Lancome Show by Alber Elbaz- Mint Jolie Eyes & Definicils Mascara


Lancôme jumped into the collab world with their cute Show Collection  from Alber Elbaz, the designer behind the glorious Lanvin line.

Show is  eye palettes and mascaras, which  particularly are fun. We don't see designed mascara tubes too often outside of MAC's special editions. Yes, it's just a mascara tube that usually gets tucked away, but why not have fun looks on them too ?

Each Lancôme  mascara  has a coordinating palette ,  outside package design wise. You can buy whatever you want, but for instance here the Definicils has green eyes on it's packaging and is teamed with the Mint Jolie palette  . Mint Jolie has the same box and cover lid design. You'll get the same with the black and blue stars of Midnight Rush palette and Hypnose Star mascara, and so on.

Mint Jolie has a well pigmented mint shade at it's core along with 4 other shades to highlight and define. Lancôme adds a plastic topper with where each shade can/should go as well as a guide pamphlet inside the box.  The taupe and deeper green shade meant as a liner are very pretty  and all are wearable on their own or used together.

Four Lancôme mascara are in the  Show Collection, Hypnose Star, Drama and Doll as well as Definicils and there are 4 eye palettes, Rose Coquette, Taupe Craze, and Midnight Rush in addition to Mint Jolie.

Lancôme Show Eye Palette is $ 51
Lancôme Show Mascara $ 29
