Weekend travel make up!

Hello, hello! I just spent the past weekend up in Scotland for a wedding.. We had beautiful hot and sunny weather while we were there and also got to visit Loch Lomond, which as you can see from the above picture is absolutely beautiful! Anyway, I thought I would share the make-up that I took with you!

I was pretty tight on space so tried to condense what I took with me compared to what is normally in my make up bag and even though I kept a few things out, I still didn't end up using all the the things I took with me. I took the Seventeen Doll'd Up mascara in brown for the daytime since I like a more natural look along with the Rimmel nude eyeliner pencil and then switched them both out for the black Oraganic Wear mascara from Physicians Formula and brown eyeliner pencil from Soap and Glory for the reception. I also took with me my first Revlon lipstick that I've tried in 'Pink in the Afternoon' and so far I really like it!

What are you make up essentials when you travel?

Organix Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo

I was excited to try this shampoo after liking the conditioner and at first I liked it but after using it a few more times, I was pretty disappointed. I noticed my hair felt weird and almost powdery which lead me to think maybe I hadn't rinsed the shampoo out properly and made note to myself to make sure I rinsed well the next time I used this to wash my hair but found the same thing happened again. After the third wash with no change, I decided not to use this shampoo anymore. It felt like the product had built up and was in still in my hair making it hard to run my fingers through it or style and generally just did not feel very nice definitely not smooth or silky like the bottle claims! I couldn't wait to wash my hair again with a shampoo I know works well to get it all out. I was pretty disappointed and so glad I didn't buy the big huge version of this! One positive about this product though is the amount you get even though it's a mini size - perfect for a two week holiday or travelling if you like the Organix range.

Have you used this shampoo? Did you like it?
