This is a great travel duo. The paper box it comes in isn't really ideal to keep around for travel though (as it will become soggy when wet) so if you are going to take them with you you'll have to buy a small container of some sort. I like how this set includes a moisturizing bar and a gentle exfoliation bar. When it comes to my face I usually stay away from bar soaps due to the residue they can leave behind but these ones don't leave that drying coated feeling like most others. The bars last quite a long time. I got almost 2 whole months of daily use out of this set. The ash in the exfoliation bar is so fine and gentle that you would think it wouldn't do much, but you'll see a nice difference after frequent use. Personally I like the fact that I can use it and not have my face look irritated and red afterwards (like most scrubs will leave it). The moisture bar is okay, very gentle and unscented just like the exfoliation one but it does dry out my skin little by little if I don't follow up with a good moisturizer. This was the first item I purchased from Drunk Elephant as I wanted to try what all the buzz is about and I have sensitive combination skin. Personally I will only be repurchasing the exfoliation bar as I feel the "moisture bar" isn't really that moisturizing, but this set is a great way to try out their products.
I love how lightweight Urban Decay's Naked Skin formula is. This concealer provides really good coverage without looking overly done, thick, cakey or unnatural. There is no oxidation which is something that I consider a must when I commit to anything face related. I personally have some small fine lines under my eyes and this concealer doesn't make them more pronounced or settle into them. Their formula doesn't budge, and I mean it stays where I put it the whole day (about 12 hours) and looks great without setting spray. If you need serious power use the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and your whole face will stay put. The formula lasts through sweat and warm conditions like a dream. The scent of the concealer itself was a bit off putting for me but it goes away once it dries, and it didn't irritate my skin or eyes (I personally have sensitive skin). The smell was the only reason I took a star off. I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

THIS IS THE ONE AND ONLY CONCEALER THAT DOES WHAT A CONCEALER IS SUPPOSED TO DO. IT DOESN'T CREASE, IT'S FULL COVERAGE, LIGHTWEIGHT, MADE WITH GOOD FOR MY SKIN INGREDIENTS AND MATCHES MY SKINTONE FLAWLESSLY. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE I CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT IT AND IT GOES EVERYWHERE WITH ME ALWAYS. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE BEST CONCEALER ON THE MARKET THIS IS THE ONE!
I purchased this highlighter because aquamarine is my birthstone (and I am obsessed with colourpop) and I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of glow it gives. It provides you with a lit from within pearly mermaid glow that is blue and lavender at the same time. Very unique, but I had to take off one star because it is a little on the runny side but that isn't a deal breaker for me.
Hands down Tarte makes the best mascaras I have ever tried. I was skeptical when I purchased my first tube of this but holy monkey I am hooked! It makes your lashes to long, dark and full without any clumps or flaking. Yes it is on the pricey side... but I have to say that this one is worth the price tag. I buy mine directly from the tarte website because I enjoy their loyalty program.
This is the holy grail of all eyeshadow primers. Over the years I have tried so many different eyeshadow primers out but I always find myself coming back to this one since it has such great performance. If you haven't tried this out before I highly recommend giving it a try! You won't be sorry. I always buy mine either at Sephora or directly from the UD website because they offer some great perks.
This is a great essential lip liner set that I find myself using quite often. All the liners that come in this set are nicely pigmented and long lasting. Kat Von D's cosmetics are a bit on the pricey side but I really am fond of her liners and I recommend giving them a try if you are lip fanatic like me.
1800 has been my go to tequila for years now. I really think that they have very consistent quality and I just really like the taste of this tequila be it the original or silver. Price point on this tequila isn't the cheapest but it isn't the highest either and I always recommend it (easy to pick up at any local supermarket or liquor store).
Sauza actually surprised me and turned out to be a great tequila for making margaritas or taking shots with. I was a little put off by the cheaper price tag but it was a hit at my party and I would definitely repurchase it because it had nice flavor and went down smooth. I purchased mine at the local Albertson's.
