Gold, red and shimmer are a necessity of any holiday collection as far as I'm concerned and apparently Lancôme agrees with me as that is exactly what is involved in the holiday collection that they've got coming up! Go ahead and have a good drool over these limited edition babies...


Petit Trésor - $39 - in 2 shades: S112 Fil d'Or and S207 Fil d'Argent - with a woven look like a lame fabric, it's almost too pretty to use but if you can bring yourself to do it you'll find a shadow enriched with golden glints that frames the eyes in a halo of dazzling light and for a more intense effect, can be applied with a slightly damp brush.


Les Paillettes Aux Yeux - $25 - in 2 shades: 10 A La Belle Etoile and 20 Lumieres de Paris - a shimmering loose powder that can be applied directly to the lids with a formula that instantly adheres to skin with a mother of pearl finish.
Also available for the eyes in the collection:
Le Crayon Khol - $28 - 016 France in a Glance - a gold metallic liner with a creamy, long-hold texture that glides along the lash-line.
Hypnose Star - $33 - 01 Noir Midnight - for perfectly plump  and deep black lashes.


L'Absolu Rouge - $35 - in 2 shades: 181 Topaze Extase and 183 Grenat Délicat - infused with coppery mother of pearl for luminous and radiant lips.


Vernis in Love - $16 - in 3 shades: 522 Bubbly Gold - white gold, 532 Ginger Swing - gold ginger and 575 Flirty Red - infused with golden shimmer
