Lancome Blush Subtil Palette review!

I purchased the Lancôme Blush Subtil Palette a few months ago as I thought it was great that it was a 3-in-1 product. 
I'd been after a contour for a while so as soon as I saw the palette I got it! 

It is a blush, contour and highlighter in one. Genius. 

The palette comes in two colourways: 01 Rose Flush (the one I have) and 02 Nectar Lace.
Rose Flush is slightly pinker in colour and Nectar Lace is more of a deeper pink.
I have fair skin and the Rose Flush is just right and not too deep a colour for my skin tone.

On the left of the palette is the contour. I hadn't used one before and when I first applied this I thought "what have I done, I now have a massive brown stripe on my face!" You really do just need the smallest amount on your brush and then blend, blend, blend!
Once blended you can definitely see what a difference it makes to highlight the cheekbones.

I also blend a small amount down the sides of my nose and along my jawline to try and slim my nose and minimise double chin! I think it does make a difference, a slight one, just don't use too much, as the lines will be obvious otherwise!

Onto the blush.......

I really like the colour of the blusher. It is a sweet pink with subtle shimmer shot through it. My photos show off the shimmer, but it is not that obvious in real life and on the skin.

I use my big kabuki brush and swirl it onto the apples of my cheeks and slightly up to the temples. It gives me a healthy pink glow - and what is great is that it can be built up if you want a strong blush look.
Once the blush is applied, it looks great with the contour and really does bring out the cheekbones.

Lastly, on the right of the palette is the highlighter. This is a very subtle one. It also has a very slight shimmer, but again, is not obvious at all once on the skin. I apply this on the top of the cheekbones just to make them pop that teeny bit more.
I'll usually pop a bit down the bridge of my nose, but be careful not to use too much as it will give you an obvious stripe if you're heavy-handed with it!

Left to right: Contour, Blush, Highlighter.

I am really pleased with the Blush Subtil Palette. The colours work well for me, it's very easy to use, feels soft on the skin, lasts all day and so far the product is lasting well too.

It costs £27 and while I thought this was a little steep at first, you are getting 3 products in 1 palette, that are designed to compliment each other and is great for traveling or having in your handbag, as you only need the one palette!

I think I will be re-purchasing this one when I need to!

Have you got the palette? Thinking of getting one? Or have you found another great product that you prefer?
I'd love to know!

From Me, For You xoxo
