Lancôme drops a limited edition Sonia Rykiel makeup collection this fall that’s all about smoky eyes

Admit it, you saw this one coming. Fashion's beloved 'queen of knitwear' and proponent of bold colours, Sonia Rykiel was bound to have a collaboration with a makeup label even if it was one that launched posthumously. Debuting the Sonia Rykiel x Lancôme collection for fall, both the French designer and French beauty house share in their love for that naturally put together je ne sais quoi look Parisian ladies seem to effortlessly master.

With a colourful lineup that includes eyeshadow palettes, blushes, nail varnishes and new, unique duo lip pencils that give a softly blurred kissable appearance — all dressed up in covetable limited edition Sonia Rykiel designed packaging — there's definitely a thing or two for every woman. And if you can't decide on what to get from the collection (whether it's one or all of them), we say the must-have takeaway is the Parisian Spirit palette loaded with cool smoky shades, a base colour and two pigmented liners that lets you create a range of intense yet wearable eye looks.
