I used to have a thing for purple eye shadow and so I really wanted to love Lancome’s Spring 2011 eyeshadow quad called Cool Lavande. This is a trio of shimmery shadows, and one matte shadow in a pretty lavender colour. All the colours are wearable, and I especially like the edition of the gold because it means that you don’t have to use the purple as your main colour all the time.
But, I found all the shimmery shadows to be way too sparkly and they weren’t what I would wear during the day. Even when I wore them for a night time look, I found that the sparkles got all over my face instead of just staying on my lids.
The Cool Lavande quad has some really pretty colours, but think twice if you think you can wear this during the day.
