I have no idea why, but for whatever reason I kept postponing this review for the longest time.
This is the Lancôme Blush Subtil Palette #02 Nectar Lace, one of the most beautiful face palettes I had the chance to use! Briefly though… As I discovered something else that caught my attention and made me “hide” Nectar Lace under a pile of other beautiful blushers, powders and highlighters…
The packaging is so sleek and elegant, and the signature golden rose in bloom gives it a plus of class and style.
This is a lovely trio made of a contour shade, a gorgeous blush and a pretty warm highlighter. The blusher was the one that I was mostly drawn to, and the main reason why I got it. It seemed like the perfect dupe for NARS’ Orgasm, which I had swatched once in Milan but never bought!
The blush in the Nectar Lace palette is definitely a gorgeous peachy-pink, with specks of golden glitter through it. It’s very pigmented but a little bit too “dusty” for my liking, without it necessarily being finely milled. But it definitely gives “a flush of happiness” to your entire face.
It’s an excellent option for spring and summer, but I don’t see why you couldn’t wear it all-year-round.
The highlighter is the second best thing is this palette. It’s a warm, golden shade… Somewhere along the lines of Becca‘s Opal, if you know what I mean! Maybe something close to the infamous Champagne Pop – at least it looks so from the swatches I saw online!
My least favourite is the contouring shade which I find too warm and orange-y for my skin tone ( this palette was made for medium to dark skin tones anyway, but I simply couldn’t resist that blush! I mean… Could you?! ). It is also kind of patch-y and really hard to blend. Nothing can beat my Kevyn Aucoin Medium or the Tom Ford Terra.
Here you have the swatches. Pretty, aren’t they?!
Definitely check this little palette out, especially if you have the right skin colour! It would look amazingly on your skin!
For the obvious reasons I told you about at the beginning of this post, I’m selling this beauty hoping that it will find itself a better owner to love and cherish it the way I should. See my on-going blog sale here! Have a look! Who knows, you might find something that you can’t live without there!?
See you soon, Beautiful!
