One of the biggest trends that I saw at last week’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was matching “lips and tips”. Lancôme introduces two new stunning lip and nail collections – Rouge In Love and Vernis in Love that make it easy to get that look. Read on for more details…
I had the chance to try both collections at the GOODNESS Lounge in New York. GOODNESS was a 4-day pop-up restaurant program created by Elettra Wiedemann; model, philanthropist, and face of Lancôme. In addition to the restaurant, the GOODNESS Lounge offered a chance to get a break from the hectic Fashion Week schedule. While there, I met with Lancôme national makeup artist Tarek Abbas, who touched up my makeup and selected #217, Delicate Lace, as a perfect daytime lip color for me.
The two new Lancôme collections, Rouge in Love (lip color) and Vernis in Love (nail color) are three “collections within a collection”, based on the time of day. They are: Jolis Matins (natural shades ideal for morning), Boudoir Time (punchy hues for the late afternoon) and Tonight Is My Night (intense colors perfect for a night on the town).
The Rouge In Love Collection is made up of 21 lip colors that have a gloss-like finish. The pigmentation is beautiful and the color is long-wearing. It offers beautiful definition–if you used to use a lip pencil, you won’t need to with Rouge In Love. The formula fees light and comfortable to wear. I really liked these lip shades.
And if I thought Rouge In Love was great, the Vernis In Love nail shades are crazy good! Lancôme has completely reformulated their nail colors with this launch. There are 17 fashionable colors in this collection, sorted into 3 collections, like with Rouge In Love. The shade that I tried was 585N Noir Caviar, a dark asphalt/black shade. I loved it! The brush is phenomenal–very user-friendly.
The Lancôme Rouge In Love Collection retails at $25 each, available at Lancôme counters nationwide, Nordstrom, Nordstrom.com and on Lancome.com. The Vernis In Love Collection retails at $15 each and is available now exclusively at Nordstrom, Nordstrom.com and Lancome.com. Vernis In Love will be available at all Lancôme counters nationwide beginning in May.
