Lancome Haul: Erika F & Ombre Absolute Palette in G20

I did some hauling last week on the Lancome counter in Selfridges – I only wanted Erika F, that beautiful sparkly gunmetal shadow from the counter but a rather good make up artist called Jay did a nice look on me so I bought a quad too:

The Quad is new out and exclusive to Selfridges for a month. There were three combinations, a green based one and typical smokey grey/black one and G20, the one I got:

The combination is a mixture of white, gold, grey and a sparkly black. Hmmm. It’s not too pigmented:

Hmm the quad is ok. In hindsight I’m not sure it was such a great purchase since its only medium pigmented and it takes a bit of work to get the colour strong.

On the eye – the yellow is not over the top at all:

Then my beloved Erika F (now repackaged):

This doesn’t show off the prettiness of this shadow – its a metallic grey olive with lots and lots of sparkles – tis stunning:

When you buy two things you get a free gift in Selfridges at the moment:

    Hi Rowena!
    I adore Erika F, this was my very first purchase inspired by a beauty blogger… lol! Sadly I missed out on the original release so mine is the one that came in the green quad and the rest of the colours in it are a bit meh apart from the dark golden khaki colour. Sadly olive in Erika F doesn’t show up on me very well, my already slightly olive skin tone draws it out. You should do Erika F look some time.
