Lancome Colour Dose

Update Tuesday, March 13, 2012.

After 4 some years, I finally got some swatches for 2 of the Lancome Colour Dose below -.-': Flamingo Coast and Bungalow Berry.

From left to right: Blue Hawaii, Spice Islands, Montego Beige (will review these 3 very soon), and Flamingo Coast. Pictures taken in natural light without flash.

Bungalow Berry

Original post Saturday, March 1, 2008

My second venture into cream eye shadows, after Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour. These Lancome Colour Doses are pretty decent, not as creamy and blendable as Laura Mercier's, but they have surprising staying power - they didn't budge all day for me and made a fantastic base! Too bad only a few colors work with my skin tone, and well, they're discontinued anyway...

Anyhooooo, what's with me and discontinued stuff? Everything I like gets discontinued, what's up with that?? I have several colors, but have only used 3. The others aren't even opened! I'm a slow poke, I know. My sister wonders if I ever use all the stuff I own, and I do...the majority of it.

- Bermuda Sunrise: a neutral nude beige, read so many good reviews on this one, but sadly it's a dud for me. I had high hopes for it, but it turns out so frosty it magnifies every single line and pore wherever I put it on, making me look like I'm 100! Yuck! Hate it!

All pictures taken indoor with flash unless otherwise noted.

- Flamingo Coast: A pearly powder pink that's just a touch too opaque for a base. I like my base with a tad more translucency.

- Bungalow Berry: more of a violet than a berry with gold shimmers. This is actually an unexpected hit. I would have never thought it'd work for me, but it did, and it did so wonderfully I was amaze of what I could do with it. Have you ever seen a smoky eyes done with violet? Yah, this is the shade for it.
