I’m all about this new Spring collection. Totally lusting over the colors. But let’s talk about the inspiration, which I think is just as important. The soft flow of tulle, the bold color of red roses, the beautiful sound of the orchestra (I’m partial to cello notes)…. all of these lovely things are characteristics used to “pay homage to timeless grace.” No better than a ballerina to epitomize gentle grace and soft demure.
It’s a pretty extensive collection with a range in colors and products. From two delightful eye palettes with pink satin notes for day and warmer violet for night, there’s a color for any eye makeup aficionado. The palettes cover every element of creating a pretty look. The eyeliners are a must for dramatic eyes… though I am wondering why they missed including a mascara. I mean, isn’t Lancôme known for their fabulous lash brushes?!
I’m having all kinds of nail parties this Spring — at least I’m planning to — so their lacquers are at the fore of beauty regiment. I’m loving the Pearl Grey the most. It’s super subtle but with a dose of sparkle. And who doesn’t love some sparkle.
Try the primer which’ll give your face a delicate and almost flawless look before you apply your makeup. I got hooked on primers last year when I tried Shiseido’s version. More on that later, though. That element of makeup application deserves its own post. It’s a chatter box topic!
Of course, no collection would be fabulously complete with some lip sticks and glosses. Rouge in Love lip sticks come in four super soft but somewhat bold colors. Mix and match them up to create more vibrant looks if you want to go that route. The softest is definitely right up the performing ballerina’s look alley. But for a date, you may want something a bit more dramatic. The matted Peony Pucker is the hue to go with, if you’re wondering. It’s gorgeous.
And, gloss lovers are going to swoon over the Gloss in Love tubes. These fancy little sticks have a fun lock feature to keep all the goodness locked up (because if you’re like me, you’ve experienced spills in your bag!). The Rose Oscar and Under the Spotlight are the best for my skin tone.
This are the things that make spring my second favorite season! The colors, the looks, the trends! They’re all so pretty and so lush.
This French Ballerine collection is currently available at all Lancome counters, nationwide. Prices range from $15-$50.
Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.
