For the matchy-matchy trend: Lancôme's "Rouge In Love" and "Vernis In Love"
Though fall is easily my favorite season of the year, spring brings about plenty of perks as well. Among them, fresh and flirty color palettes touted by both the fashion and beauty world. Today I’m dishing about Lancôme’s two new lip and nail collections, both inspired by L-O-V-E love. And really, what’s a more appropriate spring inspiration than blossoming affection and unfolding ardor? Nothing, I say!
The Rouge In Love collection consists of 21 lip colors that boast a lipgloss-esque finish and up to 6 hours of staying power.
“Rouge In Love is the perfect accessory for your lips,” says Lancôme. “The collection’s 21 shades ensure the perfect shade no matter what time of day it is or what mood you’re in.”
What I love about this particular collection is that it’s actually a 3-in-1 collection that provides different colors based on time of day. The three mini sets are “Jolis Matins,” natural colors ideal for AM hours, “Boudoir Time,” splashier shades that make a statement in the early afternoon, and “Tonight is My Night,” bold colors that will earn you the right kind of attention while sipping martinis with your girlfriends downtown.
For those unaware, the French term “vernis” literally means “varnishing,” and refers to the day prior to an art exhibition when artists were allowed to make minor touch ups and, of course, varnish already hung work. That descriptor should give you a feel for the glossy, high quality finish of the “Vernis in Love” nail varnish collection.
The collection, naturally, works with “Rouge in Love” and features 17 new tantalizing shades. With rosy reaches, pretty pinks, intrepid reds and cool purples, there’s something to satisfy every woman’s personality (even if she has more than one!).
Says Lancôme: “Housed in a petite bottle with a new exclusive brush, Vernis In Love combines ultimate brilliance and intense color with a mistake-free application.”
In conclusion: Let the multiplying rabbit population and rising temperatures of spring, along with these two new collections, inspire and incite your own love affairs this season.
P.S. Lancôme also has a new longwear gel eyeliner, “Liner Design,” perfect for creating a dramatic eye. You know – the kind of eye that’ll catch the (preferably handsome) eyes of another.
