In Coordination With My Closet-New Make Up

Anyone who knows me, knows I love make up! (Too much!) But I'm like Charlie from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory when I get a new product...I put the new item of lust on my desk in front of me, and for weeks I'll torture myself and not use it, sort of the way Charlie would eat that candy bar, just ever so slowly peeling back the wrapper and only nibbling at the chocolate confection found underneath. Oh, I'll peek at the color, maybe test it on the back of my hand, contemplate how I'll use it until finally I can stand it no longer! Well, I'm almost there with the Cabaret Bouquet color palate from "Pop" that I received for Xmas...

I still have it in the cardboard box, but inside is a lovely, velvet covered kit perfect for day and night looks...

The size is perfect for travel...just throw in your favorite brushes and mascara and you're ready to go!

The blush/bronzer duo on the left side will be great for those high sculpted cheekbones that everyone wants. The glosses on the right side are nice because I'm not sure I want to take on the lipstick trend yet...I love the look of the bold lip but it's something I'll have to work with. Having 2 different options for eyes is great, lovely light mattes for a clean neutral look on the right and fun deep shades full of sparkle to the left.

I have some travel coming up and throwing this in will be a no brainer, which makes the act of packing that much easier (and leave more room for shoes!) Normally I carry at least 5 shades of shadow just to go away for the weekend- I always worry I'm not going to have the exact shade (or shoes) that I need.

What's in your travel cosmetic case?

wow, this kit looks amazing! and i'm in love with your chair!!! i usually bring everything when i travel... maybe i'll cut down on eyeshadows and just bring a trio, or i'll just bring one lipstick that'll go with whatever i'm wearing, but i like to bring everything, even nailpolishes...

I don't have a travel cosmetic case. I just have random tubes of lip gloss, mascara, and eyeliner strewn all over the place. You've just made me realize that a travel cosmetic case is in my very near future. I need to buy!! :)

Ha ha I would toally be Veruca 'I want it now'! I can never save things, I at can cope with trying in once then saving but that it! I am obsessed with travel size items and you can get a lot of my fav products in mini, except for my Tigi hair volumiser which is huge but I cannt live without it!

Wow, the colours in that are just beautiful. I do the same thing with anything that I buy! I don't wear / use it for at least a week, I have no idea why!
I don't have a travel cosmetic bag; I'm too lazy to wear makeup, but I do always bring along Rosebud salve. It's the best for conditioning your lips or anything really!
