Travel Make Up

My essentials from my last trip. I kept it simple...and all teeny tiny!
Sephora Event Entry Eyeshadow Palette, Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation in Meet Me Latte, Smashbox Hydrating Perfecting Powder in Light, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Memorable, Chantecaille Rice + Geranium Foaming Cleanser,  Tarte Lipgloss in Kam, and Caudalie Eye & Lip Serum, Cream, and Radiance Day Cream

The Smashbox foundation is now my favorite. I'm wearing it as I write this! Unlike a lot of other loose powder foundations, it doesn't dry out my face and create wrinkles. I'm serious! With some powders, I get creases where I don't naturally have them. This product is described as hydrating, and it rings true! It also blends really well.

My go-to blush for a very long time was Tarte. So you already know I give it a thumbs up. The only thing with this color is that it has a bit of a pearl, shimmery effect. And sometimes you don't want that. The lipgloss: two thumbs up.

This was the first time I tried the Buxom Weightless foundation. (Thanks, Lindy!) It felt so light going on. Weightless, indeed. It also makes me happy that there's some good stuff in there: vitamin C, tamarind seed, and marine algae extracts.

I am in love with the way the Chantecaille cleanser foams. And it's so gentle while effectively washing away makeup! Another cousin Linda gift!

When I asked the Sephora associate what was a good, natural brand for moisturizers and serums, she packed me off with samples of Caudalie. The full sized versions are pricey, but I dig the fragrance, absorption, and the effects on my skin (can we say soft?!). I don't think all of the products in the line are 100% natural, but most consist of no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.

The Sephora eye shadow was just okay.  A lot of colors brushed on unevenly.  But it did come in a beautiful glittery case.
