First Look! Alber Elbaz x Lancôme is out now (but it won't be around for long...)

Once, at a fashion show, I was given a Lanvin notebook, adorned with Alber Elbaz sketches. His playful designs put a smile on my face every time I pulled it out of my handbag. When I'd filled it up,  I planned to repurchase - till I found it on Net-A-Porter for almost €50, and nearly fell over.

If Lanvin notebooks are out of my league, it seems unlikely that I will ever be dressed by the great man himself.  But thanks to Lancôme's new collaboration, at least my makeup can be... 

The hotly anticipated collection, which hit stores this weekend, focuses on the eyes and includes Hypnôse mascaras (€28), eyeshadow palettes (€49) and single shadows(€25), all dressed by Elbaz in the most pleasing designs - including hearts, polka dots and stars. It also includes a set of lashes - a first for Lancôme.

There is something so cheering and whimsical about these products that I know they'll fill that notebook shaped hole in my heart. Let's have a wee look at some of the other gorgeous designs.

And then there's this adorable teaser video, too...

Everything is limited edition, so if you'd like a little bit of Elbaz in your life, I'd move fast. 

What do you think - are you a fan of fashion/beauty collaborations?
