I realised that Lancome seems to have been quite quiet about their Christmas or Holiday collection. I’ve read all the various news from abroad but locally, I had not seen any. Well, wait no longer because here are the Holiday releases from the Lancome C’est Magnifique Holiday 2008 collection! Call me crazy but I’m really digging these and I’m not usually a Lancome fan!
The look is old Hollywood glam so red lips and defined eyes are the way to go. I’m particularly liking the deep blue that forms the backdrop the model is against and those red lips! This is a look I personally like. 🙂
New in this collection are:-
- Color Focus Palette in Blue Enigma (RM135) I’ve only just discovered the Color Focus palettes not long ago and I’m itching to check these out. Colours are deep navy blue, deep violet, Smoky gray and pure white. From the picture I thought it was a brown at the bottom but its actually a smoky gray. I’m not sure if thre is any shimmer in this palette. I would love it if the white was a shimmery tone. I’m not sure about that violet but I’m game to check this one out.
- Juicy Tubes in Sparkling Ava and Red Gilda (RM68) I’m not a fan of lip glosses but that red one is calling my name! I rather think the packaging looks classier than the usual juicy tubes packaging.
- Diva Magic Powder in Platinum White (RM150) This is a tub of pure white shimmer to illuminate the face and décolleté area. I have personally seen this powder in action for my sister’s wedding reception makeup and it is an AMAZING product! The shimmer is fine so you don’t get chunks of glitter on your face, but yet when it catches the light, it gives off a gorgeous illuminating effect that is simply wow! One for the parties and special events – dust it all over and bask in the fairy lights!
It would appear that the Lancome C’est Magnifique collection we are getting here is a little different from the collection that has been released in the USA. I always find this rather strange but perhaps its to do with suiting the market and requirements of the people in the different parts of the world. We seem to be getting the Europe release of Lancome. Here’s an example of Lancome’s Color Focus quad for Holidays 2008 that has no bearing on the one we are seeing here – Link. Personally, I prefer ours 🙂
I believe the Lancome C’est Magnifique collection is released in stores this week so now might be a good time to traipse down to the counter and check things out for myself.
