The eye shadow palette comes with standard silver card box packaging as shown in pictures. The details of the products & product code are well written on the card box itself as shown in photo. After opening card box black casing with a gloss finish with the Lancôme trademark logo on the right bottom side can be found. The glossy packaging show fingerprints horribly, but is incredibly easy to wipe clean. It’s a convenient & palm size with push back locks so the palette is travel friendly. Inside the palette there are 4 eye shadows & one eyeliner shadow with two sponge applicator which are useless & large mirror which can be used for touch up in a go. There is also a plastic coversheet suggesting the use of each shadow.
My experience with Lancôme Color Design Palette in 308 Violet Magnetique
My experience with this palette is kind of love hate relationship. On one hand I love the shadow colors of this palette on other hand the staying power & pigmentation are the factors for which I hate this palette. Each eye shadow has different textures. The all over base is the skin color & has no shimmer in it. The Lid is Rose gold with lots of shimmer. The crease is very beautiful purple with lots of shimmer. The highlighter is sparkling silver. The Eyeliner is Navy blue with Rose gold shimmers in it. At first I tried to create the look with dry shadows without any primer which fails miserably as the pigmentation cannot be achieved. Then I saw the video of using this palette on the Lancôme site & used the palette same as instruction given in the leaflet given with the product. This shadows need to be used wet then only good pigmentation can be achieved with less fall out. However the staying power of the shadows is average for 3 hours without primer. This shadows can be easily blend able due to its soft texture & creamy finish. They are not powdery. However one should beware of over blending of the shadows.
Pros of Lancôme Color Design Palette in 308 Violet Magnetique:
- Smooth texture & creamy finish.
- Great choice of shadow colors.
- Nice glossy & Sturdy packaging
- Palette comes with mirror for touch up.
- Travel friendly
Cons Lancôme Color Design Palette in 308 Violet Magnetique
