Lancôme Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Bronze Amour

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.

These things are FLYING off the shelves in my store - comparisons have been made to Cle de Peau and YSL Eye colour!!! My store hasn't yet received the aqua and the sage green palettes, but keep posted - they will probably arrive tomorrow!

Hi miss Brahms!

Let's just hope your store bought enough of them! Frugal buyers are making it tough for you gals to actually sell stuff.

I don't like to make comparisons across beauty conglomerates. I will just say Lancome knocked the ball out of the park with these. Hopefully, L'Oreal will extend the genius to its other brands.

This palette is gorgeous! I'm definetely going to pick it up. Are you still going to review the other four you bought? I already have Taupe Craze and I want to pick up some more. I would love to see your review to help me decide. :) They are so pretty I am tempted to buy them all, lol.

Sure am, Annette!

I hope to get swatch photos of the green one and the teal one this weekend. Waiting for sun!

Bronze Amour is totally delicious. You will love it.
