Whats In My Make Up Bag: The Paris Edition

I'm always quite good when it comes to packing make up. I never end up using all the products I take away with me anyway so I always keep it very minimal and only include the basics. Not only does it stop extra weight being added to my case but it leaves enough room to squeeze in my new purchases. This will be the first time I've ever been to Paris or Sephora and believe me when I say I'll be hitting it with a bang! I'm planning on only buying Sephora own brand make up as I think it's fantastic and because the products which are available to us in the UK work out more expensive in Euros.So, whats starting off as a very minimal make up bag will more than likely be overflowing with Sephora goodness by the end of the trip.

Daniel Sandler Radiance Foundation & Concealer*
Pur Minerals CC Cream*
Garnier Tinted Eye Roll On
YSL Touche Eclat
Clarins Graphic Expressions Face & Blush Powder

Liz Earle Brow Pencil 'Fair'*
MAC Paint Pot 'Painterly'
Urban Decay NAKED Palette (and brush)
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara

MAC Creme Cup
Sephora Colour Reveal Lip Balm

Sephora Classic Mineral Powder Brush #45 (I use it for liquid foundation)
Real Techniques Delux Crease Brush
Zoeva Powder Brush
Zoeva Pencil Brush

It looks like more when I write it all down but from the Urban Decay NAKED palette I only use 'Virgin' in the inner corners,'Sin' on the lid and 'Naked' in the crease but if I fancy adding a bit of liner to my look I can use one of the darker shades with the Zoeva Pencil Brush. The Clarins Graphic Expression Palette is my powder, blush and bronzer all in one handy compact and my Zoeva Powder Brush does the job of applying it in all 3 ways.

Brushes will be having a bath before I go, I just didn't have time to spruce them up before taking photos for this post.

Are you sensible-ish when it comes to packing? 
Or do you like to empty the contents of your house into your case?
