If you are heading into Brown Thomas in Dublin, Limerick, Cork or Galway this month, you might want to have an aul gander at the Lancôme counter.
They want to brighten up the Summer with the launch of their limited edition colour range of Liner Design (gel liner) and Colour Design Infinité (eyeshadows). And these babies will be exclusive to Brown Thomas.
Colour Design Infinité is a creamy-powder eyeshadow that delivers a pigmented punch. It has a silky texture that just glides on the eyelid without any pulling or dragging. But don't let this gentle approach fool you - this stuff is longwear and it simply does. not. budge.
It has a pearl finish that gives a luminosity to the eye area, and you can build it from a light wash to an intense pop of colour. It comes in six shades:
- Eternal Gold (101)
- Timeless Taupe (102)
- Always Fuchsia (301)
- Vibrant Violet (302)
- Endless Purple (303)
- Electrifying Sparkle (503)
I swatched the Timeless Taupe option and the lightest sweep of colour gave a deep, shimmering gold/taupe shade - the pigment pay off in this is just gorgeous. And it would want to be, as a little pot of Colour Design Infinité will set you back €25.50.
The Liner Design long-wear calligraphy gel eyeliner (€22.50) has a limited edition range of six shades:
- Black Fishnets (601)
- Trendy Grey (600)
- Purple Jewels (301)
- Uptown Brun (100)
- Emerald Seductive (500)
- Downtown Blue (400)
The creamy texture of this liner gives enough colour in one brush stroke so if you like vibrant colour in a hurry, this is one for you. It's smudge proof and waterproof, and you could try blending it out for a dramatic, evening eye.
