A few weeks back I popped to the #JetSetBeauty event to spend some time with the lovely team from World Duty Free. I think I almost died when I found out that they had kindly gifted me the Extemely YSL - Tuxedo Travel Palette* in a goody bag. After a week or so of being too scared to use it in case I broke it, I started testing it out.
The Tuxedo Travel Palette features five eye shadows, four lip colours, one blusher, a white highlighter and a Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Shocking Black as well as 3 adorably cute mini brushes, which i'll likely never use - but they're super cute!
I must say that the blusher and highlighter in this palette are so pretty. I've been wearing them together for the past week and they work perfectly on pale skin to create a natural flushed look.
The eyeshadows are pigmented and apply easily, although when testing the matte black shade, I did notice quite a bit of fallout, so if you're looking at creating a deep smoked out eye using this palette - I'd recommend eyes first, base second.
The palette contains 4 different shades of lip products and whilst the diverse range of colours is great, the fact that they are sandwiched between the powder products without any sort of protection isn't. After using the black eyeshdaow, I did notice a fair amount of fallout had made it's way on to the lipgloss, it wiped off easy enough - but i'd much rather some sort of protective layer to keep the lip gloss safe.
The Tuxedo Travel Palette comes with a mini Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils and having not used a YSL mascara before, I can't say I was prepared for what seems like a totally unnecessary high amount of perfume. I'm not sure I ever needed a perfumed mascara, but I'll give it a shot....
Overall, I think this palette is beautiful, It's carved it's place into my daily make up and certainly worth picking up if you find yourself passing through the airport any time soon as it's a travel exclusive you won't find it in the shops!
