However, if I were flying and not carrying on the makeup, I might trade out the palette for the set of 24/7 Shadow pencils because I love the palette too much to risk damaging it.

P.S. I would have to bring brushes and an eyelash curler too but I don’t count them as makeup!

Thanks for using my question! I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s responses.

I’d take Maybelline’s Tattoo Color in Bad to the Bronze, LORAC’s Croc pallete, Tarte’s Lights, Camera Splashes mascara, Urban Decay’s Whiskey liner, Graftobian’s cream foundation in Prima Donna, Tarte’s Smooth Operator finishing powder and Revlon’s Lip Butter in Peach Parfait.

It depends on the vacation! Lol but overall probably:
Makeup For Ever HD foundation
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Makeup For Ever Smokey Lash mascara
Revlon Lip Butter (either Creme Brule or Cotton Candy)
Nars Douceur blush
Too Faced Shadow Insurance

And even those last two are optional. *sigh* I always overpack my makeup when I go on vacation, though…go figure.

Lorac Spring 2012 palette, Lorac bronzer/blush duo 2012 launch, Stila Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black, YSL Shocking Mascara, MAC Myth Lipstick, Rain Cosmetics Gloss, + MUFE Duo Powder Foundation… Crap, I hope that 7 doesn’t include brushes lmao 😉

NARS Pleasures of Paris Palette
Edward Bess Island Rose
Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation
Koh Gen Do Pressed Powder
Cle de Peau Concealer
Guerlain Khol Me Brown
Shiseido Perfect Mascara (Brown)

Only 7??? I’d really have to strategize!!!

1) Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (Oil Free)
2) Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse
3) Nars Blush Bronzer Trio
4) Homemade Unii palette ‘EYES’ – Rock & Republic eyeshadows … Alloy, Exile, Fatalistic, Spy and Wrath. Stila eyeshadow… Barefoot Contessa, Copper, Espresso, Kitten, Moonlight and Twig. Stila #10 eyebrow brush, Stila #5 all over shadow brush and Stila #7 precision crease brush.
5) Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends Translucent Oil Control Powder
6) Eco Tools – Bamboo Blush Brush
7) BH Cosmetics 32 Color Lip Palette

That WAS hard! LOL!

LOL. I just did a checklist for my Europe trip in June, although my makeup section has way more than seven items! But if I really had to choose:

1. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation B30
2. Bobbi Brown Corrector “Peach”
3. Maybelline Fulln’Soft Mascara (waterproof)
4. Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #13 (champagne)
5. NARS Blush “Desire”
6. MAC Lipstick “Girl About Town”
7. Elizabeth Arden Colour Intrigue Lipstick “Poppy Cream”

On vacation, I want to less time getting ready so I can do more things in the day! I don’t want to spend time blending and applying eyeshadow and eyeliner, etc. So very simple eyes and bold lips just make it easy but still polished.

I would bring :

– A NARS lipstick, probably Trans Europe Express
– A CHANEL blush, probably Espiègle
– A BENEFIT blush, Hervana
– The Liquid Powder from M.A.C
– The BB creme from Garnier
– A nail polish, probably Rose Caché from CHANEL
– Double Wear compact from Estée Lauder, shade Outdoor Beige

But in fact I would bring every product I have !!!

Well, I don’t have to count skincare, so this gets easier. Like you, Christine, I’d take the Naked palette (which includes BOTH liner and a small UDPP), Gosh Metallic Brass liner, Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation, Plumful lipstick, a setting powder (MAC, Too Faced, MUFE – doesn’t really matter as long as I have one), Clarins Fix makeup spray and MAC Pro Longwear concealer.
