Lancome Monsieur Big Metallic & Matte Eye Shadow Palette: Review & Swatches

This September I will be celebrating my 10th wedding anniversary (I got married young) and as I reminisce about the last several years it reminds me of all the stages our relationship has gone through.

To celebrate love (past, present and future) Lancome has released the Monsieur Big heart shaped shadow palette ($65.00). This cute compact is divided into 3 sections with different intensities to help you create the perfect look for any occasion. Each shade is also labelled so you know which color to use as a base, highlighter, liner and outer corner contour.

The “liners” are no different from the eye shadows which make them impractical for their intended purpose. They blend into the other shades on my lid and end up looking messy around the lash line.

Use Big Crush if you want to keep things cute and casual. The tones are soft, pretty and subtle – great for a first date. 

When things heat up use the Big Date Shades to accentuate and brighten. The shimmery gold, bright pink and warm bronze are flattering on all skin tones and the highlighter is a sheer, frosty overlay.

For romantic occasions the Big Night look is my favorite! The satiny garnet is super sexy and the deep burgundy is great for crease definition. The browns look very similar but one hue is deep chocolate and the other has a hint of plum - perfect for crease sculpting and accentuating.

For some reason the bottom shadows have much better color payoff  than the other sections but with a good primer and a few layers they stay in place without creasing.

When it comes to cheek color less is more and the Blush Subtil Powders ($43.00) provide a natural flush. There are 27 sophisticated shades (nothing wild or unique) with an ultra fine, silky texture that blends seamlessly. Rose Liberte (on the left) has a smooth, matte finish while Make It Pop has a hint of radiant shimmer.

Lancome is available at department store counters nationwide.
