A package of goodies recently arrived from Sephora and one of the products I was most excited about was the Lancome Colour Design Palette in Kissed by Gold.

This is a new range of palettes featuring 5 colours (the original ones had 4), including: base, lid, crease, highlight and liner colour. It was so difficult to choose just one to get – I kept fluctuating between about 4 different ones! Kissed by Gold seemed to be the most ‘sensible’ choice as the colours would work well for everyday and could be easily bumped up for a dramatic night look.

How gorgeous are these colours?

There is only one matte shade (the crease). The colours were all buttery soft and highly pigmented, even without a base. Lancome colours usually wear very well on me despite my oily eyelids, so on those with normal/dry skin these should be stellar.

L-R: All-over base, lid, crease, highlight, liner.

The 2nd picture is blurred to show the glitteriness of the colours (unfortunately just an overspray). Although Lancome has given a guide as to how to use the colours – I wouldn’t recommend following it (why would you put a peachy brown colour as your highlight?). The colours are definitely versatile enough to produce tons of different looks.

Unfortunately, these palettes haven’t been launched in Australia yet (whyyyyy!?) so you can’t run down to Myer to check them out, but if you do have access to them I highly recommend giving them a look. They are pricey (USD 48.00) but they are a good investment for a busy girl!


ps. A quick look I did using the Kissed by Gold palette:

Apart from the Kissed by Gold palette, I’m wearing Revlon Colourstay Liner in Black, Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed, Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill mascara, MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow and The Body Shop lipstick in Ginger Rose.
