Duty Free find: Dior Color Designer All-in-One Makeup Palette

Those who travel a lot and like to spend their free time in the duty free shops in airports must have seen this before: Dior Color Designer All-in-one Makeup Palette.
I must have seen practically each and every travel palettes available in Eurpoean airports yet I check the duty frees every time I have some spare time before the next boarding, hoping to find something new and special that calls out to me.

Excuse the lowly photos and say hello to fingerprints-magnet case.

Let's see what is included:

- concealer (Light Beige)
- Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Powder Makeup (032 Sable Rosé - SPF10 PA++)
- Diorblush (830 Rose Dragée)
- eyeshadows (colors: 501, 689, 836, 959)
- Diorshow Extase mascara (black)
- mini eyeliner pencil (black)
- mini eyebrow pencil (453 Sand)
- Dior Addict Lip Maximizer (high volume lip plumper in color 010 Pink)
-  Dior Addict Ultra Gloss (270 and 680)
- mini sponge
- mini brush
- double ended sponge applicator for eyeshadow
- double ended brush applicator for gloss

Check  the sawtches of concealer, powder, blush, eyeliner, eyebrow pencil and eyeshadows in different lightings:

The concealer works well covering minor dark circles or pimples, has a light reflecting effect. But don't expect heavy coverage. It's included as a life-saver.

The powder foundation is lovely. Velvety texture, light to medium coverage. The color is chosen so it wouldn't be off on either warm or cool toned fair girls. (Those with strongly warm and olive undertones should have a light hand when applying to see how much you can wear without looking silly)

The blush is a really sweet color and the eyeshadows are great too if you like shimmery eyeshadows.
Out of the 5 shadows the only one I don't use is the middle one. It's too warm for my liking.

The glosses.
They are such a let down! The lip-plumper would be 5/5 if it had any color. To name it 'pink' is a serious crime! It's a clear gloss! Which actually gives a nice "burning" sensation like all lipplumpers do. I'm not sure if it makes my lips look's not like they become sausages from a thin line when I use this Lip Maximizer....

All 3 colors are swatched twice

The other glosses....the middle one has almost no color and the lower one is the only one with actual color which would be great had it looked complimenting on me. But it looks horrid :( 

The Diorshow Extase will be reviewed later.

This travel palette sells for around 60 EUR. I got mine for 59. Price depends on which airport you happen to buy it.
I think it's a good price for a bunch of makeup essential for an everyday look. Especially, if you want to try Dior makeup but your purse cries to pay a fortune for the full size items.
Not to mention it's compact, everything packed together for travelling.
