Here are the swatches of the Lancôme Les Gris L'Wren palette as promised. I have also included a look I did using the eyeshadows.
The highlighter shade is very sheer with little sparkles. There isn't a huge colour payoff but for me that is just fine, I find I can't pull off pigmented, frosty silver shades. The lighter grey is quite blue toned and I'd describe this as a satin finish. The darker grey is a lovely shimmery gunmetal colour and has a nice soft texture. The black is a matte finish. I find the shadows work best over a base, you can either use a pencil as Aaron recommended or a cream base. For the look I did below I used MUFE aqua cream in 02.
I applied the MUFE Aqua Creme in 02 all over the mobile lid. I used the eyeshadows from the quad in a sort of gradient fashion. I have the gunmetal and a little of the black on the mobile lid. I blended the line at the crease with the lighter grey and then the highlighter shade. I used Rouge Bunny Rouge lacquer liner to tightline and also to line above the lashes.
In these photos I'm wearing Teint Miracle foundation and I used RMK Super basic liquid concealer under the eyes. I used Becca Beach Tint in Fig on my cheeks and Rose Lanolips on my lips. I also used a small amount of the balm as highlighter on the tops of my cheeks. I went back though and added some MAC Dame blusher and I think I added something else on my lips but it escapes me now! Here's what it looked like with the additions.
As ever, I wish I had gone a little higher with the eyeshadow as once I open my eyes the eyeshadow disappears! In future I will use black as a base too. The eyeshadows seem a little sheer and I can see some lighter areas peeping through. Black liner as a base would definitely intensify the smoky look. I will be having a go at a glossy eye as described by Aaron. I will have to wait till the weekend though as I fear it might not be school run appropriate! I really like the palette. I have tended to steer clear of greys before as I find some shades don't work well on my colouring but the undertones make these very wearable.
Disclosure: the palette was given to me without charge for consideration for review.
