After headlining Lancôme's Fall 2009 "Declaring Indigo" campaign, Daria Werbowy returns to front the "French Coquettes" collection with another spokesmodel Elettra Wiedemann. While "Declaring Indigo" was inspired by the French Revolution, Make-up Artistic Director Aaron de Mey chose the period of 1970-1920, a later time in French history.
Both models portray different personas; Daria represents a "light and delicate style," while Elettra is a slightly darker character.
I have mentioned prior that Aaron de Mey is my favorite makeup artist, apart from the late Kevyn Aucoin. "French Coquettes" marks his 4th color collection that captures the spirit of the modern woman at the start of the 20th century with signature hallmarks of French glamour.
La Rose Déco
La Rose Déco is an all-over powder that gives a subtle shine; a new mix between shaded tones of rose wood and a touch of pink glow.
Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Quad - French Touch
Ombre Magnétique - Black Macadam, Uban Silver & Cherry Cherie
Inspired by minerals and their infinite nuances of iridescent light, this product is the new generation of ultra sparkling eye shadows. It opens a new horizon of light-catching colors and twinkling effects. The innovative texture is extremely long-wearing due to the type of polymers used. It is also easy to apply and doesn’t crease. The amount of mother-of-pearl makes the colors more intense than ever.
L'Absolu Rouge - Rose Divine, Parisian Attraction & Cherry Kiki
Absolutely Voluptuous Lips. Pamper your lips with this creamy and luscious formula. Lancôme brings Pro-Xylane™ SPF 12 Sunscreen; its complete and powerful replenishing molecule, to a lip color for visibly fuller and smoother lips.
Le Vernis Trio - Kissed By Paris
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.
Aaron De Mey has developed three new miniature Le Vernis shades that will keep nails flexible, shiny and more resistant to shock and abrasion. Chip-free for days!
The collection is currently available on lancome-usa.com, with the exception for the Ombre Magnétique, which is scheduled to launch in August☆
Has any product caught your eye yet? I'm pretty intrigued with the sparkling mineral eyeshadow. According to de Mey, he recommends blending Ombre Magnétique in Black Macadam on the outer "v" of the eyes, while concentrating the Urban Silver shade on the inner corner. Blend the two hues into one another with your finger or a shadow brush for a smokey effect.
Hopefully the glitter doesn't land all over the face like what the disastrous Urban Decay eyeshadows did to me! Utter chaos I tell you (lol)
