Have you ever arrived at work and realized you forgot something small, yet critical, at home? Like your I-must-have-it-everyday-or-I’ll-die chapstick? Well, here is AdminSecret’s list of office essentials, must-have supplies to stash away at your desk to help you avoid those minor panic moments in the future.


Stila Jade Powder Hair Refresher

Beauty Supplies

Dry Shampoo

Available in spray or powder forms, dry shampoo will absorb excess oil and build-up, making your ‘do’ matte while giving it a voluminous boost. Some varieties also claim to strengthen your tresses and soothe your scalp! When you need to boost your coif in the morning or on your way out for dinner and drinks from the office – it’s dry shampoo to the rescue!

Price: $28

CoverGirl Eyelash Curler

Eyelash Curler

An eyelash curler (and a travel-size tube of mascara, if you’re feeling adventurous) might be the difference between an ordinary happy hour or lunch date and a fabulous one. Giving your eyelashes a quick curl before you head out to your after-work plans helps open up your eyes – making you look more awake – and keeps your eye make-up looking fresh.


Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss Collection

Price: $4
Available at:

Lip Balm/Gloss
You never know when you’ll get to the office sans lip balm. Maybe you switched bags or purses at the last minute and left your favorite chapstick in the bag you didn’t take with you. So that’s why it’s always good to have a balm and a gloss at your desk, for the mid-day moments when your lips need gentle a refresher.

Price: $65
