What's in my makeup bag: For the Airport

Hello! Some of you already know that I'm heading off to Vietnam this summer for my holiday :D I've already started packing, and my struggle hit when I had to decide what makeup to keep on me and which should go in luggage lol. Plus the whole airport restrictions on stuff you can bring on the plane... in the end, I decided on these items!

Starting from the left going clockwise:

The first product is Etude House BB Magic Pact in No.1 Light Beige. Just to powder my face if I need to whilst traveling.

Second product is Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow. I love this palette because it features 3 shimmery colours, 2 matte, and 2 metallic. The shades are neutral which is what I currently like as I don't want to wear anything so bold and bright at the moment.

Third product is Giorgio Armani Spring Collection 2012 Sheer Blush. I haven't used this blusher yet, it looks quite light in colour so would probably give me natural blush which is perfect! It's a very light peachy shade.

A pack of e.l.f Rejuvenating Oil Blotting Sheets to get rid of excess oil build up on the face before powdering.

L'Oréal Lumi Magique Stylo Touche De Lumiere in Light which is a concealer, if I need to touch up from lack of sleep on the plane and have massive dark circles or something!

Rimmel Soft Kohl Eyeliner Pencil in 061 Jet Black. Pencil always rubs off and fades... I usually use gel liner but pencil will suffice for one day of travel. It's not as dark as gel, but I don't need much for the airport anyway.

And lastly, Rimmel Lipstick in 250 Birthday Suit. For a bit of natural colour.

I forgot to put lip balm in with the photo! I'll have Carmex and Vaseline with me though

I naturally have dark circles for some reason (i do get enough sleep!!) and I have NOT yet found a concealer that covers them up completely.

My first ever concealer I used was Rimmel: Hide the Blemish Concealer in Ivory~

Personally, I found this difficult to blend out smoothly, it always left like bumps and dry patches under my eyes. Dislike. Never again. It doesn't suite my skin type, which is combination if you didn't know already.

The next concealer I jumped to was Revlon Colourstay Under Eye Concealer in Light~

This is over priced for how much they give you! Look at the amount, and for £7.99. I finished mine really quickly. I found this one better than the Rimmel one, because it was a liquid and was easier to work with. Coverage of this concealer was one of the best out of the ones i've tried already... but i'm still scouting out for the perfect one so I wil not be going back to this one just yet. This one is a twist pump sponge applicator, which I liked (i like the clicky noise of it hahaha)

The next one i jumped to is Rimmel Concealer Wake Me Up True Ivory.
This is the current one i'm using at the moment. It's a liquid formula and application is done so with the wand. They give you a lot more than what Revlon gives! Which is a plus. I find that this product is great for my face, I just cover blemishes here and there, my nose and red areas (sometime my whole face cause why not) but it still doesn't cover my dark circles!! Like I can see them still there ):

Which resulted in me purchasing another one which is L'Oreal Lumi Magique Touch of Light Highlighting Pen
I tried this today because I noticed my dark circles was darker than usual... and guess what? IT DIDN'T WORK PROPERLY. Grrrr. The application of this is a twisty into a brush which is new for me, though I find it unhygenic (i'll clean the brush though). A good thing about this one is that it applies smoothly and leaves no bumps and patches.

I have to finish my concealers since I bought them and it's a waste. I'll just have to live with dark circles on show till my next search T_____T
