We love the sophistication of black lacquer packaging as much as the next cosmetics junkie, but sometimes a girl just needs a little something to brighten up a morning makeup routine. Enter Alber Elbaz’s whimsical new Lancôme makeup line, due to hit shelves worldwide on June 15.
The partnership was announced back in January, but until today product imagery has been kept strictly under wraps. Now, however, we’ve got a look at the mascaras, eye shadow palettes, and false lashes from the limited edition collection, called Hypnôse Show .
In an interview with WWD, Elbaz explained why he chose eyes as the focus of his makeup debut:
“Once I was in a fancy place where there was this group of people that were all shining. The shoes were shining, the hair was shining, the skin, watches and diamonds — but the eyes were not shining. I thought if I were to do a project I would love to do a ‘happy eye’ project to make the eyes shine.”
Happy eyes! How cute is he?
