When I went to Vanity Fair for Oscar 2016 end of February, I received some products from their Social Shop.

I already reviewed Viktor & Rolf Perfume in Bonbon (dark pink box on the top left), Viktor & Rolf Perfume in Flowerbomb (light pink box on the top left), and Lancome Auda[City] in Paris Palette (bottom middle).
Here are the three polishes I received. I already reviewed Lancome in Rose Haussman (first one on the left). For this post, I will review the polish in the middle from Lancome.
This is Lancome in #153 Bleu Ciel Parisien. Since I did a thorough review of Lancome in Rose Haussman, I will base this on that.
Ingredients:
BUTYL ACETATE, ETHYL ACETATE, NITROCELLULOSE, ACETYL TRIBUTYL CITRATE, TOSYLAMIDE/EPOXY RESIN, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, STEARALKONIUM BENTONITE, ROSA RUBIGINOSA SEED OIL, CORALLINA OFFICINALIS EXTRACT, DIACETONE ALCOHOL, DIMETHICONE, SILICA, TRIMETHYLPENTANEDIYL DIBENZOATE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, OCTOCRYLENE, ADIPIC ACID/NEOPENTYL GLYCOL/TRIMELLITIC ANHYDRIDE COPOLYMER, STYRENE/ACRYLATES COPOLYMER
Here's a closer look at the color. It's a little bit brighter on my nail versus what's shown on the bottle.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my favorite OPI brush, the length and width is the same. The only difference is OPI is straight at the tip. Lancome is more curved/round.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of Lancome in Bleu Ciel Parisien, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I'm in love with the brush but I think I got a defected one. If you look at the picture above of the brush, there were one or two sticking out. Even with that, it was extremely easy to paint the nails. With the wide width, I paint several strokes and I'm done. Secondly, it has a medium consistency. It did get clumpy as I kept painting the nails, but not to the point it was hard to work with. With that said, it went on smoothly and there were no streaking and bubbles. Third, it looks light blue in the bottle and bright, medium on the nails. In person, it actually looks periwinkle or at least it does on me. It's a gorgeous color and I couldn't stop staring at it. My co-worker even asked to borrow the polish. It's a great spring/summer color! Lastly, I'm a huge fan of Lancome polishes. They're long lasting and they don't shrink. There's also hardly any chips. I noticed a chip at the side of the tip of one nail. Other than that, there was no chip at the tip. To be honest, it's not even noticeable. I only noticed because I examined my nails carefully and it's been over a week!

Would repurchase: Yes!
