Looking at this picture reminds me of that meme of the cat looking at a wall of snow thinking ‘well would you look at that mess’. No? Never seen that one? Shame. I mentioned earlier this week that I could not and would not pack light – you may be saluting my brilliant memory there but I must confess I wrote that post minutes ago.
I don’t think this lot is too bad, most of the items are sample size or rather small which is why I chosen them (or at least half the reason.) My skin is beginning to clear up (praise theee lord) so I’m opting for this new Estée Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream (£29), sounds like the dream am I right? It’s good coverage but still looks natural on the skin and the glow it offers is just divine. I also have my Soap & Glory Hocus Focus Illuminator (£11) packed for keeping my skin looking even and dewy.
I also took with me the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (£20) which is super compact and yet has everything I need to create every makeup look I’ve ever need. I have really got in to using this palette lately, despite never really having much time for it in the past. It’s a winner!
You may have also spied the lovely Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light (£38), oh how I do love this little wonder. It’s more softening and pore-minimising than highlighting, in fact it barely shows up on my skin at all – but it does really work for make my skin look just lovely.
I have a few Elemis skincare samples to take with me, my skin always gets a bit dehydrated when I’m the move so I always make sure to take a moisture mask. I don’t really ever notice it any other time but I hate the tight, uncomfortable feeling that comes with it.
Seen here is also the Elemental Herbology Purify & Soothe Cleansing Balm (£30), I love this stuff and it’s great for lazy cleansing!
No doubt a few more skincare treats will find their way in to my stash, or perhaps I will “forget” to pack any at all and I’ll have to stock up at City Pharma? Now wouldn’t that be a crying shame…
Have you tried any of these?
