More newness from Lancome for its 10th Hypnose Anniversary – the Lancome Hypnose Naturals collection. The most interesting things, I think, are La Base Paupieres Pro (£21 HERE) – six toned lid primers to tamp down redness and help eye-shadow last longer. I used mine on its own, instead of shadow and it certainly does even out tone on the lid. Drier in consistency than foundation, it’s a very smooth, easy to apply formula. The fact that you can buy a tone that’s a match for your skin is a bonus – I’ve only ever come across primers that are one-shade-suits-all and if you’re going to put shadow over it, that doesn’t matter, but with La Base Paupieres Pro, you have the option of no shadow. I think these are really for anyone who loves the minute detail of make-up application.
The star of the Lancome Hypnose Naturals show is the Hypnose Palette (£37 HERE). It’s pretty much all you need for a matte natural look or an intense smokey eye look. The formula is interesting – Lancome calls it ‘wet’ technology using pigments in fluid (you won’t feel or see this). As the water evaporates, what’s left behind is an ultra concentrated colour.
Significantly, there is zero drop.
Finally, Le Sourcils Pro (limited edition) for brows (£18.50, HERE). A creamy, nude highlighter on one end and a matte crayon to define the brows. This is available in 4 shades from blonde through to black.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
Lancome Hypnose Naturals have already launched so if you’re in the mood for matte, natural hues, there’s no more looking to do.
