Lancome's Fall 2011, 29 St. Honore Collection

Lancôme’s Fall 2011 Color Collection, 29 St. Honoré—named after their original Parisian boutique—debuts this month. The collection, which was created by Lancôme Artistic Director for Makeup Aaron De Mey, evokes a seductive color statement that captures the essence of 1940’s glamour.  In this collection you will find eye shadow palettes with tender brown and grey shades along with lip and nail shades dressed in red. These colors represent the true Parisian woman, an international model of elegance and sophistication.

Their products include Blush Multilumière in Maison Lancôme a multi-color powder blush embossed with a Parisian city scene, replicating the first “Maison Lancôme.”  For eyes, there are two new sultry Color Design 5 Pan Palettes: Gris Fatale (used at L’Wren Scott’s Fall 2011 show) and Golden Frenzy.  The star of the collection is Le French Touch Absolu Lipstick in Rouge St. Honoré.   This limited-edition creamy red lipstick is packaged in an elegant gold case that merges vintage modern styles. Our mini Le Vernis nail polishes in Bang Bang Red and Noir 29 (both were used at Chris Benz’s Fall 2011 show) complete the collection.

Lancôme’s limited-edition collection—29 St. Honoré—will be available at all Lancôme counters and in July 2011.
