Lancôme Color Design Infinité Eye Shadow in "502 Absolute Jade": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Hey guys! Hello again, I am here to share with you my swatches and reviews for the Lancôme Color Design Infinité Eye Shadow in "502 Absolute Jade" ($29 CAD for 3.5g). This line of eyeshadow from Lancôme promises intense pigmentation and creaseless wear, to read more and see the look I did, click.......

There is a small lid underneath the cap.
What it promises:
-Blendable, buildable coverage
-Crease-free for 24 hours
-Vibrant and luminous finish

Packaging:
The eyeshadow comes in an adorable little glass jar with a twist off cap and a small plastic lid resting on top of the shadow after you twist off the cap.
Pigmentation & Application:
502 Absolute Jade is a gorgeous metallic khaki green with the most beautiful pigmentation. The formulation is one of the smoothest, most pigmented one I have ever tried. The color goes on effortlessly and blends very well and the finish is satin-y, almost foil-like!
The product is a powder but it almost feels like a moist cream during application.

Longevity:
I used this shadow without a primer and I could feel that the shadow really clings to the lids. I cannot attest to the 24 hour claim but I know this color does not wear off unless I remove it at the end of the day.
"502 Absolute Jade" swatched on bare arm, no primer used.
Here is a simple look I did using only the shadow (no primer) and some brown gel liner from Maybelline. Notice how nicely the shadow blends!
Availability:
The Lancôme Color Design Infinité Eye Shadow are available at Sephora and other department stores.

Pros:
-Buttery smooth texture
-Amazing pigmentation
-Creaseless wear
-No fading/no primer needed
-Blends beautifully
-Quality packaging

Cons:
-Pricy compared to similar product offered by L'Oréal (Lancôme is in fact owned by L'Oréal); however, the packaging of Color Design Infinité is superior

Overall:
This is one heck of an amazing shadow and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for good pigmentation and lasting wear!
