25 beauty stuff I bring with me when I travel

Just last week, I had the opportunity to visit Cebu and witness a grand launch of a luxury hotel (will tell you all about it soon!). First thing that goes to a beauty addict's mind... what beauty stuff to bring? Yes, I worry more about my makeup, skin care and toiletries before I worry about clothes to wear whenever I travel. 

With the tons of beauty products on her stash, who makes the cut and joins the Beauty Addict when she goes out of town?

1. Charm Pro Travel Brush Set v2.0

I love this brush set as much as I love my first one. Often when I travel, I bring a palette with me and it's hard to maximize the number of eyeshadows I have with no brush to use. I also don't like to bring my full size brushes for fear that I might lose them or that it'll take too much space in my luggage. The Charm Pro Travel fits snugly and able to carry other makeup items I bring with me.

2. Ellana Mineral Stick Concealer

I keep this on my vanity kit or my clutch bag for quick fix. Stick concealer is easy to apply without the use of brush. It's slim and able to fit into anything. Even my cleavage!! :) hahahaha!

3. Revlon Spa Concealer

I've tested this and like the results. I love how easy to blend this and how it doesn't settle on to my fine lines. Best of all this cover my dark undereyes really well.

4. Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara

I love the matte effect this mascara gives my lashes. With it's fabulash serum in it, I'm also helping my lashes to grow stronger and less prone to shedding.

5. Revlon Brow Enhancer

I might be the next Revlon Endorser for the many number of Revlon products I use. But I notice that this Brow Enhancer is a shy away from my MAC technakhol. It's made of wax and hold my brows in place. The highlighter is not a bad idea either especially when I'm trying to keep people from staring at my eye bags. :)

6. The Body Shop Single Eyeshadow in Golden Peach

This is one of the best eyeshadows I've ever tried. Really compliment my Filipina skin and makes my eyes brighter. I can live with this eye shadow alone. I used this eyeshadow alone in my stay overnight stay in Cebu.

7. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation

A little of this foundation goes a long way. Acts also as a moisturizer, this foundation is on the top lists for when I travel on my good skin days. Since my skin is pretty much behaved, this foundation blends seamlessly. I only use my fingers to apply this during the day. For added coverage and night time events, I use the Charm Pro Stippling Brush for flawless airbrush finish.

8. Lancome Maquicake Compact

For setting and retouching, this one is yet to fail me. Which I highly doubt. This is by far the most expensive compact I own and I can't complain, really. I love the photogenic result and how it keeps the oilies at bay. It is always important to keep a nice looking compact in your clutch especially when attending formal events. It will tie up your whole look. :)

9. Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner

For nights I don't get enough sleep, liners are a sure thing to fake that 8 hour snooze. :) I've tested Maybelline Gel Liner to stay on long hours despite the weather. This one is truly for the travel savvy.

10. MAC Lipstick in Peachstock

This is the first time I brought nude lipstick during a travel. I love how subdued it is. Peachstock is definitely my favorite nude lipstick. :)

11. MAC Studiofix Concealer

Used only for evening events like party and other fornal occasion. I avoid going to the ladies room whenever there is an event so I won't miss anything. Having a concealer that'll stay put for longer hours is a must and so far, MAC Studiofix Concealer is the only one who can do that. :)

12. Lancome Juicy Wear Top Coat

To give a nice glossy finish, I rely on my Lancome Juicy Wear Top Coat to give my lippies a nice glossy sheen. It's not sticky and does not alter the color of my lipstick. This is really an amazing product.

13. La Mer The Eye Balm Intense

Let's make sure that we don't pack on those puffy eyes when we travel. This is the first time I used La Mer as my eye cream and it's proven to be helpful.

14. MAC Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden

Rin or shine, home or not, I use bronzer. So I brought with me my trusty bronzer, Refined Golden. This is by far the best bronzer I've used.

15. Clinique Superdefense SPF 25/PA+++

Do I really need to explain the need to use sunscreen when we travel? :) 

16. Urban Decay Primer Potion sample

Happy that I keep samples of this. I can't live without this! I've tried several eye shadow primers but only this and Smashbox are the ones that work for me.

17. Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Oily Skin Formula

I love the minty feel and the ability to wash the rest of my makeup off. Liquid facial soaps are really best for travelling.

18. Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3

Something I try not to skip when I travel is the clarifying lotion. I refuse to accumulate more dirt on my face and using a toner removes surface and deep seethed dirt on my skin.

19. DKNY Be Delicious

Of course we need to not only look luscious.. we need to smell like it, too. This scent can last for hours. Which is really important if you're touring the place you're visiting. :)

20. Artdeco Blusher #35

Artdeco Blushes are highly pigmented. I've been using mine for over a year now and I've yet to see it hit the pan. This is my no-fail blush. Great thing I got this during a buy 1 take 1 promo, too. It's compact, small and light and is ideal for travel. :)

21. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Mositurizing is needed especially when you're staying in hotel where air conditioning can cause severe dryness to even the most oiliest of skin.

22. MAC Pro Lipstick in Show Orchid

My new party lipstick! :)

23. ONE Naturales Lip tune-up Lip Balm

If my skin tend to dry on airconditione environment, so does my lips. I keep this with me by my night stand as well as my vanity kit. Lip Tune-up tastes great, too. :) hehehe!

24. Charm Luxe Retractable Brush

Not only is this eye candy, this applied face powder beautifully when I retouch. :)

25. Shu Uemura Brightening Cleansing Oil

I try not to skip any of my cleansing method even when i travel. This removes my eye makeup, lipstick and face makeup without too much effort. :)

There you have it, the top 25 beauty stuff I bring when I travel. :) What about you? What are the most important beauty stuff you bring when you travel? :)
