Lancome Fashion Forward Color Design Eyeshadow

Lancome Fashion Forward Color Design Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “warm minted green” with a metallic finish. It looks absolutely NOTHING! like the swatch/photo of it on Lancome’s website, which makes it look more like a vibrant neon lime green. Instead, what we have is a pastel mint green with a subtle iridescent sheen. The color payoff is decent but could use a little more oomph or better binders so it would apply more opaquely. I know shades like this have to exist, but I couldn’t find anything in the Swatch Gallery; MAC Aqua was the closest, but it’s darker and more aqua, less green. It might be a little lighter than something like MAC Aquavert (which is a few years old now). Sugarpill Lumi has more of a teal iridescence.

Tarina Tarantino Wonderful Jewel Eyeshadow Palette

On the left, there’s a soft yellow with a frosted, slightly metallic finish. The color payoff is nice, and the texture is smooth. Make Up For Ever #102 is a bit darker and matte. It’s closer to theBalm Wild Child and MAC Nylon.

Estee Lauder Cyber Silver Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow

Estee Lauder Cyber Silver Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a dark silver-shimmered gray. It looks a bit darker, less silver (and certainly less metallic) when applied dry compared to when it is applied wet, where the metallic sheen and therefore silver nature of the hue comes through much more. Either way, though, the color payoff is tops. The shade reminded me of Dior Smoking Blue, but this is more metallic. It’s a little lighter compared to Bobbi Brown Silver and Urban Decay S&M.
