Celebrate the ’60s – Lancome style
It’s the start of the 1960s, and a wave of free-thinking surges through France… Pop Art shakes up the artistic landscape, the Nouvelle Vague breaks with cinematic tradition, Serge Gainsbourg revolutionises music, free-spirited girls twist on the dance floor, and no designer creation is complete without a miniskirt…oh, and Brigitte Bardot is the Bombshell du jour….
And we think she would have loved the new Lancome O My Rose! Collection, by Artistic Make-Up Director, Aaron De Mey. Encapsulating the energy and retro style of the 1960s, from sensual coral to deep aqua green, a breath of fresh air enlivens the Spring collection.
The stand-out products are the gorgeous Pop’n’Cheeks (£32) and the quite simply, fab, Pop’n’Palette (£31). The Pop’n’Cheeks is a fresh-glow blush that is designed to suit every skin tone, and it an also be applied to the eyes.
However, if it’s eye power you want, then invest in thePop’n’Palette, and intense eye colour quad, presented in a customised polka dot case, in homage to Pop Art.It comes in two colour harmonies – Pop’n’Petrol to create those classic 1960s smoky dark eyes with a green twist, and Pop’n’Copper , for sparkling eyes.
Other items in the collection include B.B Kiss lipsticks (£22), Kohl Gloss eye pencils (£18), Ink Artliner in Teal (£18), Hypnose Drama mascara in limited edition Aqua Green (£19.50) as well as many more. Available at Lancome counters nationwide, from January 15. www.lancome.co.uk
