Blush Subtil Palette in Nectar Lace (#126, $42), a Face Sculpting & Illuminating All-in-One Contour, Blush & Highlighter, is categorized in the corals/reds, I wouldn't have given it much attention. My eyes usually zero in on the pinks and berries.
Last week, Cheryl Ganzer, a great makeup artist who was working at a Lancôme event, chose Nectar Lace for my blush, and I was smitten. It looked great! You may like this three-pan palette too when you see what it really looks like. My palette photo below is color-true. It makes me wonder about the Lancôme shot. This difference alone should explain why I passed by Nectar Lace while shopping online.

enhance, or diminish any features for a complexion that is illuminated
There is a contour color on the left. Lancôme suggests you sweep the contour shade under your cheekbones - and if you can't find the spot, purse your lips to located the natural countour area beneath your cheekbones. The blush pan in the middle should be applied to the apples of your cheeks. The highlighter shade can be applied on the upper cheekbone and around the outer or inner corners of the eyes, uncer the brow bone, or wherever you want to glow.
I love the contour shade at the top of my arm. It's a nice light brown - not too cool, not too warm. The blush, is stunning. It is coral, but I see a lot of pink in it. It looks sunny and bright on my face. The highlighter is a pretty gold that isn't too sparkly.
Rose Flush and Framboise Flirt, weren't the only colors for me.
Next time I have color family choices at Lancôme's Web site, I'll go to the counter and check them out. I may find buried treasure. You can find the Blush Subtil Palettes at wherever Lancôme is sold. I purchased mine at Neiman Marcus.
