I was eager to get my makeover with Lancôme’s new fall collection "Declaring Indigo", especially since I had two more events to go to that night. I was amazed to see the overbooked turnout, with 50 Lancôme make-up artists busy at work, at the Glamour/Bloomingdale’s event at the 59th Street store on July 29th. If you love Lancôme, I highly recommend booking an appointment with make-up artist Angel Mendoza (looks a lot like Lou Diamond Phillips), who gave me the look I was looking for.
I prefer a dramatic eye and nude gloss for my nights on the town and the Indigo Charm eyeshadow quad and Declaring Gold gloss that I ended up purchasing definitely helped me achieve that effect. I feel like you can never have too many eyeshadows – and I definitely didn’t have any rich blues like the Declaration and Liberty shades included in the quad. Charming is great to use for highlighting the inner corner of the eyes. The gloss looks great when worn alone or over any lipstick or gloss color, adding natural, extra shine. It’s not sticky, is smooth and evenly distributed on the lips and I like the angled applicator.
Attendees were photographed for an in-store shoot right after their makeovers and were able to take home the glamorous shot. I missed my shoot opportunity since I was one of the last makeovers, but I did look fabulous for my next events.
There was also a gift with purchase, including a nautical blue and white striped hobo bag that came with High Resolution Refill-3X anti wrinkle cream, mascara, neutral eyeshadow quad, nude lipstick and the Bi-Facil double-action eye makeup remover (love that - it works so well!).
I’m all set for fall with my intense new Lancôme look!
