Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow
Quad (shades:  Optic, Tulle, Snap, Trendsetter)

I used this quad today and I was very impressed with the consistency, how well each color blended, and the pigmentation of 3 colors in the quad. The lightest color in the quad was a little disappointing however, the rest of the shades were the least of my worries. The color payoff was great, the 3 other purple shades were fabulous and very long lasting it had to of lasted over 8 hours with no budge and a little might of had to do with my handy dandy Urban Decay Primer Potion. The lightest color didn't show up at all on my eye, I couldn't even build up the color at all. (believe me I tried) The colors were absolutely stunning, I was very happy with the outcome. I was a little leery with this palette considering I don't really like to much color except purple but they have to be the right "purples" nothing to bright. I barely had to apply any eyeshadow, and I love applying less rather then packing on the product to even get the same color in the palette. I will be purchasing the full size colors. The lavender shade had a little bit of glitter to it and luckily no fall out. I applied that light lavender color onto my lid, the second to darkest matte plum purple in my crease and added the darkest matte purple in my "v".

Have you tried these colors? What do you think?


  1. These look like great neautral colors. I have the same quad but it's with darker, silvey shades.
    I can't wait to see more of your wedding plans either. Have you done much planning yet?
