Earlier today, I featured 10 new eye shadow/eyeliner palettes by Lancôme. Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palettes ($48) offer everything you need to create a color-coordinated eye look. It's like paint by numbers!
Please check out my earlier feature to find out more about "my new palettes." Since I posted it this morning, there's not much sense in repeating all the nice characteristics of these lovely new eye shadows (and liners) in this feature.
I purchased six of them. I wanted to show you Bronze Amour before my feed went out today. I am a pushover for bronze and gold shades, and this palette "had me" at first sight.
I was able to get a swatch photo of the all-over base color in Bronze Amour, so this photo shows all five shades. I took the picture outdoors in full morning sun, and I applied each shade with a sponge-tipped applicator.
The all-over base shade is a shimmering pinky-peachy nude. You can see at the top of my arm how pretty it is. I will not be limiting the use of this shade to the occasions when I wear the rest of the shades in the palette. It's so gorgeous, I'll reach for it often. Good thing the shade in the pan is nicely sized! Plea to Lancôme: release this shade in a single!
The copper lid shade is shimmering copper with just a hint of orange to my eye. The brown crease shade is a nice one, but the highlighting shade, like the base, is rave-worthy. A shimmering gold, it's extremely appealing. The liner shade, which has a bit of sparkle itself, is a beautiful dark, coppery brown. Bronze Amour is a winner!
You can purchase these lovely new palettes from Lancôme's Web site, Neiman Marcus (where I purchased mine), Sephora, and, I assume, any other Lancôme counter.
