As usual, I am dying over Lancome’s latest launch. For fall, they came out with two new Color Design Eye Shadow palettes, the Golden Sage and the Olive Amour. I own several of these palettes and adore them all, so without even seeing it in store, I snatched up my very own. If you are interested in buying one of these, act fast because Nordstrom is in their Gift With Purchase right now (Macy’s too, I believe).

What I absolutely adore about these palettes is that you are getting five shades for fifty dollars. And all of the shades are buttery soft and smooth, and usually shimmery. You may view that as a pro or a con that all the shades here have shimmer. I personally LOVE it. It’s not a glittery disco ball situation, it’s tasteful and I find it to be a flattering amount of shimmer/shine that comes from these shades.

The center shades from left to right are a lid, crease, and then a highlighter shade. Of course, you can wear these however you would like. I don’t know that I would ever use the far right shade as an actual highlighter. I like to wear it in the center of my lid. But to each their own! There are some beautiful colors represented here! 

olive amour 2I just love how these shades all catch the light. If I could change one thing about the palette, I might have added a matte brown, but I am totally dying over the palette regardless. Can you handle the luminosity? I’m dying over it.

    I love these palettes. I grabbed Grandiose and their new eyebrow pencil the other day. I did not see this or I would have snatched it up.
