Lancome Aquatic Essence Eye Palette / Summer 2013 collection

direct sun


 This is the New Lancome Summer 2013 Aquatic Essence palette , I was so excited to see this at my local Nordstrom this past weekend.

I was immediately drawn to the palette, it is so pretty! I could not wait to get home and play with it.

I am very sad to say the palette while very pigmented and oh so gorgeous to look at , the glitter fall out is a bit too much for me.

I could deal with with minor glitter fall out, unfortunately the fall out is not minor at all. It was all over my face and it really irritated my eyes :(  

I used three different primers to try to make it work; no luck with any of them!! 

I really like the dark teal magnetic palette they are in.

The colors are saturated, very soft and blendable.

It Retails for $49.50 , and even though the colors are gorgeous I cannot justify shelling out all that hard earned $$ with all the glitter fall out.   (Unless I was joining the glitter army but since I am not ,  sadly I will be returning it)

Believe me , I want to love this palette because the colors are beautiful.

Here was what the site says about it:

• Creates bright, luminous eyes
• Delivers pure color for a lustrous finish
• Long wear, 8-hour wear that does not fade

• Shimmering, lustrous pearls provide an intense, radiant finish
• Wet Process solvent allows for soft, silky sheen powders with high pigmentation

Shimmer? Lustrous Pearls?  No, it is straight up glitter :(
