Last week I received an empty palette from a Nigerian makeup brand and I am really excited about it enough to do a review on it as my first guest appearance on the Frends beauty blog.
The concept of compressing one’s kit is relatively new in Nigeria and for those of us to whom this term isn’t strange, I dare say it is an uphill task getting the right materials to make this a reality. I am however proud to say that some of the Nigerian makeup brands are taking it upon themselves to ensure that this status quo doesn’t become the norm.
This Sacred Beauty 24 well palette is perfect for any crème product ie. Foundations, lipsticks, concealers, even depotted NYX jumbo pencils.
I had initially been skeptical about the handiness of this palette due to the fact that the cover is quite big and thus will be in the way when the palette is open. However, this changed when the clasp of the cover broke on my back after receiving the palette as I stumbled on a very handy method of using this palette.
The clasp breaking off transformed it into a portable well palette which is easy to carry about and hold while working (just be sure not to let it drop) and the cover which can be used as a flat palette for mixing colours.

I am looking forward to more kit compression accessories as I and a whole lot of other Nigerian makeup artistes are eager to to compress our kits and thereby making them more portable.
