Lancome Creme Blush Summer 2015
The Lancome Creme Blush Summer 2015 collection is exactly perfect! I am such a fan of a creme blush and the textures on these are sublime, being slightly moussy, too. You only need the tiniest dab to get a semi translucent pop of colour (the most over-used term in beauty, I know) that gives a fresh looking flush (is that the second most over-used?!).
Now that Lisa Eldridge is the Lancome Creative Director, I think we’re going to see some real changes – as of now with this collection – Lisa loves a creme blush so I’m really happy to see things moving so swiftly. Usually, beauty brands work seasons ahead, not just one or two, so I’m not sure how much input Lisa has had in the Lancome Summer collection, but now these creme blushes have appeared, I’m thanking her anyway!
You can see in the swatch that they diffuse really well, but they are quite bright so go very gently at first. If I was to find fault with the Lancome Creme Blush Summer 2015, they don’t move about on the skin too well, especially if your skin is dry, so I’d always try and use a brush for these to get a good diffusion. However, they are very lightweight – and weightless on the cheeks – more for a ‘bonne mine’ look than full on rouge. The shades from left to right are: Rouge Mistral, Coral Alize and Brise Rosee. The collection has already launched in the US but not here in the UK yet – they will go exclusively to Harvey Nichols this month for £23.
