Lancome’s Pink Attitude Color Fever Lipstick ($25.00) reminded me so much of my beloved $50 lipgloss, but in lipstick form, so you know I had to get my hands on it as soon as possible. Pink Attitude is from Lancome’s Pink Irreverance Collection this Spring. This shade is always hard for me to describe, because there’s gold, greenish-gold, peach, and even a little bit of pink in it. It’s just gorgeous, and if you swatch it in person, maybe you’ll understand why I must have every lip product in this shade in my possession!
Lancome’s Electric Pink La Laque Fever ($26.00) is just such a stunning shade of hot fuchsia pink with a ridiculous amount of shimmer and glitter. It looks like shimmering water on your lips–well, if water was pink! This was by far the most stunning product that came out of Lancome’s Pink Irreverance Collection this Spring. It’s hard to miss it, and it’s even harder to pass it up.

Lancome’s Pink Irreverence Spring Collection is currently available on Lancome Online, as well as your major retailers for Lancome, like Nordsrom’s. I must admit I did not immediately want anything from this launch; the original promo photo I saw didn’t get me excited. Having seen this collection, I’ve totally changed my mind!
If there is one gloss you get this spring, make it La Laque Fever in Electric Pink. It is an amazing hot fuchsia-pink that’s utterly dazzling. These photos do not do the color justice–I totally urge you to make a stop by your local Lancome counter and test it for yourself. The other shades of La Laque are lovely; the high shimmer/glitter factor is really fun, but the texture doesn’t feel gritty.
I am really eying Color Fever Lipstick in Pink Attitude, because it looks exactly like Cle de Peau Gloss #2 in lipstick form. You know, one of my favorite colors ever–so you know I have to have it in lipstick form, too. Pure Black La Laque is an extremely intense, pitch-black black liner. Like seriously black. It also looks wet even when it’s dry, so it adds a lot of depth to any look when used. Layer it with Pure Sparkle La Laque for added glimmer!
Everything else was lovely and pretty no doubt, but the products mentioned above are ones I felt stood out and really grabbed my attention. I think the Color Fever Plumpers in Downtown Pink (glossy reddish pink) and Fuchsia Flaunt (coralish shimmer) are stunning, but they are drowned out by the Laque Fevers. City Mauve is creamy without shimmer in a mauvey nude shade, while Rose Punk looks like clear gloss an shimmer to me.
The other lipsticks available in the launch are creamy and smooth, and of course, Rock Icon Fuchsia really stands out being such a bright shade of fuchsia. Both Forget Me Not (rosy nude) and Mademoiselle (browny-nude) make good everyday colors, when you don’t want to wear Piha Black Color Fever Gloss (sheer, shimmery black).
Irreverent Madame is the quad with the pink shadows in it. I wasn’t overly impressed by the four shades, but it isn’t a bad quad. I’m just not in need of any of the colors, and none of them really wowed me in actual color. You know me, I’m over the chalky black trend, so that killed one. The deeper pink is nice, but since I have similar shades, I can easily pass. Mademoiselle Sass is a warmer quad with a peachy-pink shade that’s lovely, as well as a warm gold shimmered brown.
Lancome also featured two shades of Color Design Pro in Hard to Get and High Expectations, which can be used on eyes or face, apparently. I only swatched these, so I don’t know how they actually work in practice. The colors seemed fine to me, though High Expectations seemed a bit dark to use on the face–but it actually sheers out quite a bit and would look great on deeper complexions.

Lancome’s Oscillation Mascara ($34.00) was available for one-day for early purchase back in July. My curiousity was piqued enough for me to shell out the big bucks and pick one up from my local Lancome Boutique. I’ve been using it on and off since then, trying to decide whether I love it or just like it. Some days, I love it, and other days, it’s not a bad mascara, but it doesn’t give me the volume I want.
Here are the requirements in my holy grail mascara:
Thickens lashes without clumping
Lengthens lashes to false lashes’ length or BEYOND!
Blackest of black color
Doesn’t flake or smudge during the day
Easy to use on both upper and lower lashes
How does Lancome’s Oscillation measure up? Continue reading →
