Quick post: Desert Rose bronzer from Lancôme

Whoops, I managed to make it through the entire month of July without posting.   It's summer time and the livin's easy though, right?  Anyway, I'm going to try to gather up the last few summer items before my acquisitions for fall begin, so today will focus on Lancôme's summer bronzer.

I'm not really sure what this was supposed to be.  Obviously a riff on Lancôme's trademark rose, but how exactly is it a "desert" rose?  Maybe the spiky-ness is reminiscent of a cactus?  The pink and peach hues look like a desert sunset?

Meh.  I'm not all that impressed with the design - it could have looked, well, more desert-like, like Armani's Sienna Minerals bronzer from a few summers ago.  Oh well.  I've got an idea of what Lancôme has up their sleeve for fall and I'm not disappointed!
