Lancôme celebrates the radiance of Parisian end of the year festivities with a reinterpretation of the city’s famous lights in its Christmas Collection. The collection features gold in all guises and facets combined with hints of rich festive colours. There is an  elegantly gilded new interpretation of the smoky eye, subtly warmed by a touch of cabaret red. Nails are precious gems, adorned with gold dust or fully metallic. Skin is sublime, its radiance warmed by a subtle veil of gold. The most sophisticated of elegance for the most delicate seduction imaginable.
