Top 10 Travel Size Beauty Products.

I've been traveling quite a lot lately, and being summer, I'm betting that a lot of you have been taking some vacation time as well. I hope you are anyway. I've gotten pretty good at packing because my husband does not like it when I check a bag. So it's 3 fl oz and under for me when I travel when it comes to my beauty lotions and potions. So, I might have to sneak some of my things into his little perfectly sized travel bag, yeah, yeah because I do bring a lot. But I have definitely found some perfectly sized travel beauty products that I wanted to share just in case you needed a little help.

In case you are unsure of the airline rules, here they are according to the tsa.gov website:

3-1-1 for carry-ons. Liquids, gels, aerosols, creams and pastes must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less per container; must be in 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. The bag limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring.

One great place to start is the little maze you head down before checking out in store at Sephora. This little section is filled with great cubes of travel sized beauty products in the perfect sizes for traveling. I find these to be much more generous than the sizes you get in the trial size aisle of the mass or drugstores. These are usually full 3 oz sized products (what the TSA allows in your 1-quart sized bag, see above).

I also sometimes order things from 3floz.com. This shop exclusively carries travel sized products and they have a lot of different brands.

Best travel size beauty products to fit into your 3-1-1 tsa friendly bag!

Currently Obsessed: Colourpop.

Have you heard of the newish cosmetics brand Colourpop? It seems to have exploded amongst my makeup friends and younger demographic over the last few months and I had to see what all the excitement was about.

"Did you see the new Colourpop lippies?" "Did you get on the site?" "Were you able to order the new Colourpop collection?"

These are the discussions I kept reading in my makeup groups so I figured these women were onto something. You see, Colourpop prides itself on smart, highly pigmented cosmetics in the $5-$8 range in a huge range of shades. You can see why it has quickly caught on with one glance at the Colourpop website.

Buxom Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette.

I loving being able to customize my makeup, especially when it comes to eyeshadow. When I heard that Buxom was going to offer up 40 new shades of eyeshadow and make them easy to pop in and out of these new Eyeshadow Bar Palettes, I was tickled to say the least. Everything about this is new -- from the innovative primer, infused formula to the large pans of shadows in never before seen shades, this is something makeup girls needs to pay attention to stat.
