Lancome The New Black Eyeshadow

Lancome The New Black Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “metallic shimmered black.” It’s part of Lancome’s permanent range of Color Design Eyeshadows (which is their individual range). Color Design Eyeshadows have varying finishes, but all of them are supposed to deliver “long-lasting, pigment-packed color [that] stays true for daylong wear.”

It’s a rich, dark black with blue undertones and silver micro-glitter. I did a quick wash of this color on the lid (without primer), and it wore for eight hours before subtly creasing. Over a primer, it wears for twelve hours without any issues.  The texture is smooth, and the color payoff is really true-to-pan–it’s a dark black, and it doesn’t drag or go on patchily, as some blacks do. The glitter is embedded in the powder itself well, but there are the occasional pieces that fall out.

This shade reminded me of Chanel Mirifique, though The New Black has a stronger blue-base. I imagine it’s also similar to MAC Black Tied but more pigmented.

What’s your favorite shimmery black eyeshadow?
