Look what I got my hands on! Lancome’s limited (and largely sold out) Sparkling Cherub palette…technically an illuminator:
Inside is a gorgeous palette – it has a beige/light gold outer rim, a bronze in the centre and a small pink heart detail. There is a glitter overspray on the powder, which is just gorgeous but WILL wipe away after a few uses.
A closer look…just to admire….
Lancome releases some super pretty face palettes every year, no? Too pretty if you ask me – its that damn glittery overspray. It makes me want to keep my hands off.
Because you’re special and its Christmas, I did indeed, soil the powder a little and got this swatch for you. This is the top layer to there is some of the chunkier silver glitter there, but this wont be there in future applications:
I’d say the powder is quite versatile and is more than just a face illuminator. The outer colour can be used to highlight and the centre colour is a nice bronze – mixed together it leaves the warm honey shade above.
You can even contour/highlight with this palette me thinks.
In terms of texture, its not a super soft powder, but I think this means you are less likely to over load the brush with product.
Do you like the look of the Cherub palette? Would you use this or save it?
