The New Dominique Cosmetics Transition Palette will be your most practical makeup palette in your collection. Therefore, you will find yourself reaching for this multi-use palette again and again. First, the palette has fifteen neutral shades, ranging from warm to cool. All of the shades have matte finishes. Best of all, the shades replace your eyeshadow,blush, highlighter, contour, and bronzer palettes. Instead, this is an all in one Palette. Therefore, the shades can perform a multitude of tasks. In other words, the palette has shades that will highlight your cheeks, blush your cheeks, and contour your cheeks.
Even more, the Transition shades will enhance your eyebrows, and play up your eyes. In fact, you can even line your eyes with these shades. Finally, you can use this palette with any of your other palettes. For one thing, you can use Transition to darken shades from another palette. Another way is, use Transition to contour your face and eyes. Then apply different colors and textures from another palette. Finally, the Transition Palette will become your workhorse palette.

The Transition Palette Packaging
To begin with, the outer box has a mauve marbled look. Then, the writing is in Rose Gold. Next, the compact itself is hard cardboard. Therefore, all you need to do is lift up the lid to open the palette. In other words, there is no hardware on the compact. So, it is easy to use. Next, inside, on one side is a nice, large, full mirror. Then, on the other side are the eyeshadows. Moreover, Dominique made the pan size large enough so you could put a facial brush in them. Remember, this palette isn’t just for your eyes only!
Also, the shadows are arranged in three horizontal rows of five shadows.
The Formula For The Dominique Cosmetics Transition Palette
First, the formula is a smooth matte powder. Next,the shades are rich in pigments. Also, the formula is soft, and it feels creamy to the touch. Therefore, the formula is easy to blend. Even more, you can layer the shades for more rich color. Finally, there was little, to no kick-back, nor was there any shadow fallout. I found the shades were very long-wearing, about six to eight hours, with little fading.

My Final Thoughts On the Dominique Cosmetics Transition Palette…..
To begin with, this is only my second eyeshadow palette from Dominique Cosmetics. My first palette, Berries and Cream, is a beautiful eyeshadow palette. Also, I love the Dominique Cosmetics Highlighters. Last summer I tried her Prisma Glow Highlighter Palette and her New Dominique Skin Glosses. All her products are made with quality ingredients. I love the Skin Glosses, and wear them all the time. Now, the Transition Palette is my new go-to palette. It is so versatile, you can do your whole face, and just add foundation, mascara and lipstick. It is also the perfect palette to take with you on vacation. I think this is a must – have for any makeup collection. I have a feeling you are going to think so too!
