Lancôme Sweet Butterfly paletteIf you, like me, are a sucker for anything pretty, you will also fall in love with this beauty. The Lancôme Sweet Butterfly palette is a travel-retail exclusive and boy is it cute! Cool-toned in general, it comes with three eyeshadows: one in the Color Focus formula, 501 (a sparkly steel shade), and two in the Ombre Absolue formula, A40 Electric Dream (a satiny purple) and F20 Delice de Creme (a shimmery creamy champagne shade).

More importantly, the palette also comes with a gorgeous blush called La Rose Butterfly, described in the packaging as an instant radiance mineral compact powder – it’s a pink base with slight peachy undertones and a silver sparkle overspray, while the bow is a darker shade of pink, the rose is a lilac colour and the small butterflies are purple. The overspray comes off quite easily, so after a couple of uses the whole thing will reverse to the base colour.

The palette also comes with three applicators (two sponge-type ones for the eyeshadows and a brush for the powder) in two compartments, and the ultra-compact case is decorated with golden butterflies. As usual with Lancôme products, the palette comes in a velvet pouch featuring the brand’s signature rose.

The first swatch piture features the eyeshadows, and the second, the powder. I swatched the blush colours separately for reference – the first represents the base shade with overspray, the second is one of the butterflies, the third is the bow and the last, the rose.

Lancôme Sweet Butterfly retails at Heathrow airport for £31.20 (about $50) – it may be cheaper at other locations.
