What's in my Travel Beauty Kit11:22:00 AM
Good Day ladies! As the titles suggests, I will be showing you my choice of travel beauty essentials which I brought with me during my 3-day trip to Manila last month. It's a mix of makeup and skin care products which I've been using most of the time.
Since it's just a short trip, I only brought one medium sized backpack from Deuter Sport and a small sling bag from Parfois. (I forgot to take photos of those...hehe) Which means I really had to pack light. And I had to fit my son's and my own clothes in one backpack, but I did it! (feeling proud ^_^)
I brought a tiny amount of Mac Brush Cleanser which I transferred in that small atomizer, two small makeup bags, (the pink one is from Clinique while the gray one is from Estee Lauder) and a small Clinique tin can which was from their bonus kit. You won't believe how many skin care products actually fit in that tiny can.
Those who already own this Clinique bonus kit, would know what I'm talking about. It's practically just about the same size as your palm and I have to say this thing served me well.
These are the skin care products that I brought with me during the trip. All of which are travel sized. I will name them from left to right. First is the Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base (it's sample size that I got from sampleroom last year), Loccitane Hand Cream (travel size which was a gift from fellow beauty blogger Phoebe), Mary Kay TimeWise Target-Action Eye Revitalizer (will review this soon), Clinique Rinse-off Foaming Cleanser Mousse, Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray (all from the Clinique bonus kit), VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Moisturizing Protective Lip Balm 60, VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Face Cover 70 (bought at ZaloraPH) and Lastly, the Snoe Star Night Star Bright Nigh Perfecting Toner. (bought at the Snoe Beauty Stall at Metro Ayala Cebu)
I knew that it would be hot and humid in Manila, so I thought about the weather and my current skin condition when I decided to pick these to bring with me. This means, that I might bring something different on my next trip this coming October depending on my skin issues at the time.
I honestly had a hard time choosing which makeup products I should bring especially when I was picking out lippies. (I know you would be confused too if you had more than 20 lipsticks in your stash. hahaha)
So, let's break it down. First off are my lipstick picks.
Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss in Sunset Kiss
Mac Retro Matte Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous
Mac Satin Lipstick in Rebel
Mary Kay Concealer in Beige 2
Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC35 (forgot to include in photo)
Mac Powder Blush in Harmony
The Balm Mary Lou Manizer
The Balm Frat Boy
Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Chic Brown
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (sample size)
Mac Mineralize Eye Shadow in This &That
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Dark Brown
Mac Brow Set in Beguile
Now, that I'm looking at the makeup products I packed for the trip, I honestly feel relieved that I didn't bring so much stuff.
These are the makeup brushes I brought with me and yes, they are travel friendly too. I was honestly thinking of bringing the Sigma Make Me Cool Travel Kit, but I changed my mind, since I felt like my current choices would be so much lighter compared to the latter.
Makeup Brushes (from top to bottom)
Charm Luxe Retractable Kabuki in Gold
BYS Angled Brow Brush
Marionnaud N°38 Eye (angled and spoolie dual brush)
Sigma F40 Large Angled Contour Brush
Elf Mineral Bamboo Complexion Brush (travel size)

There are certainly a couple of products here that I could do without. I will have to improve my travel beauty essential picks on my next trip.
Until next time.
