Recent Acquisition! Lancome's Eye Palette in Sultry Sienna

I recently acquired a new palette that I think will be a pretty summer staple that's low maintenance and versatile.


Lancome Color Design in Sultry Sienna



The all over base color is a gorgeous matte tawny nude shade. 
The lid color is a pretty petal pink with pearly shimmers. Works beautifully as blush as well! 
The crease color is a gorgeous chestnut taupe that's soft and matte.
The highlighter shade is a pretty champagne color with fine golden shimmers
The liner color is way darker swatched than in the pan! It's a cool matte charcoal brown.




I'm going to be very happy using this palette for day and night looks. It's pretty, natural looking and simple. The shadows are pigmented but soft enough for a nice look that defines and brightens the eyes. The liner color has a lot of fallout -_- I am not a fan of but it doesn't bother me so much. My favorites has to be the gorgeous taupe and pink. I can't say anything more about the combination... they simply go together like bread and butter! 

I look forward to many many uses out of this palette! 

I have to admit, I collect eye palettes quite religiously (primarily for admiring them and collecting sake), mostly from brands like Dior, Shiseido and Lancome. I love how they're color coordinated and prettily packaged. And limited editions...a weakness! My biggest gripe is that they're pricey as hell but i always tell myself it could be worse... I mean, smoking is a pretty expensive habit right? Smoking or snorting drugs. I suppose i could do much much worse ;) 

Are you a collector of quads and quints from high end brands? ^_~

Palettes are so expensive! If it were me I'd justify it because there are many shades in one :P But your reasoning works too haha

The shades in this palette are soo pretty :D Without reading the little notes I thought that the liner shade was actually just a shadow. It seems too shimmery to be a liner... Can't wait to see some looks with this palette!

WOAHH gorgeous colors! The crease color is beautiful! : D

Mimi said...

The colors are so pretty!

Tracy said...

Good justifying reasons! I could be much worse as well. Even though I prefer single shadows, I can't resist grabbing a new eyeshadow palette.

Rinny said...

This is such a pretty palette! I love the highlighter and liner shades. I don't own any Lancome palettes, or any high end brand palettes either, for that matter. I'm pretty frugal when it comes to eyeshadows :P

Stephanie said...

The colors are so beautiful! Oh my, I think if I were to start collecting, it'll be so hard to stop = bad for my wallet!

Sunny said...

LOL I know right? At least a makeup addiction doesn't damage our health! I don't really "collect" makeup though. I prefer to own pieces I know I'll use, just because I'm practical like that :)

Maggie said...

The colors look so good together! The liner shade looks gorgeous :D

I loooove quads/palettes from high end brands, they always package them so nicely too hehe ^^

Jacqueline said...

Those re beautiful colours. What a pretty palette. Lancome eye shadows are wonderful.

Tracy@Beauty Reflections said...

Gorgeous palette! I bet it looks lovely on you! I've never tried one of these Lancome palettes. Yet haha!

Jen said...

Im a collector... Of anything - not so much high end brands coz i can't justify spending around $100+ for a palette T___T even MAC cosmetics is like... Almost $60-80 (not even the palettes,unless its like from a wholesale site). You have a valid point tho, hoarding make up is better than smoking & doing drugs coz you dont harm yourself... Ish (monetary wise, just a lil - but you can always sell your make up) :D

What a pretty palette! Like the packaging, and love the natural colors. You should do a makeup post with these colors.

This is such a pretty palette hun. I love Lancome palettes - their shades are so wearable and great quality. That all over lid shade is super pretty!

PinkOrchids said...

Gosh i love your excuses, i'll make a mental note of them so i can use it when my boyfriend complains! The palette is very pretty though, i can see why you bought it, now i really want it! But you have a very expensive addiction! xX

Jyoan said...

So soft and sweet. Looks like something I would wear too!

sleepandwater said...

I wish I was a collector of high end makeup eyeshadow palettes :p But I don't own a single one. This one is gorgeous, the colours are all so pretty! I can definitely see how the lid colour would double up as a blush. I love the taupe crease colour, such a sucker for shades like it :)

Amyboo said...

The colors look so pretty together! *_* Sadly, I don't have the budget to afford high end cosmetics often...I really have to save up and wait months and months to actually make sure if I want something or not...Ahhh the life of a student!

Blush said...

Pretty palette!
I wish I could collect high end eyeshadow palettes! Instead I'm starting to collect blushes but I must stop!
But I agree, it's better than spending it on cigarettes and drugs.

I totally have a palette weakness too! Big ones and little ones... my latest obsession is the Sigma paris palette... so yummy.

brigidbeautyblog said...

I collect eyeshadow palettes too! (And lipglosses, and blush... sigh). My latest favorite palette is the Sigma Paris palette-- omg. Have you tried it? Gorgeous. I've tried making my own palettes using the small Z palettes but it is harder than it looks.

Nic Nic said...

what a pretty palette - it looks really versatile too. I'm looking forward to your FOTD with it! Putting money on something that makes us feel good is so much more worthwhile than smoking pr doing drugs for sure haha!

Mandy said...

I double-taked looking at the liner in the pan and then swatched!!! It looks SO different! O_o

Eden-Avalon said...

I've never purchased an eye palette from a high end brand, I feel like I don't have enough skill with eyeshadows to warrant the expense. Still, this is a veeeeeerry pretty palette.

Beauty Box said...

Your reasoning is hilarious....haha!! there could be worse things to be addicted to...at least this makes you look good ;-)

AtomicNony said...

I love the colors on this palette

Susie said...

The colors are absolutely gorgeous!

Shivani @ Adorableonyourvanity said...

This is such a beautiful palette, absolute love!

The Queen said...

I fail at putting eye shadows. GAAAAAH

EveryDay Makeup blog said...

Gosh, the palette is beautiful. Lancome's eye shadows is very smooth and luxurious.

Rola said...

Cosmetics and skincare are as addicting as drugs for me. I do not mind getting more beautiful using the products:) Of course drugs will do the opposite to us.

Popcorn said...

I've never bought a Lancome palette before but I love to collect palettes. I usually get Japanese high end brands. This one looks so versatile for summer!

Sharlynn said...

Hahah..your comment on it being better than drugs...yes definitely! I love this palette, so wearable and neutral! I love how the liner IS so much darker when swatched but fall out sounds bad...the pink is so nice, I've been in love with light pinks as inner corner highlights...next time, when I've got the spare budget...one lancome palette for me!

Miaka said...

Can understand your 'hoarder' instinct when it comes to eyeshadow palettes, especially with the 2 words 'limited edition' because I am guilty of it as well :)

RayBan サングラスは本当に妙なメガネと思います。99人がそのサングラスをかけて、99人もかっこよく見えます。その魅力はレイバン サングラスしかありません。数多くのスターに愛用されるクラシックなレイバン aviatorは、今年また活力を起こされています。もっと多くのカラーとシェープで、個性的なレイバン RB3025が選択できます。レイバン 通販店舗は最近大人気そうです。

Oh my gosh! I am the ultimate makeup junkie. The colors! The packaging! The collection names! Like Midnight Roses by Lancome. I can't wait to buy it! In fact . . . I'm headed out the door now ;)
