LOTD: Lancome Color Design Palette Bronze Armour

Hi hi!

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.  

All products used:

Face - Lancome Regenerie CC Cream, Lancome Teint Miracle Cream foundation, Lancome Teint Miracle Loose Powder

Concealer - Laura Mericer SC-03

Lips - Lancome L'Absolu Nu 311 (deep red, 2 layers and dabbed off excess)

Cheeks - MUFE Mat Bronzer, Lancome Blush Highlighter, MAC Cheeky Bronze MSF

Brows - Shu Uemura pencil, brow manicure

Eyes - NARS primer, Lancome Color Design Palette Bronze Amour 101 (color placement refer to pictures above, I followed the guide as shown) 

Lashes - Katy Perry Eyelure 'oh so honey' and Lancome Hynose Star mascara lower lashes

Thanks Jolyn for giving me the palette!  LOVES!! 

Thanks for reading!

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.
