Lancome Bronze Amour Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Bronze Amour Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Bronze Amour Shadow & Liner Palette ($48.00 for 0.141 oz.) consists of four eyeshadows and one eyeliner shade, though the eyeliner shade is equally available for use as an eyeshadow. I’ve found that the shimmery shades can be used wet or dry, while the satin and matte shades are better used dry.

The all-over base is a pink champagne with a frosted sheen of a finish. The lid shade is a metallic finished copper with strong orange undertones. The crease shade is a medium, warmed up brown with soft red-orange undertones and pale copper shimmer-sheen. The highlighter shade is a pale yellow gold that’s almost cool-toned; I found this shade had some fall out and worked best applied wet. The liner shade is a rich, dark chocolate brown with subtle red undertones and burgundy-bronze shimmer–best liner shade yet, because it works beautifully wet or dry.

my thoughts on the formula: The texture of Lancome’s eyeshadows are very smooth–soft, silky–and all of these shades were excellent in terms of pigmentation.  I only had minor fall out concerns with the highlighter shade, so I would recommend using it with a damp brush.

I’m disappointed in the quantity provided in the palette, though. Lancome’s Color Design Quads come in at 0.16 oz. and their Color Design Eyeshadow singles at 0.0458 oz., which works out to be $263/oz. and $371/oz. respectively. This palette is $340/oz., which makes it more expensive ($48 vs. $42) with less product (0.141 oz. vs. 0.16 oz) than the Color Design Quads.

  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

final thoughts: This is a very warm palette, perhaps the opposite of Taupe Craze, with its dosage of amber, orange, and red undertones. I actually think this is the best palette I’ve tried so far from the line-up. Really bold, intense color and smooth finishes, with just the highlighter shade having some fall out.

    I’ve been looking for a good bronze palette – I’ve found it. I just hope they release it in India.

  2. Heather

    I have to get this… I’ve never gotten a Lancome palette before, but I’m all over this!

    Do you think these are better than the YSL colors, that were launched a few years ago? They do have a similar color palette to these, as well? Seems like they are better in pigmentation, than the Guerlain shadows.

    In the case you don’t know how to use this palette you’ve got explanation “this color for the lids, etc.” lol. I gonna offer it to a friend of mine. And for me just because I love bronze and collect them all….

    Pretty, but I already have all of those colors- amber lights, patina, center stage- MAC. This is great for someone who wants a travel pack.

  6. Polly

    Oh, I think I should grab this better than the cooler tone one. Seems like it will suit my complexion more!

    Ty, Christine :]

    Ma favorite of the bunch!

  8. This one definitely looks like the best so far, to me. I’m surprised I think so, because I generally lean toward whatever’s purple.

  9. Tish

    This is freaking gorgeous! What can I say, I’m a sucker for neutrals. Can never have enough of them.

  10. A pretty neutral palette

    Could you list MAC dupes for the colors in this palette?
    Thanks :)

    Because of you Christine, I’m going to order theblam shady lady… haven’t decided on vol 2 or 3 yet but even so I just can’t wait for my tax refund! The sage green looks beautiful.

    I was just in Sephora today and played with these palettes, this one and the taupe one are my FAVORITES! These really are worth checking out in person. I also really liked the purple one, buuuuut was really only crazy about two colors in the purple palette, so I will be passing on that, though I am hoping Lancome updates their shadow collection and adds some of the colors from these palettes as individual shadows. The colors in this palette are super sparkly (i mean that in a good way!), and are very smooth. I am excited about these, minus the price tag!! :)
