Lancome Color Design ‘Tailored’ Matte Eye Shadow Review

After using Lancome’s Eye Palette, I wanted to try their matte eye shadow. They have a wide range of eye shadows in various variants like Intense, Matte, Matte/Shimmer/Sheen, Matte and Shimmer, Metallic, Multi, Sheen and Shimmer. My sister was raving about their matte eye shadows, so I asked her to get one for me. She got the shade ‘Tailored’ which is a lavender color matte eye shadow.

I was wondering why she got a lavender-colored eye shadow?? She then told me she had the same shade and she liked it so much. Also, she was not very sure whether the other shades were as good as this. So, she wanted me to try the one she loved first and if it was impressive, she would get more shades for me. So sweet na? No wonder so many want to borrow her 😉

The matte eye shadow is a truly matte color and the shade ‘Tailored’ is a light lavender color which would go perfectly with your purple, pink and lavender clothes. These eye shadows are very powdery and you definitely need a good base, especially for a light color like ‘Tailored’ to show up on your lids. The staying power was disappointing and also I wanted a more intense color, so this did not become my favourite unlike my sister. She still argues with me for the reason that she loves this color and the glam it adds on to her makeup, but for me, somehow I feel it makes me look more dull any day.

This is completely a day wear shadow as it is not going to show much during the evening or at night.  So, it is completely based on one’s preference whether you like this shade or not. You have 18 more shades to choose from this range.

2/5, again this is just my opinion. My sister loves this shade and she might give a 4/5 !!

Would I Repurchase Lancome Color Design ‘Tailored’ Matte Eye Shadow?

OMG No !!! Not such an expensive eye shadow. I would have given it a thought if at all the shade had been more bright and vibrant or if at all it was < $15. Now, I don’t find any reason to buy this again. Even as a gift, I told my sister to get me eye shadows from some other brand !!

I have used this just once or twice and I was waiting for IMBB’s sale, so that I can put it up in the sale. Meanwhile one of my very close friend saw this and she liked it. So, I just gave it away. The very next day I saw the post in IMBB that the sale is back !!! 😀
