I'm so hyped up for spring, because it means that colors and florals are coming out to play, and those are some of my favourite things in the world!
“Lancôme captures the colourful wave of spring with the new collection In Love. Pop shades drawn from street-art murals and vibrant tones of nature flirting with an urban spirit. The neon glimmer of city signs with the pastel tones of balcony flowers… Springtime hues resonate in time with the pulse of the capital, while emotions stir in resounding vibrancy… Passion blossoms in all its radiant intensity. In Love tells the electrifying story of a resolutely urban breed of springtime joy. When love is lived in technicolor.”
For Spring 2013, Lancôme has released a limited edition collection, In Love, that embodies springtime with its beautiful floral motifs, lovely pastel colors and brilliant hues that come together in a manner truly befitting of Spring!
The products that are available in Singapore are:
Lancome Baume in Love – Rose Macaron, $40 SGD
Lancome Khol in Love – 20 Jade Crush, $30 SGD
Lancome Blush in Love – 20 Pommettes D’ Amour, $70 SGD
Lancome Palette in Love – Kaleidoslove, $84 SGD
Lancome Ombre in Love E/S – 10 Sugar Rose, 30 Violette Candy & 50 Pistachio Cream, $36 SGD
Lancome UV Expert in Love BB Complete SPF50 PA+++, $80 SGD
Got to swatch and try some of the products, and they are really really gorgeous! The packaging is really adorable and very different from Lancôme's usual. More flirtatious and girly, I would say?
My favourites are definitely the Khol in Love eyeliner in Jade Crush, and the Blush in Love in Pommettes D’ Amour. The Khol in Love eyeliner in Jade Crush is incredibly creamy and pigmented, and the shade of green is beautiful! The blush consists of two different shades in a intricately embossed floral motif and blends into a lovely peachy pink on the skin.
Lancome’s IN LOVE Limited Edition Spring Collection (2013) will be stocked only in a few selected locations – Takashimaya, Tangs, Robinsons Raffles City and Robinsons Centrepoint, and is available now.
If you don't already know, Lancôme is most famously known for their mascaras and whitening range (more on the whitening range in a future post), and the latest show-stopping mascara from Lancôme to be introduced in March 2013 is the Hypnose Star Waterproof Mascara, featuring the iconic Betty Boop!
Love the glittery exterior of the mascara tube, and you'd be surprised to see that the mascara wand comes in a unique shape with both a conical and a flat side: the conical side is to keep the mascara from clumping while the flat side helps to load more mascara on your lashes for an extra volumising effect!
For truly “cinema” eyes, Lancôme reveals the secret behind an ultra-glamorous fringe of lashes: the combination of an innovative brush system with two patents and a “Black Diamond” effect gliding formula to sculpt lashes precisely. What makes it so special? The association of two flat and two oblique sides. The former loads lashes instantly with mascara, applying just the right dose of texture to generously coat lashes. Endowed with longer fibres, the latter separate and lengthen lashes while fixing them in a sensual curl. Even the shortest lashes are coated: thanks to its versatile triangular shape, this all-new brush paves the way to creating made-to-measure glamour. Lashes are long, black and glossy for show-stopping eyes: intense, deep and mysterious.
Lancome Hypose Star Mascara will retail for $50 SGD, and will be available in March 2013.
PSST. The Hypnose Star Waterproof Mascara will be pre-launched at Sephora on 21st Feb and there will be a launch party at the Sephora Ion Launch Pad on 23rd Feb!
I tried out three of the products: The Khol in Love eyeliner in Jade Crush, Blush in Love and Hypnose Star Waterproof Mascara!
With my base foundation on. Lancôme Teint Miracle in Shade O-03!
And the final look. The blush really gives a very nice sun-kissed and pink glow to my cheeks!
Close up of the eye. I've stopped using falsies lately because I'm starting to find them too dramatic/unnecessary for everyday make up! The Hypnose Star Waterproof Mascara works really well to hold up the curl of my lashes, as well as give me sleek black volumised and feathery lashes that frame my eyes beautifully!
Coincidentally, both Evonne and I were wearing the same Khol in Love eyeliner in Jade Crush. Doesn't it look stunning on her?
Attended an event with Evonne and also gorgeous Jayne who happened to be in the exact same color as me! Hehe.
