Look, don’t touch: Lancome Sparkling Cherub Illuminating Palette

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?

    This is so beautiful! I would be tempted to save it, but I’d probably at least use the highlighter :)
