Lancôme Color Design Palette in Taupe Craze

Lancôme recently released ten new Color Design eyeshadow palettes ($48). These palettes claim to brighten eyes and have an eight-hour formula to last and not crease. Each palette includes five shades labeled so you know where to apply each shade. The palettes include an All-over Base, Lid, Crease, Highlighter and Liner shades. I really love all of the palettes but I decided to try just one out at first.
Taupe Craze is a cool taupey neutral palette that includes a mix of satin and shimmer finishes. All the shadows are super smooth and buttery and blend perfectly. They all have excellent pigmentation as well. Here is a breakdown of the shades in the palette:
The All-over base color is a light peachy beige with a satin finish. The lid shade is a cool medium taupe shimmer. The crease shade is a dark taupe brown with satin finish. The highlighter is a light shimmery taupe. The liner shade is a deep taupe brown with silver shimmer. The liner can be used wet or dry, but I found works best wet.
L to R: All Over, Lid, Crease, Highlighter, Liner
The palette also comes with an Artistry Tips booklet. In it they show you how to do a day look and a night look. They also recommend addition eye products to use with the looks. Overall, love the palette. The color payoff is great and I can wear these colors all year long. I think Bronze Amour and Coral Crush are on my list to get as well.
