We’ve had the pre-trip packing posts, the posts about our trip. Now we’re evaluating the stuff I packed! There were quite a few new products in my bag so I thought it’d be nice to share my opinion on some of them. I highlighted my favourites in case the wall of text is too much…
If there’s one category of products where I have a lot of high-end favourites, I think it’s lip products. Tom Ford, Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, the Nars Lip Pencils,… There’s just something about a lipstick in a luxurious packaging to put in your bag for some touching up.
Which is exactly why I don’t want to take them with me on a trip, I don’t want risk losing them! The top drawer of my MUJI is off-limits when packing.
Fortunately, there are quite a few awesome budget friendly lip products out there. I’m not calling them dupes, because drugstore products can be brilliant on their own without being considered a shameless copy of a high-end product. So let’s call them alternatives, more affordable alternatives that give you the same result, maybe not the same packaging, but also not the same frustration if you were to lose them.
My eye make up has been simple the last few months, some shadow and mascara and I’m done. So choosing eye products to take on a trip shouldn’t be that hard!
After skin care it’s now time for some make up to go into my suitcase! First up: face!
It’s been a while since I added the first products to my Wall of Fave, time to add some more!
All of these have been covered in previous blog posts, I’ll link to those, so no big surprises today…
