Hi loves! I have a new video for you guys about what I took with me beauty-wise for my trip to New York. You can find the video at the end of this post and in this blogpost I’m showing you my favorite (new) items. During a long trip like this I like to have everything with me that I need and I always take some new items with me to try out as well. At home I usually stick to my routine but on a holiday I have some more time to switch it up and test new items.

A few weeks ago I had a private make-up session with Tom Ford Beauty. I was hooked on their products instantly! For this trip I took some of them with me and I fell in love with this stunning eyeshadow palette. I just love these feminine colours, that complement my brown eyes perfectly.

I also recently had a skin analysis done at Ikari, they gave me some products to try out and their day and night cream is part of my daily routine at the moment. They also recommended me this eye gel which helps to reduce darker circles. This runs in my family and definitely after a long flight I need something to combat them ;-).

New to my hair routine is this Gisou hair oil to care my hair system. Everybody knows Negin Mirsalehi for her stunning locks and so she decided to launch hair products. The Gisou oil is honey infused since her dad is a bee keeper. I must say that this is really my favorite hair oil I’ve tried so far. I love that the texture is really thick and not fluid. It also doesn’t leave my hair greasy looking at all, it just looks a lot healthier in an instant.

Of course I also want to get rid of hairs on places I don’t want them ;-). The Venus Snap is my go-to product that I grab with me whenever I’m travelling. The gel cushions make sure the shaving is very soft and the case and small format is super practical! My skin was also very dry during this trip and shaving helped me to remove the top layer of dead cells on my skin without taking a scrub with me, double win!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and for all the pictures of my trip to New York you can just check out #curlsandbagsinnyc on instagram!
