Lancôme Le Metallique Eye Colors for Summer 2017

What it is:
Long-wearing, high-pigment metallic eyeshadows without the fuss.

Colors in the Collection:

  • Bronze Rivage 04 (copper bronze)
  • Mocha Swing 05  (taupe brown)
  • Brise Azure 01 (turquoise blue)
  • Or Farniente 03 (champagne gold)


Verdict: I did some quick swatches of these new metallic shadows from Lancome and they are just beautiful. The colors applied so smoothly and are perfectly opaque. The shadow is applied with a doe foot applicator onto the eye lids and it dried very quickly. All in all, I am a fan of the new formulation. 

If you would like to pick up one or all of the Summer Lancôme Le Metallique Eye Colors they are currently available for $29.00 each at Nordstrom, Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, Dillards and the Lancome website.

Verdict: I am loving this collaboration. Just like the Jaclyn Hill collaboration, the colors in this palette are gorgeous and look awesome on my light/medium skin tone.

Butter London + Pantone Color Of The Year Eyeshadow Palette

What it is:
Inspired by GREENERY, the PANTONE Color of the Year, this 8-piece eyeshadow palette celebrates the essence of natural beauty. Say hello to a range of fiercely feminine, wildly luxurious color, infused with vitality and pure ebullience.

Colors in the Palette:
  • Rose Quartz (nude pink sheen)
  • Pashmina (matte violet grey)
  • Taffeta (shimmering violet)
  • Periscope (shimmering gunmetal)
  • Bone (matte eggshell)
  • Marble (matte soft dusty pink)
  • Greenery (matte vibrant green)
  • Velour (matte deep plum)

Rose Quartz, Pashmina, Taffeta, Periscope 
Bone, Marble, Greenery, Velour

Verdict: I have been holding on to this palette for a few weeks now and finally decided to use it. This palette is actually quite neutral other than the included Greenery shade. The shadows in the palette are very buttery and pigmented however there is a lot of fall out and I found the colors difficult to blend. I really loved the shimmer shades that were included but the matte shadows just weren't for me. Overall I just was not the biggest fan of this palette and honestly do not see myself reaching for it in the future.  

If you would like to pick up your own Butter London + Pantone Color Of The Year Eye Shadow Palette it is currently available for $29.00 at ULTA and the Butter London Website. Click the links for more details: ULTA, Butter London
