Lancome @ Monika Chiang NYFW Fall 2012


Lancome @ Monika Chiang NYFW Fall 2012

LANCOME was backstage creating the look at Monika Chiang this past week. Designer Monika Chiang was inspired by none other than Elettra Wiedemann when creating the beauty look for her Fall collection. “Elettra is a perfect muse for me,” Chiang says about the model, philanthropist, and face of Lancôme. “She’s such a natural beauty and has this really healthy glow about her. She can also effortlessly transform from girl next door to old Hollywood glamour girl or rocker chick, to suit her mood. I chose her not only because she’s beautiful, but because she’s strong, smart and stands for something.”

Lancôme National Makeup Artist Tarek Abbas created “enhanced natural beauty” for Chiang’s debut NY Fashion Week presentation. Tarek wanted the models’ skin to be flawless with a healthy glow. He contoured the cheeks using the new Blush Subtil Palette and swept bronzer around the hairline and chin. He mixed two neutral shades of Color Design Eyeshadow to create a subtle wash of color around the eyes and defined the eyes with dark brown eyeliner, which was carefully smudged and blended. One coat of Définicils Mascara in Brown created natural-looking lashes. Tarek applied Rouge In Love in Lasting Kiss with his finger and pressed the color onto the lips to pump up the model’s natural lip color.

Lancome Fashion Forward Color Design Eyeshadow

Lancome Fashion Forward Color Design Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “warm minted green” with a metallic finish. It looks absolutely NOTHING! like the swatch/photo of it on Lancome’s website, which makes it look more like a vibrant neon lime green. Instead, what we have is a pastel mint green with a subtle iridescent sheen. The color payoff is decent but could use a little more oomph or better binders so it would apply more opaquely. I know shades like this have to exist, but I couldn’t find anything in the Swatch Gallery; MAC Aqua was the closest, but it’s darker and more aqua, less green. It might be a little lighter than something like MAC Aquavert (which is a few years old now). Sugarpill Lumi has more of a teal iridescence.

Lancome Kitten Heel Color Design Eyeshadow

Lancome Kitten Heel Color Design Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “golden peach-y pink” with a shimmer finish. This is one of my personal favorite Lancome shades, because I’m all over any peach-pink eyeshadow! What I like about this one is that it is decidely pink with a golden sheen; often, these types of shades lean more orange (think MAC Melon pigment). I love that it’s more of a yellow-toned pink as the base color with the golden shimmer-sheen. The closest dupe I could think of was MAC Goody Goody Gum Drop which is similar but slightly cooler-toned and with a less noticeable golden sheen.

Lancome Volcano Color Design Eyeshadow

Lancome Volcano Color Design Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “muted taupe-grey” with a shimmer finish. It’s a great variation on taupe–a cool-toned brown with a grayish overcast and has more of a satiny sheen than an overt shimmer finish, but it doesn’t deliver on full color coverage. As far as similar shades, theBalm Selfish and NARS Grand Palais are close in color but much more shimmery. MAC Satin Taupe is much more intense and deeper.
