These days I’ve been traveling so much and sometimes it stressed me out how I have to put my necessities in such a compact pouch :lol:. This is why sometimes I’d like to collect travel sized and mini sized cosmetics and skin care. It would help me a lot whenever I have to travel. So, without further ado, this is what’s inside my current make up pouch these days:
1.Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation
Love it, love it, love it! Raved about it already here if you’re interested. When I want a quick makeup base application, without looking too much for daily wear, this is the one that I’ve been reaching out the most. Love how it stays for a long long hours, love that it doesn’t need so much touch up trough out the day, and love how it enhances my skin while even out discoloration on my skin.
2. The Original “Pink” Beauty Blender
(Not in the picture because I stupidly forgot to include it). Finally gave up and buy the original one after my friend convinced me to get one because she loves it that much. :lol:. We both despise the Real Technique’s one, and I have to say that I love this one way more than the RT and Daiso one. However, I think that the dupe for Beauty Blender that I bought in Germany Drugstore (I honestly forgot wether it was DM or Rosmann, but I think it was DM) still worked better on me. Still need to make up my mind to write a whole review about this one, though.
3. Daiso Wedges Puff
Sometimes I use it for blending under eye concealer
when I feel like it. Em, ehhh nothing special, just a regular wedges puff.
4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown
Definitely one of my holy grail items for eyebrow. A little goes a really long way. While everyone complaining that the formula dried up very quickly, I’m actually enjoying it because it makes me easier to control the usage of the dipbrow for my eyebrows. Worth every penny!
5. Masami Shouko 308 Angled Brush Silver
(Also not in the picture. I’m terribly sorry!) Been using this one for my eyebrow for the past year, and I love how it works well for me despite the cheap price :-D.
6. Bioderma Sensibio H2O Sample Size
Got this one months ago from Sociolla for free, and Thank God I kept it because it’s so useful when I wanted to touch up during the day time or when I wanted to brought it during my travel because of the teeny tiny size <3.
7. Benefit Dandelion Brightening Face Powder
Love this because of the compactness. I hate to waste on product especially when this tiny blush ain’t cheap, so I’m trying hard to wear it more. Surprisingly, these days I pretty like it especially when I pair it with Real Techniques Blush Brush. I like my blushers to be subtle and blend well with the skin, so I wear it only at a slightest swipes and tap the excess powder.
8. Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Eyebrow Mascara
I don’t know if it’s because my hair is in its natural colour these days or if I choose the wrong colour, but I’m not really see a major differences whenever I’m wearing this eyebrow mascara. But yeah, it makes my eyebrow blends well with the dipbrow pomade’s colour, but I just feel like it’s just a so-so product. Will try to write an in depth review later.
9. Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder
Why is this powder have not gone already???? Seriously, this powder is not gone yet even after I wrote its empties review decades ago. Bear in mind that I’ve always wear this powder every single day to set my under eye concealer. Hopefully it will be gone in a few weeks!
10. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
Love the performance from this particular mascara, love it even more because of the cute size! Because, honestly, most mascara that I owned have gigantic size that filled up 30% the size of my pouch! 😦
11. K-Palette 24H Real Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner
My current to go eyeliner because it dries pretty fast in comparison to my other current opened up eyeliners. And it’s comfortable to use. Wrote a whole review about it here.
12. Armando Caruso Brush
I’ve been using it as the applicator for setting up my under eye area. I know that it has eyeshadow brush purposes, but I just love to use it that way, lol.
13. Maybelline FIT ME Concealer
The same like my Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder, why haven’t this one gone already???? Seriously, when I thought that I’m done with this concealer, there are actually more products whenever I scooped it out. 😆 Wrote a review about it here.
14. Real Techniques Blush Brush
Pardon the dirty brushes, I think I accidentally spilled my foundation or something :lol:. Love it to apply my blush lightly! It makes my blush application easier to control and I love the fact that the brush become softer whenever I wash it (see, I’m always cleanse my brush!)
15. Bourjois Eye Shadow Smoky Eyes in Rose Vintage
I honestly only wear the most natural colour to as a base for my eyeliner application, to cancels out any oil in my eyelids. It’s one of the trick that I’ve always did to make my eyeliner stay all day. Put a shimmer-but-subtle eyeshadow as a base, and always set your eyeliner with translucent powder. Voila! Your eyeliner will stay all day.
I know that I forgot to put lip products here because during this trip I just want to keep things as simple and as compact as possible, especially when I’ve always bring a few lip products at my touch up pouch, so I know that I don’t need to put one in here. If you keen to know what those lip products are: They are Make Over Ultra Hi-Matte in Silhouette and Femme Fatale and Addiction by Ayako in Desert Rose.
So, yeah, that’s all from my current go-to beauty pouches. What’s your favorite? Do you have travel sized beauty products to recommend? Please do write your thoughts bellow! 🙂
