Travel makeup Essentials // Drugstore Edition

Hello darlings

Two weeks ago i popped down to Devon with my family, for a few days, we took baby Isaac on his first little holiday. Being a new mum means i only have a certain amount of time to get ready in the morning and i'm on a budget now so i thought i'd show you guys my drugstore travel essential makeup products.
Maybelline Satin Finish Foundation (£7.99) this is a new one for me, i mentioned it in my March Favourites and i'm obsessed! i can't believe i hadn't tried this foundation sooner. Its a perfect satin finish, great for people with dry skin. Collection Lasting Perfect Concealer (£4.19) i use to love this so much so i picked up and new one and took it on holiday with me. Although i do like the coverage and how long it lasts i found it a little orange/dark on my skin. I purchased it in the shade light, but i don't remember it being like that, maybe i've just become really pale! Or got a dud one. To set my foundation and concealer i took the Seventeen Powder (£4.49). I always have one of these in my makeup bag, its the perfect mattifying powder. Although i have quite dry skin already so i don't need to be made matte but i love how long this makes my foundation last. No mater what foundation it always works! i was looking on the Boots website, it looks like they've changed the packaging. Lastly for base the Makeup Revolution Contour Palette (£8.00) i'm obsessed with highlighting and contouring and this palette is the best for both i've found so far. It has the perfect brown shade for my skin tone and i've even hit pan on the highlighter i love it so much!

I went for the easy option for eyebrows, i just took with me the Maybelline Brow Mascara (£4.99). I think this stuff is great, its a good colour match, lasts all day and doesn't make my eyebrows look hard and stuck together! Another great brow mascara is the L'Oreal one but this one was the one i had to hand. The Freedom 32 Innocent Palette (£8.00) is my latest palette, i chose this one as it was a great range of colours, gave me lots of options for day and night. Its a good size to travel with and as its my new palette it gave me a chance to have a good play with it! Another Maybelline product, i think they are my favourite drugstore brand and why i won so many of their products, is their Master Liquid Liner (£5.99). I've repurchased this liner so many times! It has the perfect size tip, it doesn't smudge and lasts all day. Its the perfect liner for people who are beginners or who struggle with liner. This is the last Maybelline product, i promise, the Push Up Mascara (£7.99). I have to admit it took me a while to purchase this mascara, i saw it all over social media but it had really mixed reviews. You could tell the positive ones were sponsored ones, so i was unsure, but i found it in B&M for about £3 so i though why not try it. I'm pleasantly surprised, its not as good as the Lash Sensational but i definitely prefer it to a lot of mascaras i have tired. It give me length ad volume but is a little clumpy so i wipe the wand before i apply the product to my lashes, 

Lastly this is one of my oldies but goodies, Kate Rimmel '08' Lipstick (£5.49) its a classic nude shade that goes with every look i come up with so its the perfect choice for my travel makeup bag. 

I'd love to know what staples are in your makeup bag? 
Have you tried any of these products?
