15 Sep Review, Swatches: Lancôme French Idole Fall 2014 Collection: Green, Purple 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette, Artliner 24H, L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor, Les Sourcils Definis Brow Pencil
“Perfectly structured brows frame intensely smoky eyes. Graphic minimalism meets the latest
It’s all about the purples and greens! This fall, Lancôme came out with an effortlessly gorgeous
collection that took inspiration from the violet beauty of dark amethyst and beguiling mystery
of green malachite. Channeling the je ne sais quoi of the modern French woman, French
Idole is a natural, bold and utterly mysterious line. With innovative new formulas and updated
favorites, the collection has an apparent sophistication that was born to become the new classic.
NEW! 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette in Golden Sage: Smoky, bold eyes are my all-time favorite makeup look. This beautiful palette, which comes with instructions on how to apply the multifunctional colors from day to night, is a subtle spin on the classic. The green dazzles, while the brown shades keep the look neutral. I would recommend wetting your brush before you apply color for a deeper pigment, otherwise, I found applying the shadows dry made them blend together. You can also use the colors separately for any combination you choose; create countless looks from a single palette.
NEW! Les Sourcils Definis in 103 Auburn and 105 Brown: Our brows frame our face, and many women are in need of that perfect pencil for a defined brow. Les Sourcils is a super-slim and extra-precise brow liner. These pencils do not need sharpening and come with their own brow brush. Incredibly thin, they deliver the perfect line that is easily blendable with your natural brow.

Auburn and Brown can be used on a wide variety of hair colors and skintones, but, ideally, Auburn is good for medium to dark brunettes; Brown is great for very dark brown hair. They also maintain a staying power that will last you even after the shower. The water-proof formula allows for more than 6-hours of long-wear with no fear of smudging. It is the perfect liner for pool and beach days, as well as those humid summer scorchers. Remember to always go a shade lighter than your hair color, so that your brows won’t look too harsh.
Artliner 24H in Black Diamond: I cannot even express just how much I love this liner! A vinyl-finish, liquid eyeliner that lasts 24-hours and won’t smudge or budge. Not only is it incredibly precise and easy to apply, it doesn’t budge! That perfect, winged-out look is hard to maintain as the long hours pass during the day. The last thing you want is a smudged or faded lid. With its precision-tip foam applicator, this liner goes on without feathering, flaking or fading.
This liner is so long-lasting, I had to apply makeup remover a few times to the area in order to remove it. It’s perfect for deep-set eyes like mine, which tend to crease any eye makeup that I put on. The color is great, too! Some liners claim to be black, but are such a thin formula that a few coats must be applied to the area in order to avoid any transparency. This liner is so pigmented, you only need to swipe it on once!
L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Fleur Impressioniste: Infused with moisture-boosting Pro-XylaneTM, lips stay moist, soft and comfortable for up to 8-hours. A very pretty pink, this lip color goes on smoothly, delivering hydration and pigment. It is better suited for mature women, or women with tan or olive skintones, as this particular shade of pink did not balance out with my fair skin. In my opinion, this color would better suit a woman with a darker complexion. That being said, this peachy color is the epitome of sophistication. That perfect dark pink you would expect Audrey Hepburn to wear. The tube the lipstick comes in is magnetic, so storage is easy. Just pop the cap back on and it will stay put!
NEW! Vernis in Love in Amethyste Brune: A more sophisticated take on classic purple, this nail color delivers wonderful pigment but in more of a muted matte hue. It isn’t in-your-face purple, it is something much more appropriate for the office. A hint of dark glamour. As always with Lancôme polishes, application is super-easy, as its wide brush delivers the perfect stroke.
