The wait is over! We can finally have a look at the long-awaited Lancome x Sonia Rykiel fall 2016 makeup collection, and guess what? We are in love with every piece of it! Set to become internationally available for purchase at Lancome, Sephora and Nordstrom on August 10, 2016, the limited-edition collection comes packed with joie de vivre and bright colors, inspired by Saint-Germain-des-Prés and greatly influenced by Sonia Rykiel’s aesthetics.
It was back in the beginning of March when we learnt about the upcoming collaboration between the French luxury cosmetics brand and the French fashion designer. When you redouble the French factor, as expected, the makeup line turns out to be all about Parisian allure, something we can never have enough of in the fashion world.
It’s not just the colors of the products that highly appeal to our senses, but also the vibrant packaging decorated with Sonia Rykiel’s signature colorful stripes, as well as fun lip, eye and heart prints. Like her runway collections, her makeup line also inspires to be eccentric, innovative, joyful and to create your own memorable style.
This is what the Lancome x Sonia Rykiel fall 2016 makeup line offers for real Parisian ladies:
