Although I receive tons of products to test (probably more than I have time to go through) when I spotted this Dior Travel Studio Makeup Palette at the Duty-Free shop at the airport, I threw my cash down on the table faster than you could bat an eyelash. I fell in love with it.
I’ve had this kit since the end of April but the blogging world is a busy one. But FINALLY, I can tell you all about it. It’s one of my favourite tools and since it’s limited edition, I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of Dior‘s Travel Studio kits. I don’t think I could ever tire of them.
This one is great for a few reasons. First of all, it comes with everything you need to get made up so if you’re on-the-go, this is tiny compact is all you need to pack. Travel kits sometimes lack a few essentials but this one’s got it all. The powder foundation is smooth, translucent, covering and leaves a flawless finish. The lip glosses are not only shimmering (which I love) but they are really long-lasting, which I was surprised about. I love that the kit comes with a small light brown liner to match all three of the lip glosses, which are more of lipstick, by the way. Shiny like a gloss, but non-stick and long-lasting like a lipstick.
The eyeshadows are great for blending on the eyelid and I usually pick my colour combo to match my outfit. The great part is that all the colours match so you can mix and match whichever ones you feel like. There are no rules with this kit! I personally like these blendable shades for creating a washed out look on my lower lid (where it looks like one colour just fades into another). Plus, the Travel Studio Kit comes with makeup brushes, eyeliner and, of course, that essential tube of Diorshow mascara, their best mascara ever (in my opinion!).
I actually bought this little gem at the airport in the Dominican Republic but you can find it at most Dior counters and duty-free shops around the globe. If you can’t find this exact one, don’t despair. Dior comes out with a new Travel Studio Kit every so often and they’re always amazing. I was able to snag this one for $65 US and honestly, I’m not 100% sure what the retail price in Canada would be, but I wold estimate somewhere around $85. If you can head south of the border, pick one up there because the exchange rate makes shopping in the US a steal for us! If you’re going to splurge one one product this year, this should definitely be it.
