Lancome has launched a limited-edition, pink, heart-shaped Monsieur Big eyeshadow palette which has 12 metallic & matte eyeshadows in rosy, nude, and chocolate hues mean endless eye shadow looks from nude to intense. With a very beautiful and eye-catching packaging in hot pink colour and the shades are divided into 3 zones with 4 shades each, not that you can not use one shade from one zone and other from a different zone, just that it is great for a beginner to refer and definitely a keeper for a makeup professional. The palette is curated by makeup artist Lisa Eldridge.

With no limit to creativity, many eye looks can be created from this eyeshadow palette. The shades of this new eyeshadow palette are highly pigmented, long-wear, and crease-resistant. The formula is very creamy and smooth, applies and blends easily.

For each of the three eyeshadow range, they can be applied:
• Apply the base all over the eyelid
• Apply the corner eyeshadow shade in your outer-corner to intensify the look
• Bring highlight to your look with the highlighter eyeshadow shade on the inner corner and the center of your lid.
• Apply the liner eyeshadow shade on your eye shape contour to structure your eye
• Finally, apply a few coats of our best volumizing mascara, Monsieur Big Mascara, on your lashes

The formula is very pigmented, especially the metallic eyeshadows are very buttery as compared to matte’s which is normal for a matte eyeshadow. The formula blends easily and is buildable to the needed intensity and looks. They did not crease on my eyelids for a few hours without any eye primer. I find the three compartments very helpful when using and creating an eye look and you might agree with me. And coming to the packaging, it is a delight to eyes and can definitely be a great gift idea for anyone loving pink and red hues and want to be creative.

Lancome Monsieur Big Eyeshadow Palette is available at Sephora, Nordstrom Canada, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Lancome.ca

I bought this serum during pregnancy to fade my acne scars and after a lot of research, found this safe to use during pregnancy. I have used this serum during my pregnancy and after it too. This is a nice serum and suited well with my combination acne prone skin. The texture of the serum is light and silky. This serum can be used during day and night. I used this serum for about 3 months on and off during day time. The results were quick and my skin started looking more even and radiant within the first week of using this.  I also think that it has helped my skin to fade acne scars to some extent.

The scent of this serum is heavy but i liked it. I have used this serum with and without makeup and the results in both cases were good. The skin was nice, even and looked bright. This acted as a good primer on the makeup days. I noticed improvement in the texture of my skin and the size of the pores with this serum. The serum blends very well and it absorbed into my skin fairly quickly. So, I did not have to wait to apply my moisturizer. I used 1-1/2 pump of the product after toning and before moisturizing my skin.

Overall, this is a nice serum for my type of skin. I am not planning to repurchase this soon as i have lot of other serums i love and few that i want to try.

Have you tried this serum or planning to try this?
