Just like a souvenir or special find from your travels, these makeup palettes are designed to remind you of your favorite places — and they’re sure to make any wanderlust-filled heart swell.

Nomad Cosmetics, a beauty brand that’s developed around the globe, creates eyeshadows, bronzers, highlighters, and a series of makeup palettes inspired by dreamy destinations. Both the colors and ingredients tie back to the city or region — including the company’s new Tokyo Harajuku palette, which just launched on Amazon.

The husband and wife team behind the brand, Felicia and Antti Rintanen, combined their love of beauty and travel when they launched the line a year and a half ago. The two met while working for cosmetic brands abroad, and now they continue to travel and develop each palette on location.

Each product features colors inspired by the landscape, architecture, and culture as well as local ingredients like Antilles’ coconut oil and Marrakesh’s argan oil. Everything is vegan and cruelty-free, and since it’s all formulated without parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, and talc, you can feel good about putting it on daily. Another bonus: Each pressed powder is designed to be used all over (eyes, cheeks, and even lips), which will help you save some precious space in your suitcase.

The brand’s new Tokyo Harajuku palette joins the current lineup of single eyeshadows, four-color blush, bronzer, and illuminator palettes, best-selling single highlighters, and other gorgeous eyeshadow palettes. The new stunner features 15 diverse eyeshadows formulated with local Camellia Japonica oil to make the texture extra silky. The palette also comes with five “chrome toppers” that change color depending on the light, which is a first for the brand.

If bold and bright colors aren’t really your thing, the brand’s chic Berlin palette may better suit your style, while those who want to play up their sun-kissed skin will love the warm and fun colors featured in the Antilles set. Just like a bottle of wine from Italy or a pretty fan from Japan, these versatile palettes will let you take a little piece of the local culture with you and help you savor the memories of your travels long after you return.
