Lancome Color Design Palette: Taupe Craze

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this palette is?! Lancome knows how to do it right! I just received this palette in the mail an hour or so ago and had to blog about it right away!

The palette I have is in Taupe Craze 100. Lancome has 18 different palettes (that I know of, maybe there's more?) in the Color Design range. I have never owned anything from Lancome before so when I came home to find this in my mail box, you can imagine how excited I was. That being said, as far as first impressions go, these eye shadows get an A+!

The pigmentation is amazing and the shadows are so soft! I would have taken pictures of the swatches but I ran out of good natural lighting, we can save those for a later post. I haven't got the chance to apply these on my actual lids, so I can't judge staying power just yet. But, I've heard great things and am excited to actually put them on! You get one those plastic films over the shadows that tell you the best place to use them and in what order. They all seem spot on to me expect for the preferred highlight shade, which is the one with the Lancome rose on it. That is way too shimmery to be using on my brow bone! :P Some people may like that way though, I'm not judging! Anyway, along with the eye shadows you get two applicators (which personally I wont use), your average sponge applicator and another that's shaped more like a cone.

This palette retails for $49.00 and you can get them at or

Expect an eye look sometime soon using this palette, and possibly some other Lancome goodies I've got my hands on ;)

This palette was gifted to me for helping out with a survey for a very exciting new makeup line by Michelle Phan. I am in no way affiliated with Lancome or Michelle. All opinions are my own.
