FOTD – Ben Nye Grand Lumiere Palette

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 27 - 2009

Let’s make it an “of the day” day.  First the nails, now the mug.

I know a few of you have wanted to see how the Ben Nye Grand Lumiere Palette actually translates into everyday use.

Quite wonderfully is the answer (if I do say so myself!)

    I can’t quite think how to phrase this without it sounding rude so I’m just going to type it as it was in my head.

    Wow, your blending skills are getting bloody excellent and I’m loving the silver and purple pulled together like that you saucy mare (can you tell I’ve had a few glasses of wine?)

    Oooh, nice! :D
    I’m hoping these have a nice hefty discount at IMATS.. I was so mad at you for grabbing this before me from Goss’ blogsale but I’ve forgiven you now, my rage and jealousy has been overshadowed by your beautiful blending <3

    Lovely!! I am lovely purple eyes lately, and it’s nice to see a bright look :) I’ve been into smokey looks lately, myself.

    I now want this palette but I think I have dupes for all but Azalea in my Yaby palette XD;

    Wow, that didn’t make any sense. I am into lovely purple eyes lately, and love bright looks! I’ve been into smokey looks lately (finally delving into all my Fall Dior purchases… and some of the Christmas items).

    You are tempting me into this palette SO MUCH but I think I have dupes for everything but Azalea in my yaby palette, so I am goig to pass.

  12. @Yinnie – You can get it at Screenface in Covent Garden or there are some other theatrical stockists online. It should be discounted at IMATS in January if you were planning on going?
