Currently totally admiring and loving this metallic bronze eyeshadow palette which my gf Jolyn gifted me sometime ago. Glad that I finally pulled it out to play with, the quality is simplying amazing, and I love all the shades in the palette, and how they work so well together.
This is the Lancome Color Design Palette in Bronze Armour - which I believe is a US edition palette (shame, right? Because I think our local editions of the Lancome eyeshadow palettes just somehow lack the pow-wow factor).
In my LOTD, I used all the shadows as labelled in the following picture:
1 - The pale peachy shade all over my lids
2 - The warm amber shade on my lids
3 - Medium bronze to blend into the crease
4 - Pale champagne shade which I dabbed lightly just under my brow bone
5 - Dark brown which contains multi-color shimmer bits, it is brilliant and I used it to define my eyes
A close up of the sparkly and metallic goodness -
Swatches - no base - awesome, right??
A close up of the eye look, I didn't go crazy with the crease color and the outer darker corners - which I would have done if I wanted a more smokey look - but I was going out for a work meeting (on a Saturday! Horrors) and I didn't want to dazzle work people with my makeup..but hey, it's a Saturday! I did apply a black liquid liner closer to the roots of my lashes, to help the falsies blend in.
And the overall look - love the warm golden brown on the lids, and the colors all work so well together.
