A Beauty Review: Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow

Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in “It” List ($19)

A deep, matte black shadow.

Warning: this shadow is black.  Perhaps the deepest, darkest, truest black shadow I own.  Which is why I absolutely love it.

I use this shadow mainly to set my black gel eyeliner.  I always like to set my eyeliner with a similar shade shadow because it helps to soften it and look more natural, regardless of what color I use.  This shadow, compared to others, actually even seems to set my shadow better and help it to last longer than other shadows I use. 

The color is deep.  The pigmentation is amazing. It is perfectly matte.  It blends well (if you don’t start out with too much on your brush) and is the ideal black for a smokey eye.

I actually use this shadow way more than I thought I would.  Considering I haven’t found any black shadows that match the quality of this one, I’d say take the splurge!
