One of my favorite parts of traveling is packing all of my makeup and toiletry minis - it's fun to change things up and use teeny tiny products! I can't live without my tangle teezer - so I'm glad I finally have a compact version. The click-on cover makes it very travel friendly - I don't have to worry about dirt or fluff getting caught in the bristles.

Here are a couple of the outfits I packed for the trip - the floral pants I posted about last week:
|Shirt: H&M (similar) / Pants: Old Navy / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff / Flats: Old Navy|
And this emerald colored dress:

Before leaving on our trip, I headed downtown for a media breakfast hosted by Shu Uemura to launch their collaboration with Yaz Bukey (she's in the picture below wearing star earrings).
Yaz Bukey is a Paris-based accessory and jewelry designer. She has collaborated with Shu Uemura to release a colorfully packaged range of makeup. There is quite a fun concept behind the collection - Yaz imagined four girls (Red = Sexy Yaz, Green = Smart Lola, Yellow = Romantic Betty, Blue = Daring Tina) all competing for the love of one man...Mr Shu Shu! There was a LOT of work behind the formulation and packaging of each product as Yaz wanted them to perfectly reflect her vision. Below are the products I received - aren't they SO pretty? I don't think I've ever worn such a true orange shade on my lips, but the Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte lipsticks are noted for their deep color pay-off - so I'm excited to try it. The POREraser Mousse (in the pink can) is a unique product - it is a lightweight mousse with an SPF of 35 that reduces the appearance of pores and minimizes shine - bonus: it can even be used as an eyeshadow primer!
Here's what I wore to the event - the lighting is strange because I had to leave the house SUPER-early to catch the train and make it downtown in time for the breakfast!
