Lancôme has a new French Riviera Color Collection, and while I might not be visiting France this summer trip, I'm pretty darned excited about visiting the beach next week for our annual family vacay. I thought this new Color Design Palette might get me in the mood, and I was right. The next couple of weeks? Total beach mode. I can't shake it!
Since I'm still nursing, I'm not experimenting with skincare (sob...it's one of my favs), so I'm making up for it in the hair and make-up categories. Think eye palettes stacked to my bathroom ceiling on the counter as of late (and you think I'm kidding). This palette truly stands out as a LOVE and one I heart because I just adore all of the marine blue hues. It's one of those colors, too, that if you're scared to try something new, it's a great hue to branch out to and test (dark green is another great one). Of course, this palette also has the sparkling gold of the sand. Ooooooh la la.
This 6-pan palette dubbed Azure Chic ($51) was sent to me for testing, and I'm completely crushing on the gorgeous ombre effects of the shimmery Blue L'ete...it's a solid winner. And I love the Cafe Creme for layering the most...such a great base! If you want a slightly darker base, try the Citadelle, or if blue isn't your thing so much, the Cote D'Azur is a supremely pretty mink shade. So lovely.
The entire collection includes eye liner, mascara, and lip and nail shades. I could talk about it all day, so you're just gonna have to try it to see what all the fuss is about! ;)
