To be honest, lately I really appreciate the carefully edited Lancome Makeup Collections. I love that they don’t release 65 items at once. They truly take the time to select a few key items that represent the whole vibe and aesthetic they are going for that season. And I have to say, I really, REALLY dig the whole vibe I’m getting from their French Idole Make-up Collection for Fall 2014!
The Lancome French Idole Make-up Collection for Fall 2014 pays homage to the Parisienne. You, know what I’m talking about-that independence and resolutely effortlessly chic and recognizable style of the women in Paris. We all WANT what they got: that je ne said quoi attitude of rebellious elegance and ease that’s blended with glamour. The colours of the Lancome Hypnose Palette Malachite and Amethyste($55) draw inspiration from the heart of trends seen on the streets of Paris. If we can’t be in Paris right now, we can at least LOOK like we are, right? 😛
The Lancome Hypnose Palette Malachite and Amethyste palette is inspired by the shimmering shades of malachite and amethyst channelled from men’s fashion. It’s a modern twist of fall khakis mixed with quirky purples to give it that Parisienne edge. I have to say, purples and khaki greens are a match made in fall baby!
The shades of the Lancome Hypnose Palette Malachite and Amethyste are AMAZING, hey? Quality-wise, they are your typical Lancome eyeshadows being kind of soft, yet gritty. But when you apply them to the eye, they just blend beautifully. I’m always kind of surprised at how much I love how their eyeshadows end up looking on the eye.
Whaddaya’ think? I can tell you what I think! J’adore! The shades are just so perfect for fall and so very Parisenne chic. Pair these smoky eyes with a nude, pinky lip, a simple T-shirt, leather jacket, studded bracelets, boots and Bazinga! Fall in Paris, right? Get the Lancome Hypnose Palette Malachite and Amethyste and channel the French Idole Parisienne look this fall with me!
That’s exactly going to be my fall 2014 makeup theme-Parisienne chic. I never really thought about a makeup theme for a season, but it’s such a good idea, hey? Do you centre your makeup looks around a theme?
