Ever since I dropped my brand new dior foundation a few years ago and it smashed beyond recognition I am always wary of travelling with glass. If you follow me on twitter you will know I am the clumsiest person on this earth.
I picked up a tester of YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat before I bought it, I always do this nowadays as have given away so many foundations that looked fine in the shop and then have realised the colour resembles an oompah loompah or similar when I get home. I dread to think of the money wasted over the years.
I loved the sample and so bought the full size product, and as much as I love a pump dispenser for foundation, I invariably end up pumping too much (oooer) and have some left on the back of my hand. Due to my hate for waste I now always keep the tester and simply scrape the excess into the tester bottle. Hey presto, little wastage! Even better; a teeny foundation pot that gives me around 5 days of war paint.
Do you have any tips for travelling with foundation to keep your make up bag a little lighter?
