Known for her uniquely feminine and captivating fashion creations on the red carpet, loved by Hollywood and the public alike, L’Wren Scott is anything but ordinary. With her flawless sense of tailoring and eye for detail, her NYFW shows are always one step ahead of the trend game. Like I always say, beauty and fashion are linked. Each season they share trends, colour schemes, textures and more. So it’s not surprise that a fashion guru like L’Wren Scott is behind one of the hottest beauty collections of the entire year.
While Lancôme’s Holiday 2010 Collection by L’Wren Scott is chock full of products you’re sure to love, today I’m focusing on my two personal favourites. Recently, I’ve been neglecting my once go-to glosses for pure matte lipsticks instead. This holiday season, I’ve become an Absolu Rouge ($35) addict, wearing the emblematic burgundy red hue on my lips everywhere from work to cocktail parties.
The creamy lip colour lasts all day and the subtle shade gives the lips that gentle touch of holiday cheer, without going overboard. With SPF 12, the lip colour not only colours the lips perfectly without any need for liner, but it also keeps them hydrated and protected from UV damage which, yes, is still a cause for concern during the winter months.
Among the other fab products in the collection is the Ombre Absolue Palette Quad ($54). I’m a huge eyeshadow lover in general. I’d rather go without blush than eyeshadow. This shimmering quad is the true definition of a smoky eye (so holiday) and its long-lasting, radiant eyeshadow colours are sure to have you glowing all night long.
For your upcoming Christmas get-togethers and NYE bashes, look to Lancôme’s Holiday 2010 Collection by L’Wren Scott. It’s the perfect collection to turn to for a subtle, classic and elegant look.
