*denotes products I didn’t end up using.

While I was in Indiana, I ended up visiting the Sephora at JC Penny’s and purchased:

  • tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12 Hour Lipstick in Pure (light rose)
  • 100 point Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Spray

The 100 points was well spent on the UD De-Slick as I desperately needed it for the outdoor wedding and reception on Friday. The tarte lipstick was nice but did not last 12 hours. I’ll be sharing picture of the looks I did while in Indiana.

Some products purchased by me. Some products sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

        KrissyBertram It was funny that nearly the entire restaurant staff at Cheddars commented on my hair! Always love seeing you *hug*

      I am so useless when it comes to packing make u pto take away!I always bring twice as much as I end up using.

        Sirvinya Since I like to travel light and pack as little as possible, I tried very hard to be efficient. I still ended up with a few pieces I didn’t use. It can be so hard to make decisions on what to take!

      and u carry everything with u?

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Icequeen81 When I took my trip this past weekend, that’s all the makeup that I brought with me. I put it in my carry-on bag.

          Phyrra  Handy, cause in your bag is a lil bit heavy, I have a make up bag with standard stuff but indeed in case of traveling more can be needed

      “What’s in my purse” posts seem to be everywhere these days. I’d love to see one of yours! :) 

    • brightlycoloreddaena

      Those tokidoki bags are ADORABLE!

        brightlycoloreddaena Thank you! They’re my favorites!

    • BooBooNinja

      How do you pack your brushes so the heads don’t get misshapen?

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        BooBooNinja I usually pack the brushes in the smaller pencil case by themselves.

    • misfitgirlie

      Cute bags! I’m impressed that all of that fits in them!I’m pretty calculated when I travel. For the most part, it’s for business, so I do a standard neutral eye and usually include a peach blush and a pink blush and a few different lip colors. If I travel for fun, however, I’m all over the place! When I went to Vegas I brought a huge palette and that was silly! I pretty much have to chart my make-up day-to-day in order to pack reasonably.I’m interested in those Tarte lipsticks. I want to check them out in person before buying due to the price…

        misfitgirlie Yeah they are on the pricy side. I liked the color of the one that I got for a neutral.

      cute tokidoki. that’s about 50% more stuff than i take with me, but a nice list to refer to if i’m traveling somewhere fancy :D
