Vacation Makeup

Hey everyone! I'm currently on family vacation, and I thought it was worthwhile to show the cosmetics I took with me and my thoughts on them, enjoy! 

Lancome cosmetics bag (gift) and random travel brush set (not sure where it's from) I tried my best to pack products that are travel-sized/travel-friendly 

Caudalie Cleansing Water to go: I bought this recently after dying to have it for months now and I thought it would be perfect to bring on my trip... I will post a full review soon! 

Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment: I don't have very bad skin, but I brought this to treat the occasional breakout I might get during traveling. It works pretty well and I like that it goes on and dries clear. 

Elf Highlighter/Concealer Duo: This is probably my favorite under-eye concealer to date and especially because it is $3. It's a little light on me now in the summer but the medium shade would be too dark so I think it's just fine. 

Lancome Absolue Premium Moisturizer SPF 15: I got this in a gift set a while ago and although it is too thick for my oily skin, it's perfect protection for my neck and hands 

Kiehls Super Fluid SPF 50: Absolutely love this... high protection, feels like nothing on my face, doesn't leave a white cast

Clarins Eye Contour Cream SPF 30: Very lightweight but moisturizing, and high protection! 

Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint: This I got when I used to belong to Birchbox and in the winter, it was waaay dark and orange on me. It's now the perfect glowy tan shade on me and I really love it. Even though it "luminizes" your face and I've been very shiny lately, it doesn't make me look overly shiny and it's very natural looking 

Urban Decay Primer Potion: a staple 

L'oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Liner: my favorite liquid liner! 

Estee Lauder More than Mascara: Even though I try to avoid expensive mascaras, this is an unbelievable one for crazy long, voluminous lashes. I wish I brought another more daytime appropriate one, but with one coat it can work. 

Tarte Eye Couture Day-to-Night Palette: This is my favorite wearable eyeshadow palette and it has everything I need for traveling 


Benefit Posietint 

Korres Lipstick in Natural Pink (review soon) 

Clinique Lipstick in Pink Beach (perfect warm shimmery pink for summer!) 

Fresh Honey Sugar Tinted Lip Balm (see last post for review) 

Kiehls Lip Balm in French Rose (one of my first posts was on this!) 

Covergirl Lip Perfection in Heavenly Paradisque 

Mac Lipglass in Underage (review soon) 

Estee Lauder Rich and Rosy: for a bright pop of color 

Sally Hansen Overnight Lip Recovery: a staple 


Sonia Kashuk Creme Blush in Rosey 

Clinique Palette: I only use the bronzer side which I love (True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer in Sunkissed) 

Thanks for reading :)
