Lancome's Declaring Indigo Collection - Indigo Paris Le Vernis, La Rose Liberte Reviews, Photos, Swatches


Indigo Paris Le Vernis

Lancome’s Declaring Indigo Collection continues to impress with two more items that deserve their own post.

Indigo Paris Le Vernis ($18.00) is just one of those shades of lacquer that instantly captures your attention, and there’s really no denying how stunning the color is. It’s a rich, deep-dark blue with lighter blue and silver shimmer laced throughout the base color. In low-light conditions, it appears like a semi-glossy dark, navy blue. When the light hits it, all of the shimmer sparkles and glimmers. Beyond being gorgeous, it is also incredibly well-suited for the fall season. When I swatched Indigo Paris, I was too excited to bother with a base, and I forgot to take it off–four days and no chipping and only minor tip wear. Without a base! Lancome’s formula is thick, opaque, and easy to use. Two medium-thick coats of polish will give you shimmering, deep water-blue tips in no time flat.

Another standout product amongst the line-up was La Rose Liberte ($40.00), which is an exclusive, limited-edition highlighting bronzer with an embossed rose design. The rose itself begins as white, but it quickly fades upon first swatch. Luckily, it really is ornamental, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the highlighter itself–who likes colors that don’t go all the way through when they’re actually vital to the compact’s color? Not me! Since that’s not the case here, La Rose Liberte is a soft, shimmery shade of gold with bronzy bits. I personally thought it was gorgeous, though since I’m warm-toned, the color suits me extremely well. I don’t think it is so warm as to be impossible to use for cooler skin-tones, but I’d advise checking it out in person if you are particularly cool.

wow, that nail polish is absolutely stunning! i knew it’d be great the moment i saw the promo pics πŸ˜€ gosh, lancome’s really outdone itself with this collection…aaron de mey’s creativity is such a breath of fresh air!

Yep it’s all stunning – I love the highlighting powder, the nail polish is nice too, but I’ll have to see it in person, I have several dark metallic blues already.

What products from the collection did you end up getting Christine?

I LOVE that nail polish! Gimme gimme gimme!

PS: I really enjoyed your interview with Hillary today. You sounded so natural and funny (and you know what you are talking about too). Did you really donate 60 lbs of make up to a women’s shelter?! That’s so sweet πŸ™‚ Anyway, I’ll shut my yap now πŸ˜‰ you should really put the interview up here!

Thanks, Roxanne! I want to post it all up when she has the transcript ready, too πŸ™‚ That way you don’t have to listen to it all, LOL!

But yep, I did!
