Early this year we heard about an upcoming collaboration between Lancome and fashion designer Alber Elbaz (Lanvin). WWD has more details today, including the photo of the packaging Elbaz designed for Lancome mascaras. The limited edition collection will focus on eye makeup, which makes me happy because some of my all time eyeliner and mascara favorites come from Lancome.
The collection will include some tried and true shades from the existing range and a few new or reworked ones, such as a black mascara enriched with a black-blue pigment. I do hope that enough attention and thought went into the products themselves to make them more than just about Alber Elbaz's packaging , but as long as the quality is consistent I'm happy with an Elbazified Hypnose Drama.
The collection will hit the counters and lancome.com on June 15th and will include madcaras: Hypnose Doll, Drama, and Star, as well as Définicils($29 each). There will be four eye palettes($51 each), and a set of false lashes, $35 that will be a Nordstrom exclusive.
