Vegas Getaway: What Is In My Travel Makeup Bag

Hi, Beauties!
I'm leaving to Las Vegas for Fathers Day weekend tomorrow. Heading to the BEACH in the DESERT. Yeah, you've read it right.
Mandalay Bay Hotel has 11 acres pool with sand and it is in fact called BEACH! The pool has waves just like ocean.
I've been to Vegas a few times and never had a chance to really enjoy the hotels amenities cuz we used to walk around to see everything Vegas has to offer. This time I'm planning to just relax and chill with a cocktail in my hand at the hotel's beach area. Also will stop by Sephora on Vegas Strip to pick up some stuff for my next giveaway. That's it!
The beach area is for hotel guests only so we had to shell out some greens to book a room at Mandalay Bay in order to enjoy it. Well, I think spending money on experience is the best way to spend money. Experience and memories are the things that last forever.

So what am I packing?
Before we used to drive and I used to pack heavy but now we're flying and we're not gonna check in any luggage. So, it's kinda tough cuz I have to fit every fluid stuff in 1 quart Ziploc bag according to the new flight security requirement.
I'm taking one MAC eyeshadow palette

So after a struggle to choose only much needed products, these are what I'm taking with me.
To my surprise I did a good job fitting everything I needed. So, what's in here?
The samples came in handy!
  • Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer
  • Shiseido Eye makeup remover sample
  • Estee Lauder Cleansing Foam
  • Shiseido White Lucent Softener
  • Shiseido White Lucent Eye cream
  • Clarins Day Cream sample
  • Shiseido Bio performance cream as a night cream
  • Neutrogena Sun Block SPF 70- Thank you Katrina M
  • Purse size perfume
  • Victoria's Secret Refreshing Body Mist- nice and light perfect for beach and airplanes
  • Evian Water Spray-airplanes are crazy drying and it helps a lot
  • My HG Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation
  • Estee Lauder Stay in Place Concealer
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Shiseido Lastin Lift Mascara Sample
  • L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
Whew, what a long list....and it's not it!
Now on to non liquid items that I absolutely have to take with me:

  • Too Faced Bronzer in Snow Bunny- for my body. It's not really a bronzer. It gives beautiful glow to my shoulders and legs. Hit the pan! See how much I love it?
  • My HG Nars Loose Powder in Sephora refillable brush
  • Mac Mineralize Duo- I don't know how to live without it
  • Q-tips and cotton pads- use them everyday
  • Mac travel brushes
  • Almay eyeliner
  • Jordana Brow pencil
  • Stila eyeliner
  • Tweezerman
  • Compact Eyelash curler
These are all the things I can't live without.

Now did you notice that I didn't pack a blush???
Blush will go to the front pocket of my purse! (Kenneth Cole New York)


  • Memoirs Of a Geisha Palette is one thing to keep in your purse. First one on the left is highliter, then perfect blush and a gloss. Great for touch ups and pick me ups. I go to ladies room and apply everything with my fingers, wash my hands and look refreshed.
  • Softlips- essential especially on airplanes. Last time we flew to NY I forgot it and we all had chapped lips that lasted 3 days to heal.
  • Cute- mint tin with a mirror. Discreet way to check on your makeup
  • Bunch of wet wipes
  • Current favorite lippie
NOW I feel taken care of in terms of skincare and makeup!

And of course something to readI know, I know I'm so behind but really didn't have time to read lately. Maybe because I was busy reading your blogs, Ladies! hahaha

Gosh! Pretty long list for a weekend getaway! But hey, a girl gotta do what girl gotta do, right? Or maybe not. I wish I can look and feel good without all these stuff. How about you, ladies? How much do you pack? I might learn something from you!

Have a great weekend!
Stay Beautiful!
xoxo
