Weekend Warrior

This is what I brought with me on our weekend trip to Kingston last weekend.

You don't see much here, but I love samples and gift with purchases because they are the perfect size for traveling. I rarely ask for samples because I'm chicken like that so I always secretly hope the sales person will just throw in samples without asking. Unfortunately, I also rarely ask for assistance and advice so that doesn't help things along.

Anyway, let's see what we've got here:

-Pringle of Scotland makeup bag that was castoff from a friend
-Cargo OneBase Concealer & Foundation in B25
-Eyeliner brush for my eyebrows
-Annabelle felt-tip liquid eyeliner
-Cargo neutral palette
-Blum Naturals exfoliating towlettes (LOVE THIS!!)
-Makeup Forever Smoky Lash mascara from Sephora LashStash kit
-L'Oreal Lash Boosting serum
-Lancome Color Fever lipgloss in Rouge Magnificence
-By Terry Lacque de Rose replenishing lipgloss in Sassy Rose
-Shu Uemura eyelash curler

If space was at a premium, I could easily go with this for a much longer trip.

You can check out more Blum Naturals products at Winners in Canada stocks a lot of this line. I love their moist towelettes and did a happy dance when I found them in little boxes of 10. They come in different types such as exfoliating, age prevention, combo & oily skin, etc. They smell wonderful, feel gentle, but are tough enough to remove mascara.


  1. wow...that's it?? my moisturizing routine alone would be in this bag...go, girl!

  2. babbahahahah what Court said. I usually bring a whole make up case, yep sad but true.

    I got some great samples this weekend from Origins and Sephora. I've used the products and loved them so I will be buying that shiz.

  3. I love seeing what's in other people's makeup bags... your stash reminds me of the everyday essentials that I carry in my purse. But for travel, I would definitely be carry wayyyy more. I'm pretty impressed - haha.

  4. Isn't it amazing what we can live with when we have to? I finally put together a makeup bag that just has what I NEED, and then I have three more under the sink of all the other fun stuff - but it's so much nicer to have the essentials all together and ready to go if needed.

    Fun pink bag, too!

  5. I am really really lazy and have a bad skincare routine. I just slap on some cream day and night and that's it.

    I'm going to look like an old hag in about 10 years. :(

  6. I usually have too much dirty laundry in my bags to fit a makeup case. Everytime we go to our parents', we bring laundry because the apt charges us $2.50 a load. HIGHWAY ROBBERY!!

    When we go on our wedding trip in about a month, you can get I'm bringing a giant makeup case, tho.

  7. Hey Alison! What a small world. I remember you from Laundro! ;)

  8. It's so true. And funny enough, I also have 3 bags under the sink full of makeup and a single box of 'daily items' on the counter. It's so much more convenient when you're in a rush early mornings.
