Lancôme X Alber Elbaz’s Limited-Edition Beauty Line

July 1, 2013 by


Four of Lancôme best-selling mascaras and eye palettes just got a makeover, courtesy of Alber Elbaz, artistic director for the powerhouse Parisian line Lanvin. It’s called the Lancôme Show, and it’s certainly a beautiful feast for both the eyes and face.

In addition to the exquisite packaging of the eye palettes, the mascaras are also imaginatively designed, and there’s a wonderfully playful—yet still chic—feel to all of the products. “The real theme running through the collection is eyes,” Alber explains. “And round forms. The bottles are so fabulously rounded that they were my inspiration. I wanted to create shapes with a hint of humor.”

We seriously want them all.

1. Lancôme Show Color Design 5 Shadow and Liner Palette in Rose Coquette, $29

Lancôme’s 5 Shadow and Liner Palettes are bestsellers for a reason. They contain everything you need for fabulous eye—liner, highlighter, crease and lid color, and an all over, eye-brightening shade. This Rose Coquette compact is perfect for creating a playful pink look for day, or a smoky brown hue with a hint of rose for evening.

2. Lancôme Show HYPNÔSE Doll Lashes Mascara, $29

If you’re looking to create an innocent, doe-eyed effect, try HYPNÔSE Doll Lashes mascara. The cone-shaped brush lifts, extends and defines each lash, leaving you with a sweet, flirty and beautiful Betty-Boop look.

3. Lancôme Show DÉFINICILS High Definition Mascara, $29

DÉFINICILS is all about length. The mascara’s applicator is designed with specially grooved bristles to separate and define each lash from root to tip, as well as create even, smooth coats that lengthen and outline with ease. And just look at those peepers on this limited-edition tube—does it get any cuter?

4. Lancôme Show HYPNÔSE Drama Mascara, $29

Get dramatic volume and body with this mascara, thanks to a convex brush which is designed to coat each lash to the max—without smudging or clumping. And the polka-dot print is just too much; incredibly adorable and classic at the same time.

5. Lancôme Show Color Design 5 Shadow and Liner Palette in Mint Jolie, $29

Emerald shades are in this summer—bring them out in your eyes with this soft green palette. And there are those pretty, printed peepers again! Use the DÉFINICILS mascara to compliment your misty, mint look.

6. Lancôme Show Color Design 5 Shadow and Liner Palette in Taupe Craze, $29

Tap into the smoky brown eye, one of this summer’s hottest trends, with this Taupe Craze palette. And the matching print mascara will add some serious drama for a fun, sexy night out on the town.
