Indulge in sweets without the unwanted calories… or any calories, for that matter. Lancôme’s spring 2018 collection, My Makeup Guilty Pleasure, is all sorts of pastel perfection with a focus on everyone’s favorite French pastry, the Macaron.
The nail polishes come in three dreamy shades of pink, purple, and blue, with a top coat that will leave a frosty veil similar to that of a sprinkled treat. Then there’s the Jelly Flower Lip Tint, a rosy pink gloss that is brought to life by the authentic flower petals floating within. The Les Toppings Eye Shadow Palette just about steals the show (but doesn’t take the cake) with ten springtime hues of glittering green and purple offset by shades of pink, blue, and yellow. And the brand added more shadows to the lineup by taking a colorful twist to their cult classic Ombre Hypnose with 4 mini versions in similarly sweet shades of yellow, pink, purple, and blue.
The cherries on top of this delectable collection, however, are the macaron-shaped blush and blenders that come in sets of 2 or 4. Le Petit Macaron and Le Teint Macaron have packaging not far from what you would find in authentic French patisseries, with geometrical designs in blue and pink with Ladurée— sorry, we mean Lancôme—written in feminine script along the top. The rich and creamy blushes come in 2 rosy shades, giving natural-looking color to your cheeks, and you can ensure they are properly blended with your blue or pink foam pastry. We’ll take a baker’s dozen, please.
