Taupe Craze: A Video for Lancome

I recently got the chance to participate in a very cool project. To celebrate the launch of their new (permanent!) Color Design eyeshadow quints (swatched here), Lancome asked 20 bloggers to each make a video about one of the quints — two bloggers per palette. I already thought these palettes were pretty great, so I was delighted to contribute.

Though we were given the same basic set of guidelines, we each worked independently, so I’m amused to see how different the videos are (they’re being released, one per day). Here’s mine (guess which palette I picked):

You already know neutral shadows are my favorite, and taupe is everywhere (rocks, weathered wood fences, architectural metal). I had a great time roaming around Dallas discovering non-makeup examples of the colors in this palette. (Purple is not taupe, but it is complimentary.)

The Color Design palettes (including Taupe Craze) are $48, available at Lancome-usa.com and everywhere Lancome is sold.

Here are the other videos (I’ll continue to update these as they go live):
What I Wore: Pink Envy

M.I.S.S.: Jade Fever

College Fashion: Mauve Cherie

Style Observer: Bronze Amour

Nitrolicious: Midnight Rush

Dramatis Personae: Sienna Sultry

Beauty Sweet Spot: Amethyst Glam

My It Things: Midnight Rush

Lancome provided the palette I used, and I was compensated for making this video.

    KarlaSugar, I don’t know if you remember, but a while ago on MUA we communicated and I told you the hand that swatched the makeup would be the hand that ruled the world. My prophesy is coming true . . . soon everyone will acknowledge your swatch-y greatness :) !
