I was super excited to hear about the relaunch of Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipstick line for fall 2016 but now when I saw the irresistible colors in the store, I know it will pain my wallet. After 25 years, L’Absolu Rouge reinvents itself and becomes even more precious, feminine and suprising than ever. The packaging has a completely new design, an ultra-desirable tube, a tribute to the jewel cases create by Armand Petitjean. A jewel of a case for a lipstick that sparkles ever more brightly. Make-up Lisa Eldridge was the one to create 50 new shades for Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipstick in variations of pinks, reds, nudes and most extroverted colors.
“I wanted to create a collection of extremely pure shades that irresistibly attract the eye and the imagination,” explains Lisa Eldridge. “I wanted to create something very appealing and exciting. I also made sure that each colour family was well represented, with perfect nudes, intense reds, deep raspberries, punchy oranges and simple yet vibrant pinks.”
U.S. Launch Date – September 2016 at Lancome counters and online @lancome-usa.com

Summer seems to be ending to fast and my mind is still set upon pinks just like this beautiful Kinetics Bossa Nova Solar Gel Nail Polish that I’ve been wearing for the last 9 days. Oh yeah!…you can definitely tell how much I like this shade since I just didn’t want to take it off of my nails and kept it to see how truly long lasting its formula is. If wearing a pink nail polish is not your thing then you can check out Kinetics Rio Rio Summer 2016 Collection (swatches, info) for other vibrant shades like blue, green, orange, fiery red and even nudes and pastels.

Lancome launches a new product totally dedicated for groomed brows. The new Lancome Sourcils Styler Brow Gel comes in three shades and is perfect to be layered on top of brow pencils. I personally prefer using brow pencils instead of gels as I feel more comfortable with them and not to mention that for me they are easier to use.
