My Travel Makeup Bag


Incase you didn't know I'm heading back to Florida next month! Going home to Disney World! Even though it will be swelteringly hot, I will be be wearing makeup. I'll be taking lots of photos, as usual, and my skin is not the best au natural. 


I am also a notorious over packer; just look at last years travel makeup bag. Half of that I didn't use. This year I'm trying to keep it a bit simple. Bring the basics and not as many options, so my bag can be a bit lighter. If I have sample sizes than they are my obvious choice over my full sized products.

My bag holds:
Benefit the Porefessional
Revlon Colourstay Foundation in Ivory
Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer In Fair Neutral
Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Baby Love
BareMineral Original Mineral Veil 
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light
Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate
Benefit Hoola
Benefit Gimme Brow
Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Nude-ist
Nyx Liquid Suede in Sandstone
MAC Lip Pencil in Boldest Bare
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray


There are a few products I'm packing that are nearing the line of excess, but I've got reasons for taking them. My Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder will give such a beautiful glow to my face in the Florida sunshine, and I'm taking two different lip products just incase I want to change it up. I'm not taking eyeshadow because, due to having extremely oily eye lids, that will just fade far too fast.

Two different questions for you guys this week! What is the one must have product that you travel with? And what should I be picking up over in the states?

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
