Clarins Travel Wallet Collection

with one comment

Clarins Travel Wallet CollectionThis is another “oldie” – an old acquisition that might not even be on sale at most locations anymore, but as it is a travel-exclusive product I thought I’d add it to my database as it might help someone. I like the idea of people using this blog as shopping reference!

Clarins Travel Wallet Collection is quite a literal name for what you get: rather than just a makeup product, this is an actual wallet that comes with cosmetics inside, as you’ll see by the (many) pictures. Rather than trying to describe it, I’ll let the photos do the talking so you can see what’s it all about. I’ll just do a round-up of what the set contains: a mini Wonder Length Mascara in Black; one mini Gloss Appeal in a sparkly, creamy-nude shade; four eyeshadows (unfortunately the shades names or numbers aren’t specified, but they are an old gold, a pale lilac, a gorgeous taupe and a light pink with golden sparkles); a Powder Compact in a very, very light shade; and one corally-pink blush.

The powder products all come in a foam tray that makes them supereasy to depot, while the mascara and lip gloss have their own elastic loops to hold them. The tray has an plastic insert and cover, the bottom bit keeping it attached to the wallet while the cover prevents the powder from getting in contact with anything else.

While the quality of the wallet itself is not amazing (think gwp quality), it is a nifty idea and a practical product. I wouldn’t carry it around with the foam tray in it, though. The products inside, however, are amazing: the eyeshadows are buttery-soft and very pigmented, and the gloss is a neutral colour that can add a bit of va-va-voom to your neutral lipsticks. I didn’t swatch the mascara (I never do, really) but I like the formula – it is lengthening, although it smudges a bit on me.
