Packing Makeup For Travel/Vacation

I'm packing for a vacation right now, so just want to do a quick post to show you what all I carry.

Husband: "I'm telling you, honey, pack very light this time. I am telling you, you don't wanna go over the limit." *Rolls eyes* As if I don't know that.

So here are all the makeup products I'm taking with me:

Primer ~ Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover. I like this coz it's non-greasy

Foundation ~ Revlon Colorstay Oily/Combination. Coz I'm going to hot & humid countries, I want a matte finish foundation.

Concealer ~ MAC Studio Finish Concealer, Laura Mercier Undercover Pot

Powder ~ The Body Shop Loose Powder
  • Benefit Coralista (of course)- Coral
  • MAC Pink Swoon - Pink
  • MAC Bite Of An Apple - Bright
  • Lakme Cheek Artist Kiss Of A Rose- Natural aka My cheeks but better blush
  • Bronzer ~ Bourhois Delice De Poudre
  • Contouring/Shading ~ Mac Sculpt & Shape powder (not shown)
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Mac Pro Palette of 4 shades- Espresso, Honey Lust, Satin Taupe, Beauty Marked
  • Inglot Green Eyeshadow 475 (Swatches here)
  • Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Mould- Grape (Swatches here) I like to use this as a base for subtle smokey eyes.
  • Lotus Herbals Kajal
  • Colorbar i-Glide Eye Pencil in Cocobar - Brown 
  • Rimmel Two-tone Eye Definer - mainly for the white side of the pencil.
  • Mascara- Revlon Grow Luscious (review here)

  • Nude ~ Mac Patisserie (Swatch here)
  • Lilac ~ Inglot Lip Paint #59 (Swatch here)
  • Pink ~ MAC Kissable Lipcolour Vanity Fair (photo here)
  • Hot Pink ~ Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #36 Satin Fuchsia (swatch here)
  • Red ~ Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Moulin Rouge (swatch here)
  • Orange/peach ~ Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in Torture (Swatch here)
  • Lip Balm ~ Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava (Swatch here)
  • Face ~ Sigma F80 Flat Synthetic Kabuki for foundation, Coastal Scents Wide Bionic Buffer Brush for powder, Sigma F55 Small Duo Fibre brush for blushes, Sigma F05 Contour brush, Prestige Kabuki for bronzer
  • Eyes ~ All all the Sigma Eye brushes + E45 & E25 blending brush
For body- legs, mainly
  • MAC Bronze Body Oil ~ Finally I'll be able to use this! :). I'll sit by the pool wearing a bikini, a big hat & sunglasses and rub this all over my body... lol...I'm kidding! =D
Looks like a lot but they all fit in this one vanity bag :)

That's it, except for 3-4 things I'm carrying in my handbag makeup bag. "What a good girl", he says now ;)

What I'm not taking (anymore):
  • Nail Polishes & Nail polish Remover ~ Will buy from there.
  • Body Lotions, Shampoo & Conditioner ~ Too heavy. Will buy from there + hotels provide them :)
I won't be able to blog much for the next 2 weeks. But will probably post random stuff regularly in Facebook & Twitter

We're going to Kuala Lumpur again (do I hear snorting? Hehe... What can I say? I love that city) and we'll be in Singapore for a couple of days in between- just for Sephora for me & HMV for the man =D.
I'm kinda scared of KL coz I read that there's a serial acid splasher over there, but it could also be my excuse to pack an Esprit pink umbrella with white polka dots, I'll never get to use otherwise (people there are advised to carry water bottles & umbrellas in case they encounter the acid psycho/s.) But it sounds more scary coz I read about it today, coincidentally, which is weird since I'm leaving tomorrow. Anyways, I hope they get caught soon, otherwise paranoia will rule all the days.

Till next time, bye...take care! <3

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
