First Impressions

The Balm Voyage Volume II is a chic palette that would spark intense wanderlust in the homiest of homebodies. The super-cute packaging has vintage travel postcards featured on the front and really drives home the point of the palette; go on a trip, and you better be taking this bad boy with you.

The actual palette feels high quality (nothing worse than cheap, flimsy packaging) and is brilliantly designed. For housing such a surprisingly large amount of makeup it’s able to keep its sleek design. I know this isn’t particularly thrilling, but if you’re constantly on the go, this is huge.

Enough about the packaging though, what makes this palette a stand out is what’s inside it. Inside are nine exclusive eyeshadows (triple milled and richly pigmented), a bronzer, a champagne highlighter, two blushes, and two lip-and-cheek creams.

The standouts:

Croeso (bronzer): Love it! As a bronzer freak bronzers rarely impress me, but I’m feeling this one. It’s a dark, true brown; best for the tan obsessed and great for contouring. I used it as a subtle eyeshadow all week and it worked perfectly.

Bienvenido, Welkom, and Failte (eyeshadows): All beautiful, deeply pigmented shades that double seamlessly as eyeliners. Bienvenido is a deep bronze with a touch of green, Welkom a moody dark teal, and Failte a black/plumb shimmer.

Huan Ying and Dobrodosli (blushes): A light coral and rosy pink that both play well over the bronzer.

Honestly, there isn’t a throwaway shade in the entire palette. Balm Voyage is a slam dunk that will definitely be coming on my next trip!
