NYX also has a cheap HD primer that helps the color of your eye shadow pop more too. Definite must have in the summer - wherever you are!
I like the Urban Decay primer in the purple genie type bottle. In the Texas humidity we must use primers or makeup just melts off down here.

Have you tried the tubing mascaras like Blinc? Personally I like the Asian mascaras better than the American ones though. They stay all day without smearing, but can be difficult to get off. You have to use cleansing oil. I order mine on ebay. I like the Kiss Me Heroine Make for Volume and Curl and also the Kiss Me Heroine Make for Length. I also like the Majolica Majora My Lashes Extend Elegantly.

I've got a green one that blows up. I got it several years ago from Avon. It's about 12" square and maybe 8" tall when it's blown up, but folds small enough to squeeze into a quart zip lock. I always carry it and some Jafra foot soak and Jafra Peppermint foot lotion when I go to WDW. I also like the Avon coconut foot lotion and coconut foot spray.

You mean like a little tub to put your feet in? I got this one at Sally's in the store:

http://www.sallybeauty.com/pedi-bath...l?cm_vc=SEARCH

It looks big but it's not real big - just big enough to put your feet in comfortably and comes up to about mid-calf. One tip though - don't fill it real high. It like sinks and gets heavy and is hard to carry from the sink to wherever you're soaking!

Also from a previous post - yes I was referring to Marine Summer Hair, true what you said - didn't notice much help with this when my scalp got burned.

As for a good mascara, make sure it's water proof. I like Dior and Lancome but haven't found one that absolutely doesn't smear off at least little due to heat/humidity.

I ended up going off the pill to "finish" my period and will go back on the pill on Monday. I have to go to my doctor to talk to him about getting something to help my nervousness about flying so I will talk to him about what to do about not having my period during my vacation.

Thanks for all of the info everyone and keep it coming!

Susan
I use to be able to do this, but it doesn't work anymore, to many other issues. I will be having a hysterectomy within the next few months so I will be good for our trip in August.

I don't know about you, but whenever I go to Disney, I get such a bad sunburn.

I'm allergic to most sunblocks, but I have found a few things which help take the edge off of a bad burn.

The first is Bath and Body Works Cooling Mist. I cannot recommend this enough. I. Love. It! It's a lightly scented spray with aloe vera in it. The bad news is I think they've discontinued it. The good news is that you can still get it on e-bay and amazon (just ordered one in lemon vanilla to take with me to Disney in May)

The other is Burts Bees After Sun Lotion. Where I'll use the mist throughout the day I generally use the lotion at night right before bed. It feels so cool and nice!

On our previous trips, I've taken my tube of Mary Kay lip balm. It would get super runny. I was planning on Burt's Bees for our upcoming trip but now... Has anyone found a lip balm that doesn't melt when you take it into the parks? Either in a pocket or in a bag?

I loooove Blinc! Clinique makes a similar (and much less $$$) version, I love it. I can't wear anything else, especially if water rides are involved. Blinc is actually super easy to get off if you just wet your lashes with warm water and rub your lashes between your fingers. That's how you're supposed to take it off (same with other 'tube' mascaras), no cleansing oil necessary. I think they still sell Blinc at Sephora. Again, the Clinique one is much cheaper (actually now that I think about it, I think 2 or 3 of Clinique's mascaras are 'tube' mascaras). L'Oreal makes a tube mascara too. Non-tube mascaras just smear on me (even waterproof versions), no matter where I am. Tube mascaras changed my life (well, as much as a mascara can, lol).

I just bought the Stila waterproof liquid eye liner for my upcoming trip. Hopefully that holds up!

Try a squeeze tube balm, like Aquaphor's lip balm or Jack Black.

I've never had a problem with just a tube of regular chapstick, usually in my pocket. I take a few with me just in case I lose it or it does get melty, I found them for $.19 each, so I bought a bunch of them.

For lip balm Netrogena makes a great gel. It comes in a little squeeze tube, and is mostly sheer, but you can choose from a few different tints. It also is one of the few I can find that has spf. My lips tend to get sunburned so spf in a gloss/balm is a must for me.

The BBW cooling mist has been discontinued. But, I did read on the BBW facebook page that they are coming out with a new cooling mist with SPF soon.

Well make a trip to Sally's and see if I find one. I am going to the professional beauty store with my friend,who is a hair stylist. I will specifically be looking for something for my hair and scalp to use while on my beach vacation in June. I'll post what we find.

Yes. I love those balms, but their packaging is so bulky lol. I carried one in my bag last year and it did not melt. I didn't bring it on my trip though, just around town in the summer. Even though it didn't melt, it became slimy, which I wasn't happy about. I can imagine what it would have done in the Disney heat.
