Lancome Spring Overview feat. Hypnose Ultra Dazzling Eyeshadow in Topaz Doree

A quick look today at the soft and romantic delights of the Lancôme Spring Beauty Look, French Ballerine. Fronted by actress Lily Collins, this is a small and pretty edit focusing on plumped, glossy lips, radiant cheeks and softly shimmering eyes, in a delicate, barely-there colour palette. 

Having fallen for the new Hypnose Ultra Dazzling eyeshadows released with the brand’s Christmas collection I was thrilled to receive Topaze Dorée, one of two new shades for spring. 

This is much more sheer than the intense festive offerings but no less lovely – the delicate, rosy peach tones translate to a sheen of glossy, almost wet-look colour on the eyes. There’s plenty of sparkle, but not too much that I wouldn’t wear it for daytime, as I’m doing in the first pic here. A pretty pink, Spinelle Rose, is also available – both are €27. 

The highlighter blush in Rose Ballerine (€45) also looks incredibly pretty from the press shots – Lancôme are so, so good at pretty cheek powders and I don’t think this will hang about too long. Other standouts include the sugared almond plumping gloss, €24, and hot pink shade for nails, Vernis in Love Rose Satin, €18.

Interestingly, the brand have also introduced a colour-optimising base coat which, applied under polish, intensifies the colour.  This is also €18 and I’ll definitely pay it a visit the next time I pass a Lancôme counter. 

What say you, anything catching your eye?

Hey Emma,this is definitely a very versatile shade! I might have something similar (and more sparkling) from Chanel. I have the pretty blush, and I'm going to give it go today!
