Lancome Color Design 5 pan eyeshadow palette in Bronze Amour

What it is:
An all-in-one five-shadow palette for brightening the eyes.

What it does:
These alluring palettes feature silky, lustrous, long-wearing powders that transparently wrap the skin resulting in a seamless layering of pure color and a radiant finish. Build with absolute precision and apply the shades in five simple steps (all over, lid, crease, highlighter, and liner) to design your customized eye look. Contour, sculpt, and lift with soft day colors or intensify your look with dramatic evening hues for smoky effects.

Bronze amour is one of the nicest palettes in Lancome’s color design 5 pan palette range. It has wonderful texture and great pigment. It’s a nice choice for someone who likes warm toned eyeshadows and some shimmer. It doesn’t have any matte shades although crease color is more of a satin than shimmery. 

Includes 5 shades:
  • shimmery peachy beige Great for highlighting inner eye or under the brow. Very pigmented for such a light shade. It’s marked as all over base color.
  • lid color is a coppery bronze 
  • crease color is satin bronze, without shimmer and has slightly less pigment than other colors in the palette. 
  • highlighting shade is sheer yellow gold. In my swatch I swiped it three times to get color to show up more. It’s on a sheer side which doesn’t surprise me since it’s only meant for highlight over other shadows. But as you can see in the photos below you can build the color 
  • the darkest shade meant for liner/contour is absolute winner in this palette. Super rich chocolate brown with some shimmer. It’s unbelievably pigmented , smooth and silky. I would also use this as darker shade for outer corner of the eye. I can’t even imagine how beautiful would this be applied wet as eyeliner. I had to swipe only once with eyeshadow brush and take a look how much pigment it has!

Lancome color design palettes retail for 50$ and my experience is that they could be a hit or a miss. Depending on the color combinations and shadow quality. Some have 5 excellent shades some only 2 or 3. Bronze amour is a winner in my case because I like bronze eyeshadows, they look great with dark brown eyes and warm toned skin. Plus all the shadows in palette are great and work well when combined.
