Lancome’s Fall 2010 Collection, French Coquettes, is all about French glamour and features a palette of deep plums, shimmering charcoals and sophisticated nudes. They’ve outdone themselves with the campaign images featuring Lancôme spokesmodels Daria Werbowy and Elettra Wiedemann. It actually makes me want to run out and buy everything just so I can create that look (Daria especially, on left.) French Coquettes features several star products, so Lancome fans are in for a treat.
First we have a gorgeous multi-color powder compact, La Rose Deco, that really tugs at my rose-obsessed heart strings. Isn’t it beautiful? The shimmer is overspray, but there is a visible rose pattern and the color beneath is a lovely mix of rose and pink.
Perhaps the most coveted item is the Ombre Magnétique, a gel-like shimmery eye shadow and the key to the looks seen on Daria and Elettra. Shown above is the shade Urban Silver, but we’ll also see two others: Cherry Chérie and Black Macadam. This won’t be available until August 15 and I’m dying to see what this looks like on my lids. I do believe counters are taking pre-orders and have the displays out. Go check it!
Lancome also released a new Color Design Quad in French Touch. I’m digging the special packaging, but I’m not sure if the colors are unique enough for $42. Honestly, I’m just a little hung up on the Ombre Magnétique!
You’ll also find a trio of mini polishes in Kissed by Paris. Pretty and chic!
You can see the collection in full online at Lancome. My advice? Get on the Obmre Magnétique. I think this is one of those products that you’ll kick yourself for missing out on. I know I’ve been burned many times in that game.
