For Spring 2012 Lancome has released their Rose Romance palette. This palette is a very pretty mix of peach, pinks and even a plum. It contains a highlighter, all over lid palette, base color, contour color, and a liner. I don't wear too much pink around my eyes, just because I'm all about browns, and coppers, and purples, but when I applied these shadows, and saw how much brighter my face looked, it really made me want to explore pinks more especially for the spring.

Lancome says these shadows will last eight hours and I agree. I wore them for about seven hours and they still looked fresh Here are swatches of the palette:
|Left to right: All over color, lid color, crease color, highlight, contour/liner|
I found all of the shades to have shimmer. The all over base is a champagne. The lid color is a very pretty coral peach ( so springy). The crease color is a medium pink, the highlight color is a a champagne with pink and the contour color is a def more on the plum brown side (although Lancome describes it as a burgundy). The shadows apply smoothly with very good pigmentation. That contour/liner is super pigmented when wet too. Bottom line this will be one of my go to palettes for the spring. As I said before I was a little hesitant to try it because I stay away from pinks, but this one actually worked really well with my warm skin tone. Here's a quick look I did using Lancome's Day Time instructions with the Rose Romance palette. Lancome also gives you instructions on how to create a night time look but since I was just going on a play date, I thought the day time look would be more appropriate.
So what do you think of this palette?
Would you splurge on it?
What are your fave pinks?
