Lancome by Alber Elbaz Hypnose Eyeshadows | Best of the sales

When it comes to the sales, Id rather bag a bargain from the comfort of my own sofa, snuggled up in my Christmas Juicy Couture Jami's with a glass of Disaronno in hand, than drag myself out of bed at stupid o'clock to be pushed and prodded by sales warriors. You know the ones I mean, the crazy ladies who grab items off sales assistants and start fights over the last pair of size 5 heels (maybe working one too many next sales in my Uni days has given me this opinion). Leaving enough time for shopping fever to die down, I finally decided on Monday to leave my Christmas induced food coma and hit the sales. 

After mooching around the shops for several hours, much to the boyfriends dismay, I convinced him to take one last look in Debenhams before we departed to the car-park. After smelling one too many discounted perfume sets I was just about ready to call it quits, when I spotted a bowl full of discounted Lancome by Alber Elbaz products from the corner of my eye. Several minutes of serious swatching later, I decided to make my way to the till with Hypnose Doll Eyes in L106, a beautiful iridescent metallic pale rose gold (did I mention that its seriously sparkly?) and Hypnose Drama Eyes in P105 a fabulous pearly pink shade, perfect for a sheer wash of colour over the lid or as a highlight for the brow bone.  

My thoughts? ... Seriously pigmented? Check ... fabulous packaging? double check (who could resist the hearts and dots design by Alber Elbaz) ...Want to know the best bit? These are currently £9.25 (originally £18), so your basically getting two for the price of one. 
Have you tried anything from the Lancome by Alber Elbaz Collection?
