I had a good snoop around the Duty Free make up section when I went away a few months ago – there was so much choice although I didn’t find the discounts groundbreaking.
So instead I looked at the special travel or ‘voyage’ palettes which all the major brands like Chanel, Dior, Clinique, Clarins, YSL etc. make for Duty Free.
I didn’t like most of them because I don’t like mixing up lip and eyeshadow colours in one palette. I make some exceptions but…lipsticks should be in tubes. That is all.
This Dior Cannage Eyeshadow Set caught my eye because it is purely eyeshadow shades and a really lovely collection of shades – you know how there’s always a few duds in a palette set, like frosty blue? All the shades in this palette seemed nice!
This palette is called the Cannage because it has the same stitching as the Cannage handbags! How nice! I love the little charm on the palette and although it’s quite big, I like it. I wouldn’t carry it around with me day to day but I would take it away at the weekends or for holiday.
The palette is study and the fabric is a vinyl. It’s ok for fingerprint marks!The stitching is really nice!
Inside the palette is a really big mirror – hence this really if a fab palette to take away with you and there are 2 large sponge tipped applicator. I prefer sponge tipped applicators in a palette like, still better than crappy brushes that don’t work at all.
There were no samples for me to test so I had to trust that Dior would make excellent eyeshadows for this palette!
I wasn’t disappointed. These eyeshadows are as lovely as any Dior eyeshadow – buttery soft, pigmented. They are all shimmery.
There’s a great selection of colours! White, gold, peach, light pink then a smoky plum, chocolate, navy and black. Basically everything you’d need!
Also each square is generously sized.
A rather nice find from the Duty Free which I know I will get use out of for a long time, rather than just a few weeks! I think I paid about £37 for this (or thereabouts) which is great value because there are 8 colours!
Have you ever bought anything beauty related from the Duty Free?
