I own a few Lancôme facial products which generally works well on Oriental skin types, I have a few favourites and love them all.  I tend to wear water-resistent mascara such as Waterproof Hypnôse mostly on rainy and humid days to prevent mascara smudges under my eyes, or worst looking like Gene Simmons from Kiss band. Ooo shudders.

So, over the weekend and after much anticipation, Lancôme has launched an exclusive Hypnôse Show collection in collaboration with artistic director Alber Elbaz. Lancôme kindly sent me a few pieces to play with, I utterly adore the products and packaging adorned with bright solid colours and bold patterns – polka dots for Drama, hearts for Doll Eyes, star for Star, and eyes for Hypnôse classic, all entirely sketched by Alber Elbaz himself.  I’ve managed to lure my sister and budding beauty blogger May to sample the products and bait for the photography.  We’ve created the wide eye look with Hypnôse Doll Eyes 5 colour palette (shade DO5), a generous light coat of Hypnôse Star mascara (extra black), and Hypnôse Show Falsies to enhance May’s beautiful eyes.  We’re very pleased with the result and the falsies rocks!  What do you think?

Lancôme x Alber Elbaz’s Hypnôse Show collection are available at selected counters in June 2013.
Many thanks to Lancôme UK for sending in the pieces and May for helping me out.

    These are awesome! The first shot looks as if it could actually be the ad campaign. Got to say though – my favourite shot of them all is the flowers and fabric – I’d seriously have that framed on my wall!
