‘The BAFTA Collection 2009: BAFTA Black” was created by Aaron de Mey, Lancôme’s Make-Up Artist Director According to the Selfridges website – The collection is inspired by the colours of the Baccara Black rose; BAFTA Black offers a captivating colour statement of red, black and all the burnt reds in between. The collection will be available from the 1st February 2009. (Am not too sure if the collection will be available in countries besides the UK).
“The overall look is cool and sexy with a sophisticated eye. Eyes should be gently smoked and can be made to look strong and sharp or subtle and soft. Either way this is a look to smoulder on the red carpet,” Aaron de Mey.
Aaron de Mey will be in store at Selfridges Oxford St on Saturday 7th February 2009 so head over to the counters!
I happen to walk pass the Lancome counter today and was totally mesmerised by that visual advertisement…that sexy pout with smouldering eyes and sexy just got out of bed hair caught my attention…I wanted to be like her! So naturally I walked right up to the counter and started playing with the testers…
Firstly, there was a huge black container that wasn’t round nor rectangular nor square – quite an unusual container which made me pick it up and quite nearly broke it…anyway it contains a white shimmer powder… see picture below.
Next I moved on to that red lipstick that just called out to me…its not red like in the pictures…more of a orange red or a tomato red…kinda like the colour Marilyn Monroe would wear…a 1940s classic red…
I tried the black lip gloss too…its black…with shimmers in it…I really cannot see how this black lipgloss will fit in with my makeup but am sure it would be great for layering lip colours which are too bright or for ladies who are really into the Gothic look.
That gorgeous pink lipgloss was not available for me to test.
But what really got me interested was the eyeshadows…which I simply cannot find pictures off…there are 3 shades…all very shimmery and all very pigmented. They are a shimmery white, a shimmery black and a shimmery dark plum. From the visual advertisement, it appears that the shimmery black was use to line the eyes, the shimmery plum in the crease and the shimmery white on the rest of the lids…there is also apparently a shimmery/glittery mascara available that can be used as a top coat or just at the tips for extra sparkle. There’s also a black glittery eyeliner pencil.
There’s also a shimmery black nail polish and a shimmery red nail polish…I didn’t get a chance to play with those testers…
