Lancôme are kicking ass this Christmas time! We've taken a look at their advent calendar and crackers - the very height of luxury and sophistimication - and today, beaut.ies, feast yis're eyes on the absolute gorgeousness of the Happy Holidays collection.
A vision of stunningly beautiful metallics and sequins and garnet and gold, this collection is a triumph and if you're anything like me, you'll want every piece.
LOOK AT THE PACKAGING ON THESE! In their glittering golden cases and with three twinkling and super flattering shades, these textured Ombre Hypnose Mono shades are to die for. Pure golden pigments are combined with a soft creamy formula in three colourways: Fil D'Or, Fil D'Argent and Fil Bronze.
The shade I have, Fil D'Argent, is a beautiful shimmering golden taupe, that would work on any skintone. These are €25 and oh-so-perfect for pressies and/or for a lil' self-gifting too.
I haven't clapped eyes on these babies in the flesh but OMG I want to, badly. These Ombre Les Pailettes aux Yeux, €24.50, are dotey little jars of loose shimmer powder that you apply directly to lids. As a massive fan of grown up glitter - especially for the festive season - these are top of my Christmas Wish List!
Nails get a sprinkling of Christmas magic too with three new shades of Vernis in Love: Ginger Swing, pictured, is a gorgeous gold with teeny silver particles, and there's also a champagne and a red shade in the collection. €18's the damage here. Three new shades of L'Absolu Rouge lipstick, €25.41, and two metallic eye pencils, €17.28, round out the collection.
Everything lands at your nearest Lancôme counter on November 1st - is there anything catching your makeup lovin' eye?
