Reviews: Travel friendly makeup

Rate This Post:

I've been doing a lot of traveling lately, and it's always a joy to try and make it through the TSA with just one itty-bitty quart sized bag.    So, when I found out I was off to San Diego for two days, I needed to pare everything down and figure out how to get everything into one carry-on bag and one "personal item" (read: laptop bag).

The first step was to find a replacement for my tinted moisturizer - Philosophy's The Supernatural Airbrushed Canvas ($35 at sephora - see picture at left) was a perfect fit because it's amazingly travel friendly; it comes with a mirror, and because it's a mineral-based powder and not a liquid, it can go right in the laptop bag for a pre-departure touch-up.

I'd read somewhere (and for the life of me I can't find out where on the internet it is - I just spent an hour or so looking for the darn page!) that when traveling, you should only board the plane with mascara and moisturizer before boarding, and then spend the last hour of the flight putting on eyeshadow, blush and foundation (super easy, thanks to the philosophy).  But that meant I needed to find a nice travel compact that was a nice professional look. Enter Stila's Fall Fantasy - A Tale of Enchantment Palette in Moss (right, $32 at sephora), which I'd been eyeing for a while. It's a beautiful green palette in shades of sheer champagne (base), a khaki shimmer green(crease) and a dark green shimmer (liner), paired with awarm coppery brown blush. This looks great with my hazel eyes, and I can tell I'm going to be using it a lot.

Along with my Touch Up Tube 5 Piece Travel Brush by Japonesque, I was all set to go!

Clarisonic Skin Care Brush Voluntary Recall!

Rate This Post:

Please click here to see if your clarisonic is under recall!

I love my clarisonic and hope to not have to do without for a while! But I'm told if yours is under recall, you have an option to get the really cool PINK one, so that might make it worth it...

Update: My Clarisonic is under recall, and I did ask for the pink one, for a $25 uplift, with $10 going to breast cancer research. Yes, I'm a sucker for pink.

Rate This Post:

smashbox faces of fashion
Smashbox is the Today's special value on QVC tomorrow, and the deal looks pretty good, especially since you can get this on auto-delivery (and you can even buy today, as we have the advance order link!), which means you'll get new shades in December 2007, April 2008, and August 2008; or you can buy a single shipment, but I don't recommend it as you'll wish you'd gotten the other shipments when you see them popping up on ebay!)
