I got a cute little Lancome gift set for my birthday last year and that was one of the best gifts I got for my birthday. I ended up using almost everything from the kit except the eye shadow mini as I was not too much into eye make up then. Now recently, I started trying so many different eye makeup kits and I couldn’t resist trying this. I have already used an eye shadow from Lancome and was shocked to see how it worked. Paying so much trusting a good brand, I was so disappointed using the eye shadow. I never wanted this one to be like that.
This is a mini eye shadow kit that has 4 shades Latte (Matte), Burnt Sand (Shimmer), Faux Pas (Matte), The New Blue (Metallic). Among the four, the only shade that I could try liking is the Burnt Sand one. This has very light shimmers which is not very obvious. Rest of the colors are hardly visible. It was as drastic as my previous Lancome Eye Shadow. Even after using a good base, the color doesn’t show much. It is too light, not just for me, but I guess for any skin tone.
I came to a conclusion that Lancome doesn’t make good eye shadows and I should never purchase eye shadows from the brand any more. Though the colors are pretty, pathetic pigmentation makes the product bad. Even the previous kit had the same problem. I am still shocked and if any of you have ever come across any good Lancome eye shadow, please share it with us as I really can’t believe my eyes. I use all the colors only for day time as it hardly shows even after using a base !! Lancome single or Lancome eye shadow (set of 9) or Lancome eye shadow (set of 4), every set has disappointed me!!
Pros of Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow:
- Chic and simple packaging.
- Wide range of colors available in this range “Color Design.”
- This single kit has matte, shimmer and metallic colors.
Cons of Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow:
- No pigmentation or can I call zero pigmentation. I rubbed my fingers on it like 10 times and then on my wrist and you can see the colors in the picture, complete disappointment.
- No applicator available or provided with the kit.
- None of these colors are showing on my lids!!
- The colors just vanish in half an hour. Though the color hardly shows, whatever color that is left just vanishes like magic.
1/5 (one point just for the different kinds of eye shadows provided in one single palette. I like that idea so much but what is the use when the color doesn’t show on my lids or even on my wrists).
Will I Repurchase Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow?
Why would I? I already tried a different palette with 9 colors and an eye shadow single as well and they were bad too. This is the third one and until I see any good reviews about the Lancome Eye Shadow, I am not going to waste my money on this.
