LANCÔME La Palette La Rose review

LANCÔME La Palette La Rose review

Lancome’s Absolutely Rôse Spring collection has been making waves on blogs, channels and in magazines lately because of the rose petal highlighter. But for some reason the eyeshadow palette, La Palette La Rose, has been the underappreciated secret superstar of the release.

Lancome La Palette La Rose review

“This ultra-romantic compact case contains all the eyes and lips essentials for a tailored spring look!”
I love the art deco styling of the case. It’s compact and has everything you need for a soft, shimmery look.

“These colours were specially designed by Lisa Eldridge to be tried out, layered and blended as much as you like.”
The eyeshadow shades are very soft, pigmented and buttery. There are varying tones to help you achieve some depth with the look. Sadly it’s lacking a nice, matte transition shade but you can definitely make due.

As you can see, these swatch very beautifully. The mint green isn’t as pigmented as I was hoping but it’s a very nice alternative to a typical cream or beige.

For this look, I used all the shades except for the silver shimmer.

The mint green was used to accent the lid and the darker taupe/grey deepens the outer V.

This is the exact same look but I patted some of the silver shimmer onto the lid to make it extra fancy.

The silver shimmer can be a bit messy but it’s really quite pretty.

For fun, I tried it out on its own, no primer. I applied it with a swipe of my finger and it has the prettiest metallic finish.

This palette also contains a lip base and two velvet finish lipsticks. Thankfully the lip products are separated in another section with a secure lid.

The base is emollient and quite hydrating. The lipsticks are fairly pigmented and set to a soft semi-matte finish.

I used my finger to swatch the two lipsticks above. The shades are right up my alley, although the formula is a bit on the dry side.

Here’s the complete look wearing the coral velvet lipstick shade. I honestly don’t remember what blush or highlight I’m using here, but heck it looks good.

You can see how easily you can create depth with the deep grey shade in the palette. The only thing I don’t love is the dry-ish lipstick, but the rest of the palette is glorious.

  • You look amazing. I can’t wait to try this palette, it’s sitting on my desk looking pretty at the moment. Also, please please please can you show me how to use studio lights over wine sometimes?

  • Ooh, pretty! You wear shimmery pastel shades so well and those are definitely my kinds of lip shades! Love that this palette has a cover for the cream products so that they don’t get powdery and gross.

  • The colors on the palette lol so good on you, but they’d probably be invisible on someone like me lol. I’m really impressed by the ingenious use of that extra lid to separate the lipsticks!

  • It’s a gorgeous palette, and I love the quality of Lancome eyeshadows. But they never seem to put a matte shadow in, and it drives me crazy. Hoping to find some of the lip products soon!
