Summer Bliss is the first Lancome collection designed by favourite Lisa Eldridge. According to the brand she was inspired by the mysterious, fresh, and colorful jungle landscapes. Although all the products and shades look beautiful, there is something that really stands out.
And that is Belle de Teint Elixir, $38
It is described as a “healthy-glow cocktail with a light weight liquid phase. The oil phase provides comfort, watery phase provides freshness and lightweight feel, and the pearly phase delivers long-lasting bronzing makeup results for a radiant complexion. A subtly shimmery fluid that highlights summer skin’s natural glow in a few drops. This oil elixir can be used to enhance glow for face and legs.”

Ok, I am finally doing it! Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is. The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…
If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)
Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else. Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.
The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy. I like the hint of radiance it gives, too.
BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there. I usually mix it with foundation to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.
If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how toRead More
Here is a preview of Lancome’s Christmas 2015 makeup collection, which was inspired by the poetry and the colours of a secret Parisian garden at night. The key shades are of this collection are red, gold and purple.
You can get everything you need for a festive celebration – shimmering eye shadows, sparkling top coat for lashes and nails and beautiful lip colours.
I personally would love to have a Pourpre Aura eye liner and the lipsticks. Lancome lipsticks are some of my favourites.
