Lancôme Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Sienna Sultry

As I've mentioned many times before, I'm a huge fan of neutral shadow palettes - they're just so easy to grab and use in the morning without much thought. Lancôme's Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Sienna Sultry* ($55 CAD/4g) is a nice twist on the standard neutral palette, as it includes 2 pink shades. I do consider pink a neutral and a very wearable shadow shade, it's actually one of my favourite colours to wear!

"Lancôme’s new versatile, all-in-one palette conveniently creates a full eye look for day or night.

Experience the newest generation of luminosity as silky lustrous powders transparently wrap the skin, allowing a seamless layering of pure color for a silky sheen and radiant finish.

Build with absolute precision and apply the shades in 5 simple steps (all over, lid, crease, highlighter and liner) to design your customized eye look. Contour, sculpt and lift in soft day colors or intensify with dramatic evening hues for smoldering smoky effects.

Long wear, 8-hour formula. Color does not fade, continues to stay true." - Lancôme

Lancôme's Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palettes come in sleek black packaging with two small brushes and a large mirror. Sienna Sultry includes a matte soft beige, baby pink shimmer, matte soft taupe brown, soft golden copper shimmer, and a chocolate golden brown shimmer liner. The top colour is meant to be an all over lid shade, and it is a pinky beige. You can use this for a subtle matte brow bone highlight as well. The shimmery pink shade is beautiful, and I love wearing it all over the lid. The middle taupe shade is perfect for popping in the crease and to help transition from colour to colour. The gold shadow is meant to be a highlight, but I think that it's a bit too pigmented for that purpose. I love using it as a shadow, and I think that it looks great on the inner third of the eye. The bottom shade is meant to be used as a liner, but I've also worn it in the crease. This shade reminds me of NARS' Galapagos, since it's a deep brown with beautiful golden shimmer. This shade is very pigmented, so you only need the tiniest amount.

The pigmentation of all of the shadows is great, and the formula is creamy and easy to apply. The colours blend beautifully together, and I love that I can create a natural eye for day, or vamp it up for a night look. On my eyes, I can get about 8 hours of wear when worn on bare lids, and about 12 hours of wear when used with a primer or cream shadow base. Impressive!

I'm incredibly impressed with the quality of these shadows, way to go Lancôme! With 5 shades in this palette, I'm not overwhelmed with choice in the morning, and the small size also makes this palette great to travel with. If you love a good neutral palette, I definitely think that this one is worth checking out. Have you tried any of Lancôme's shadows before? What's your favourite neutral palette?
