First Look: Lancôme L'Absolu Désir Beauty Collection for Autumn 2013

Clockwise from top left, Kate is wearing: lipstick #386, Prun Desir; #323 Rose Desir; #132 Caprice; # 322 Rouge Desir
Dark, vampy lips are a big story for autumn and with their limited edition AW13 collection, Lancôme is right on the money.  L’Absolu Désir is inspired by classic Parisian chic; the campaign features Kate Winslett shot by Mario Testino, and looking every inch the timeless Hollywood star.

The collection is all about deep lips, a radiant complexion and perfectly manicured nails and is elegantly packaged in black and gold, branded with the silhouette of the Eiffel Tower as well as the Lancôme rose. 

L-R: Purple Fiction, Black Sepia, Grey Lumiere

What’s inside is lovely: six rich lip colours in shades of red and plum (€26), three dark and mysterious near-black shades of nail polish (€18) and the scene-stealing Rose Desir blush, created to complement the lipsticks in the range.

While the price is fairly ouchy at €45, the coral shade will be flattering on so many skintones and, well, just look at it. What can I say - I’m a sucker for a pretty palette and Lancôme are the absolute masters (see some previous favourites here and here).

I’m heading to the French capital myself in the morning so this collection is really resonating with me right now. The orangey-red lippy, Caprice, will definitely be mine when it hits counter in September, and I’m very interested in checking out those nail colours, too. 

What about you – is anything catching your eye?
