Charlotte Ronson All You Need Eye Shadow Palette in Lake

Every time I venture into a Sephora, I always stop to look at the Charlotte Ronson display. I always find it interesting when a fashion designer branches out into cosmetics. Her packaging and colors give off a fun whimsical vibe that appeals to me.
