hi gals!!! im back! i had such a great time in Cebu and Davao! can’t believe that my one week holiday is over! boohoo… but i had a blast! i will create a blog about our cebu vacation and will post that on my other site 🙂

for now, i just wanted to share what i usually pack when i go on a vacation. although i am a certified makeup junkie, i tend to get lazy when im on a vacation. usually ill just put on blush and be on my way. but i do take a few things with me “just in case”. 😀

so here’s a low-down of what i pack and take with me (note: the brand / color may differ, but most of the time, the type of makeup i bring is the same)

from left to right, top row to bottom:

1. makeup brushes / laura mercier brush set – i love this set for traveling! most the the brushes are double-ended so i get two brushes in one! i got this as a gift for my birthday last year 🙂

2. concealer / garnier skin naturals light bb instant fairness bb eye roll-on (P299)- i got this when we dropped by watson’s in cebu… i didn’t think that i would like it but i must say it does a great job in covering my dark circles! will do a complete review soon. (yes yes, i have a looonngg backlog of reviews to do. sorry sorry!)

3. eyebrow pencil or dark eyeshadow / bobbi brown metallic eyeshadow in java – got this waaayyy back when i was still living in singapore and i forgot how much it costs (i think more or less P1200). i like this shadow because i can use it as my eyebrow shade, eyeshadow or eyeliner 🙂 multi-purpose products are a must when you’re going on a trip.

4. eyeshadow / MAC mix&match eye shadow (P1200) – i’m into goldish-orange eyeshadows now so i decided to bring this one… usually, ill pack one or two eyeshadows which i think will coordinate (does NOT have to match) with most of the clothes that i’ll bring. i actually ended using the lighter shade more. just a sweep of color on my lids and eyeliner! :p

5. powder blush / tarte amazonian clay blush – since i know that i will be visiting a very humid place, i opted to bring a matte and long-lasting blush so that i don’t have to touch up my face during the day. (not a fan of touching up my face, most especially when it’s all greasy from facial oil or perspiration)

6. cream or blush stain / smashbox cream cheek duo – OR most of the time, i just put on a cream / stain blush because it’s easier to apply. if i want my blush to stick around longer, a trick i do is i apply my cream blush and then apply powder blush on top (for longer lasting power :))

7. tinted moisturizer / laura mercier oil-free tinted moisturizer – i tend to stray away from my liquid foundations when im going on a vacation because (i) it’s not easy to bring around, most of my liquid foundations are in a bottle and i always worry that it might break when i put it in my luggage! or (ii) i just couldn’t be bothered :p that’s what i like about tinted moisturizers, i just apply and blend with my fingers and im done! fast.easy.convenient.

8. powder foundation / pur 4-in-1 pressed mineral makeup – another product that i am loving! again, will post a separate review on this… but the reason i bring a powder foundation is for those times when i feel that i need extra coverage or for those times when we suddenly decide that we want to eat at a fancy restaurant… :p

9. waterproof eyeliner / makeup forever aqua eyes waterproof eyeliner pencil – waterproof is the magic word 🙂 humid weather is the number one enemy of all eyeliners… so it’s best to bring around the best smudge-proof eyeliner you have.

so there you have it! 🙂 hope you liked this post. please feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions / comments.

will be doing back to back reviews soon. i have sooo many things to review! :S

good night everyone! and i hope you have a great week ahead!

mwahs,

because i have been sick almost the entire week and because i wanted to feel better, went on a slight rampage today. hehehe.

here are some of the things i got from PCX and Rustan’s Essences:

1. IN2IT Gel Blush – P259.75 (actually, i retried this when i got home. kinda sucks. really hard to blend! but will try again to see how to make it work better)

2. IN2IT sheer eye colour in forest- P299.75 (i really like this!)

3. Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-on – P 199 (my officemate K recommended this, so let’ see if this works! *fingers crossed*)

4. Prestige Lipstick in Lasting Blossom – P375 (nice color!)

5. theBalm Cabana Boy Blush – P850 (i loveeeeed this color so much that i got one for my sister as well!!!)

6. NARS the multiple in Portofino – (price undisclosed)

dang… spent so much again today! hahaha i think i need to enroll myself in project “no buy” or project “hit pan”. i actually still have a lot of unopened items. :S

oh well, it was a great weekend indeed. wish it could have lasted longer teehee.

good night everyone. have a GREAT weekend ahead!

mwahs,

mrskendz
