Jackie Cruz: What’s in My Bag?

Jackie Cruz is a minimalist. Instead of carrying a tote, the star of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black (season 6 begins streaming July 27) has started using a fanny pack. “I forget my purse everywhere,” she admits. “I’ve lost too many.”

Cruz, 31, who’s also releasing her album Hija de Chávez later this summer, unbuckles her bag for Us.

Sticking to Her Roots
“My abuelita gave me Polaroids of her from back in the day. Those are the little things that remind me why I work so hard.”

Do the Dew
“I always have to have that glow. Sephora Collection has a palette that makes your face look wet. And I’m dying over Fenty Beauty’s shimmer skinsticks. The unicorn one looks dope with my skin tone.”

Night Owl
“I use the Rohto cooling eye drops. Because I’m the girl who doesn’t sleep, I put that on real quick, especially after I stopped shooting Orange Is the New Black and started working on my music. I do not sleep.”

Common Scents
Byredo Rose of No Man’s Land is my forte. When we met, Salma Hayek was like, ‘You smell so good. What is that?’ So I know it’s good.”

In the Zone
“I live in New York and I’m always on the train. I don’t leave my house without my Bose headphones.”

What else is inside her Gucci belt bag? A gold vintage chainmail wallet; an iPhone 8 in a clear case; an Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in red; a Fenty Beauty Kilowatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife; Essie nail polishes in pastel blue and green; rhinestone bobby pins from Claire’s; an RMS Living Luminizer; an Urban Decay Perversion Mascara; an American Airlines card; a Starbucks card; a Target card; an American Express; keys attached to music clef; Aleve; a Netflix water bottle and a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers.
