We can almost hear the lapping of the waves as summer slowly treads its way towards us, which could only mean one thing in the beauty industry: new summer products. As we transition into the beach season, it’s high-time that we also leave the remnants of winter and update our makeup stash with more season-appropriate products.
By now, virtually every cosmetics company has stepped further ahead, already releasing their new collections for us to consume. One of them is beauty giant Lancôme, who is embracing the summer season with their inspiring new lineup. Fashion Glamour handpicks three standout products from the line, which captures the spirited warmth of the season.
Although a set of rosy cheeks are irresistibly alluring, summer is more about having the perfect glowing skin. To achieve just that, Lancôme created this limited edition multipurpose mineral soothing pressed bronzer that also works for the body and décolleté. The brand details that the bronzer was inspired by “the desert sun and exotic mirages,” which could well be the driving force behind the exquisite accents of gold, copper and pink on the bamboo-designed surface. With a slight hint of shimmer from this powder bronzer, this earthy bronzer will be all you need to get that highly coveted sun-kissed summer glow.
It’s not taboo to wear lipstick during the summer but they tend to look harsh during summer months. As such, now would be the perfect time to temporarily retire your favorite red lipstick for Lancôme’s limited edition Color Design Hydra-Balm. Arriving in three effeminate shades of Cactus Flower, Desert Primrose and Lotus Blossom, these hydrating lip balms nurture the lips amid the blistering summer heat. Besides hydration, these also offer sun protection and a layer of sheer color.
The eyes were not spared from Lancôme’s barrage of summer beauty products, creating the Color Design Pink Safari Palette, a six-shade shimmery concoction of soft pinks and warm copper, brown and orange. The six glorious shades offer easy application as well, with its soft, smooth and silky property. Although this limited edition compact is tailored for the summer, the deeper shades also afford plenty of options to pull off a smokey eye even after the summer hullabaloo dies down.
