This year, 2015, marks Lancôme’s 80th anniversary. What began in 1935, as a French fragrance house, is now one of the world’s luxury skincare companies. Because Lancôme wants 1010ParkPlace readers to play up our assets and put our best selves forward, Lancôme is giving one lucky 1010ParkPlace reader a gift box full of Lancôme makeup and beauty products valued at over $500.
Lancôme has asked Sandy Linter, legendary makeup artist and Lancôme’s Ambassador at Every Age, to choose her Top 10 Favorite Lancôme products and why she likes them for women over 40.
“MAKEUP GOES A LONG WAY TOWARD HELPING YOU LOOK YOUR BEST,” SAID SANDY. “I LOVE TEACHING WOMEN THE RIGHT STEPS. BRUSHES ARE GREAT TOOLS. THEY’RE ALMOST AS IMPORTANT AS THE MAKEUP ITSELF, SO I’VE INCLUDED A BRUSH IN MY LIST.”
Here are Sandy Linter’s Top 10 Favorite Lancôme products you can win and why she chose them:
AQUATIQUE WATERPROOF EYECOLOUR BASE in Nude: “The eyeshadow base acts as a primer for the eyelid so the eye makeup stays on all day long.”
LE CRAYON KHȎL PENCIL EYELINER in Ebony: “I love this pencil. It doesn’t break when sharpening!”
LONG WEAR CALLIGRAPHY GEL EYELINER in Black Fishnets
DUAL-END LINER & SMUDGER-BRUSH #24: “One side has a small brush I use to apply the gel liner. The other side is a lot wider, but still flat. I use that to soften the gel liner and ease it up in the outer corner of the eye.”
STAR BRONZER, LONG LASTING BRONZING POWDER in #02 Solaire: “This is a color I’ve used on so many different skin tones, except very deep ones. It’s universally easy to wear.”
BLUSH SUBTIL, DELICATE OIL-FREE POWDERED BLUSH in Trésor: “This is another universal color that looks good on most everyone.”
GRANDIȎSE WIDE-ANGLE FAN EFFECT MASCARA in Noir: “Grandiôse mascara debuted a few months ago. I use it on everyone. It’s especially great for women who have fragile or thin lashes that stick together, or may clump, and lashes that aren’t easy to curl. The formulation and the brush separates, lifts and curls. It’s kind of magical. I’ve discovered you don’t need a lash curler with it.”
COLOR DESIGN 5 PAN EYESHADOW PALETTE: “This is more of a daytime shadow. More matte nude and more neutral, so it’s something anyone can use. Use the darkest shade at the bottom of the pan to add on top of the pencil liner, or to add depth in the outer corner of your eye. You can use that shade to deepen any of the shades in that palette. My favorite palettes are Gris Fumee, Showered in Lace, Chocolate Amande, Beige Brûlée and Taupe Craze. If it’s for evening, I’ll layer it over my eyeliner. It gives it a bit more of a pop. You can also use it wet and put that line through your lashes, not under your lashes, and smudge it a bit.”
RÉNERGIE CREAM, ANTI-WRINKLE AND FIRMING TREATMENT: “The treatment creams are truly beneficial. I have been using them since 2008. I never had great skin to begin with, but I often get complimented on my skin, so thank you, Lancôme!”
RÉNERGIZE NIGHT, ANTI-WRINKLE, RESTORING CREAM: “After I clean my face, I use the Régenerie Night. I like the way it makes my skin feel. Firm and not dehydrated. Lancôme’s creams are excellent, and they’re not prohibitively expensive.”
