One of my favorite things about Fall is the return of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice latte. Seriously, I love this drink!
I used to pick one up almost daily while I was working in the corporate world. Not sure what I’ll do now that I’m working from home full-time… It might just mean more work sessions at Starbucks! Which also means that I’ll need to seriously look into getting a laptop case and bag soon. It’s called protecting your investments! :]
This is the laptop case that I’m currently looking at. Isn’t it pretty? Speck 13″ SeeThru Case for Macbook Pro, $49.95
I’ve had a fairly large pile of products to review since the Summer and I’ve finally made a good dent in it. One of the last things in my Summer pile is the Chris Benz for Lancome Color Design Eyeshadow Palette in Emerald Silk. This eyeshadow palette was a part of a gift with purchase special collaboration between Chris Benz and Lancome that occurred earlier in the Summer at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Since this was a gift with purchase item it’s smaller than a normal Lancome Color Design eyeshadow palette.
The top shade is an all over base. It looks white but it actually has a hint of lime in it.
Then from left to right is the lid, crease and highlighter shade.
And the bottom shade is the liner.
From left to right: all-over base, lid, crease, highlighter and liner
The pigmentation is really good on all the shades with very minimal fallout! The most fallout that I saw was from the liner but even that wasn’t too bad. As you know, I usually stick with neutral shades but I had a lot of fun with this Lancome Color Design eyeshadow palette. First of all, it’s so easy to use since each shade is labeled with where you should apply it- it takes the thinking out of doing your makeup! Also, the outcome is a really fun green eye look. You can easily smoke it out by bringing the liner shade up the crease more. I wouldn’t use the Lancome Color Design eyeshadow palette in Emerald Silk for everyday looks but I can definitely see myself busting this out for date nights with the Hubs.
You unfortunately cannot get this exact Lancome Color Design palette anymore since it was a limited edition gift with purchase. However, I think the Lancome Color Design Palette in 503 Mint Jolie ($49) is a very good substitute.
