Lancome Launches

On Wednesday, Lancome launched their Shine Lover lipsticks (retailing at €26.00) and Belle de Teint finishing powder (A UK exclusive as well as Irish, €43.00) in Brown Thomas, where they are being sold exclusively. I got a chance to play around with the lipsticks, swatch like crazy and see them in action as head make-up artist (and single most glamourous person I've ever seen in real life) Marc Sinclair showed us how it's done.

I'm a sucker for pretty. I scream in the street if a puppy is cute enough and my ideal home is made up of 90% garden with cherry blossoms. But I also have rather discerning taste - so, when I tell you that these two products are achingly lovely, I really mean that.

The shades! Oh, the shades.

The 15 shade collection is mostly comprised of pinky tones with an additional three reds and three nudes. The consistency is between a lipstick and a gloss and is completely buildable. So, you can have a light wash of colour during the day and work it into something more dramatic when transforming your make-up into an evening look. It is also super light on the skin and hydrating with rose and anti-ageing properties. And there's none of that tacky residue that attracts irritating flyaway hairs.

Basically, it's the perfect thing for light spring and summer make-up looks to brighten up your face without weighing you down under layers of product.

The other launch, the Belle de Teint is kinda your Instagram filter in real life. It warms the complexion and blurs the look of the skin making you seem more perfect than you surely already are. The range of colours is fantastic and pretty much everyone will be able to find the right shade for them.

Bonus: How amazing does Lupita look in the promotional imagery?
