In honor of the company’s 75th anniversary, Lancome has released four exclusive, limited edition lipsticks. The formula is L’Absolu Rouge (a semi-staining, very moisturizing formula that might be my current favorite). The packaging is a patterned silver case designed to evoke the architecture of the Eiffel Tower (similar to the lipstick case of Lancome’s 1949 Versailles collection). The case is a little smaller than usual, but the lipstick bullet is full/regular size.
French Touch was created in four shades: 300 Rose Edith (a peachy pink shade named for Edith Wharton, an American author who emigrated to France), 302 Rose Daria (a warm rose shade named for Lancome muse, model, and spokeswoman, Daria Werbowy), 304 Cherry Sarah (a mauve rose named for Sarah Bernhardt, a French actress), and 306 Cherry Kiki (a berry with blue sparkles, named for Kiki de Montparnasse, French model, painter, actress, and singer).
