Swatched: Lancome quotGolden Frenzyquot Palette

5 years ago

Hi everyone! A couple months ago I decided to splurge on my first Lancome palette, and I picked "Golden Frenzy" after seeing Holly Ann-Aeree say this was her favorite of all the Lancome palettes she owned.

<strong>Price & Availability</strong>
- $49
- Available where Lancome products are sold

<strong>Shades & Finishes</strong>
- Comes with five shades:
» all over base: shimmer white
» lid: metallic gold
» crease: matte medium brown
» highlight: metallic/glittery gold taupe
» liner: matte black

- Sleek black plastic
- Fingerprints like crazy
- Has Lancome logo in the lower right corner
- Comes with two sponge tip applicators

- Sleek, slim packaging
- Wearable colors
- Nicely pigmented
- Blend well
- Last several hours over primer

- Case picks up finger prints
- Colors are wearable but not unique
- The highlight shade is not what I would use for a highlight; and it also has some fallout

- Expensive

I initially I was really excited to receive this palette because it was my first Lancome palette, and it was probably the most I had ever spent for a 5-shadow palette.

In the end I was disappointed. The quality is great and everything but the colors are really not unique and I don`t think the entire thing warrants the almost $50 price tag.

<em>Granted, I have this mentality about certain things: I`m not willing to pay an arm and a leg for shades I won`t wear, but if the colors are too simple, why not find a cheaper alternative?</em>

I think if you find a color combination that really speaks to you then this may be worth the splurge. However, I couldn`t justify spending $50 for shades that I could find from other brands for much cheaper.

Thanks for reading. Have you ever tried a Lancome palette?
