Lancôme La Base Paupières Pro [long wearing eyeshadow base] ; review, photos and swatches

On the 1st of April Lancôme launched a series of eye makeup to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Hypnôse mascaras. Part of which was this brand new product, the eye primer.

Incidentally, the last couple of months I happened to be on the lookout for an eye priming base when this little thing landed in my hands! So thank you Lancôme for the lovely gifts :-) they definitely came at the right time!

If I guessed right, you probably are wondering, is an eye primer essential? Well, eye primers are used to intensify the colours and help eyeshadow stick to the eyelids better, giving longer wear and also stop the shadow from creasing and migrating. So yes! it’s something which everyone should invest in!

The Lancôme eyeshadow base comes in two colours.

01-Beige Rosé – beige toned

03- Rose Tendresse – peach toned

It is a creamy waterproof formula, which evens and illuminates eyelids to create a bare skin effect, guaranteeing a more intense and long lasting make-up result (up to 16 hours)

I received the colour 01 Beige Rosé. Which is a good colour match for my eyelids and gave a nice natural effect.

As you can see, the primer comes in a weighty glass jar type packaging with a screw on lid. I really love this type of packaging as it looks lovely on any vanity ;-) Tube type packaging lacks that luxe factor and I am always a sucker for something that’s packaged beautifully.

Application method

I applied this after I used an eye cream. I feel it goes on smoother than when applied alone and my choice of tool was a concealer brush of synthetic bristles. Although I believe fingers work just fine as well.

The product itself is a very thin cream with an emollient feel to it, like lip balm. And though it has a colour, once spread out on the lids it pretty much disappears, leaving a glimmering base to work with.

*Also worth noting, the shimmer in the base did not alter the finish of matte eyeshadows.

And here is an eye look I created using the Lancôme La Base Paupières Pro as a base.

As you can see, the baby pink eyeshadow looks beautiful and vivid without disappearing onto my lid and the primer helps it stick on well without moving around.

 

 Final thoughts

Although I can’t attest to the 16 hour claim, I can say that it did last all day on me. Also, my eyeshadow hadn’t creased and still looked great with no fading.

Price point wise I believe it’s value for money as it only costs $33. Which is a steal!
