Flashback Beauty Friday 84: Lancôme Summer 2007

Should I tell you the story about photographing these three times?  I probably shouldn't!  I'd already previously photographed the gloss, but remembering I had the eyeshadow (green, I thought), I decided to take them together.  After doing that yesterday (I was awake from 5am because of the heat), I was convinced I really did have the green (I pondered if age had discoloured it, until I read the shade name and knew it had nothing to do with green), so rummaged further and did indeed find a green tube.  I don't remember owning two, but clearly I did! If I wasn't so fussy, I would've just added in some separate photos, but here we are (I even changed the background because I wasn't happy with it)! If you're new here, Flashback Beauty Friday is a look back at old discontinued or limited edition beauty items.  These posts were supposed to be a quick wee photo and description, but I get carried away with swatches and details and over a year and a half on, this is where we're at! Last time was the Hard Candy charm bracelets if you missed those and I'm mixing jewellery and makeup again this week.

Don't yell at me, but I still don't have that post I've been teasing for weeks! I felt really unwell last night and I'd been busy during the day doing other things for the blog, so it's on hold again. It won't be next week either because if I can tease you some more, it's the brand I'm talking about today and I don't like doing the same two weeks running. It's one of their most iconic items if that gives you a couple of clues. Last time I shared the pretty Stila travel palette, Striking In South Beach if you missed that.

Unfortunately I don't have the post I spoke about last week (the one with lots of photos) as I still haven't had time to edit them, but I do have a cute wee palette for you today. Last week, I shared a couple of eyeshadows from the MAC Alexander McQueen collaboration, if you missed those.

Finally, a night I could sleep with clothes on and even a thin blanket at times. I've really been suffering in this heat the past wee while, I'm not enjoying it at all. I'm fine without rain and like the bright sky, but I can't stand being too hot. I was able to take some photos yesterday of a collection I've been meaning to share for Flashback Beauty Friday for a while now, but there's too many photos to get through today, so I'll save it for next week. Last time, was the pretty Paul & Joe hummingbird print on a fan and lipstick, today it's another fusion between fashion and beauty.

Thankfully it's a bit cooler today (before the next heat wave), so I've been able to move around and get on with work. As I was frantically fanning myself this past week, it reminded me of something I could photograph for Flashback Beauty Friday, so that's what I have today. Last time I shared my collection of Playboy Calendar Girl lipsticks with swatches, if you missed that.
