Lancome Style Section Eyeshadow

Lancome Style Section Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “metallic silver,” which is exactly what it is. It’s a bright silver with a high shine finish–very metallic–and decent color payoff, but it coudl have a softer, denser texture.

I tested out this particular shade on my eyelid without a primer (it’s supposed to be long-wearing), and it wore with very subtle creasing after eight hours. Over a primer, I had no problem with creasing or fading at the twelve-hour mark. This particular shade isn’t unique, but silver is a staple shade for any stash.

It reminded me of MAC Electra, which might be a shade darker.  It is more of a neutral silver compared to several others shades in the Swatch Gallery.

Items of Intrigue, Vol. 005


Items of Intrigue, Vol. 005

Here are five items that have grabbed my attention this week! I’d love to hear what’s at the top of your beauty lists this week.

  1. Jack Black Balm Squad Set ($25) includes flavors I haven’t tried — Mango and Mandarin. MUST. HAVE.
  2. Givenchy Pi Eau de Toilette ($54 to $73) caught my eye for its name and bottle photo, though reading the description makes it sound like a scent I might be interested in (woody oriental!).
  3. Deborah Lippmann Stairway to Heaven Nail Lacquer ($18) is a multi-colored shade that looks totally up my alley. I think it has a very winter wonderland look to it.
  4. YSL Gel Eyeliner ($25) claims to wear for twenty-four hours, which is interesting. It’s one of those things where 1) I have no desire to test (or wear) any makeup product for 24 hours), 2) I’m skeptical it will truly last that long! Looks like there are six shades; Jade black seems the most interesting.
  5. Benefit Watt’s Up! ($30) looks like a potentially workable cream highlighter. I wonder whether it wears well and how the shimmer looks on the skin.
