Lancôme’s newest collection this autumn season is inspired by the Louvre, the world’s most famous museum.

To celebrate female divinity, this limited edition collection includes female pioneers before us, now immortalised in stone, as well as those who are making waves today.

These statuesque editions have marble white-on-black designs and features five beautiful products for your eyes, lips, and skin that you’ll need in your makeup collection.

Lancôme x Louvre Richelieu Wing color palette for eyes

Lancome X Louvre collection

The colour palette of the Richelieu Wing is inspired by the sculpture of Corine, a Greek poetess who was hailed as an aspirational woman of creative genius.

It combines a smooth, easy-to-blend highlighter with four distinct eyeshadow shades, each named after a different part of the Richelieu wing and its surrounding area. For example, the pink shade of the Royal Palace, the peridot shade of the Cour Puget, and the marble shade of the Cour Marly.

What we love most about this palette, though, is the striking green shade, which can be used as a liner or to add drama to your smoky eye!

In order to truly reflect the beautiful light of the Richelieu Gallery, this palette is also created using a technology designed for more vivid colour pigments and intensified shimmer.

Lancôme x Louvre The Richelieu Wing Palette retails for RM290.

Lancôme x Louvre L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte lipsticks

The L’Absolu Rouge lipsticks are a must-have for those with dry lips due to their soft and creamy texture, which is created by fusing a blend of potent rose extract oils – rosa damscena, rosa centifolia, and 80 white scented petals with anti-ageing benefits.

Each L’Absolu Rouge lipstick has four distinct shades inspired by a female deity to tell their story:

  • Shade 200 French Drama: Inspired by Sleeping Hermaphrodite, this warm pink colour was created to express love’s passion.
  • Shade 274 French Tea: Diane de Gabies, the goddess of the moon, is the muse for this warm-toned, medium orange shade.
