Here I go down the rabbit hole with Lancôme! Desert Rose blush, Beach Gem Artliner Waterproof, Crazy Yuku Juicy Tube and Sarong Le Vernis swatches!

After my Luminato and Lancôme post the other day I went to work tracking down a picture of the makeup look - since I really wanted to know what the makeup was going to look like so I knew you would too and luckily Lancôme was kind enough to provide me with Lorna Spiga's official beauty sketch.

As mentioned previously - the centerpieces of the look are Desert Rose Blush and Juicy Tubes Awakening of Love Lip Gloss from the Summer 2011 Bronze Azure collection - and I'm sure you can imagine how much I love the pink!

And even though I don't even pretend to have the talent Lorna does, I was still excited to try these and other products from the summer collection so please enjoy the swatches!

If you want to check out the original Luminato post and get info about all the Lancôme events - you can go here!





The products are all so pretty, it's hard to choose a favourite!
Desert Rose Blush - of course I love the compact and was loath to "ruin" it and use it but I sucked it up just for you guys!  It has subtle shimmer and subtle colour - I really had to get my brush into the darker pink section for the colour to show.  I also had to make sure I picked up the same colour each time or the sides of my face looked different! Oh and the gold colour makes a great eye shimmer! (Wanna win one: check out our contest here!)
Artliner Waterproof in Beach Gem is a gorgeous shimmering blue - please note that I would not normally slap on this thick a line but when I put it on normally, it didn't give you a good enough idea of the colour!  Please also excuse the spider lashes, I was trying out a new mascara at the same time and forgot that I hadn't combed it through!
Juicy Tubes Awakening of Love in Crazy Yuku - a bit of colour, a bit of sparkle and a lot of shine!
Le Vernis in Sarong - beautifully shimmering coral!

Is anything from the collection tempting you now?

  5. That blue liner is mesmerizing ! Love it !

    Totally off topic, but do you happen to know why Neutrogena won't sell their makeup line in Canada ? Any hope for the future ?

    Thanks ! Bisous :)

  6. I've always assumed it's because Neutrogena hates Canadians but that's probably not true (I'm just kidding Neutrogena, jeez) - let me see if I can find out for you!

  7. Looks like their are no immediate plans for expansion into Canada - they have promised to keep me updated so we should just go with my original theory... ;-)

  11. I want to try the artliner - we just posted about the Makeup Forever aqua liners - how do they compare?

  12. I have the similar colour in the MUFE aqua liner but it just doesn't seem to have the same amount of shimmer - great idea though, I should do a comparison post!
