Packing for Taiwan

Hey all! Apologies for the radio silence, but if you’ve been following me on Instagram (@presidents, if you are so inclined), you’d know that I was in Taiwan. And between that, shuffling around the Art Fair last week, and getting work stuff done, I’ve neglected this space a little bit. Sorry about that.

Anyway, as is customary, here’s what I brought along on this trip to Taipei. We flew on the 10th and got back on the 16th. I feel like it looks like a lot for that length of time, and honestly, I could have left a few things home. I still didn’t go crazy packing eyeshadows and palettes, so I’m a little bit proud of that.



Face/Blush Stuff: Kosé Suncut Water in UV Protect Essence SPF 50+, Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint in Medium, Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Correcter in Medium, Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Pressed Powder in Shade 2, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed

Eye Stuff: K-Palette 24H Real Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow in G101*, NARS Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eye Base, LUSH Cream Shadow in Sophisticated, K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner 24H in R01*, 3CE Under Eye Flash in Pitter Patter, 3CE Creamy Water Proof Eye Liner in #10 Mojito and #9 Wow Pink

Lip Stuff: ILIA Lipstick in Funnel of Love, MAKE Matte Lipstick in Jakarta, 3CE Matte Lipstick in Sweet Impact, ColourPop Matte Lipstick in Feminist, NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Mascate

Here’s a closer look at the palette I brought a SUQQU quad called Sumiredama:

This is a fun palette with enough neutral tones to wear without much thought. 🙂 I love finding palettes I’ve long buried into the ether because of over-buying. It feels nice! I used my blush, a neutral matte, along my crease, too.

I ended up a) not using Mascate or Feminist because it felt iffy drawing attention to myself with makeup because everyone I saw seemed to only bother with lashes?? and a bit of blush!, and b) unwittingly bringing 4 lip treatments and mostly using just 2, the BITE Agave Lip Mask and the Aesop Rosehip Lip Cream. The only brushes I brought were a Hakuhodo tapered eye brush, and a Hakuhodo H601.

I know it sounds like a lot, but everything fit quite nicely in this NARS bag I got as a GWP:

If you haven’t joined my MAKE giveaway, you still have about a week and a half to do so!

  1. I think you packed really well! You have some variety but it’s all pretty wearable 🙂 I love the look of the lip products you took. I totally get what you mean though about wearing bold makeup when noone else around you is! I never want to draw unwanted attention to myself haha 😛

    • Yay, glad you think so 🙂 It’s so strange haha, but I know it shouldn’t matter! It’s just something I’d rather not deal with, I think, lol.

  2. All of the lip colors are killing me! I really want to try out Ilia and Make; they both sound like phenomenal brands.
