Contents of my travel makeup bag: Cosmetics I'm taking on holiday

Inside my travel makeup bag: How to pack cosmetics for vacations
I had shared some of my travel makeup bags last week. Here are the beauty and skin care products I have brought with me on holiday. Since I intend to shop for makeup, I haven't packed as much as I usually would for a 12-day trip. And, I've kept liquids to a minimum while travelling. I'm taking along a brush pouch which was a gift with purchase from Bourjois and a Debenhams Cosmetics Bag, both of which you can see in my previous post. Wherever possible, everything is travel-sized or a sample, to save space.

Here are the contents of my travel makeup bags.

Inside the Bourjois pouch:

Beautyblender Detailers Brush Set previewed here. I'm using no other brushes now.
Original Beautyblender Pro reviewed here. I'm going nowhere without this.
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer reviewed here.
Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara reviewed here. Which reminds me, I need to buy more.
Max Factor Mastertouch Concealer
Revlon Lip Liner
Garnier Sunscreen from my Glam Guru Box 5. I really want to get this over and done with.
Elemis Hand Cream Sample
Mavala Corrector Pen - I can't live without this!
Gehwol Foot Salve from my Wish Box 15
Benzoyl Peroxide for acne
Dior Higher Energy perfume vial
Bourjois Glitter Liner
Bombshell eyeliner in Amethyst from my Lip Factory Box.

Lioele AC Control Spot Patch - These are transparent stickers that you wear overnight on an emergency breakout. I'm yet to try them.
Max Clinic Cleansing Oil Foam - A dream to remove makeup. I'll do a detailed review soon!
Sephora Smoothing Primer - I'm almost out of Bourjois, so this sachet should be good for an emergency.

The following items will be in my handbag and go through security in a zip-lock. They are:
1. Chanel Rouge Double Intensite in Rose Garnet - my HG lipstick - swatched here.
2. Lancome Rouge in Love Rose Pitimini
3. Cherry Culture lip balm in grape
4. Murad Mattifier
5. Sephora Mattifying Compact Foundation - for touch-ups. They've changed the packaging and made every shade darker, so I might have to swatch these soon.
6. Compact shopping bag. I love this!

Accessorize 32-eyeshadow palette (You Are Everything), as it contains neutrals, greens, blues and purples.
Q-tips and some cotton.

Didn't bring along:
The Konjac Sponge reviewed here. I doubt it'll ever dry and they'll deport me for bringing over sodden items of plant origin or whatever.
Scrubs and body butters. Who has the time?
Blush: I've got bronzer instead.
I'm going shopping the day after tomorrow. Stay tuned for hauls!

  5. wow....that's quite a number of stuff you got there for travel! I have tried to cut down on the stuff I bring whenever I travel nowadays because I dont always use them. But I always end up with more stuff in the end cos I always think "you never know when you might need it" LOL
