One Night Cosmetics Complete Palette

One Night Cosmetics recently sent me their compact-sized complete make up palette to try out, and I have a review of it today. This little palette is the size of a credit card and considering how small it is, it still manages to contain just about everything you'd need for a complete look. I find that it's a perfect alternative to a much larger make up pouch in my bag, and it would also be ideal for travel because you can carry this in your bag while checking your large train case or suitcase--which yes, I travel with a lot of cosmetics products because I never know what I might need!

Below: The palette, which retails for $24.95, comes boxed and includes both a fabric (shown below) carrying pouch and a leather-look pouch which is a little thicker. These both fit perfectly into my smaller purses/clutches without taking up very much space.

Below: The back of the box gives a very complete ingredient list. This product is made in the U.S.A.

Below: This is the leather-look pouch and both pouches have a snap closure.

Below: The complete kit, which includes the palette, brushes, mascara and lash tint, all fit comfortably inside.

Below: I received the Medium kit, and they are also available in Fair, Neutral, Medium Tan, and Tan. You can view the shades contained in each color complexion set on their web site.

Below: I love this gloss!
This is a great little kit for portability, and the quality of the products is excellent. The lip gloss and lip color are both subtle shades, which is what I generally wear, and they're pigmented and non-drying. The only thing missing from this kit is a blush, but I've been using the lip stick shade as a cream blush with no problems. My go-to eye shadow color is always a taupe shimmer, so you've got to know that this is a perfect shadow for my preferences. The pigment level on the shadow is extremely high, and a little product goes a long way.

I find myself reaching for this palette not only for a touch up, but also first thing in the morning when I apply my make up. I do prefer to use my full-sized brushes for the full face application, but the mini brushes will work for a touch up. The mascara mini tube is small, but it gets the job done. I wish this was available in a full-sized product, because the formula applies so nicely with zero clumping and perfect separation. The shine control powder works very well also, and at first I thought that the palette needed a powder with color. After using this over my existing powder foundation, I'm glad this is included! It does a great job of cutting down the shine later in the day, and freshening up my look.

If you've been looking for a complete palette that "does it all" and fits effortlessly into your bag, this is a great one to check out.
