I've been looking for the perfect travel makeup palette, one that contains neutrals, bronzer, blush, and highlighter so I don't have to bring these products individually; believe it or not, I am exploring packing light for my next trips! I think I already found the perfect palette and it's Pixi by Petra's Book of Beauty; it's got the essentials I need, plus it comes in a very lightweight packaging. Perfect!
PIXI BY PETRA BOOK OF BEAUTY IN DETAIL
This handy palette has your 'barely there' makeup look covered with 8 shades of highlighter, blush, contour powder, and eye shadows that help you cop a natural look. There's also another version called Book of Beauty Contour Creator.
Top, L-R: Highlighters
Center, L-R: Blush, contouring powder
Bottom, L-R: Shimmer eye shadow duo and matte eye shadow duo
1- beige champagne shade
2- White gold (beautiful shade!)
3- matte light peach
4- dirty beige with hint of shimmer
1- light champagne
2- bronze brown with gold shimmer
Matte eye shadows:
1- cream white
2- charcoal brown
The products yield light to heavy color coverage, feel quite soft and easy to apply, and apply well with minimal fall out. Nothing special with the shades, but they always come handy, especially when traveling. The rest of the products have pretty good quality; the eye shadows aren't as nice as the ones in the eye shadow palettes, but it's decent.

Contouring Powder + Highlighter
I really like the white gold highlighter in this palette! It gives a nice, pale gold highlight and it's the kind that shows up effortlessly on warm skin; most highlighters don't show up on me or they look 'blah' on me and finally, here's one from Pixi that pops from warm skin naturally! The contouring powder, on the other hand, does it job decently.
Shimmer eye shadows
The products will hold up pretty well if used with primers.
I'm pretty happy with this palette because it's got just what I need to primp myself up when traveling.
