Joie de vivre

The Paris en Rôse collection preps you on how to be a très chic Parisienne this Christmas

Imagine the City of Lights, enveloped in a festive cheer. It’s a Christmas Eve night and the dazzling Parisienne makes her way out of her snugly chic apartment and into the chilly romantic streets for a discreet soirée. More resplendent than ever, her hair is nonchalantly décoiffé, her eyelids aflutter in soft tones, lips dressed in a perfectly lined fuchsia vibrancy — the typical sophistication of a born and bred mademoiselle. Inspired by the moments of a magical Parisian night, Lancôme makeup creative director Lisa Elridge concocts a complete festive kit made of feminine softness, the shimmer of a sequinned pink frock and the glitter of snowflakes. Below, meet the Paris en Rôse collection.

La Palette des Rêves
With an unmistakeable “click”, this glimmering clutch encases the smoky lumière palette of six eyeshadows made for all eyes. From browns that escalate in intensity, to beiges and rosy gold that illuminate, it’s the holiday season’s glittering palette of versatile basic shades.

The Highlighter Cushion
This is the cushion promising you skin as luminous as the case in which it nestles. Translucent and light, the formula strobes the skin in a dewy dazzling glow — naturally veiling the surface in a complexion of dazzling iridescence.

L’Absolu Rouge
A chic twist and the fete-fitting lip shade is revealed. Wherever you are, swipe on a shade of fuchsia, a purplish pink or a blushing pink to channel the glam spirit of Paris. Besides, it never hurts to have a cheery pout always at the ready for a Christmas party selfie.

The Khôl Duo
Capped in festive gold, one side illuminates while the other shades: The perfect tool to add a little light here and a little intensity there for sensual eyes. Whether you’re going for the dark, mysterious Parisienne look or for an au naturel highlight, your eyes have never been so hypnotic.

Vernis in Love
Why not go all the way and add a final touch of sparkle on the nails? Flaunt one or all three new colours — a snowy white, a lustrous beige and a brownish mauve — before polishing off with a top coat of rose gold sequins.
