Whether you’re jetting off for a quick beach weekender or diving head first into a new city, checking in suitcase is a drag. To get around this travel woe, pack these non-liquid beauty products that you can just throw into your carry on, so you can roll off the plane and start your adventure right away.
#1: For Your Eyes… Laura Mercier Caviar Stick, $49, www.sephora.sg
This is one awesome bad boy that you will keep reaching out for, even when you’re not on vacation. You can do a one-and-done look with a single colour, or layer it up with other shades for a more intense look. It doesn’t budge, or crease and the colour range makes them oh-so-easy to wear.
#2: To Clean the Grime of the Day… Tarte Frxxxtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser, $35, www.sephora.sg
Why risk spilling a liquid cleanser in transit when you can use a cleanser that reminds you of Push Pops? The Frxxxtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser definitely makes travelling easy — swipe on, wet face and massage it in before washing it all off. It’s not drying, but it is a physical exfoliator so apply with gentle pressure.
#3: For Good Brow Days… Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil, $42
A retractable, pigmented eyebrow pencil that makes sure your brows are serving a good dose of attitude all day. There are multiple shade options to choose from, the thick and thin ends of the brush help with your precision.
