What’s in my Makeup Travel Bag: Sydney

Last month, I went on a short trip to Sydney for my cousin’s wedding in Hunter Valley. It was already Autumn in Sydney; the days were still hot and humid while the nights were cool and windy. Because it was just a short visit I tried to pack only the essential stuff. So here’s what’s in my travel bag:

Base

First of all, I brought my new sunscreen COSRX Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF 50+ PA+++ (review) for me to try and test it under the Australian weather. I also brought my Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer however I was not really reaching for it that much during my trip. For foundation, I can not live without my latest holy grail, the MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Shameless Youthful-Look 24H Foundation SPF 25. It’s just soooo good; it’s lightweight and it feels so natural.

ColourPop Take Me Home Eyeshadow Review

I was looking for a mini palette as a substitute for my overused Urban Decay Naked Basic. TBH I do reach more for my mini palettes than the full sized palettes, which most of the time stay on my shelf. I was searching for an inexpensive brand, then I realised I haven’t tried any of ColourPop’s palettes. The Take Me Home Palette looks good, and since Tati approves of this eyeshadow in her video, I might as well give it shot.
