From the softest of shades to pure pop tones, Gloss In Love is created in a palette of vibrant pinks, oranges and fuchsias to play with to your heart’s content! Not forgetting my favourite shade Just Strass, an ultra-iridescent flashy white to layer on or to use as an undercoat to transform any shade of lipstick or gloss…  with its subtle scent of mouth-watering vanilla, lifted by a fresh fruit cocktail, it is spring 2013’s absolute must-have!

Hypnôse Star Is Boop-Oop-a-Doop

Betty Boop3

First of all, there is no doubt that Lancôme produces the best mascaras in the entire world and the newest creation HYPNÔSE STAR is just a testament to my statement.

For their advertising campaign, inspired by the movies of the 30s, the famous French luxury cosmetics house is calling upon Betty Boop, the sexy cartoon character, and Daria Werbowy. “Betty Boop’s mischievous eyes and innate sensuality are combined with the contemporary spirit and confident femininity of Daria Werbowy,” Lancôme says. “Yesterday’s vintage glamour meets the glamour of today.”

Betty Boo

Wrapped in a sparkling case, Hypnôse Star combines a specially designed brush, which has three patents pending, and a “Black Diamond” effect fluid formula to sculpt lashes. Two flat sides deliver mascara to the lashes, including the shortest ones, while two oblique sides with longer fibers separate and lengthen lashes while fixing them in a curl.

Utilizing two types of wax, Hypnôse Star offers two formulas for light texture and robust volume. Different soft waxes provide a mistake proof application while hard carnauba wax forms a thin film over the entire lash surface and sets the curl.

Available now for CHF 44.-.


Werbowy wears “Noir Midnight” Hypnôse Star mascara, Ombre Hypnôse eyeshadows “Erika F” I202 and “Strass Black” S310 and “Beige Diaphane” 03 Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation. Lips are enhanced with “Sequins d’Amour” 170N Rouge In Love lipstick.

Ombre HypnoseNew OMBRE HYPNÔSE eyeshadows are available for CHF 39 each in 24 amazing shades.

Have a look at this super-cute video in which we will learn from Mrs Boop that “all stars have a secret,” before Daria chimes in with Betty’s signature boop-oop-a-doop!

Lancôme Makes the World Fall in Love


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and Lancôme has come up with a pretty cool idea.

For the launch of “Rouge in Love”, its new range of lipstick, Lancôme sets the web buzzing with a unique video clip directed by Adria Petty and set to music by Brigitte.


Rouge In Love” is Lancôme’s new it-lipstick. Available in 24 trendy colours and endorsed by the British actress Emma Watson, it will be available from the beginning of February 2012. To celebrate it over the Valentine’s Day period, Lancôme has chosen Publicis 133 Lux and Digitas France to create a film event directed by the New York director Adria Petty, famous for her video clips for Beyoncé and Regina Spektor.


In a demonstration of style and creative daring, the director gives us her vision of ultra-modern glamour in 60 seconds bursting with cutting-edge pop references. Taking you through dynamic, colourful urban environments from London to New-York via Paris, the clip shows women’s lips tinted in pink, red or purple, all singing the same song – “Oh La La” by the popular French duo Brigitte (Aurélie Maggiori and Sylvie Hoarau).

The duo has rewritten the lyrics of its iconic track especially for Rouge in Love. This film, a declaration of love and desire for colour in all its forms, was revealed yesterday worldwide on the web! What is more to say than love your lips!

And enjoy the beautiful photos and the video at the end of this post.

LoL, Sandra
