As promised yesterday, here's the Pop 'n Green Color Design eye shadow quad, which is one of two Lancome limited edition palettes for Spring 2010. It's definitely one of the more interesting items we've seen this season. No traditional pinks or other Easter colors, which is perfectly fine with me. I consider each color in the set a true winner and can think of multiple ways to combine them, though I prefer to pair them with neutrals and not wear them together, since this quad is very cool toned and my skin is somewhere in the middle.
The texture is among the best I've seen from Lancome. Their eye shadows can be a hit or miss, but in this case the quality is very good, except maybe Green Spark which is very beautiful but not as smooth as I would have liked. The color payoff is excellent, though, and there's no crumbling or shimmer fallout. The lasting power and color integrity are good when used over a strong primer (6-8 hours with Urban Decay, 10-12 hours with Kanebo Sensai).
Bottom line: Probably the biggest surprise of the season.
Lancome Color Design Pop 'n Green eye shadow quad ($42) is available from every semi decent department store as well as online. I bought mine from lancome.com that currently lists it as out of stock.
