My brother got married a couple weeks ago, and believe it or not, these were the colors of their wedding! Orange and green! When these products came in the mail, I almost did a cartwheel (but I didn’t, fear not). I was thrilled to see these products come in, because I knew they’d look beautiful at the ceremony.
I can’t rave enough about this eye shadow palette. It’s BEYOND ridiculous. Seriously, it’s amazing. The color is so strongly pigmented, it’s a dream, I swear. The colors go so beautifully together, and each palette comes with instructions on how to apply them both for day and evening wear. You can put the shadow on wet or dry – and the result is GORGEOUS. (FYI: The dark bronze color on the bottom I used wet as an eye-liner, and it was out-of-this-world!)
Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette is Lancôme’s biggest eye shadow launch in a decade!
Wet Pour Process, a new Japanese technology that delivers a supremely silky, vivid and long-lasting shadow is being used for the first time by Lancôme. The technology works by combining loose pigments and solvent, which are poured into a pan and lightly pressed. As the solvent evaporates, the shadow becomes a solid. Traditional shadows are hard-pressed, which can crush pearls and deliver less color pay-off.
Thanks to this process, the Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette shades are luxuriously smooth with high-potency color. The powders offer excellent glide and slip.
