This is the New Lancome Summer 2013 Aquatic Essence palette , I was so excited to see this at my local Nordstrom this past weekend.
I was immediately drawn to the palette, it is so pretty! I could not wait to get home and play with it.
I am very sad to say the palette while very pigmented and oh so gorgeous to look at , the glitter fall out is a bit too much for me.
I could deal with with minor glitter fall out, unfortunately the fall out is not minor at all. It was all over my face and it really irritated my eyes :(
I used three different primers to try to make it work; no luck with any of them!!
I really like the dark teal magnetic palette they are in.
The colors are saturated, very soft and blendable.
It Retails for $49.50 , and even though the colors are gorgeous I cannot justify shelling out all that hard earned $$ with all the glitter fall out. (Unless I was joining the glitter army but since I am not , sadly I will be returning it)
Believe me , I want to love this palette because the colors are beautiful.
Here was what the site says about it:
• Creates bright, luminous eyes
• Delivers pure color for a lustrous finish
• Long wear, 8-hour wear that does not fade
• Shimmering, lustrous pearls provide an intense, radiant finish
• Wet Process solvent allows for soft, silky sheen powders with high pigmentation
Shimmer? Lustrous Pearls? No, it is straight up glitter :(
