Holiday Packing

October 05, 2011 | , , , , ,
I've just gotten back from a five day family holiday (in Hopetoun, between Esperance and Albany) for my Granddad's 80th.

Before I left I bought some toiletries that I'd been meaning to get for ages, including more cleanser (I use and love Garnier Pure Active Exfo Brusher). While I was there, I noticed that the Garnier Clean Detox Refreshing Cleansing Wipes were on sale so I decided to give them a try. I used them every night while I was away (they were used a total of 5 times) and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I've had a massive breakout. 

While I was away, two things became blatantly obvious; my make up bag is too small and I over pack my make up! I packed a ridiculous amount for the small amount of time that I was away. 

Want to know what I packed? Read on.
  • Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser in Nude
  • Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation #115 Ivory (I'm not too keen on the foundation but I figured it was okay for a family holiday)
  • Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer #10 Light
  • Maybelline Mineral Powder Finishing Veil Powder Light (actually a good, handy powder)
  • Revlon "A Floral Affair" Sheer Powder Blush #460 Hushed
  • BYS Powder Blush #4 Candy Floss
  • Napoleon Perdis Cruise Blush in Atlantic
  • L'Oreal HIP (High Intensity Pigment) Shadow Duo #310 Shocked
  • Rimmel London Special Effects #022 Inspiration
  • Revlon Colorstay "12 Hour Eye Shadow" Quad #06 In The Buff
  • Revlon "CustomEyes" #010 Sweet Innocence
  • Napoleon Perdis Loose Dust Ice Storm
  • Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes kit
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion (depotted
  • Benefit Ooh La Lift
  • Benefit Erase Paste #2 Medium
  • Napoleon Perdis China Doll Eyeliner in Equinox
  • Aveda Eye Definer #922 Lily
  • Covergirl PerfectBlend Eyeliner in Basic Black
  • Max Factor Lash Extension Effect in Black (yes, I finally got the black!)
  • Benefit Bad Gal Mascara Black
  • Covergirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm #265 Sandstone
  • Maybelline Watershine #51 Peach Juice
  • Revlon Colorburst lip stick #065 Rosy Nude
  • MAC Venomous Villains lip gloss in Strange Potion (somehow I managed to lose it and I want to cry)
  • The Body Shop "Born Lippy" Strawberry lip balm
This make up bag is fairly small but somehow I managed to fit all the make up in that. My brushes were packed in a small pencil case. 
As you can see I took a ridiculous amount! I didn't even use half of it but I can never be sure. Oops! I also took the following brushes
  • Nude by Nature Mineral Brush
  • Manicare Precision Blending Brush
  • Foundation brush (I use it to contour)
  • Napoleon Perdis Angle Eyeliner Brush
  • 2 x blush brush
  • 3 x flat eyeshadow brushes
  • 2 x fluffy blending eyeshadow brushes
My make up bag is also ridiculously small and I'm looking to upgrade. If you can recommend a good place to get a large train case (without the shelving, they annoy me!), please leave a comment below.

When I got home there was a parcel for me, YAY! It was a new piece of make up that I'd been waiting a long time for and I think I love it already. I can't wait to review it for you guys. 

Always look your best,
