A while ago, I saw Michelle Phan's youtube video demonstrating a day to night look with this palette in a different color (purple).
Back when Sephora had their 15% off F&F event, I hauled this neutral colored paletted in 100 Taupe Craze. (I admit I have this obsession with neutral brown palettes!)
The back of the packaging shows the 5-step process with this eyeshadow palette. Interestingly, this palette is made in Canada. (I always assume the Lancome we get in the US are made in US!)
I have tested the texture of this eyeshadow palette before in Sephora prior purchasing and that's why I know I love the creaminess and texture of this shadow. In my opinion, the Dior palettes are a bit too chalky for my taste and this Lancome palette is definitely gliding on a lot smoother without any fallouts~
However, reading some of the reviews on this product on Sephora, some people complained about how little of this product is with a hefty $48 price tag. Someone actually did the math that the whole palette cost a whooping $340 per ounce!! (well this palette only have 0.141oz in total) Well, even the quantities seem little, how often do we usually finish using an eyeshadow palette entirely? I think I may break the record using this palette!
Actual palette of the 5 colors, and 2 sponge tips applicators:
Very neutral colors, slightly to the cool side, but not as cool as gray neutral palettes... similar to the Dolly Wink 01 Brown Sweet Dolly (which as a little bit more orange tint):
Swatches on the back of my arm. I think Jie Jie would love this neutral palette but will not go to #3, the Highlighter, aka, shimmers!
EOTD look on me:
So far, it's working well on my NC-30 skin tone for a neutral day look. Perfect for the office too, (right Jie Jie?)
Thoughts? I love the creaminess and how silky the texture is when I glide the eyeshadow on to my lids. I give full points for the texture and also how it delivers a neutral nude make up look on me.
Do give this Lancome eyeshadow a try!
