden's Cough Drops
Among the "must-haves" in Lisa's arsenal of self-care products to take along wherever she may roam are Luden's Cough Drops.
"I've been using the Luden's Cough Drops for my voice since my first vocal coach introduced them to me when I was 8 years old," she explained of the lozenge mainstays. "They are licorice, honey-flavored," she noted.
Paraben Free Bliss Naked Body Butter
When it comes to staying soft on the go, Paraben Free Bliss Naked Body Butter is the product that tops Lisa's list. Says the country star: "The Bliss Body Butter keeps my hands so soft and it smells so yummy!" And therein is reason enough to make it an "on-the-go, always-in-the-purse" staple.
Unite Expanda Dust
It's been said that "the bigger the hair, the closer one is to God." And if that's true, country artist Lisa Matassa is doing her part to draw nearer to Thee, with help from Unite Expanda Dust, a height-promoting product that promises to give consumers "more volume and texture than you've ever dreamed."
Says Lisa: "The Unite Expanda Dust is my 'go-to' hair product for extra volume. ... I absolutely love it!"
Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss
As a singer, Lisa knows the attention is not only on her voice, but on where that voice comes from; namely, her lips. And to keep them looking luscious behind the mic, she looks to Whitening Lightning lip gloss.
Beyond is color variety, complete with glitter, if desired, "The Whitening Lightning Lip Gloss is the best because it also has a little mirror and a light built into the tube," explained the lip-savvy songstress.
