Lancôme - Partner In Crime Color Design Eye Shadow

I came, I swatched, I bought.

This was an impulse purchase. I was at my local Ulta (how many misdeed stories start like this?) where they have a full Lancôme counter when this Color Design single eye shadow, Partner In Crime,  twinkled at me. The color, a slightly grayed out antique gold kind of thing with a shimmering metallic finish looked unique enough to be swtached. I was thrilled to see that it's the new and improved Lancôme formula, that's smoother and more buttery than ever before.

The color of Partner In Crime is even more interesting when applied. It's not dramatic, but it definitely attracts attention to the luminous not-too-light/not-too-dark shade. It's also long-wearing as long as you're not an eye rubber, and even more important: the color stays true throughout the day (I do use a primer). Application is easy (you can pack it on or sheer it out), and thanks to the smooth and almost creamy formula there's no shimmery debris falling on the cheeks (I'm guessing this also depends on the brush).

Bottom Line: Yes.

Lancôme - Partner In Crime Color Design Eye Shadow ($20, made in Canada) is available at the counters, Sephora, select Ulta locations, and Lancome.com.

  1. Oh my goodness yes! What a gorgeous color! I bet that's gorgeous with a coco brown or olive green liner.

  2. the colour is quite pretty, but I love more your Magie Noire collection.

    1. MJ,
      I know! Just look at those Magie Noire bottles. *Drooling* O_o

  3. Hi Gaia, I love your blog and visit ever so often. But this time, the eye shadow color just caught my attention immediately! But my eyes were beholden with what I saw in the photo image, I was so giddy and surprised to see the Magie Noire perfumes you own!! So can you please let me know where some of your MN perfumes were purchased? I've been looking around for reliable sources, but I never go through with the purchase because I'm always afraid that it might be a "fake" and that would break my heart. I do not like what they did with the "new" Magie Noire bottle, and it seems one can only purchase it at Lancome website. Thanks a million!!
