Lancome Blush Subtil Palettes

When it comes to blusher and highlighter I find the high street have pretty much got us covered, but if it is a cool toned contour you are after then you just have to look at high end and these little trio palettes are have got all three products to perfection.

I have been using the 02 Nectar Lace Palette for around a year (pictured on the left) but have recently been using the lighter 01 Rose Flush Palette (pictured below) simply because I love the shade of the soft pink blusher. At £29 this is very costly if you only plan on using the sculpting powder but I cannot stress how high quality this product is.
The sculpting powder has a buttery consistency and is easily build-able to chisel away at those cheekbones. It is well pigmented and perfectly matte so only a little amount of product is needed. The texture leaves your skin feeling really smooth, used together with the blusher and highlight your skin looks and feels beautiful. All the powders in the 01 palette are well suited for pale skin tones, where as the blush in the 02 palette I would say is more suited to medium to dark skin tones, I find it a bit too vibrant for my milky skin. The sculpting powder in the 02 palette is however still really blendable and still works well with paler skin. Basically, Lancome need to realise that everyone is looking for a perfect contour powder and release the sculpting powder as a stand alone palette. Until then though, this comes in at £29 and can be purchased at most Lancome concessions and online here.
