I’m so late on this one guys. I got this over the holiday season & actually even used it then didn’t review it. I know it isn’t readily available in the US anymore but I still wanted to share in case Lancome ever comes out with something similar! I really love the layout the more I use it & thought just in case you had spotted it or were willing to check it out on Ebay I’d give you my thoughts! Keep reading to see my review & swatches!
To celebrate the festive season with sheer happiness, Lancôme introduces a new daring palette. Within an elegant black case, featuring the oh-so famous doors of the Maison Lancôme in Paris, La Palette 29 Faubourg Saint Honoré is made of six eyeshadows to create a luminous smoky look, and hidden like a treasure under a secret tap one lip base and two lip matte colours to create a made-to-measure ombré lips. With its elegant look and must-have shades, this eye and lip palette is definitively the perfect gift!
What really drew me into this palette is the format. I love the idea of an all-in-one palette but they’re usually such a mess. The eyeshadow gets in the lipstick. The lipstick gets in the eyeshadow. & in the end you’re left with something messy, gunky, & unusable. Lancome placed a metal flap over the lip products & that helps keep them separate. Although the brush is really useful for the first few uses to apply the lip products…I kind of wish it had a flap too? I know the eyeshadow will eventually mix with the lip brush. Overall, however, it is very compact. In a pinch I could apply the lip products as blush & lipstick with my fingers so it is actually useful on the go.
On the occasion of its Winter collection and to celebrate Holidays with happiness, Lancôme introduces a new daring palette. Within an elegant black case, featuring the so famous doors of the Maison Lancôme in Paris, La Palette 29 Faubourg Saint Honoré is made of six eye shadows to create a luminous smoky look, and hidden like a treasure under a secret tap one lip base and two lip matte colours to create a made-to-measure ombré lips. With its elegant look and must have shades, this eye & lip palette is definitively the perfect gift.
All of the eyeshadows contain shimmer & the deepest shade has flecked purple glitter as well. These swatches are without primer & when used damp the shade actually performs well on the eye. The swatches are pulling warmer & a bit brighter than in person, especially the lip shades. Inside is one primer/conditioner shade that is clear & two comfortably matter lipsticks. One lipstick is a brighter, healthy red & the other has more brick tones. In the swatches they’re more pink but built up on the lips they deepen up.
Anyone else fall in love with holiday items then get bummed when you forget about them? This palette isn’t coming out to play much now that I’m more into spring! Did you ever spot it in Sephora? What limited edition makeup purchases did you love this holiday?
