The collection was designed by Aaron de Mey and I think it's the most whimsical yet sophisticated collection Lancome has released in ages. I absolutely adore every product in the release! The eyeshadow palette, however, is my favorite because it is well pigmented and the color scheme is well balanced. The colors can be worn as sheer washes of color or built up to create a striking colorful eye. The slight contrast of the more neutral pastel green on the lid and the more cool Robin's egg blue adds dimension while the deep liner shade anchors down the brighter colors.
It is somewhat similar to Lancome's permanent Color Design palette in Teal Fury, one of my all-time favorite eyeshadow palettes. I, however, prefer Vert Tendresse at the moment as it is a touch warmer, easier for me to wear all year round because of my warm coloring. Dior recently released their rose embossed green eyeshadow palette but it is rather frosty and not quite as user-friendly. I'll review it tomorrow so you can see for yourself. While Vert Tendresse may not be as striking in the pan because it doesn't have any embossments, it creates a "complete" eye look that doesn't need much fussing with. That's what I love most about the Color Design palettes!

Bottom Line: If you can only invest in one spring eyeshadow palette this year, try this one! I'll have the tutorial posted this week so you can see it in action.
