As I discussed in my previous post, I took advantage of Macy’s “Free gift with Lancôme purchase” last month and got a load of awesome samples. Today I’ll share the “Pinks” palette.
This palette has four different colors, three of which are available in Lancôme’s
color design singles line*. The four colors are (top left to bottom right) Designer*, Pink Pearls*, Lava and Exhibition*. The color design singles are each 0.042 oz, and in this palette each is 0.03 oz for a total of 0.12 oz – so these get pretty close to full size products. As with all of the Lancôme products I’ve tried before, each of these is smooth and nicely pigmented.
I find it amusing that “Pink Pearls” is actually the only matte color in the entire set – you’d think that something with the pearl name would have a sheen. Anyway, that one is the color of cotton candy. Exhibition sounds like such a gaudy name but it is actually just a nice dusty rose shadow with a light sheen. Designer is supposedly a metallic green, but it just seems like a standard shimmer to me. Finally, Lava is a dark pinkish brown that is a shimmer. This is my least favorite color in the set, but I still like it.
Designer • Pink Pearle • Lava • Exhibition
The top swatches are dry and the bottom swatches are wet. Since I am still learning to play with the colors I opted for dry when I went to create my look (and then very heavily blended).
I switched up how I do my eyes and went from darkest to lightest this time (like from the Kat Von D tutorial on Sephora’s web site) and did Lava in the outer V with Designer going a little further out in each direction over it. Then I put Exhibition over the lid and blended everything with Pink Pearls.
This color lasted all day without a hiccup.
If you like the two colors that are available you can find them at Macy’s or Nordstrom’s for $18.00 each.
What do you think? What would you change?
