Packing Makeup Lightly for Summer Travel

Ecotools Lovely Looks 5 Piece Set3

So how do you pack makeup lightly for Summer Travel? I know I personally want to take everything with me! And I do really mean everything, literally. I’m just not a light packer and it’s impossible for me to settle on a single eyeshadow! I need like 100 choices.

This year, I didn’t really yet take a long vacation. In May I was away for nearly two weeks but for the Summer I decided I’d do a lot of weekend trips and one big getaway in the Fall. During my recent travels I made my head hard to pack super light and that meant I really had to down size on what I packed makeup and beauty wise. Because believe me given the chance I’d just take my entire makeup collection with me.

So I made a promise to myself I’d be ALL about traveling makeup lightly this Summer.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Garnier Cleansing Micellar Water

I thought I’d take a moment today to review Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water since cleansing waters are becoming so popular here in the US and having a bit of a trending period. There are a great number of budget friendly options available at the moment like Simple Cleansing Micellar Water and Boots Botanics All Bright 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution.

But, by far, the greatest deal I’ve come across in the cleansing water world is Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water. It’s dirt cheap for a huge bottle. carries on sale for $5.30 plus they often have 15 to 20% off coupon codes you can use! Off sale, it’s typically around $7 to $8.

Better still would be if Garnier actually releases this in the US so we don’t have to wait for slow airmail to get our fix but until they do I don’t mind purchasing online that much particularly because this is very large bottle that will last a while.


Colourpop Sheer Lippie Stix Review & Swatches

Colourpop Lippie Stix Sheer

Colourpop Sheer Lippie Stix ($5) launched earlier this week in eight permanent shades. With the introduction of Colourpop Lippie Stix Sheer, there are now a total of four finishes in the Lippie Stix family!

Colourpop Sheer Lippie Stix promise sheer color with a lightweight, comfortable feel on lips with a formula that contains organic coconut butter as well as vitamin E. These are by far my favorite edition of Lippie Stix to date and believe me they are far from sheer!
