My experience with this product

I’m not a person who do a lot of travelling but when I do travel, sorting out my travel makeup bag is a great hassle as I cannot figure out which products I would want and making sure I take every possible product I could think of so I don’t feel frustrated not having something. But in the recent years I have come to the realisation that you wouldn’t use too many when you’re travelling anyways! Concerning all the real travel needs, I would say without a doubt that this palette is definitely a palette that’s travel appropriate!
Variety in lipstick shades: although the shadows provided are all neutral shades, Clinique has provided great variety with the lipstick shades which i think is much thought through as almost 90% of women would wear neutrals and their preferences are usually biased when it comes to lipsticks. This palette has a true red, nudes, and couple more.
A great eye shadow quad: in my defence I would say that travelling isn’t the time to experiment with bold looks as you wouldn’t want to look like a hot mess unless you have mastered your signature look so having neutral shades is a smart choice for Clinique. All the shadows are pigmented and not chalky at all keeping up with the quality of its brand name. I demonstrated an eye look with these shadows which you can check out HERE.
Tools: I’m usually the person who care less about the tools provided in makeup palettes but I realise that for a person who travels with very less space and time, small tools like these help a lot! And quite frankly the tools aren’t cheap at all! The hairs are really soft and haven’t shed.

Face powder & blush: one thing which is a downside of this product is that I would highly recommend this palette as a travel palette only to girls with light or light/medium complexions as the powder and blush doesn’t work for other skin tones! I have medium complexion with warm undertones and the powder doesn’t work for me at all.
As for the blush, it looks really pretty which I can describe as a dusty mauve/ earth tone and this blush doesn’t show up on my skin at all. I tried applying it at least 5 times but it just doesn’t so if you’re expecting a palette with a good blush, powder for medium skin tones or darker I wouldn’t recommend.

This palette also comes with a sample size high impact extreme volume mascara which i will dedicate a complete review.

Packaging: I love the packaging in this product; the lid has a mirrored finish and really sturdy packaging. However I do find that the mirrored area is prone to finger prints. The palette does come with a big mirror which again is a bonus for travelling.
