At the end of last year I went on a trip to New York, which was always a big dream of mine. I’ll tell you all about my trip in another blogpost. Ofcourse, New York also means shopping and as a make-up lover and hoarder (yes I admit, I have a problem) I could not get around the huge amount of drugstores and Sephoras  the city had to offer. All the brands and products I had been seeing all over YouTube and Instagram but which aren’t available in my country were just a footstep away. The first time I stepped foot into Sephora on 34th street, one of the biggest I had ever been to, I was a little overwhelmed. Too overwhelmed actually, so I only bought one thing after an hour in the store.

A few days later when I had processed all of it I listed the things I really wanted and went back in with a purpose. But Sephora would’nt be Sephora if they didn’t have all the travel size products and mini goodies displayed at the cash register, especially around Christmas time. That is were I snuck the Tarte Tarteist PRO To Go eyeshadow palette in my basket at the very last minute.

I had never used Tarte products before because the brand isn’t easy to get your hands on in my country. So I decided to pick up multiple things from the brand, you’ll see them in future blogposts. As a frequent traveler and citytrip enthousiast I thought a little palette like the Tarteist PRO To Go palette might’ve come in handy.

I like the packaging, although the black cardboard case gets dirty easily. Especially the fact that the palette is so small (a little bit bigger than a credit card) but still has a mirror is really good. And I love everything gold so that’s also a plus! Considering the palette is so small, I still think you get a fair amount of product.

The Tarteist PRO To Go eyeshadow palette contains six warm toned colors, both matte and shimmery.The eyeshadows are soft and creamy and they are easy to blend. There are only six shades but they’re still varied enough to make different looks. With the lighter shades you can make an easy everyday gold/brown eye and at night you can add a little smokiness by applying the dark brown color. I think I’ve found a new travel buddy for my next trip!
