I was feeling out of sorts yesterday partly because I was woken up early, and then taken for a ride – quite literally, halfway up to Ipoh before we made it back to KL (We took a wrong turn and the driver wouldn’t listen to me – men! :P ) . So in the afternoon, I went on a bit of last minute Chinese New Year shopping for new clothes. Yay for retail therapy :P
Anyway, I’d also learnt that the Lancome O My Rose collection is out at counters so I stopped by to take a look and make some brief observations.
Lancome Pop n Petrol Eyeshadow palette (RM140)
Ok mystery solved. We are getting the Pop n Petrol (rectangle), not Pop n Green (round) palette. I thought the Pop n Petrol would be blah. I’m very happy that Lancome has proven me wrong.
At first glance, I thought it was close to the Color Focus quads in #104 and #105 (both discontinued I believe) but I might be mistaken. There is a shade in there that looks a dupe of that infamous Erika F shadow so we’ll see once I dig into it! I’ll do you comparisons and everything over CNY :)
There is another more neutral palette in Pop n Copper but I felt it was a bit warm. Would be lovely on anyone who can pull off warm coppery shades though. I can’t so its definitely no go for me. I was actually at the Lancome counter to pick up the Pop n Cheek blush but paused for a moment to think.
Lancome Pop n Cheek Blush Palette – Coral Flirt (RM115)
It was cheaper than I expected and honestly, even without all the gold glitter, it was still pretty in a geometrical fashion. Its a blend of coral, yellow and peach shades and doesn’t look half bad.
My only problem was getting it to show up because its light. Pretty as a light peach-coral blush but I already have a bunch of light blushes for now. The jury is out on whether I liked it enough to buy it. I was planning to but decided to think about it a bit more.
What I ended up buying were clothes – and I liked a dress from Zara so much, I bought it in both colours available :P It was on sale and was something like RM49 or so for light satin material, fit like a glove in all the right places and looked pretty good on. The best sort of buys :)
I’m taking a slow drive home to my hometown this evening to celebrate the coming Chinese New Year with my family. Not my favourite time for travel, but I had no choice. If you are traveling as well, do drive safely!
