My travelling Toiletries and Make Up essentials

Howdy dudes and dudettes

I'm heading back home to Ireland tomorrow for a couple days to see The Script play on Friday night at the Point (the o2) so I thought I would share with you the things I take in my travel toiletries and make up bag. I will try and link most of the products below but for some items this may not be possible. Once I started taking these pictures (which I apologize for the quality, the lighting was awful) I realized I use a lot of products. I travel back and forth to Ireland every so often so I should be use to packing by now.. well you would think so, right? No. I am so hopeless with packing and I'm not quite sure as to why. Possibly because I love to keep things neat and organised in my bedroom and when having to travel and pack it means messing up that organisation and cleanliness and having to shove everything in small compact travel bags. I won't go into detail about what everything is but do be sure to check out the links beside the product names.

These lipsticks needed a close up. - Links in the list above
Rimmel Kate Moss 107 was my favourite for Winter and I'm still loving it! But recently I have bought the No.7 Tranquil Rose lipstick and I love love LOVE it! It's one of those lipsticks that whenever I open my cupboard and see it displayed in my lipstick container I always have to take it out and put it on even if I'm not going out anywhere or if it's just before I'm getting into bed, it's a bit of a waste I know but I just think it's such a beautiful colour!

Do you know what I just realised..? I use quite a good few products. You never really think about it until you start writing a post on it. Most of these products I have mentioned are some of my favourites and although I have never used the Clarins travel size toiletries, which I was given at a hotel convention, I am looking forward to trying them out.

Do you use any of these products I've mentioned? Have you used any clarins products before? If so do let me know, I'd love to hear.
