This palette from Estée Lauder really is rather great. I wouldn’t go so far as to say ingenious, because it’s a palette at the end of the day – a palette with little removable compacts. Handy, but it wouldn’t blow their socks off on Dragons’ Den. The great thing about it – better than the removable compacts, in my opinion – is that the shades are really wearable. The goldy, bronzey shadow shades are right up my street, and though the lip palette would have benefitted from a nude or two, it’s a comprehensive selection. There’s also a blush in a suits-all pink and a pressed powder as well as a mini mascara. I usually prefer mini-mascaras to their full-size friends – I find them easier to control – and this is no exception.
Unfortunately (for those who rarely fly) this is a Travel Retail edition, which means that you can only pick it up at the airport. But of you see it, then it’s definitely worth a look. It’s a little on the expensive side for one of these all-in-ones, priced at £44, but look out for special offers when you’re next jetting off somewhere nice! It would make a splendid emergency holiday palette – shimmery gold eyes with bright coral lips?
