Lancôme asked their favorite fashion and beauty bloggers to create 20 short films inspired by the colors of their Color Design 5 Pan palettes. My normal eye makeup application consists of a swipe of a neutral color over my lid so I was a bit scared off when I was asked to test out one Lancôme’s Color Design 5 Pan palette in JADE FEVER. I visited a Lancôme counter at a department store and Nancy, the saleswoman at the counter, happily showed me how to apply the five shades in the palette. She walked me through each step: (1) all over application; (2) lid; (3) crease; (4) highlighter; and (5) liner. Depending on how you contour, sculpt and shade you can get a soft look for day or intensify your look with a smoldering smokey eye for night. Fortunately, the palette comes with a handy step-by-step how to cheat sheet detailing how to create both day and night looks so I always have a reference whenever I want to apply the makeup.
Lancôme’s House of Color palettes comes in twelve different color options and I was happy to receive the palette in Jade Fever. When I first saw the Jade Fever palette I immediately thought of camouflage which I thought fitting since makeup is a bit like my armor. I arm myself for the day before going out into my urban stomping grounds including Chinatown and downtown San Francisco. Upon further reflection, the vibrant greens also made me think of natural, lush surroundings of San Francisco, and specifically, the tranquility of the Japanese Tea Garden.
After a long day in San Francisco, I was amazed at how my eyeshadow stayed on. Normally, whatever remnants of eyeshadow I manage to put on are in a greasy crease on my eyelid but not so with the Jade Fever palette. The color lasted for more than eight hours and really brightened my eyes. So much so that I think I want to purchase the palette in other colors – my only problem is that there are so many great options it’s hard to choose just one.
