Lancôme Holiday 2015 La Palette 29, Faubourg Saint Honore

October 17, 2015

There’s something very romantic about the notion of Christmas in Paris… the ball gowns, red satin slippers, kissing under the glow of the Eiffel at the chime of the Notre Dame, etc. And this year, Lancome brings us on a magical journey beyond the golden arches of the house’s rue du Faubourg Saint Honore famed address, into a secret Parisian garden on a mysterious winter night. Dressing for the occasion is never easier, with the chic La Palette 29, Faubourg Saint Honore!

Lancome L'Absolu Palette

At the heart of Lancome’s Holiday 2015 My French Noel Collection is this stunning La Palette 29, Faubourg Saint Honore. A sleek palm-sized palette with an intricate design emblazoned in gold. Inside, it houses 6 eyeshadows to create the perfect smoky eye, a hydrating lip base and 2 matte lip colors. There is even a dual-ended brush for eyeshadow and lip, and a generous-sized mirror.

So often with mixed palettes containing cream products, people would complain about powders getting stuck on the cream, or the potential for cross contamination. So it is a nice touch to find a swing lid protecting the cream lip products! There is even an illustrated tutorial to help you get started on that perfect smoky eye, and since it is printed on a transparent sticker you can still see yourself in the mirror, or feel free to peel it off if you don’t need any help!

The left side of La Palette comprises of 6 eyeshadows, and they are as follows:

And on the right of the palette, there are 3 lip products. From right to left,

All of the eyeshadows and lip colors are well pigmented, and the texture is soft and smooth. Here is the full makeup look featuring Lancome La Palette 29, Faubourg Saint Honore:


Soft and sensual for Christmas brunch! On the lips, I’m wearing a blend of both the lip colours on the palette, with the clear hydrating base as a top coat. And a closer look at the eye makeup:

For this eye look, I simply followed the “Night” look tutorial printed on the palette. First I applied the beige base colour all over my eye area, followed by the light pink-taupe on my lid up until the crease. Next, I applied the medium plum to the outer half of my lids, and darkened the outer corner with the dark purple. Next, I lined the outer half of my lash line with the dark purple, finishing up on the lower lash line as well. Finally, I added just a dash of the gold to the inner corner for a pop!

Below, I’ve included another look at La Palette on the eyes. I switched out for the newly launched L’Absolu Rouge Definition lipstick in Le Carmin for my lips, and now I’m ready to dance the night away!

    Linda you look so pretty :)! Beautiful! I don’t know why I don’t get on that well with Lancome? Although I like their products etc I never end up buying anything and if I do, I rarely use it. Without being able to say that the products aren’t ok, they just never blow my mind (same with Estee Lauder). Don’t know why. Do you get that with any brands? Paris is beautiful but have been there twice and it was a disaster both times lol! Not sure my favourite city!

      I understand your predicament, Eleni. I too, don’t always get on with Lancome products. I just think that brands move at different trajectories sometimes, and it doesn’t hurt to just take a step back for a while, and try out something else. Come back when the mood strikes you!

    Love the look here and the dress! You look ready for the ball 🙂 I’d like to spend Christmas in Paris one day… one day!

    • silverkis says:

      I think sometimes we have these fantastical notions about how romantic certain cities are…. My hubby and I went to Paris for our honeymoon (typical) and were so disappointed! LOLOL!! We actually couldn’t wait to get out of the city! But what wouldn’t i give to attend a glamorous ball in an enchanted garden on Christmas eve!

  3. You look stunning, Linda! Very lovely, indeed! :*

  4. Wow the last look is so glam, love the free shoulder here. Lancome’s eye shadow formula is not love for me but I love your lipstick in the last photo, stunning

      Gotta live it up a lil from time to time yah?! Even if it’s just a change of dress for a photo op! ;PP I know how what you mean about the eyeshadow formula… I haven’t been a huge fan for many years now, but this palette is not bad. I can see a market for it. But for us junkies who have too many…. things can get competitive! ;P
