HCND's 2018 Spring Break Survival Kits

We LOVE Spring Break but HATE trying to figure out what to pack.  Luckily, HerCampus sent us AMAZING Spring Break Survival Kits. Read below to get our take on the incredible array of products that were sent to us!

Buxom Cosmetics Va-Va Plump Shiny Liquid Lipstick

This lipstick is the perfect formula for anyone who is looking for a full, voluptuous lipstick with rich color and full coverage.  This color’s opacity is amazing, and it truly does make your lips appear larger without the unpleasant feeling of wearing a lip plumping serum.  It lightly tingles, but leaves the lips feeling fresh and will not leave lipstick marks on your drinks. The color we received was Wine Me and was a very bright berry color, a staple for every makeup bag.  

 

Krazy Glue All Purpose Singles

These little super glue singles always come in clutch. You know how sometimes your roommate borrows and then drops your favorite mug, leaving it in pieces on the cold, hard linoleum floor? Well fret no more, because there’s a little baby tube of Krazy Glue that’ll fix it right up. I hate when I’m trying to fix something (or adhere fake nails) and the tube of glue is either clogged or oozing glue everywhere, so these little singles make the job much easier. Also, who doesn’t love mini-sized things?? No one, that’s who.

 

L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes

For those of us who stayed on campus or went home to good old Minnesota during Spring and Easter breaks, a tan was not in the picture. Enter L’Oreal’s tanning wipes, which make self-tanning a hell of a lot easier than using those weird mitt things and a bottle of gloopy brown lotion. Just whip one out, rub it all over, and bam, now I’m tan(ish).

 

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Green Tea Sunscreen SPF 45

This Green Tea Sunscreen was amazing.  It did not feel incredibly heavy or super oily on the skin, and did not dry out my skin.  In fact, it felt hydrating. This is the perfect for any Spring Break trip, for Darty season, and upcoming summer in that the bottles are small enough to fit into a small purse, so you can ensure that you stay protected from the sun without having to worry about carrying around a huge, clunky and uncomfortable bottle.    

Almay Shadow Squad™ Eyeshadow

These are perfect for weekend trips, vacations, or even to throw in your backpack in case you need an emergency makeup “pick me up”.  These small palettes come with four finishes: matte, glitter, satin, and metallic. This is great to help build up your look, and add dimension without the clunkiness of carrying a large palette in your pocket.  It is small enough to fit in your back pocket, too!

Bed Head by TIGI Hair Products

The Superstar Queen for a Day Thickening Spray

Do you ever go to straighten your hair, and you know it’s going to be a “flat” day?  This is a great fix for when you’re planning a night out on the town and need that extra volume to headbang and hair whip yourself through the night.  It’s also super easy to use! Just spray it in your roots after a shower, comb through your hair, and blow dry/style as you would normally. It also smells AMAZING and does not leave your hair feeling greasy, stiff, or crunchy.  

Get Twisted Anti-Frizz Finishing Spray

This product is also incredibly easy to use!  It comes in an adorable spray bottle with a bright neon green/yellow color.  It smells amazing and really makes the difference for those of us who need as much help as possible making sure those curls are defined and poppin’.  Just spray on your hair while it’s still wet and come through your hair. This is an incredibly simple step in your hair routine to get incredibly sexy hair.
