Ah, French girls. There’s just something about them we can’t help but envy — a je ne sais quoi if you will. Even on a no-makeup day or a rushed morning, these Parisian ladies always look so put together and polished. And since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we American gals take whatever French-inspired tips and products we can get our hands on. So you can imagine the commotion that was created when our friends at Lancôme sent us one of their latest (and prettiest) beauty launches, inspired by the Parisian princesses we admire so much: Lancôme My Parisian Cream Blush. Once we fill you in on the magic behind this lovely little rouge, you’ll understand why we can’t get enough.
Let’s be real. We’re busy girls with things to do and people to see. So, needless to say, any beauty product that’s going to help us get out the door in minutes is a winner in our book. This cream-based blush gives you a pop of color in just two easy steps. All you have to do is swipe, blend and you’re good to go about your business. Can you say merci beaucoup?
Blush is one of the products that should last the longest in your makeup arsenal. Not because you shouldn’t be wearing it every day, but because it should be pigmented enough to be applied in small doses. The key is to make it look natural and subtle. Trust us when we say you don’t want to be suffocating your face with cakey blush! This rouge is the perfect fit for our cheeks, as it’s ultra-pigmented and provides a radiant pop of instant color. So don’t worry about parting ways with this little number anytime soon.
OK, we know this isn’t really a beauty benefit, but we just can’t get over this compact. The ultra-feminine illustration of a cute Parisian holding a handful of pastel-colored balloons is enough to make our hearts melt a little. What can we say? We’re suckers for a pretty picture.
