Lancome Happy Holidays: Winter Collection 2013

Hey Ladies,

I hope you are all well. It's my favourite time of year and bit by bit the Holiday collections are starting to trickle onto the  makeup counters, and it is such a welcome sight! This year Lancome's Winter Collection  is inspired by the magic of a snowy scene (fingers crossed we'll have our own snowy scene soon!) the satin radiance of snowflakes and the glitter of frost set to adorn you in enchanted light.

With shades of iridescent black and glistening garland topped off with a dazzling red lip, this collection lives up to the promise of Happy Holidays! All the magic of the season seems to be captured right here in this stunning collection of elegant, chic and glistening products! Lets have a closer look, shall we?

The Hypnose Ultra Dazzling Colours are truly a thing of beauty, offering a high concentration of pigment and sparkle within a waterproof mousse like texture these are just incredible! They are easy to apply, smooth application with a great colour payoff and once they set the do not budge, fade, crease or slide. The colours I have, shown above are Emeraude Eternelle, and Saphir Noir. Black Sapphire is a pretty accurate description of this little beauty, black as coal, with a stunning silver sparkle, almost like a dark sky with stars twinkling. Just gorgeous! The Eternal Emerald is not as it appears in the pot. It transfers to the eye as an almost blackened green, this is a colour certain to make your eye colour pop! When paired with the Black Sapphire they combine to make a really fantastic, elegant night time look for the eyes!

Also on offer from Lancome are a set of 4 Christmas Decorations, containing miniature products! When opened these beautiful hanging decorations reveal a different festive treat including Rouge in Love Lipstick, Hypnose Mascara, Gloss in Love and Vernis in Love! I think these would make a fantastic gift for the makeup enthusiast in your life (even if that happens to be yourself!). They are incredibly packaged it really is a lovely idea!

 On the face: Lancome's Teint Idole Ultra 24 Foundation, and on the lips L'Absolu Rouge 132 Caprice

On the eyes: Lancome's Hypnose Ultra Dazzling Colours in Saphir Noir & Emeraude Eternelle, Hypnose Mascara, and Lancome's Art Liner in Black
