Lancome Heat Wave Color Design Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Heat Wave Color Design Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Heat Wave Color Design Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.11 oz.) includes four warm, summery hues in one, limited edition palette. The shades don’t really have names, just color descriptions on the back with a finish listed underneath.

  • Beige is a pale, white gold with stronge ryellow undertones. This has a shimmer finish. There is a touch of sheerness, and it has more of a metallic sheen amongst the shimmer as well. It’s yellower than MAC Nylon.
  • Peachy Keen is a soft, orange-peach. This has a sheen finish. The color payoff was good, and the shadow itself applied very smoothly. Bare Escentuals Sundance seemed the most similar, but it’s more orange, not quite as dark.
  • Copper is a coppery bronze. This has a metallic finish. The shade itself is very smooth and nicely pigmented. It is similar to MAC’s Amber Lights.
  • Dark Brown is a medium-dark brown with bronze shimmer. This has a metallic finish. Despite being labeled a metallic finished eyeshadow, it is more shimmer than metallic sheen. The brown shade from Givenchy Candide Garden was the one that seemed similar, though it is a little darker and redder.

Most of the eyeshadows felt really soft and smooth to the touch; Beige was the only one that had a shimmery finish and felt less smooth compared to the other three–I wouldn’t call it gritty or glittery at all, though! It was also the only one that had good pigmentation, as ooposed to great, which the other three shades did have. This is a palette that coordinates really well for warmer skin tones. It’s has summer bronze written all over it. I do think that one would find the golden shade a touch too metallic to use as a regular brow highlighter, but it works well on the inner tearduct. The gradient in light to dark here is also useful, because it allows you to blend and layer the shades to create more variance between the hues.

The shades are housed in a metallic copper palette that’s slim and square, but what I did like about it was the inclusion of a miniature eyeshadow brush–an actual brush. It’s by no means the best eyeshadow brush I’ve used, but it will get the job done decently. It’s also nice to see a brush instead of a sponge-tipped applicator.  There is also a full-sized mirror when you open up the palette.

A-
For warmer skin tones, this palette is perfect for summer--the hues are on point for the shades of summer. Depending on how you use the palette, you might miss having a more toned-down highlighter shade.

    It reminds me in a way of MAC’s Cult of Cherry…

    Beautiful colors but I’m pretty sure I have similar shades within my collection…Although, I’m definitely considering picking this up as a little gift for my mom; I just went through her makeup collection the other day and all of her eyeshadows are so old that they barely give off color any more!

    I used to buy a lot of Lancome make up. Now that our only dept store went under a # of years ago, we have no where that sells Lancome within a good 1.5 hr drive. Thus I don’t see, play, touch and get the GWP things, I don’t buy anything at all from this brand anymore. More access to the brand, I would buy again, esp eyeshadows. They used to have good colors I kept as staples in my wardrobe needs. Also they can be counted on for matte shadows often in great color ranges.

  9. The palette looks gorgeous! I need it LOL eek you’re horrible for my wallet :(

    I love that peach color!
    This is sort of random Christine but you obviously updated the mobile site because the pictures are larger and more clear. Thanks! :]

  12. just not any special color and so little amount for the money…not worth it.

  13. Rosanna

    This actually reminds me of MAC’s Colour Quad 4 in the Spring Colour Forecast collection!

    My made my own mac 4 pan pallet last summer and put grain, paradisco, woodwinked, and satin taupe in it! Looks a lot like this palette!

  15. Meg

    I find that Lancome’s small palettes often have very similar colors! This looks eerily similar to the colors in a palette I bought for my mom for Christmas :(

  16. Jenny

    Hi Christine, do these eyshadows fit inside of a MAC palette? And are they easily depot-able? I love this palette and I want to put more colors in my palette.

  17. Rosie

    WOw this looks super pretty and super easy to use!!! I may consider this!

  18. This is super cute!!!
