Are you ready to peep one of the most gorgeous eye shadow palettes of Summer 2012? I thought so.

Introducing the Lancome Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Palette in Pink Safari!

What the Nordstrom website has to say about the Lancome Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Palette:


Infinitely luminous. Sensationally smooth. Sensational Effects by Lancôme is an all-in-one six shadow palette to brighten the eyes. Indulge in a limited edition compact with shades of golden pinks mixed with orange, copper and brown. Inspired by the desert sun and exotic mirages, it is a versatile, convenient palette to create a complete eye look for day or night. Limited edition.

Pink Safari contains six nicely pigmented shades of superior quality and even blendability. From left to right - a semi satiny pale pinky cream shimmer, a cotton candy pink frost with hints of gold, a soft golden peach frost, the perfect inner corner white gold frost, a warm copper toned bronze pearl, and a deeply pigmented dark chocolate with golden shimmer.


All of these shades applied like silk. The only shade I had noticeable fall out issues with was the dark chocolate, and it was just around the outer edge. If you were going for a really smoked out eye you could probably just take that fall out and smudge it under the eye for a sultry Summer rocker eye.

This is literally the only shadow you need to take on your 3-day weekend beach trip.

For this EOTD, I started off using UDPP as a base. For shadow, I started off putting the coral shade on the middle part of the lid with the MAC 239. In the outer V I added the copper bronze shade with the same 239. I placed the dark chocolate shimmer in the crease and blended up using the MAC 266. In the inner corners I used the MAC 219 and added a bit of the shimmery white gold. The cream shade was used for a highlight.

The eye liner used for this look was the Lancome Artliner Waterproof Eye Liner in Bronze Desire on the top and Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof in Bronze Riche (to be reviewed) on the bottom. The mascara is Too Faced Better Than False Lashes system.

Lancome Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Palette retails for $49.50 and is available at your local Lancome counter at department stores such as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Macy's.
