For any beauty-obsessed bookworms out there, Lancôme and Olympia Le-Tan have just released a coveted makeup collection that you’ll be racing to get your hands on for both your beauty shelf, and your book shelf.
Best know for her intricate handbags inspired by classic literature, French fashion and accessories designer, Olympia Le-Tan, has teamed up with the beauty power house of Lancôme to bring us a limited edition makeup collection that, yes, even includes a palette inside one of her signature minaudière bags — SWOON!
Almost too pretty to use, this super whimsical and feminine collection consists of nail polishes, lipsticks, highlighters, eyeliners and more. We love that Olympia dove deep into the Lancôme archives to re-introduce us to classic shades of the past that are all available now through Lancome.ca and Hudson’s Bay here in Canada.
Step into Olympia’s Wonderland and see below to look at the whole collection:
THE EYE ICONS PALETTE
Perfectly mirroring one of Olympia’s classic clutches, this palette includes lip, cheek, and eye colours but is less than one-tenth of the price.
