Lancome Longwear Eyeshadow Base


One is not amused & I could kick myself! You know those moments where you really want a product but instead of getting the brand & product you want you get something elsewhere which costs more & was pap – yep that’s what happened here sigh.

Last summer I wanted to pick up the MAC painterly paint pot but I didn’t get round to buying it until some time later instead whilst I was on holiday I thought I would pick up the Lancome equivalent in beige porcelain for £5 more, why who knows but the colour & tone looked lovely.


The problem I have with this is it really doesn’t blend well on my eyelids it breaks up as you try & blend it, it looks like a hot mess. It doesn’t work well for me as a base for shadows it is horrible.


The problem I have is that even if I sanitised it & put it in my pro makeup kit I cannot guarantee it will work on others & I stick to a rule that I will only use products on people that I would use on myself.

I definitely need to be more careful when I buy products now as I wasted over £20, of course I have written it off as a life lesson but it’s definitely annoying. I think it is safe to say I personally wouldn’t recommend it but then again everyone has different types of skin etc so this may work great for others but as a side note my eyelids tend to be a little oily in case that helps with any decision making.

Hope you liked the post guys, much love xx

  1. Thanks for this review and warning. I’ve read negative reviews for both this one and the Estee Lauder eye shadow base. I guess I’ll stick with my MAC Paint Pots!

    1. MAC is such a better price in comparison I am just shocked at the opposite in quality I would have expected Lancome to be amazing. That’s interesting to know about Estee Lauder too I will stay clear of them x

    1. I thought it was just me so glad I wasn’t going mad I assumed it didn’t agree with slightly oily eyelids, so disappointing I am never straying from MAC paint pots again x

Please feel free to comment :-) x
