What's in My 'Weekend/One Night Away' Make-up Bag?

Snappy title there.

But I am going away for the night tomorrow, to go view the Eurovision Song Contest on a little tv in a Preston hotel room and then get very, very drunk, and thought I'd show you the excessive amounts of makeup I am taking with me.

This is my make-up bag, it's from Benefit and is nice and see through. I like to see my products.

Here's a little overview of the contents. It's like a tardis or something!

Face stuff: Benefit Powder Time Lover, Elf Blushing Rose (I think!), Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, Rodial Glamtox Eye Light Pen, MAC Studio Fix Concealer, Elf HD Powder, 17 Primer, Garnier Roll-on Concealer, Benefit IT Stick, Revlon Colorstay. 

Yes, I need 5 concealers. lol.

Eye Stuff: Sleek Sparkle Palette, MUA Eye Shadow - Shade 13, Benefit Eye Shadow - Bossy, MAC Palette, Urban Decay Primer Potion, MAC Vanilla Pigment, L'Oreal Super Liner, MAC Haute and Naughty Lash, GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner - Black Ink

And there we have it, far too much stuff for one night but I couldn't decide whether I wanted lipstick or eye shadow to be the focus so had to bring a selection of both :)
