What is in my Travel Bag? 'More Skincare and Few Makeup'

Mar 6, 2014

Travel Makeup Cosmetic Skincare Bag Essentials

Most of the times, I plan things properly but when it comes to holidays and trips, I keep things more 'last moment'. Specially, with full time job and part time blogging, who has got the time to 'pack things for your trip?' So, recently when we went to Baramati for Four Seasons Wine Harvest session, I dumped whatever I found neaby into a bag. I decided what I will wear when I went there! 

But, I seriously thought that THIS WAY of leaving thing for the last moment and deciding on the spot have to stop at least for beauty products so, before sleeping one last time on that cozy bed, I clicked the makeup and skincare that I actually used during my stay there. 

I repeat - this are not the only items I packed. Both cosmetics pouches came in LOADED.

Makeup Skincare Travel Bag India

1. Maybelline Eyestudio Hypersharp Liner - You know you love a product when you buy the very next day it is over/lost. And I got it the next day I found it dried out. Maybelline Hypersharp Liner is my favorite for simple everyday cat or kitten eyes. 

2. Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara - My choice when I need 'okay' waterproof lashes. Simple to use, takes less time and no clumping.

3. Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter - Fluffy and smells nice. Read more.

4. The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Hand Cream - Thick and great for dry legs. More like leg cream than hand cream. LOL more

5. Maybelline Lip Smooth Color Bloom Pink Blossom - For Rs 125, best moisturizing lip balm in India which leaves behind intense berry pink tint. And more your pucker, the color gets more intense. They also have a Peach variant but it does not show well on lips.

6. Sure Women Dry-Shield - For obvious reasons! Alcoholic free and actually stops sweating More

7. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (Sample) - Got the sample as gifts with purchase. I like this but that not much enough to purchase the full size. The fact that it is small, makes it to my pouch. It was very dry there so, I used it.


8. The Body Shop Rainforest Shampoo (in screw-top mini bottle) - My biggest hair related weakness - cannot use Sulphate shampoos. I always carry this in mini bottles depending on my stay duration.

9. Sleek iDivine Oh Soo Special Eyeshadow Palette - My favorite budget palettes which I keep even in my office makeup pouch. I even hit the pan on one color! Swatches here

10. Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser (sample) - Just like that. And I can throw the sachet after use.

11. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (sample) - LOVE this! Gives a awesome glow the next day and even reduced the size of a growing pimple! Now I know why people talk much about this. I am this close to buying it - and lady my fingers are very close now - but I need to check how it works in humid weather. I finished half of this and I need to save it till summer! Gasp....

12. Physician's Formula N*de Shimmer Strip - I love this as much as Sleek Oh Soo Special buy try not to carry it around because the lace design on it is not printed but real lace! Swatches

13. L`Occitane en Provence Delice des Fleus Rose & Violette - Always carry solid perfumes while travelling if you have sensitive nose Read why here. Read more about this here

14. MAC Blush Legendary from Marilyn Monroe Collection - Low on color and does a good job at light highlighter. Thank GOD I got this one!

15. The Body Shop Virgin Coconut Hair Oil (sample) - To remove makeup this winter I loved using oils to melt away makeup and then wash with just herbs silkplash. As this was the only oil available to me in a satchel, I took this because taking oils in bottle can be pain. I washed it off with Kiehl's Cleanser.

16. Ponds BB Cream (in old contact lens case) - It is truly the best BB cream - light, moisturizing, easily blendable and luckily the shade works for me. I carry it around in the green side of the lens case. The white part generally contains Burt's Bees intense hydration day lotion but I forgot to refill before leaving - the reason Clinique moisturizing gel makes into this list.

17. Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation (Sample) - Why carry your full tubes and tubs when you have a sample? I wore it during bar-be-que dinner party. I was carrying more and used just one! LOL

18. Maybelline The Colossal Kajal - Do I have to explain why any Indian girl needs her Kajal? Ha ha..

And just in case you are interested the Pink Pouch is Maybelline's gift with purchase and the Multi-colored pouch is from Jabong.com.
Can you believe there was a time when my entire makeup collection would fit into that Pink Pouch!
