29, Saint Honoré – Lancome Fall 2011 Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 25 - 2011

This Autumn sees the launch of what I can honestly say is the first seasonal collection that’s had me properly excited in a long time.  I knew Autumn wouldn’t let me down.  A beautiful neutral eye palette?  Tick.  A visually tantalising and wearable blush palette?  Tick.  A vintage-styled red lipstick?  Tick.

Be still my heart, be still.  Lancome’s 29, Saint Honoré is coming to town.

Inspired by the Femme Fatale trend of the 1930s and 40s, Aaron De Mey celebrates the flamboyant style of the urban, daring and stylish woman of this time (that’s me! – ed) in his new collection for Lancome.  A woman who uses her make-up to define, enhance, strengthen and intensify her beauty.

French Touch Absolu Lipstick £23.50
Les Oeillades Eye Palette £33
Maison Lancome Blush £32.50
Le Vernis Nail Varnish £12.50
Hypnose Drama Mascara £20.50

Chic, Parisian styling from a brand celebrating its heritage, the “29, Saint Honoré” references the address of the Lancome Institute, the brand’s historic home since its creation in 1935.

Of the Fall collection, Aaron De Mey, Lancome’s Global Make-Up Director said…

“I really wanted to create an essential make-up collection that represents the staples of a chic, sophisticated women’s make-up arsenal: red lips, brown lined, sculpted, defined eyes, groomed brows and fluffy lashes… A neutral coloured make-up with metallic hints layered over matt sculpting, defining powders.  A return to simplicity and sophistication…

It allows me to show a glamourous, graphic, sophisticated make-up style: Brown lined eyes with shades of Taupe, red painted lips and red or sparkly black nails… Very Femme Fatale.”

As much as it physically pains me to spoil the pristine surface of that blush, I wasn’t sent it to look at from a distance.  I’ll be sticking my fingers in the palettes and bringing some swatches over the next few days.

Classic, elegant and understated.  Sadly not the three words I’d use to describe myself but at least this collection might help me fake it.

Lancome 29, Saint Honoré will be available at Lancome counters nationwide from 1st September 2011.

    Oh my, that blush looks stunning! I would want two, one to use and one to look at adoringly! The lippie looks interesting, I am looking for my perfect red or a wine shade for A/W!

  2. Louisa says:

    I have to say I left a comment on another beauty blog a little while back about how I thought the detail on the blusher actually looked quite cheap but I put my hands up and say I am completely wrong. Your picture really does it justice. It looks gorgeous and something I would love to have sitting on my dressing table…although would never want to use it…maybe I need 2!

  3. Sarah says:

    The blush is amazing looking although I could never bring myself to use it. Love the shades in the eyeshadow quad also, they definitely look like colours you could get good use out of.

  4. Danielle says:

    The collection looks stunning. I really don’t think I could spoil that blush, it’s far too pretty!

  5. Lily says:

    I usually think when makeup is pressed into a picture, it looks extremely tacky – but that blush is BEAUTIFUL! The eyeshadow palette looks gorgeous too.

  6. Jamilla says:

    I’m getting that blush!

  7. Anitacska says:

    That blush is so pretty, I can’t wait to buy it for myself. Not sure if I can make myself touch it, I have a few gorgeous Lancome blushes I have not actually touched. But I still want them just to look at. 🙂 I know, I have a problem…

  8. FragrantWitch says:

    Mon Dieu! This has my name written all over it. I would love the 3 adjectives to apply to me as well. Makeup is all about transformation into our ‘ best’ selves right? So hopefully this will be the palette that makes me look elegant, understated and classic. Though, I would settle for ‘not tired and five years younger’ !

  9. Sara says:

    I eagerly await your review!

  10. gio says:

    That blush is gorgeous! But I’d be too scared to use it. I wouldn’t wanna ruin the pretty design.

  11. Eden-Avalon says:

    Loving the look of everything in this collection so far! Will definitely have to swatch.
