I love Lancôme shadows, this particular combination is very pretty. The only negative is that sometimes it leaves a dusting below my eyes from flaking off when being applied. But with the variety, one can go subtle or dramatic...either way looks glam!
Normally I don't buy an "all-in-one" eye shadow compact, but this one amazes. This particular color is a bit more yellow, whereas I'd prefer a bit more blue, but it still looks very nice. The amount of shimmer is a bit much, especially for an older eye, but I'm adjusting the application to make it work for daytime.
This review is not so much about this product itself, but more about the entire Lancôme product line and the AMAZING sales person who saved my life on Sunday, Oct.6th!!!Let me explain.....I made an appt. (at the brea, ca store) to have my makeup done at the Bobbie Brown counter for 12 noon on Sunday , Oct. 6th.....I made this appt. on Sat. The 5th....when I rushed into the store an announced my arrival and explained I was ready for my appt., I was told there was no one working the Bobbie Brown counter.... I was there to have my makeup applied for my sons wedding later on the evening!!!!! I wanted to cry! But this very sweet girl from the Lancôme counter said she would be very happy to do my makeup for me AND have me out of the store in under an hour! I had no choice but to trust her...she saved my life! My makeup was perfect, everyone said I looked beautiful, it stayed in place till the wee hours and my husband loved the look of the "smokey" eye she did for me! I am now a Lancôme convert!!!! You really disappointed me BB! Thank you Lancôme and especially thank you to the wonderful sales girl who worked her magic on this face!!!! I wish I could remember her name, but there is a reference to Pippi Longstocking....she'll know ! Thanks again!
I keep coming back to Lancome. I have also tried other high end brands, but Lancome's is easiest to work with and STAYS PUT! Doesn't change color or fade, and I have oily skin, so I appreciate that the eye shadow does not slide off my eyelids. They have a wide selection of beautiful palettes. My faves are Mauve Cherie, Lavender Grace, Petal Pusher and Taupe Craze. The compact is a good size too, all around very high quality.
