What's in my travel makeup bag?

On the 13th June was my 25th Birthday & to celebrate my amazing boyfriend Chris took me on a beautiful weekend away in Paris. 
We traveled in Style on the Premier coach of the Eurostar & had a beautiful hotel in the centre of Gare Du Nord, a perfect spot as your in short travelling distance to all major attractions. We had both been to Paris together before & did a lot of sight seeing then so this trip was purely for relaxation, wondering the beautiful streets of Paris & for my treat.... Sephora shopping! If you would like to see my little Sephora haul I have uploaded a pic on my Instagram(here) & I have some pics of my trip (here).
As a typical woman I may have slightly over packed, but I think I did pretty well on minimizing my makeup bag this time. Here's what I took with me;

Revlon Color stay foundation - through wind, rain, sun this foundation can do no wrong. Full coverage yet still natural & flawless (review here)

Maybelline dream matte powder - To help keep that shine at bay. Why did they have to discontinue this?

LA Girl concealer - This really isn't my fave, but my holy grail Maybelline age rewind had run out so I made do & it did the job (review here).

Mac Pro conceal palette in 'Light' - I used the yellow shade to highlight  my under eyes in the evening for a more glam look(review here).

NYC Sun 'n' Bronze Bronzing Powder in 'Montauk Bronze' - Bargain holy grail bronzer (review here).

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in 'Luminous Light'  - Now this was a risky move bringing this powder along as it is so fragile & expensive! but I simply can't do without it. I wrapped it in two pairs of socks & kept it in my hand luggage so I could keep an close eye on it. Haha yes I realize that's a little sad as I type this out, but I just loooove that powder(review here).

Mac Soft and Gentle MSF - Beautiful highlight to place along the cheek bones, brow bone & can double up as a lid shade(review here).

Urban decay Naked Basics palette - literally has every shade I need in here, for crease lid & blending.

Kiko wet n dry eyeshadow in 208 - I've been really into glowing golden eye looks, so I used this shade on the lid for evenings to change up my look(review here).

Stila stay all day eyeliner - For that budge proof cat wing.

Maybelline the rocket mascara - Holy grail!(review here)

Clinique bottom lash mascara - There will be no bottom lash smudge mishaps happening round here!

Collection 2000 'pink heaven' lip liner - All time fave lip liner, it's a spot on perfect match for my natural lip shade.

NYX Butter Gloss in 'crème brûlée' - perfect gloss for a nude lip(review here).

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Nude Beige - I need my staple pink nude shade with me when ever I travel it can do no wrong (review here).

Revlon Butter Lipstick in 'Berry Smoothie' - it's a quick pop on your lips, no mirror needed lipie. Perfect for the handbag.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - keep everything in place with the lovely sunny weather we had.

15 products! Well girls I am very impressed with myself for that, so lets just not go into how many makeup brushes I brought along with me too haha ALOT.
