1. Fair to slightly medium skin tones
2. Matte to lustrous finish
3. Travel purposes
5/5 – Great 3-in-1 packaging with a luxury feel to it. Love the embossed writing on top of the cover. Also great for travelling with bronzer, highlighter and blush in one sleek palette. It has helped clear the clutter from my cosmetic pouch and all three are great quality. Shimmer is my favorite amongst these!
4.8/5 – Smooth and buttery kind of texture which melts into the skin but when I rub my brush in it a lot of powder flies here and there because all three are kind of powdery and the powder of one transfers into another but nothing so messy. My palette is still clean. Have a look at the end of the review.
3. Lasting Power:
5/5 – Ahhhh!!! It lasts whole day. Can you imagine? A travel palette that lasts whole day without touch ups! Ideally I shouldn’t even be taking it along and it should rest at home because when I use this I don’t have to touch up again for whole day at work. Great lasting power!
4. Shade Color:
4.8/5 – Great shade for fair to slightly medium skin tones. The bronzer nicely warms up the cheek bones and gives that perfect sun-kissed look. You can skip the blush and dust a bit of shimmer on top of the bronzer and it would still work amazing. The blush is a nice pink shade which adds that Barbie doll touch to your face. The shimmer also adds kind of pearly glow to your face that lasts whole day!
5. Overall Rating:
4.9/5 – There is nothing bad about this palette except for the powdery part which is not as bad as some of the other powders usually are. The powdery texture does not come in between the finish on the face or does not affect the look by any means. The shade might not be too great for medium to dark skin tones.
Do I recommend it?
Yes, by all means but strictly not to lovelies with medium to dark skin tones.
