Lancome Makeup Collection Spring 2011 – Ultra Lavande

I’m a big Lancome fan and it’s nice to see some traditional spring shades rather than the darker greys we’ve been seeing–I’m looking at you Dior. However, that’s a whole lotta lavander the model is wearing, it’s overkill in my humble opinion. Before I make go making a snap judgement, let’s take a look at the entire collection.

Butterflies Fever Blush ($40.00) – This is the showstopper for me–look how gorgeous it is! The purple shades in the butterflies is just overspray, but it’s still a lovely piece. From Lancome: “The new must have blush is an original twist of two incontrovertible items of the 70′s style: the bowtie and the butterfly designed by Alexis Mabille. In fashion, wearing a bowtie is the ultimate chic attitude, besides a way to express free-spirit and absolute lack of concern for what other people think. The butterfly is a multicultural symbol of free soul, feminity and beauty of nature.”

 

Lancome Ombre Magnetique ($25) Lancome says: ”

Aaron De Mey has been inspired by the stting of Chez Régine’s in Paris, a famous night club and raised to a Disco Temple known for its walls, covered with silver and gold mirrors. Ombre Magnétique is a true light catcher: your eyes twinkle like the the facets of a disco ball. You can play with these cold and warm shades, for infinite ways to highlight your gaze.”

The fusion between this innovative sprakling eye-shadow and the disco lights is ultra glamourous and captivating.”

  • Disco Gold
  • Disco Silver
  • Ultra Lavande

French Touch Absolu ($35.00) - To my eye this lipstick seems quite dark for the rest of the look, am I wrong? And it doesn’t look like the model is wearing it–I hate it when ads do that!

  • Berry Rose (Limited Edition)

Color Design Minerale Quad ($42.00)

  • Cool Lavande

  • Warm Lavande

Color Fever Gloss ($26.00) – in sharp contrast to the Berry Rose lipstick, these glosses are whisper soft shades.

  • Beige Ballerine
  • Rose Ballerine
  • Lavande Ballerine

Le Vernis ($19.00) – From Lancome: “

It is Lancôme’s most technically-advanced nail polish. Your fingertips and toes will love the boost of color and lasting shine that stays put for up to seven days. Its cutting edge, soft-sculpt brush embraces the shape of each nail for perfectly even coverage in one coat with no clumps.”

 

  • Violet Groove
  • Le 54

  1. This one isn’t calling out to me at all. I have the Surreal Violet eyeshadow quint from Estee Lauder’s Fall collection, and I think they pulled off the purple much better. I do like the berry lipstick, but I agree that it doesn’t really go with the rest of the color story. However, that may be the one item I head to the counter for!

    Thanks for the review!

  2. I think the look is great, but it isn’t for me. I would buy the Butterflies Fever Blush just because it looks so beautiful. The color fever glosses look gorgeous; I love Lancome’s glosses, so I would definitely buy the pink & beige ones.

  3. I bought the collection minus the nail polishes, the 4 color palette in warm, and the Lily Rose Lipstick and every piece is absolutely gorgeous. The colors appear far different in person than on the website. I’m overjoyed and although I thought the Berry lipstick would be too dark for my extremely fair skin, it looks beautiful. I truly recommend a looksy, not online but in the store. I think you all will be pleasantly surprised.
