Lancôme paints Paris pink for Holiday 2016 makeup collection

Nov 3, 2016

Lancôme is bringing a feminine flavor to Holiday 2016 in a makeup collection laced with joie de vivre and romance. The "Paris en Rôse" makeup line gives pride of place to pink in a host of mix-and-match shades that channel radiance and festive magic.

This is the first Holiday collection from Lancôme creative director of makeup, Lisa Eldridge. Whether shopping for a special someone or treating yourself, this first seasonal offering is designed with gift-giving in mind, with products housed in special collectors' edition packaging.

In a nod to one of Lancôme's brand signatures, Lisa Eldridge has put pink at the heart of this new Holiday collection, with shades ranging from golden to satin, and matched perfectly with browns, purples and beiges.

Soft, glowing eyes

The collection's centerpiece is the "Palette des Rêves" eyeshadow palette, packaged as a chic minaudière and finished in gold thread and bright pink ribbon. It features six eyeshadow shades to structure, brighten and illuminate eyes, with colors including beige, dark brown, copper gold, pink gold and light brown ($50).

Makeup can easily be matched to eveningwear thanks to Lancôme's "L'Ombre Hypnôse Mono" eyeshadow singles. These land in four new shimmering shades laced with golden pigments: Blanc Scintillant (white), Brun Glacé (beige brown), Rose Satin (pink) and Hôtel Particulier (dark brown) ($26).

Lancôme finishes the look with "Duo Khôl," a double-ended eye pencil with a dark shade for smoky effects and a light end for highlighting. It's available in four color combinations ($27).

Pigment-packed lips

The soft eye looks naturally lend themselves to strong lips, with the "L'Absolu Rouge" pigment-packed lip color getting three pink shades specially developed by Lisa Eldridge. There's a reddish pink, a purple pink and a fuchsia pink to choose from ($32).

Nails get glitter and shine with "Vernis in Love," where snowy white, bright beige and deep brown shades are matched with a pink glitter topcoat, called "Paris en Rôse" ($15.50).

Lancôme's Holiday offering also includes the "Cushion Highlighter," a complexion enhancer with a translucent, lightweight formula and a slightly shimmering finish for a flawless and glowing complexion ($39).
