What's in my Easter vacation travel makeup case?

This post was inspired by this post by Pleasureflush, I really liked her post so I thought I'll do one as well.

I have been back to university for about a week now and still haven't unpacked completely. I have a deadline for a piece of work on Friday so been working on that all week and I have almost finished it now, so I thought why not take some pictures of what I took home with me over Easter vacation before putting them back. Easter vacation was 6 weeks and I didn't go anywhere, just stayed at home and relaxed while doing some work as well, *sigh*, the life of a finalist...

Anyway, I'll show you what I took with me, bearing in mind that I was home for 6 weeks and I know I always over pack. 



 Face products

 Other eye products (I forgot about Satin Taupe for the Eyeshadows photo)

 Lip products (and the cheek products that I forgot to include in the Face prodcuts photo)

Okay, I know it's an awful lot of products that I took with me, but I was really trying to cut down when I packed, for Christmas Vacation, I actually took home all my makeup! So I see this as an improvement and I am proud to say that all the products have been used at least once! But about 70% of the products have only been that once. I think this is a great way to experiment with products, not taking everything means I need to come up with more ideas on how to use one product.

I bought with me the Urban Decay palettes because I didn't really use them much, I think they're great palettes but sometimes I found that because they contain so many colours, I have to think about what combination to use, so I always just go for the simple eyeshadow duos, trios or quads when I'm doing my everyday makeup. Taking them home with me really made me appreciate them more.

And finally a NOTD - Barry M 308 Berry Ice Cream (I think this is the right name).


  1. I love, LOVE that big red case you have everything in. Where did you get such a glorious thing?

    It's actually a gift with purchase from Clarins, my mum uses Clarins skincare since forever and she always gets really nice gifts. Although the Clarins gifts these days are not so good any more, because of the economy I think.

  3. lol you r like me...i dont understand the first thing of packing light...and i always carry too much cosmetics whenever i have to go anywhere~~~but the nail polish is very nice on you, lilac is very hot this season, and the colour is soooo creammy~~~

    btw im holding a giveaway at my blog, care so sign up and try your luck???? ive got many prizes~~


  4. thx you so much for following and enter my giveaway, as for the impassioned lipstick, i havent got the chance to play with...havent really put it on my lips yet, but id say its a very bold in your face pink, but it has matte finish which i like...cuz hot fushia pink with pearlly shimmer finishes are sometimes too much..hope this answers your question~~~~

    have a good day
