Purple eyeshadows are one of my favorites both cool and warm toned ones. I prefer shimmery purple shades more than matte ones (easier to work with) and that’s why I was very pleased with this palette. It contains enough both warm and cool toned purples and plums , soft enough for day but shimmery and bright enough to be worn as night time/going out makeup.

Nice thing about these Lancome palettes is that it comes with a little booklet/ guide on how to apply eyeshadows and how to achieve certain looks as well as clear plastic cover over the eyeshadows that clearly mark which color goes where.


All over base color is pearly soft pink. It’s mostly satin , leaning to matte and has decent enough pigment to cover the lid or for eyebrow highlight.

Lid color is shimmery smokey plum. This one is probably the most unique color in the palette. It is warm plum with the golden shimmer.

Crease color is shimmery purple grey. It is more cool toned and has great pigment. Blends very nicely and it probably has the smoothest texture in the palette.

Highlighter color is shimmery light purple, more of a lavender color. I am not sure I would really use this as a highlighter but it can be nice in the inner corner of the eye, or all over the eyelid if you want softer lighter look.

Eyeliner color is matte black that’s super pigmented and almost creamy. Very soft and smooth texture. This doesn’t really have to be used only as an eyeliner color, I would gladly use it in the outer corner to make the whole look a little bit darker.

Clearly this guide on color placement doesn’t mean you can’t use and place eyeshadows where you prefer. But it’s a nice guide for beginners. Many many women do not know where and how to apply eyeshadows. You would be surprised how many. I often here “Oh I love this palette but I wouldn’t know how to use it.”
