A Little Self Revelation- Weekend Trip Cosmetics

This weekend I'm off to Canterbury for a long weekend so all my essentials have been packed up ready to go.
As I was laying them out I noticed a rather strong trend so I thought I'd take a snap and show you guys what I cannot live without.
It's no secret that I work at Lush and am a big supporter of almost all the products that we sell, but despite using my skin care products twice a day I had never really noticed that I use nothing other than Lush bits and pieces.
When it comes to makeup Lush has also crept in to my routine, especially the Emotional Brilliance range, however, MAC is my true love, always has been and always will be. There are only 5 makeup products that I'm taking away that aren't either MAC or Lush. Yet, again, I hadn't noticed. Weird.
So what are my essentials?

Skin care:

  • Lush 9 to 5 cleanser
  • Lush tea tree toning water
  • Lush enchanted eye cream
  • Lush grease lightening spot treatment
  • Lush Imperialis facial moisturiser
  • Lush bubblegum lip scrub
  • Lush dream cream moisturiser
  • Lush soft coeur massage bar
  • Lush sea spray texturising hair spray
My skin tends to be combination and slightly spot prone so I pile on the simple, light facial products. If anyone would be interested in me giving a more in depth skin care post then do let me know, I just don't want to go too in depth now and sound like a walking, talking Lush advert.

  • MAC studio fix foundation in NC15
  • Natural Collection sheer loose powder
  • MAC blush in Fleet Fast
  • MAC blush in Peachykeen
  • Lush feeling younger skin tint
  • Bobbi Brown pastel palette
  • MAC painterly paint pot
  • Catrice Powerstay eyeshadow
  • MAC royal hue shadestick
  • MAC so there Jade powerpoint eye pencil
  • MAC venomous villains my dark magic mineralised shadow
  • Eyeko skinny liner
  • Max Factor false lash effect mascara
  • MAC red racer lipstick
  • MAC girl about town lipstick
  • (not pictured as its in my handbag already haha) MAC moxie lipstick
Phew, so yeah, a lot of MAC and Lush in my essentials stash at the moment. The amount of MAC that I use at the moment is perhaps what surprised me the most as I've always been the sort of person who experiments a lot with different brands and colours but recently I've found that I always come back to MAC because the quality is just so amazing. I just cannot fault it. And as for Lush, its no exaggeration when I say that I've honestly never had more faith in a brand. The reason that I fought so hard to get a job there and that I have a tendency to go on and on about the products is because they totally work and thats an impressive claim to be able to make. If anyone does want to find out more about the skin care then let me know because I'd love to be able to go into a bit more detail about how they work and why :)
