Like it was made for shaking our collective January blues, Lancôme has just announced its latest Lancôme ‘In Love’ limited edition collection for next season.
It’s hot, vibrant, and has even brought out the feminine side of campaign star Emma Watson. And that’s no mean feat. The girlish offering is super bright (think turquoise Kohl, £16, and hot red Vernis, £12), getting us in the mood for Spring. It’s finished off with a Dewy Mist, £22, to stop make-up sliding south as the weather warms up (here’s hoping), and the lip colour is a Spring-ready balm.
Plus (blush-phobes, rejoice) The Blush, £34, combines cool pink with warm coral in two neat boxes, so you can blend to your little hearts’ content. It is a much safer way to take your maiden steps in cheek colour (trust me, I was there once, too). Find your apples and go for a hot pink pop, or blend up your cheekbones to sit with your natural skin tone.
The ‘In Love’ Spring/Summer 13 collection will be on sale from 2nd January – the perfect antidote to post-Christmas blues. If this is a sign of things to come in the new year, bring on 2013!
