Lancome Volcano Color Design Eyeshadow

Lancome Volcano Color Design Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “muted taupe-grey” with a shimmer finish. It’s a great variation on taupe–a cool-toned brown with a grayish overcast and has more of a satiny sheen than an overt shimmer finish, but it doesn’t deliver on full color coverage. As far as similar shades, theBalm Selfish and NARS Grand Palais are close in color but much more shimmery. MAC Satin Taupe is much more intense and deeper.

Unfortunately, the color payoff is somewhat lacking; it deposits decent color, and I discovered it performed a little better applied on the eye, but it’s just not as good as it could (or should) be and definitely requires some packing and pressing of the color onto to the lid to get decent payoff. The texture is soft without being powdery or too fragile. The formula is designed to be long-wearing with “pigment-packed color” that “stays true for daylong wear.” As expected, the wear is not perfect without a primer–I get around eight hours, after that point there is very subtle creasing–but have no issues when it is applied over a primer.
