{Review} Lancome Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette - Taupe Craze

Hi! Before we get started with the review, I wanted to let you all know that I usually publish scheduled posts over the weekends (because that's usually the only time I have to work on them), so if you don't get a response from me and you see a new post up during the week, I'm not ignoring you! I will most likely get back to you (and visit your blog) on the weekends.

Anyway, here is a review of my Taupe Craze palette by Lancome:
An all-in-one five-shadow palette for brightening the eyes. These alluring palettes feature silky, lustrous, long-wearing powders that transparently wrap the skin resulting in a seamless layering of pure color and a radiant finish. Build with absolute precision and apply the shades in five simple steps (all over, lid, crease, highlighter, and liner) to design your customized eye look. Contour, sculpt, and lift with soft day colors or intensify your look with dramatic evening hues for smoky effects.

Colors include:
- All Over Base (top shade): creamy shade with a hint of shimmer
- Lid (middle left): light taupe with shimmer
- Crease (middle center): warm matte medium brown
- Highlighter (middle right): a light taupe with shimmer
- Liner (bottom shade): dark brown with some glitter


- pigmented
- easy to blend
- soft & smooth texture
- compact - easy to travel with

- colors are dupable
- for me, with the exception of the matte brown they're all too shimmery (I like to mix up my finishes)

My Thoughts: I love this palette! It's great for everyday wear and it's one palettes that offer subtle shades for day, yet you can darken it up for night. However, as mentioned, I like to mix my finishes up, so I usually have to pull out another shade (like MAC Brule) for my highlight. Minus points for inconvenience.

All in all, if you want to treat yourself with a nice palette with great quality eyeshadows, then I'd recommend checking out the Lancome Color Design Palettes. However, if you don't care for textures, then pass because a lot of their colors are dupable (especially with this palette).

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. These are really pretty colours and would be a perfect palette for traveling!
    Thanks for the review!

  2. all the shade are really pretty! I can see myself wearing those in a daily basis~ Thanks so much for sharing =)

  3. This is my favorite Lancome palette of all time - I have used it on so many people with great results - it is dupable, but it also is so much goodness in one little palette :)
