It was all a little secretive, but I wasn’t going to decline an invite to a Lancôme event which requested that I attended in French Chic attire. And, since the event was the launch of Lancôme’s new beauty counter within Myer (after hours), there surely would have to be some French champagne – oui?
Being greeted with a ‘bonjour’, as I entered Myer, momentarily transported me back to Paris. And there was indeed French champagne on offer. There’s no doubt that Lancome knows luxury makeup. Their expert makeup artists were ready with brushes to unveil to us the latest Lancome product – the Miracle Cushion. It’s an oil-free liquid foundation in a cushion sponge. They claim that this product even cools down your skin’s surface temperature slightly in warm conditions!
It was a lovely night of chatting to strangers and makeup artists as well as receiving a new look. Thanks to my lovely Lancôme beauty expert who taught me how to create a ‘smokey eye’ look. It was great to see that some guys were using and enjoying such a beauty product!
Like many others, my foundation is one which I have used for decades! Every now and then, I’ll be tempted to trial out something. Nothing has stuck and I’ve always reverted back to my old favourite. When you find one that suits your skin, you just stick with it! Lancôme’s Miracle Cushion looked and felt lovely when it was applied to my skin on the night. I’ve still to try it out properly. Could this be the start of a new relationship? Check back to see how it performs.
Thanks Lancôme for the invite to this lovely event. Thanks to the lovely gentleman who made sure there was always a glass on French champagne in my hand!
