Lancome Zip Me Up Eyeshadow

Lancome Zip Me Up Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “metallic eggplant purple.” 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 subtly cool-toned, medium-dark purple with a hint of burgundy-red. The color payoff is average at best but more along the lines of mediocre, because it’s patchy and uneven. The poor pigmentation is the result of a dry, stiff texture that has a slightly rough consistency. I’ve worn several of Lancome’s metallic-finished eyeshadows to test out the wear (but not this particular one), and I typically get eight hours of wear (without a primer) before there is subtle creasing.

Bare Escentuals Encore is brighter., while Milani Purr-fect Purple is slightly lighter, and theBalm All the Way Annie is more vibrant.

This is one of the poorest performing Lancome eyeshadows I've come across! They have a lot of excellent eyeshadows with nice color payoff and smooth textures, so it was disappointed to find this one to be such a dud.

    D-F grade from Christine = kiss of death

    Thank you! Don’t you just hate when such a lovely color doesn’t make it from the pan to your face? A lot of purples that I see are like that, I wonder why?

    How sad. It looks gorgeous in the pan. What if you use it wet? Can you?

    Really? But the pigmentation looks really nice according to the swatch?? Was it just a dry texture or something?

    Just average :-(

    I have this one and have had zero issues with color payoff. Zip me up is actually one of my favorite colors.

  7. Too bad the texture is so bad…the color in the pan is lovely! I always think of the character Lucille Bluth from “Arrested Development” when I hear the phrase “Zip me up,” lol.

  8. I’ve noticed there are some problems with the lancome single shadows. Some of them are just uneven and have a lot of fallout when applying

    The swatch actually looks lovely but I agree with others – a grade like this from you means I will pass on it.

    In the pan it looks a lot like Rockstar by UD. That one swatches beautifully but on my lids it seems to disappear in a few hours, even with primer.

  11. The color looks pretty in the pan but disappointing in the swatch!

    I think you might have gotten a bad batch Christine! I picked up this shade and I LOVE it! I didn’t have any problems with pigmentation or a dry texture.
