Get Excited! Alber Elbaz's Lancome Collection is Coming
Alber Elbaz is the creative talent behind the drop-dead-gorgeousness that is Lanvin. His latest project doesn't involve dressing A-listers or models, though. Quite the opposite, actually. Alber is showcasing his iconic aesthetic in a limited-edition, must-have beauty collection with Lancome that will knock your socks off.
Lancome Show is a nine-piece collection of existing Lancome mascaras ($29), eye palettes ($51) and one special beauty accessory. Each was given a complete package makeover by Alber himself. If you know the designer, you know he loves to create quirky illustrations, and these products are basically little pieces of his artwork that you can collect for under $60 a piece.
Each eye shadow palette was given a unique, cheeky design by Alber. Plus, the four best-selling mascaras were designed to match a specific palette. Hypnose Doll Lashes and the Color Design Doll Palette in Rose Coquette were dressed in black and red hearts; Hypnose Drama and the Color Design Drama Palette in Taupe Craze are adorned with hot pink and black dots; Definicils and the Color Design Definicils Palette in Mint Jolie are covered in adorable green and black eyes; and Hypnose Star and the Color Design Star Palette in Midnight Rush are designed with black and blue stars.
The pièce de résistance (in our opinion) is a set of amazing false eyelashes ($35) housed in the most perfect illustrated case. The limited-edtion lashes "represent Alber's modern reinterpretation of classic Lancome style." We adore them because they add serious drama to any look, but don't look like you have eyelashes on at all! We also noticed that they look different on everyone.
Lancome Show by Alber Elbaz hits Lancome counters and lancome.com on June 15th. Mark your calendars, these are sure to sell out fast. Keep in mind, the False Eyelashes will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom.
