what's in my travel makeup/toiletries bag?

I normally pack light when I go on holiday, which means I restrict myself to only taking hand luggage. The problem with this is that you're only allowed to take one small, clear bag full of liquids, which is why the post is separated into liquids and non-liquids.
I'm going to do this in list form because we would be here all day if I was describing every single product!
Vaseline Rosy Lips
Quickies Nail Varnish Remover Pads
Eyelash Curler - a cheap Superdug one.
Nail File
Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop - Don't worry, I won't leave it out in the sun!
Urban Decay Preen Palette
Maybelline Pure Mineral Foundation Loose Powder
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub
NYX Cream Blush in Glow - The only blush I'm taking, it gives such a natural flush.
L'Oreal Contour Khol in Blue Denim - Not the best eyeliner, but it's my only blue one!
No7 Metallic Eyes Pencil in Purple

Not Pictured:
Kirby Grips
Nivea Roll-on Deoderant
Green People Sun Cream SPF15
Mini Toothpaste - if you're going on holiday I'd recommend you check on toothpaste websites, they might be giving away free mini samples that are perfect if you're going abroad.
Lush Tea Tree Water Toner
Dr Nick Lowe Oil Control Day Cream - this was a luxury sample from Latest in Beauty, it's a great size for travelling.
Skin79 BB Cream - I got this mini size from eBay, and I wasn't planning on bringing it with me but after trying it for the first time yesterday, I couldn't not bring it with me. I'll probably use this instead of a moisturiser in the day, and use the day cream at night because my skin is on the oily side.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light - I'll only use this if I get any blemishes. For everything else, like under my eyes, I'll use my MAC one.
MAC Mineralize Concealer in NW15
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Coral Reef
China Glaze Papaya Punch
Collection 2000 2 in1 Base Coat & Ridge Filler
17 Falsifeye Mascara
Collection 2000 Waterproof Skyscraper Mascara
And this is other stuff that isn't going in a bag because it's too big:
Sigma Make Me Cool Brush Set - I'm not taking all the brushes in the set, but the case is really good for keeping brushes safe and clean.
Cotton Face Pads
Simple Face Wipes - Not as good as a proper cleanser, but I'm not going to be wearing that much makeup anyway!

Hope that didn't bore you, but I'm sure it'll be useful for some!
