There’s always room for another eyeshadow palette, right? Especially for a super fancy one with shiny silver packaging covered in Parisian garden in the Spring and a magnificent range of matte and iridescent pinks and a trio of intense blue-greens. Lancome My French Palette it’s a bold one for sure (compared to my daily go-to: UD Naked Basics2), however still neutral enough to wear on a daily basis, as well as suitable for evening looks. It looks sophisticated and elegant and the packaging is just everything! You open it up, you got a decent sized mirror in there and six lovely rose-beige-pink eyeshadows. On the right side it has a »secret« compartment with a trio of a bit bolder shades. My mind was blown away in a second.
The Lancome French Innocence collection offers some other amazing new products, however the palette is a winner for sure. Two limited edition products that have also found their way into my makeup vanity are two Vernis in Love nailpolishes – 559M Gris Rivoli and 383M Vert Tuileries. To awaken my inner Parisienne I’ve been painting my nails in an elegant taupe grey, tribute to the resolutely urban Paris of Rue de Rivoli (Gris Rivoli) and a tangy contemporary version of the green colour of the Jardin des Tuileries benches (Vert Tuileries). It might sound ridiculous, but makeup can take you places with a little bit of imagination. I am dreaming of Paris with this amazing Lacome’s collection.
