There are some stunning pieces within the collection. The eye palette, the limited-edition Ombres Fleuries Délicatesse ($60), contains light green, white, pink, and purple shades. I'll spotlight that in this feature and move on to the other pieces as I have time to write over the next day.
Délicatesse eye shadow quad. Sorry it's a little used; that's what happens to testers as attractive as this one. You can see that the pretty stamped design in each shadow is starting to wear.
I swatched in full, noontime sun, and it was way too bright (I really hate it when my skinny arms expose my veins). I have difficulty getting swatch photos outside stores; they never please me. I suspect I could have done better about two hours later, but I had to move along. I used my regular sponge-tipped applicators to swatch, starting with the incredibly gorgeous green in the upper left corner and swatching in a clockwise order.
Each of these shadows has a lovely finish, with no fallout. I really want to purchase Ombres Fleuries Délicatesse to bring it home and play with it. That will have to wait a few days. Since it's limited, I hope I'll be able to purchase it before it sells out.
If you need help from a Saks store, give the wonderful gals at Saks Chevy Chase a call at (240) 497-5363. I understand that shipping is free if you use a Saks credit card.
