I was very pleased to see that we had the Nordstrom "Exclusive" travel set here in the UK.
At £50 I think its a very good deal, you get a
Eye and Cheek palette that
includes: Second Skin Cheek Colour in Vintage Pink (dusky pink),
Eyeshadow duo in Morning Dew (matte off white) and Primrose (warm
sheer pink with tiny sparkle) and Eyeshadow duo in Topaz (satin
finish taupe) and Kir Royal (deep plum with tiny sparkle).
The shadows feel smooth and blend well.
Though I find Primrose makes me look a bit tired, the other shades
are very wearable. The blush applies smoothly and has very good
pigment and wear.
You also get a travel
size All Over Eye Colour brush, Full size Caviar Eye Stick Colour in
Twilight (medium shimmery grey)
Travel size Full Blown Volume Lash
Building Mascara in Black, mini Foundation Primer (30ml), and full size Lip Glace in Sweetheart
The brush is good for applying base shades and
it really can pack colour on.The mascara is good for lengthening and doesn't
Though the lip glace formula is a bit too sticky for my liking, I really like the subtle glossy pink look.
The eye stick can be used lightly or built up to create
quite a smoky look, it blends in well and really lasts. The primer
is the only thing I'll not use as it doesn't agree with my acne
Whilst you may well have similar colours in your collection, its really nice having them in one set; they are just very
easy to wear and overall flattering. Sets can often have a lot of
duds but I think this is very solid and I would recommend.
I bought this from John Lewis
