It has been some time since I have shown you some new Lancôme lipsticks but these came across my desk just a couple of days ago and they are so cute I couldn’t bare to withhold them. Unfortunately, the sunshine in Sydney has been lacking but even in less than impressive natural light, you can still see how shiny and lustreous these are. Today I will be showing you 3 of the 21 new shades.

My Review

As always, I will give you my thoughts on the individual colour below with the swatches, but here are my remarks on the overall line. Continue Reading

This wrap-up has been a long time coming but I wanted to make sure I could find most, if not all, the images from New York Fashion Week before I made my judgement. Well, weeks later, I think I am ready. Here are my favourites from the very recent New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011-2012 shows.

Lancôme for Chris Benz

Yellow eyeshadow is not something you can just throw on. The colour, the intensity and the pairing with other colours can make the look a complete failure, or a smashing success. Lancôme lead makeup artist, Daniel Martin, did a top job with this sunshine lid and full lip.

Official Description: The makeup muse for Chris Benz’s Spring 2012 collection was Candy Darling, a 1960’s nightclub fixture who was part of Andy Warhol’s clique. With Candy and Chris’ bright colors as inspiration, lead makeup artist Daniel Martin wanted to create fresh, clean skin with a pop of color on the eyes and lips. Daniel used shades of sea foam and mint green on the eyes and then applied black gel liner for definition. For thick jet-black lashes, he applied “tons of mascara.” A wash of tangerine blush was applied high on the cheekbones and Lancôme’s new Rouge in Love lipstick gave the models a bright pouty lip.
