Travel friendly palettes – yes please! Thought i’d share a review of my most beloved travel palette (i use this when i am not travelling as well!) Rich in pigment, easy to blend and affordable!
Stylish lightweight packaging. Comes with a sleeve around the palette. I always keep this one to make sure the palette stays shut. It’s about the same size as a credit card. Perfect size for travelling!
It has 6 shades in a mix of matte and shimmer. I find the colour combination (Bitter start looks white in the photos, it’s more of a cream colour!) very easy to go from day to night and works well on different skin tones. It’s very affordable, but at the same time, keep in mind that this is a mini palette (0.9gr in each pan compared to 1.55gr) so there’s less product. Retails from around 14€ which i think is a fair price.
All the colours swatch well and applies smoothly on the eyelids and lasts an entire night out with a primer underneath. I haven’t tried it without primer or during an 8 hour workday. The only colour that didn’t swatch that well was “Substitute for Love”. It was just a tiny bit patchy but nothing major at all and still applied and blended beautifully on the eyes.
My favourite shade must be “Warm notes”! Such a nice berry toned colour! I also like the “Pure canache” which could double as a highlighter for the right skin tone!
I’d recommend this palette if you’re travelling a lot, don’t use makeup that often and don’t want to buy a full size or if you love trying new brands and products without spending a lot of money!
Which shade if your favourite?
