“My eye looks huge!” I say, with my face practically pressed against the bathroom mirror. I get up close like that when I’m putting on false eyelashes — fare for nighttime fun. When it comes to nighttime makeup looks, if yours frequently feature fake eyelashes with rhinestones glued to the tips and glittery purple eyeshadow, everything else looks like library makeup by comparison, LOL!
I’m not exactly sure why Clinique named their new travel exclusive palette Day To Night because it looks more like a day-to-day palette to me.
Then again, I still think the kit, which arrives at select domestic and international airports and duty free stores in May, contains some interesting, useful colors, especially if you like your makeup on the subtler side (I usually do), or if you’re trying to build up the number of neutrals in your stash.
The kit’s three sheer eyeshadows (a matte beige, a shimmery shell and a shimmery reddish brown), lone blush (a matte plum), two lipglosses (a shimmery reddish plum and a shimmery purple) and single lipstick (a creamy reddish plum) should make for plenty o’ natural, everyday looks.
It’s almost the exact same size as an iPhone
Pricing will vary based on travel hub/location, but expect it to hover around the $40 mark.
I’m sold on the lip products in the kit, but I detect a bit of fallout using the darkest eyeshadow. I also think the blush could stand to be a little easier to blend.
That said, if you’re a die-hard Clinique fan hitting the skyways or highways this spring, the kit might be worth a quick trip to a duty free store.
PRICE: Varies by location; should be around the $40 mark
AVAILABILITY: Coming this May to domestic and international airports and duty free stores
