Lancôme Hypnôse Ultra Dazzling Eyeshadows Review

Lancôme Hypnôse Ultra Dazzling Eyeshadow Swatch Black Sapphire


With Christmas behind us we still need a little sparkle in our lives, to help us make it through the last of the winter and into the glorious spring. Released with Lancôme's Christmas collection, the Hypnôse Ultra Dazzling eyeshadows are perfect little pots of sophisticated, grown-up glitter.

With a very similar texture and feel to Chanel's stunning Illusion D'Ombre mousse shadows (and just a euro in the price difference, with Lancôme's coming in a smidgeon cheaper at €27), these are really easy to work with and the perfect product for a glitzy, glamorous, one-step party eye.

I was delighted to receive Eternal Emerald and Black Sapphire to try out and, while both are lovely, it's the sophisticated midnight blue that has really captured my heart. Here it is on my mug before the work Chrimbo 'do where I really packed it on and winged it out, but it's just as lovely worn as a sheer cloud of sparkly colour on the lid.

Like the Chanel product the accompanying brush here is actually pretty decent and once it sets a little,  the waterproof and pigment packed formula stays put for hours, without smudging or budging.

Six shades are on counter now but you'd best be quick, because they're all  limited edition - are they calling your name?

The formula seems lovely and creamy, although I'm trying to be good with my money this month, but if they're still around in March, I might get one :O). Xx
