I made time to check out the Lancome Ultra Lavande Spring 2011 collection because I had to see how that pretty face palette looked. Yes, I know its now “old news” but its a pretty collection so let’s take a look anyway 🙂
Oh hello! Here’s the star product of the collection that flew off the shelves before I had a chance to say hello – Butterflies Fever. But here it is! HELLO! 😀 Glowy Ballerina is its name – purdy? 🙂
The 2 eyeshadow quads in the collection are still available – Cool Lavande (purples) and Warm Lavande (gold). The gold one is actually quite pretty, which convinces me more than ever that I’m more skewed towards cool tones rather than warms. The SA at the counter had Cool Lavande on her eyes and the gold is shimmery and a true gold.
There are lipsticks for the Ultra Lavande collection but what really really caught my eye are these – Absolu Creme de Brilliance liquid lipstick/lipgloss. These were launched overseas sometime last year and I was told that we weren’t getting them. I eventually purchased one through a friend in Canada (and paid a bomb for it) but I loved it, and I’m so pleased that Lancome has finally brought them in here! NOW I can review it without pissing everyone off for telling you about products unavailable here! 😀 So expect a review of the Lancome Absolu Creme de Brilliance soon-ish… 😉
And finally, I was told that the Glowy Ballerina face palette is mostly sold out but Parkson at Pavilion KL still has some and if you purchase over RM300 (at Parkson Lancome counters) you get a Sereni & Shentel headband worth RM150 free! Sereni & Shentel hail from Sarawak and design hair accessories, predominantly headbands. Find them online at www.sereniandshentel.com
And finally, here’s another shot of the Butterflies Fever Glowy Ballerina face palette/blush.
Yes I sat it down on a menu because I was impatient. The palette has nothing to do with beef meatballs 😛
Did you check out Lancome’s Ultra Lavande Spring 2011 collection? If you are looking for the blush, I know for a fact that Parkson Pavilion KL still has some but I’m told its mostly sold out. Not surprising really 😉
I also picked up samples of the upcoming Lancome Maqui Miracle liquid foundation. I’m told that unlike Teint Miracle, this one’s more for oily skinned gals and has a more matt effect. I compared the textures of Teint Miracle and Maqui Miracle at the counter and truly, Teint Miracle felt a lot lighter and creamier compared to Maqui Miracle. Still, I do like Maquiliquide so I hope I like Maqui Miracle too. Incidentally, the Lancome foundation range will soon be revamped and replaced gradually over the year. You can pick up your sample of the Lancome Maqui Miracle foundation which will only be launched in May 2011 🙂 Details are here.
