Highlighter blush in the form of letters, cream sticks for the face, lipsticks in new shades - meet Lancôme's Café Bônheur spring collection. Time for a test drive!

The new Lancôme collection conveys the mood of spring Paris. Blossoming cherries and magnolias that adorn the alleys of the city inspired the brand's specialists to create the main color palette of the Café Bônheur collection, which incorporates all shades of pink, from powdery to bright fuchsia. As for the packaging of the products, it reflects the legendary Parisian cafes with round wicker tables on the summer terraces.Looks like?

We have tested the main tools from the collection and are ready to share our impressions.

Blush In Capitals

Classic Lancôme powder in balls has been transformed into a blush-highlighter in the form of multi-colored letters, from which you can add the name of the French brand. The letters vary in color depending on the functionality: white is responsible for the radiance of the skin, pink gives a blush, brown - a slight tan.

To get the perfect powder mix, you need to randomly brush over all the letters at once: this will provide the most natural result.

Teint Idole Ultra Wear Stick

Parisians don't like bright and long-lasting make-up, they prefer delicate and light textures. A favorite in the field of decorative cosmetics is cream blush - they are applied not only on the cheeks to create a slight blush, but also on the moving eyelids to give the image a fresh look.

Mono-makeup is very popular in France, as it does not take much time, is easy to perform and emphasizes natural beauty. You can learn how to make it from the video below or from this article.

To make the blush look natural on the skin, use the stick to draw small strokes on the "apples" of the cheeks, and then smudge them with your fingers into a haze.

Blush can also be used as an eye shadow on mobile eyelids. To make them last longer and not roll, pre-spread the eyeshadow base on the skin of the eyelids.

L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick

L'Absolu Rouge lipstick is the brand's iconic product. This spring, the collection has been replenished with new limited shades in pink and brown. The products not only give the lips color and light shine, but also care for delicate skin, moisturizing and softening it. Thanks to its creamy texture, the lipstick spreads easily on the lips, but does not spread, so you can use it without a pencil.
