I'm really loving Lancome's new Color Design eyeshadow palette in Taupe Craze. These shadows are extremely pigmented, and are geared towards neutral lovers like myself.
When I first got into eye shadows, I had no idea where to put any of the shades. Since, that's been over ten years I've gotten better, but I really wished they had palette's like Lancome Color Design around back then. This palette gives instructions on where to put each shade, and it also provides a booklet which shows exactly how to put it, and gives a detailed picture showing how the end result should look. Also, it gives you two looks, a day and night time look. I love that. Anything that makes my life easier is always a win for me! lol.
Here are swatches of the palette. The all over base is a pretty matte satin peach. The lid shade is a beautiful tan shade with shimmer. The crease shade is a medium brown matte. The highlighter is taupe with shimmer and the liner is a dark brown with silver shimmer. I'm all over this palette, although the highlight was a bit tricky for me. I actually used it in the inner corner of my eye and liked it there.
All in all, this palette will be used heavily on nights out. I actually used it on Saturday night when I went out with hubby and he liked it. When hubby notices my makeup, that says a lot.The man never notices my makeup. His excuse, "Why should I notice your makeup, I love your natural beauty." My only qualm with this product though is it's pretty expensive. $48.00 bucks.
What are your thoughts on this palette?
