Lancome Coral Crush Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Coral Crush Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.141 oz.) is warm, neutral palette with only a hint of coral but mostly variations on brown.

The all-over base shade is a soft pinked champagne beige with soft gold micro-shimmer. Next, the lid shade is a soft coral-orange with faint gold micro-shimmer–this is the only coral shade of the five but love how it doesn’t lean too orange. The crease shade is a red-based, warm medium-dark chocolate brown with very subtle bronze micro-shimmer. Though I can’t imagine anyone highlighting their brow with it, the highlighter shade is a smoky brown taupe with gray tones and a metallic finish. The liner shade is a dark, smoldering brown with bronze flecks of shimmer that works well wet or dry; when used wet, the color is richer and the shade has more of a metallic finish.

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. The rich colors, blendable texture, and mix of textures gave this palette a cohesive feel.

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.

    Taupe Craze – Bronze Amour – Coral Crush !!

    Today I used NARS Deep Throat ‘blush’ on my eyelid and it looked quite like the lid shade but more gold shimmery and more coral-y, then Kate champagne-y brown shade on the outer.. it was surprisingly match this post so I just wanna share hehe :3

    No, this is not for me. It’s too “nude” for me. I like purple, blue, green and grey eyeschadows.

    I’m wondering if they got the highlighter and all over color confused! THe colors look pretty though.

      The colors aren’t mixed up. I had this palette applied by one of Lancôme’s national MA’s. First he did a day look and the all over base color was light and luminous enough to higlight the brow bone quite nicely. He then showed me how to transform the day look into an evening one. One of the things he did was to use the highlight shade as a pop of sparkle for an evening look. The MA applied it with his finger–just a dot to the high point of my brow bone, to the center of my lid, and in the inner corner. It added a beautiful sparkle to the look.

      I have warm, moss green eyes and this palette really makes the color pop.

    Sephora doesn’t seem to have this on their site. Weird.

    Really interested in this one, but can’t find it on sephora either! Boohoo.

    Anyone can list some dupes for these colors?

    Love these colors, especially the lid color- if I dont have a similar dupe I may have to go out and buy the dupe for that color. I have been drawn to browns, neutrals, and coral-like colors lately.

    I’m loving these new eye shadow palettes. They are among the best I’ve seen in a looooong long time! Can’t wait to get my hands on them.

  12. Suzanne Ghosh

    If you had to choose between this and Dior’s Rosy Nude palette which one would you purchase?

  13. Tracy

    Hi there,

    Do you think which one is more pigmented, Mac single eyeshadow or Lancome eyeshadow palette?
