Lancome is a favorite makeup brand for many MUA and makeup lovers alike as one of the upper echelon of makeup brands. There are a lot of people who are brand loyal to Lancome that would be ecstatic to receive any one of the Lancome Paris en Rose holiday 2016 makeup collection limited edition offerings. Already available for purchase at Lancome, Sephora, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue, the collection features colors inspired by the well known entrancing and enchanting lights of Paris and all of the snowy photos of a crystal glazed Paris adorned with falling snowflakes on postcards and literature. Lancome has really boosted the offering this year from case to product, as everything is beautifully done.
Lancome La Palettes Des Reves ($40.00) (Limited Edition)
Closed, La Palette Des Reves resembles a small gilded clutch, as the outside is covered beautifully only to be clicked open and reveal six beautiful smooth shades of color that range from a sparkling cream color to one reminiscent of roasted chestnuts. The palette is obviously very holiday inspired and includes a large square mirror and a mini eyeshadow brush. Several of the shades shimmer in the light before even being applied to the skin. With the right application and level of skill many different equally beautiful and dramatic looks can be obtained with this stunning palette of dreams.
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge ($32.00)
L’Absolu Rouge by Lancome for the 2016 holiday season is being offered in O Oui which is a very pink shade of lipstick and Rose, which is red and amusing as all Lancome lipsticks have a little rose in the fresh shape. Lancome likes the look of soft pink and classic red lipstick for the holidays.

Lancome Grandiose Extreme Mascara ($32.00)
As this mascara is identified as Grandiose Extreme the expectations are high, and this mascara coming in Noir Mirifique does not disappoint. The shape of the wand makes application easy, the brush makes a huge impact on lashes and the formula offers a lot of drama with every application.
Lancome Le Duo Khol Double Ended Eyeliner and Highlighting Pencil ($27.00) (Limited Edition)
The double ended eyeliner and highlighting pencil duo is a great two in one tool that comes in three different fabulous colors. While the highlighter is one standard color found on each of the three pencil duos, the other colors are a rich plum, a deep black and a nice brown. The colors are all beautiful and all ready to go together eliminating the search for that runaway highlight pencil. Both ends of the pencil are capped in gold.
