It’s all looking gilt edged from Lancome for their winter collection, but I think the stand out has to be the Lancome Ombre Hypnose Mono in Fil d’Argent, £18, with its gorgeous detailing – see above. You can use the formula wet or dry – if indeed, you can bear to use it at all!



The Ombre Les Paillettes aux Yeux above is a mother of pearl loose shimmer to apply directly to the eye lids or over eyeshadow to give it dimension and sparkle. It is £17.50.

For lips, it is Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in Rubis Exquis, £19.50, with metallic shimmer.

And finally (apart from a Kohl crayon, £16.50) there is this golden hue for nails; I’m not sure exactly what it is called because one thing says Golden Bubbles and the other says Ginger Swing – I hope it is Golden Bubbles because that’s the best name for a golden nail polish! This is £12. It all launches on 1st November.
