I know it’s still the dead of winter and spring seems so far off but I swear that thinking about spring actually makes me feel warmer! As I showed you last week, Lancôme is releasing a spring-infused makeup collection focusing on one of the hottest shades predicted for spring 2011: lavender.
The ultimate feminine, 70’s-inspired colour is resurfacing this year in Lancôme’s Ultra-Lavande Collection by Aaron De Mey and it’s taking pastels to a whole new level. I am not a huge pastel fan to be honest, but lavender like this works for me.
The Butterflies Fever Blush ($48) is one of my favourites. It’s the perfect way to throw this trendy shade into the mix without overdoing it. Paired with a subtle pink and various shades of lavender, this blush is great for highlighting cheekbones and giving the contour of the face just a subtle hint of this vibrant trend. It’s so pretty.
Next on my list of faves from Lancôme’s 70’s-inspired Ultra-Lavande Collection is Le Vernis ($16) is available in Lavender and Disco Silver, both on trend for the warmer season. The lavender lacquer is an opaque one and it screams summer! If you want to embrace the trend but aren’t comfortable with wearing purple makeup, this is the perfect alternative. I absolutely love this shade and can’t wait till we get some warm weather to match it.
For the gloss gal (that’s me), you’ll absolutely love Color Fever Natural Origin Gloss ($31). It’s a sweet, slightly metallic lip colour with a high-shine finish. It’s so gorgeous. Those these are my faves and the items I find to be most versatile, the collection also includes shimmering eyeshadows, eyeliner and lipstick. Keep your eyes peeled for this new collection this coming spring.
