I have just invested in Lancôme Hypnôse Star Eyes Palette by Alber Elbaz, £38. Firstly I love the Alber Elbaz designs which are fun and playful and I love the blue tones and intense black which will create a sizzling smokey eye for night.
Alber Elbaz, designer of Lanvin created this limited edition makeup in colloboration with Lancôme. The collection is all about drawing attention to the eyes, Elbaz got inspiration for these designs just by looking at models eyes. He was also fascinated by the curvature of the Lancôme mascara bottles, in particular the cult classic, Hypnôse which he compared to a women's figure.
This palette is a bit different in that you can apply the eyeshadow wet or dry. For those that want long lasting colour it is recommended that you apply the shadow wet. The shadows look like fabric and do not look overally powdery.
The eyeshadow feels quite lightweight and is relatively easy to apply with the brushes in the set. Included is a brush for blending which is important to do when applying the eyeshadow. For the complete smoked look I think I would wear this shadow with a touch of black gel liner on the upper lash line with lashings of mascara. If you want bold lashes like Heidi Klum (below) then apply fake lashes.
I am overall quite happy with this palette as it is the perfect go to palette for a dramatic night time look, but that's not to say that you can't wear one of the lighter shades in the daytime. Please note that this Star Eyes Palette is limited edition so if you want to purchase it then it is advisable to get it soon.
Here are some celebrity blue eyes makeup look which you can emulate with this palette:
