I took a few snapshots of the two bags of beauty items I bought along with me on my flight to San Francisco. These are just stuff I brought along on the actual flight. I will mostly probably post another entry on "what's in my travel makeup bag" mid-way on this trip.
[Woke up a little too early this morning, and since it's too early and cold to actually head out and do anything, it's great time to edit some pictures, laze in bed, and do this entry]
We got in last night, and it was ------- BUT ---- I shall not digress!
It's a total of almost 20 hours on the plane, and my routine went something like this:
- boarded plane with full makeup
- transit in HK
- HK to SF part of the flight: removed makeup, slapped on my Chanel Sublimage cream mask
- 4 hours before touching down: wiped off the mask residue with a lotion soaked cotton pad, moisturize, and put on simple makeup
- simple makeup: foundation, blush, brows, a little liner, gloss
- stepped off the plane looking relatively fresh
This is a good time to bring along all the sample products I have, and put them to good use. And in case anything needs to get dumped, it isn't such a 'heartpain'.
Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil
Freshel Whitening Cleansing Cream, Lotion & Milk
Bliss Tidy Towel
Chanel Sublimage Regenerating Cream Mask [I scooped into a little tub which is enough for 4 - 5 uses]
Clarins Eye Serum & Cream --- skin around the eyes need extra protection from the dry air!
Clarins WP Night Cream --- in case I didn't end up using the cream mask
Contact Lens Case loaded with solution inside -- I didn't wear my disposables
[full-sized skincare items are in my checked in luggage - I brought along serums which are almost out, so I can toss them away before I return]
Lancome Dual Finish Powder
EA Ceramide Foundation sample tub
Shu Uemura Pro gel cealer
[not pictured] Veld Fatal Beauty primer thingy
NARS Abyssinia e/s
Sleek Pomegranate Blush
Clarins Hydra Nude lippy
Selected blushes for face, eyes and brows
Sonia Kashuk concealer palette
Mirror with Light [bought in HK from my March trip]
[I have more makeup items which are checked into my luggage]
[and yes, I took the two pictures above in my seat on the flight!]
My sister & I pre-flight:
Some pictures we took yesterday upon our 10pm arrival, and we roamed around the hotel area:
Supper at a 24/7 Dinner
[it's about 11 degrees here at night]
sis had marinated grilled chicken while I had a salisbury steak
lesson learnt: never order a main course EACH
Taken just now, when I woke up this morn and couldn't get back to zzz.
all pictures here are taken with my iphone - it was late last night, and I didn't want to seem very touristy with my camera out on the streets.
Time for shower & breakfast!
Thanks for looking!
