Lake Bell, 34, empties out her purse for Us.

The star of big-screen thriller Black Rock (out May 17) keeps plenty of pens in her Breton purse. "My fiancé likes drawing on napkins, which I save," says Bell, who is engaged to artist Scott Campbell. "I'm always scared I'll get caught taking a linen napkin from a restaurant!" What else gets stowed?


"I have vitamins I intend to take to be a better person. I even have a pillbox for them, to remind myself to be healthier. But will I take them? Definitely not."

Paper Trail

"I'm organized, but receipts tend to mess up my system. They're barbarians! So I store them in a notepad."

Paying Lip Service

"I carry basic Aquaphor. I've auditioned new lip balms, but Aquaphor has always had my back when I needed her."

Undercover Color

"I love Dr. Hauschka's blue mascara. It's not so blue that it's like, 'What's wrong with you?!' It's more like a secret that you're wearing it."

Hankie Pankie

"I'm a hankie carrier. I have a collection my mom has given me over the years -- at least 100. I even have Halloween ones with spiders. At my wedding, everyone will be going home with a hankie!"
