Hi! I hope everyone's having a great summer so far. I thought I'd just share the makeup products I brought with me to my 4-day beach trip. 

Nivea Sun Whitening Immediate Sun Protection For Face with SPF 50
Obviously, I brought sunscreen with me and I like to use only those sunscreens meant specifically only for the face. I didn't bring facial moisturizer with me anymore, so I intended to use this both as moisturizer and sun protection. I don't have very nice things to say about this product but I'll just save that for a separate review. Nevertheless, it's got really high SPF so it was pretty perfect for the beach.

Clinique All About Eyes Serum
I didn't bring eye cream with me either but this was perfect for moisturizing my undereyes. It's also really great to bring for on-the-go trips since it's really easy to apply and isn't as messy as cream is. I loved having this around!

Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals BB Cream with SPF 26
I just thought this would be really practical if you want some coverage while you're on the beach and moisturizer and sun protection at the same time. I love that it's got SPF 26!

Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15 in Shade 01
This kinda had the same purpose as the Maybelline BB Cream, except I just brought this since it's a different shade and thought I might need it as I might get darker during my trip. SPF isn't as high as the Maybelline BB Cream, but I still appreciated it.

Clinique All About Eyes Concealer in Light Golden
Of course, this was my most important product since I'm obsessed with concealing my undereyes. I loved how easily this could be applied on the undereyes even without a brush.

Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup with SPF 15 in Light
This was another really convenient product since it's made with minerals, it's got SPF 15, AND it's PRESSED. I hate loose powders so I was really glad to have this during my trip. Loved it!

Suesh Mini Mini Flat Top Kabuki Brush
This was the only brush I brought with me to the trip since it's compact and has its own pouch. I basically just used this for my mineral foundation. It's a really great brush to bring with you outside the house.

CoverGirl Brow & Eye Makers Brow Shaper & Eyeliner in Midnight Brown
Brow pencil is the easiest to use on your brows, specially when you're in a hurry. This isn't my favorite brow pencil though.

Maybelline Volum' Express Waterproof Cat Eyes Mascara in Feline Black
The reason I brought this mascara is because it's the hardest mascara to remove. Perfect for swimming!

Body Shop Shimmer Waves in Blush
I didn't get to use this product at all. I just thought I might need it in case I needed to add a little color to my lids, but that opportunity never came up. Nevertheless, I still think it was a great product to bring since it can be used both as blush and eyeshadow.

Lip Balms
Carmex Click Stick Lip Balm with SPF 15 in Strawberry
Chap Stick Classic Lip Balm with SPF 4 in Cherry
Another important necessity - lip balms. I brought two just in case I lost one of them, but if you've read my previous post, you'll know that I favor Carmex more since it's got higher SPF and I feel like it does a better job at moisturizing the lips.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Crystal Pink
I loved having this product around as well because it's got a lovely sheer pink shade - perfect for everyday use, and it's pretty moisturizing on the lips as well.

Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Grapefruit
Didn't get to use this product either but I just couldn't resist not bringing lip gloss with me. :P

Prestige Dual Sharpener
Lastly, another really convenient product since this is what I used to sharpen my brow pencil. Extremely helpful!

So there you have it! As you can tell, I didn't bring much makeup with me. I just brought the necessities and they were more than enough for me. 
What makeup products do you bring with you when you go out of town? I'd love to know.


  1. I like those stuff you brought with you on the beach. A little coverage won't hurt, I agree. :)

  2. Thanks Pammy! I was thinking, I'm not gonna be swimming the ENTIRE time anyway, so why not bring a little makeup with me, right? :)

  3. I also use maybelline's bbcream. and I personally think its my second best bb cream ever! :D missha's 1st hehe :D

    oh BTW. I'm having my birthday giveaway.

  4. Been wanting to try something from Pur Minerals! Good to know you like something from them. :)

  5. Hi Kat! I've yet to try Missha's BB Cream, but I'll probably give it a go once I run out of my Maybelline BB Cream. Oh, and I'll definitely check out your giveaway and participate! :D

  6. Hi Vintage Makeup! I've been wanting to get my hands on the 4-in-1 Pressed Makeup for the longest time as well. I'll probably post a proper review on it in the near future. :)

  7. AWWw I'm so envious of people talking about the beach! It's going on winter in Australia right now :(

    You went so prepared!!! You have inspired me to gear up for my next trip :)

    Btw I'm your newest follower!

  8. Hi Chococcuro! I wouldn't mind some winter right now; sometimes the heat here can drive me absolutely crazy. Where are you going on your next trip? :)
    By the way, I really appreciate your being a follower of my blog!! :D Thank you!

  9. hi i just want to ask you, where'd you buy clinique all about eyes concealer? :) Is it available here in the Philippines?And how much.. in philippine peso! :)coz im planing to buy one. THank you so much!:) Btw, you are really great!:)

  10. Hi Ailene, I actually bought mine when I was out of the country but I'm pretty sure you can get that here in the Philippines too at Clinique counters (inside Rustan's, etc.). I bought mine for around Php 1,400, but I'm sorry, I really can't say whether it's cheaper/more expensive here in the Philippines. I'm pretty sure though that if ever there is a price difference, it won't be so far off. :)
    Thank you so much for the kind words and for reading my blog! I sincerely appreciate it! :D

  11. hi, i also love clinique all about eyes concealer, do you have any other favourites concealer for under eye beside that one?
