Auda[city] in London is the second Audacity palette created by Lisa Eldridge (Lancôme’s Global Makeup Creative Director). The first one, Auda[city] in Paris was inspired by the minimal and simple approach to makeup that every Parisian embraces.
The second one, Auda[city] in London was inspired by the streets of London.

Auda[city] in London (€65,00/ 16.16 g) | The eyeshadow palette is housed in a solid compact with mirror on the entire inner lid.
It also contains a very good double-ended brush (one end is for applying shadow, the other end is for blending).
The shades are not very pigmented, however they are easy to work with.
The metallics create an elegant and chic look when applied on top of the matte shades.
The shimmery shades are more pigmented and work perfectly on their own.
The matte shades create beautiful day-time looks.
For a more intense look, the shades can be used wet.
All of them are comfortable and with a pretty good staying power, 6+ hours.
The palette is perfect if you are a novice in makeup and would like to experiment; with these shades you can create a lot of looks – including the smoky – without the stress of over doing it with too much colour.
The colour selection complement different skin tones and is perfect if you like a more classic, chic and elegant makeup; the quality/ price ratio couldn’t be better, in my opinion.
P.S. Poême is my favourite perfume ever, I find it looks beautiful photographed near this eyeshadow palette, however it is not related to Auda[city] in London.
