Review: Chanel Fly High Travel Makeup Palette

Recently, I won the coveted Chanel Fly High Travel Makeup Palette from
Stacey's addtocartblog  giveaway. 

I was absolutely surprised, stunned and shocked that I won! I even had to read my name twice to make sure it was really me that won this gorgeous Chanel palette! I've always had a thing for face palettes and have reviewed some of my favourite palettes that I've used to date. So, I'm really happy to welcome my new Chanel palette to my other wonderful lovelies!

Chanel Fly High Travel Makeup Palette was an airport exclusive product, which includes four soft eyeshadows, two lipsticks, two lipglosses and a blusher. This palette comes complete with a signature Chanel velvet pouch with three travel sized brushes. The shades are very girly and the gorgeous pink shades of lipstick and glosses are suitable for the day and night. As an added bonus this palette has a huge mirror! I love palettes with huge mirrors!
This Chanel Fly High Travel Makeup Palette is THE perfect travel companion!

The blush is very pretty pink shade with subtle shimmer. I prefer using my regular bamboo handle blush brush from Everyday Minerals as this brush is more dense than the mini brush in this set. This blush gives this gorgeous pink glow to my cheeks and brightens my whole look. I really love this shade!

The four eyeshadows are all sheer, soft and provide a beautiful shimmery sheen to my eyelids. I use the pearl white shade to highlight the brow bone and the other three shades to my eyelids.

The lipstick shades are sheer and gives a little shine to the lips. The pale pink gloss feels like a balm and gives a glossy shine, whereas the raspberry shade gloss gives a highly pigmented shimmery look to my lips (I absolutely LOVE this lip gloss shade!).
