Timeless red lips are a token of Parisian elegance. To celebrate this symbol of French beauty, Lancôme pays homage to it’s cult lipstick L’Absolu Rouge. The same great formula gets a new look. Limited edition cases complete with the brands distinctive rose symbol and a silhouette of the Eiffel Tower. From what I’ve seen online, all 6 shades are bold, bright and rich in colour.

Blush Rose Désir is Lancôme’s stunning new precious powder blush with two light-infused shades (orange & pink) suitable for all complexions. This product is so beautiful… both in the compact and on the skin. If you are only planning to pick up one item from this collection, I would recommend getting this blush. The orange tinted shade can be used to sculpt the cheeks and the pink shade to warm the top of the cheekbones. The all-new packaging design is reminiscent of a postcard from Paris, complete with the Eiffel Tour, roses and lipstick kisses… For perfect application, the blush comes with an exclusive, ultra-precise, double-ended brush.

Black takes on new dimension with the new Vernis in Love nail lacquers. This trio of faux-black polishes are a striking contrast to the intensity of the L’Absolu Désir Lipsticks. The formula of the Vernis in Love polishes produce an ultra glossy effect and provide a streak-free finish. Each of the three shades are rich, deep shades that are also elegant for Fall.
    Purple Fiction  (185) – intense plum
    Black Sepia (385) – brown
    Grey Lumière (485) – slate grey
Vernis in Love – $16 CDN
