Unlike Fall/Winter where beauty companies grabbed us by the lapels and shoved their collections in our faces at one go, leaving most of us reeling, the same companies are going a little slow for Spring 2010. Well, slow for us here in Malaysia anyway. Dior was one of the first to showcase their Lace Collection for Spring 2010 which was already out in January 2010 but the other companies are taking things slow. Lancome for one, has been noticably quiet and playing a little coy.
In a way, I’m glad because I was really lusting after the Lancome Pop n Cheeks Gentle Lasting Blush in Coral Flirt. It was up there as a Spring 2010 lemming together with the Dior Poudrier Dentelle and Guerlain Cherry Blossom blush. Thus far, Dior has not disappointed while I did not get the Guerlain blush.
Gut feeling tells me I might pass on the Coral Flirt blush too because the story is that the gold bits are overspray and what you will end up with is a peach blush of which I have a ton of. One time I’m glad I did not run off and get it right off the bat.
However, all is not lost. Lancome has me by the throat in their Pop n Green eyeshadow palette. Ooh pit-a-pat be still my heart! But I’m confused about the eyeshadow palettes.
Is the green eyeshadow palette in the Lancome O My Rose collection called “Pop n Petrol” in a rectangle case with rectangle pans or is it called “Pop n Green” in the usual square case and round pans we are familiar with? Doing a lot of research online, I’m seeing both but not at the same time and the mind boggles.
You see the conundrum? Some sites list the eyeshadow palettes as Pop n Petrol while others list it as Pop n Green. From experience, the round pans tend to be for the Europe and Asian market while the square pans tend to be for the North American market. The texture of the eyeshadow is different (I prefer the round pans), which is why I’m a little puzzled.
The reason I’m getting even more puzzled is because some European bloggers are listing Pop n Petrol and USA bloggers are listing Pop n Green in the collection. Your head spinning already? Mine is 😛
Anyway, all the puzzlement aside, I’m hoping we get Pop n Green. I love the look of it, even if it looks a little similar to the #105 palette or even the #104 palette I already own. Quality is par excellance and the greens are fresh and pretty and besides, I take greens on the eyes well 😀
I’ll bring you news of the launch of the Lancome O My Rose collection when I have it. For now, I’ll continue my sleuthing in the hope of finding out which eyeshadow palette we can expect to see 🙂
