[unpaid/samples/affiliate/ad] Finally, finally, it looks like we are actually going to get a quick break (so no Friday posts) – after three attempts and one early return from Paris. It’s not my body that needs a break, it’s my head and I can’t wait to be somewhere else. So, fiddling about with how compact I can get my travel make-up is a nice lead-up.
So, all of this….
Fits into this…
A Starbucks gift card (purchased) for size reference. I do hoard sample sizes or mini make-up items – I have a little bag that I keep them in so I can dip in as and when and they mainly come from advent calendars or the SpaceNK (or similar) bundle bags that come up as gifts with purchase a couple of times a year.
The holder, by the way, is from Tiger Stores – I keep my bank card in it so it’s easy to wipe down and you can tap through. In this little bag of tricks – that literally does fit in the palm of my hand, I have a sample size Benetint for cheeks and lips, Elf’s Wow Brow, £4.50 (HERE), Laura Mercier mini Caviar Stick for eyes (these usually come up as sets for Christmas so keep an eye out), MAC Mini Lipstick in Russian Red, £12 HERE (loads of colours – I’m not taking this one, it’s more for illustration but there are glosses too and if I had one, I’d take that!), Mini Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (I notice this is one of the free samples you get with purchase) and Charlotte Tilbury Rock & Kohl (from a Christmas set). So, that’s eyes, lips and cheeks done. I’m thinking I might get one of those little retro beaded purses to fit them in because I need my card holder back!
Do you have any inventive space savers? Please share 🙂
