Last week, I went away for a couple of nights on a uni trip. It was all expenses paid which was even better! We had a coach the whole time and drove to various spots in the country. First stop was Tamworth, where we spent 2 days/nights and then 2 days/nights in Taree. I had a great time and learnt a lot of useful things. We also hit the pubs which was awesome. Anyway, here are a few things that I took along that were immensely useful...
Hooray for sample sizes. The Pelactiv cleanser and Uriage Moisturiser are from Lust Have It boxes. The Pantene samples were from Pinch Me. And if you saw my review of the Garnier Micellar water, you'll know that I absolutely loved it. But it is a huge bottle, so I decided to splurge on a mini Bioderma. Best decision ever. Would anyone be interested in a Bioderma vs Garnier comparison?
Clinique Long Last Lipstick in 'Pink Moon'
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
MAC Powder Blush in 'Feeling'
I packed very light when it came to makeup. Other than essentials (mascara, eyeliner, concealer), these are the other bits I threw in. The foundation is excellent as it provides full coverage, but the main reason I took it was because it's a very light tube and it's made of plastic. Having a glass bottle of foundation smash in my suitcase would be a disaster. The blush is kind of a boring colour in pan, but it's very versatile and natural. It matched all my outfits which was good. And the lipstick is a pretty fuschia-pink which isn't super bright, but pretty enough to add some colour without going overboard. I only wore this at night time (I used it in a previous FOTD - check it out here).
And those are the more interesting things that were packed in my suitcase. Do you prefer to take sample sizes for short trips away?
