Over the easter weekend I got to visit Palawan for the first time! I absolutely loved it there. Such a pristine place and not too commercialized. As we planned nothing else but to stay on the beach and do beach stuff, here’s all the makeup I brought.
Pixy UV Whitening Two-Way Cake – the only base I brought. I figured I didn’t really need a lot of options, but I definitely wanted to bring one with SPF. I actually hit pan on this already! I’m just also using it up before I buy a refill.
Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Smash – it’s really the most abused base color I use in my stash, and it definitely went into my kit.
Pixy Eyeshadow in 01 Romantic Poem – I just brought this along for pops of color, and the fact that it’s quite small and it has a tiny sponge applicator.
Pixy Blush On in 02 Brown Tea – Again same reasoning as the eyeshadow, being compact and comes with its own tiny brush. I also like that it’s a brown shade instead of the usual pinks and reds, perfect for the beach!
Happy Skin Eye Love View Eyebrow Duo – Among my eyebrow products this claimed to be waterproof (which you’ll actually see in action below!). It also comes with a marker side, in case I really wanted a very polished look.
Fairydrops Platinum Mascara – I brought this for the waterproof factor, and the fact that this is on its last legs and I’m just using it up. Will be sad to see this go, as I can no longer replace this locally.
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Honeysuckle – My recent go-to lip balm, which never leaves my purse anyway.
Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick in Bellissima – The only red lipstick I brought (learned my lesson from my last trip haha!). Which, ironically, wasn’t used on the trip!
Ofra Lipstick in #205 (not pictured) – And the only pink lipstick I brought. This one was used more because I didn’t really feel like using red lipstick on the beach.
All of these were packed in an old small Clinique pouch that was probably a GWP somewhere. I liked that I brought very little makeup here, which matched exactly the use I wanted out of them. It also helped keep my packing light!
