While my man was busy at the Apple store, I ventured over to Nordstrom. I’d been looking at this AudaCITY in Paris palette by Lancome online for a while and walked over to the Lancome counter to check it our in person. And, after trying on some of the gorgeous eye shades, I found that it was a gift-with-purchase time and could not resist purchasing this item.
The cover of the palette is very slick and sophisticated in itself with a matte black cover design of all the famous monuments in Paris (Tour Eiffel, l’Arc De Triomphe, La Pyramide, Sacre-Coure, Notre Dame, Moulin Rouge, etc . . .) including giant high-heeled legs walking amongst them.
The colors selected for this palette are a fabulous combination of tones and shades, allowing for a grande multitude of possibilities.
Colors along the right side:
Filigree – golden shimmer
Choquette – light peach matte
Parfait – pale pink matte
Joie – light bronze shimmer
Voyage – light terracotta matte
Sante – warm golden matte
Exhibition – orchid shimmer
Zip Me Up – medium purple shimmer
Volcano – silvery taupe shimmer
Audacious – sable brown shimmer
Couture – matte mink brown
“It” List – pure black matte
Colors along the left side: Kitten Heel – metallic pink/peach, Tenacity – medium metallic brown, Clock Strikes 12 – deep grey metallic and Nuit – grey/black metallic. A near perfect range of highly wearable hues.
The compact also includes a dual ended brush for applying these eyeshadows, with a flat brush end for lining eyes or applying color in saturation and a fluffy brush end for blending color out or applying broad strokes.
And, with this purchase, I qualified for a Lancome gift with purchase – yay! I got to choose between a black or navy cosmetics bag with contents based on a warm or cool makeup combination. I selected the navy bag with ‘cool‘ choices. (I noticed that if received from an online purchase, the gift bag contents were pre-selected in one of three combination choices on the Nordstrom site.)
Lancome Gift items:
- Absolute Night Premium Bx Night Recovery Cream 0.05 oz, two other choices of creams to select from
- Full-sized Color Design Lipstick in Fashion Icon (love this color – a reddish purple with irisdescence, the other color choice was Sugared Maple
- Travel size Blush Subtil in Rose Flush (one blush, one counter shade and one highlight shade), the other color choice was Nectar Lace
- Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate 0.27 oz
- Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base 0.07 oz
- Deficils High Definition Mascara in Black 0.07 oz
I am very pleased with this purchase, especially since with the purchase of this expensive palette I was able to receive a gift of other Lancome products to try.
Thank you for visiting my site.
Give Me Gorgeous!
