The Lipstick League – Week of 3/6/17
Question of the Week: You’re going on a trip. Tell us what beauty products you bring in your carry-on (3oz or less, remember!)
EauMG’s Answer: Great timing. I’m leaving for Charleston tomorrow and currently getting my products together. When I travel, I abbreviate my routine. I also try to pack solids where I can (like Olay Daily Facials, bar soap and solid lotions/cocoa butter sticks, sunscreen sticks). My carry-on includes boring stuff like contacts, Marvis toothpaste and travel-size hand sanitizer. For makeup I include whatever mascara, foundation and concealer I’m currently using. I usually include a liquid lipstick, eyeshadow primer/cream shadow and liquid eyeliner. I always carry a few perfume samples. For skincare, I try to keep it simple and use travel-size bottles. I’ll take a travel size mist/toner (like this one from Lalun), eye cream, serum, moisturizer, oil (which I can also use in my hair) and sunscreen (like La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted because it doubles as a skin tint). I usually just buy a cheap shampoo/conditioner wherever I arrive. One of the things that I always miss when traveling – my products. I love to come home and back to my usual extensive routine!
Speaking of this upcoming week. I will be out of town and taking a break from my laptop. “Purple Flower Week” is scheduled. I will be reviewing perfumes with predominant purple floral notes like hyacinth, lilac, iris, violet in celebration of spring. Please stop by and read them! I will not be approving comments until later in the week.
