Our co-founders Katia and Hayley are jaunting off to South by Southwest in Austin tomorrow. While the music festival is a blast, the duo is actually headed to Interactive, a series of events and presentations that focus on emerging technology. (Translation: FourSquare! Tumblr! FoodSpotting!) We’re always about what people take on trips, so we asked them to let us peek at the essentials they’re packing. Hopefully their jaunt won’t be all work and no play—you can’t go to SXSW and not have any fun!
What Katia’s bringing:
My Face Works i need to detox, i need to replenish, and i need damage control sheet masks: These are a must to help me refresh after flights and get ready for go go go time.
Oscar Blandi Olio di Jasmin Hair Serum: Perfect for adding some polish to my air-dried ‘do.
Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint: A fast way to get flawless skin in just one simple step.
Korres Lip Butter in Wild Rose: I love all things butter, so just add a tint and I’m really happy! This is my new never-leave-home-without-it product.
Pomega5 Daily Revitalizing Concentrate: Thirsty skin + travel-friendly ampules = A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
What Hayley’s Bringing:
Apothia If Roll-on Perfume Oil: The rollerball makes it so easy to travel with!
Deborah Lippman Stripper To Go: I’ll definitely be packing these handy to-go packets of nail polish remover in case my army green mani doesn’t make it through the weekend.
Lipstick Queen Pop Art Lip Gloss #13: I discovered this brand back in May 2010 during our Birchbox beta test and it’s still one of my faves. It’s half-gloss half-lipstick, which allows for quick application.
Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencil in Bangalore: My new low maintenance short-on-time alternative to eye shadow.
Birchbox temporary tattoos!: Planning on branding some techie guys at the bars. To snag your own Birchbox tat, use the code TATS on any full-size order within our Shop.
Cosmetic case: My mom gave me this one — it’s from Thailand.
