Holiday Make Up Bag 'Weekend Away' edition

I went away with Mister Christopher this past weekend for our 3 year dating anniversary. We went to Rye, and despite it being winter the weather was really nice! This is the loot I took along with me for the 3 night stay, it may seem a lot but I love playing around with different looks when I have the time.

I tried to get some organisation going in there, but as soon as the case lifts it all jumbles around.

Illamasqua Concealer
Face of Australia Primer
Face of Australia translucent powder
Bourjois HealthyMix Foundation 52
Clinique foundation
Mini versions of Benefit's new range
Clinique E/S Strawberry Fudge Quad
MAC Painterly Paint Pot
Estee Lauder Orange Pop
Australis palette in Frock and Roll (used here)
Napoleon Perdis eye dust in StarDust
Face of Australia Mousse shadow in Magic Mist

Softlips balm in Chai Latte
NARS Carthage
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy
MAC Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks
Revlon Super Lustrous in Pink Pop
Revlon Super Lustrous in Coral Reef

Jack Black balm in Vanilla and Lavender (reviewed here)
Sleek Blush in Rose Gold
Essence Highlight Powder in Famous Flamingo(shown here)
Lacura blush
NYX Peach
Stila Gladiola
W7 Bronzer/Highlight
So as you can see from the display I've made of my makeup case lid, I brought heaps to play with while I was away! Admittedly not all was used, but that's the pleasure of driving to your holiday destination- no excess baggage fees!!
Scent of the weekend was Guerlain Champs Elysees for moi, and a David Beckham for Chris.
All that was in Chris/ toiletries bag was deodorant and a roll on concealer!
If you'd like to see me review any of the above products, let me know and I'll send them to the front of the queue. Hope you had a great weekend, I'm back to reality now and drinking coffee by the boatload!
