Lancôme 2011 Holiday Collection Created by Abassadress Kate Winslet
The collection features five shades of L'Absolu Rouge lipstick (RRP €25.00), five shades of Le Vernis nail polish (RRP €20.50) and a face powder (RRP €45.00). Each of the products featured for Holiday 2011 have been embossed with the foundation's logo and feature Kate's signature. In creating this limited edition make-up collection alongside Kate, Lancôme have pledged to donate €150,000 to the Golden Hat Foundation.
We have the powder, Poudre Golden Hat, to show to you all and we've included swatches and first impressions!
Upon opening the powder compact, I was immediately struck by how incredibly glittery the powder was. The rose pink base is chock full of big, sparkly pieces of glitter while the raised hat detailing has an iridescent gold finish which looks almost like gold spray paint.
While this is a gorgeously artistic piece of cosmetic kit, it's not going to a product that everyone likes, purely because of how glitzy it is, even after the overlay has been removed. I would use this cautiously as a highlight but, if you suffer with big pores already, I would probably steer clear as this will only serve to draw more attention to them.
What do you think of Kate's collaboration?
