Beauty Collaboration: Lancôme X Olympia Le-Tan
Hello My friends! I have a short but super exciting blog post for you all today… the day has finally come where the Lancôme X Olympia Le-Tan beauty collection has been launched and I am SO happy to have a few pieces! I first heard about this collection a few months ago and around that time I heard rumours that it wasn’t going to be available in the UK. My beauty crush, crashed. Or left me crushed, I’m not really sure, but I was sad not to be able to get it.
The beauty gods must have heard my cries, as it seems I had false information and the Lancôme X Olympia Le-Tan IS available in the UK and I am now the proud owner of two rather lovely pieces. First up, I have a Matte Shaker in a limited edition shade which has been created for the collection, it also comes in a rather lovely Olympia Le-Tan box. Personally, I wish it had a bit of an Le-Tan make-0ver, but it’s still cute nether-the-less. I really like the Lancôme Matte Shakers, they are a but like a lip oil mix with a lip stain, they are highly pigmented, super-longwear and they have a lovely soft matte finish. The only thing you have to be aware of is that when you first start using it you have to shake them REALLY hard! Like shake, shake, shake and when you get bored, keep shaking. But don’t worry, it’s worth the effort once you start using them!
The second piece, and the pièce de résistance is this stunning Cushion Highlighter. I mean, just look at it! It’s the most beautiful compact I’ve ever seen; adorned with layers of fabric and stitched perfectly to make the most beautiful motif! Inside the compact, it’s a cushion highlighter and applicator pad. I tried to swatch it, but my swatch-skills are rubbishy but it’s a lovely wearable soft glowy gold tone. It’s not a super-strobe highlighter, but it hits the spot! The texture is very similar to the Lancôme cushion blushers, which is soft and balmy and just MELTS into skin. I adore those blushers as I love the girly dewy glow they give, this highlighter has a similar vibe. Also, I personally love a liquid highlighter, as it doesn’t sit in my wrinkles as much as a powder highlighter… just saying!
If you want to indulge in the Lancôme X Olympia Le-Tan beauty collection, then you can get it now. The Wonderland Palette looks STUNNING (it looked like one of her iconic book handbags!) but it’s sold out right now, the Lipstick with Lips Motif is also adorable and the iconic Monsieur Big Mascara has also had an Olympia Le-Tan makeover. Personally, I would recommend going for the Wonderland Palette or the Cushion Highlighter.
