Here is a preview of yet another Christmas 2016 makeup collections. This time it is Lancome’s release which is all about pinks and purples. Although, these are not the typical “festive” shades, the products still come in those gorgeous glittery golden packaging.
The star products of the collection are definitely the cushion highlighter and an eye shadows palette.

161 Blanc Scintillant, 261 Brun Glace, 361 Paris en Rose, 461
I have already mentioned so many new lipstick launches here, here and here, but today let’s take a look at even more new and awesome releases. We all know that one can never have too many lipsticks. An although I personally can’t even fit all my lipsticks into my drawers, I want all of these. Ahem.
And even if you do not need anything, theses days the brands create such beautiful images, videos and the stories behind each product that you feel like you have to indulge. Very clever strategy.
“Covetable comfort meets confident color in a high-pigment formula that glides like a gloss, cloaks like a lipstick—and feels like nothing else. Semi-matte color glides on a stays supple without drying or feeling sticky. Developed with Oil Infusion Complex, an innovative concentration of precious oils, fused to create a smooth-glide effect. Fully coats lips on contact with smooth, saturated, semi-matte style.”
All shades are named after the ’70s counterculture phenomena. There are 13 shades, shown is No 54.
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge
One of my favourite lipstick range ever, so I am very excited about the re-launch of the line with a tonnes new shades, all of them being created by Lisa Eldridge they just have to be killer. These are not yet out but Lancome is available from:
To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.
I’ve made myself choose lipsticks in different colour families, so here are: plum, red and pink. I don’t like orange, nude or any other shades that much.
Since I have already reviewed each lipstick, I have just included the links. I also have to mention that Clarins was recently reformulated, and the new version is even better!
