I’m finally back home after a week on the road. One of my favorite articles to read are the “What’s In My Makeup Bag” features in magazines, I thought I’d do a twist on this and share what I brought with me on my trip. I’m usually tend to over-pack but managed to limit my skincare and makeup items to one small carry-all by Bobbi Brown.
Here’s what I brought:
* Chanel Teint Innocence Shell 1.5
* Chanel Double Perfection Compact Tender Bisque 2.0
* Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer Bare
* Laura Mercier Undercover Pot
* MAC Prep+Prime Skin

* Nars Best Palette with Bellisima, All About Eve, Kalahari, Bali

Did I overpack? Yes – but I did end up using everything I brought with me.
FYI – I don’t think the black Bobbi Brown carry case is available anymore, but she has released other variations with beauty products such as the Chocolate Faux Croc case & Rose Gold set (both were Neiman Marcus Exclusives). I’ve seen quite a few floating around e-bay with just the cases.
She also released a single case with her Copper Diamond Collection which is still available for $95. Click to check out her Copper Diamond Beauty Kit. She often releases these kits and cases for her holiday collections.
You also might be able to find one at your local Cosmetics Company Outlet.
