I showed you a very quick sneak peek of the Maison Lancome blush a month or so ago. Breathtakingly intricate and beautifully done. Well, its finally out!
The Lancome Fall 2011 collection is themed 29 St. Honore and is inspired by the late 40s chic fatale trend. Neutral looks for the eyes, and a lovely red lip. I love how brands are bringing out the red lips for Fall. Its so glamorous! For Lancome, the eyeshadow palette – Les Œillades – and the blush palette – Maison Lancome – are their star products for this collection. Here’s a quick look at them 🙂
The Les Œillades eyeshadow palette is a versatile eyeshadow and brow palette because it can be used for defining your brows too. If you are like me and fret about forgetting your brow pencil when you travel, this is the palette for you. In fact, its gone off with me on my travels already. Saves me packing one extra item 😀
The palette itself is 4 varying shades of browns in different textures. This is a very safe office friendly palette but if you are adventurous, you can smoke it up or glam it up with black liner and lots of mascara on curled lashes. The two matte colours at the top are the ones you can use for the brow – Dark brown for shaping, light for contrast.

The colours are pigmented and soft, and in the main, very wearable. You will not raise eyebrows with this one, although you can draw in your brows heh…
And now, for the piece de resistance, the Maison Lancome blush!
Ah isn’t she lovely? Isn’t she wonderful… 🙂
The 3 primary colours are a pale pink, a peach and a rose. The glittery bits on the Eiffel Tower and the lamp post are overspray of course and the embossing is terribly intricate, down to the cobblestones on the street.
Here is a close up because I could not bring myself to swatch these yet. Sorry 😛 I have seen it applied by the makeup artist, and when you swirl the colours together, you get a lovely warmed pink blush for your cheeks. You can also opt to use the pink separately for an extra pop of colour. I will play with this in time, just not now as I don’t have the time and I’ll bring you swatches when I can 🙂
Does either product catch your eye? I’m guessing that Maison Lancome blush will fly off the shelves so if you want it, I suggest you hurry on down to the counters or face disappointment 🙂
