Makeup artist and Lancome cosmetics designer Gucci Westman decided to have a little fun with the Autumn/Winter 2007 Lancome collection. Called Mystery Game, it consists of art deco beauty shades, surprising shapes and tastes all inspired by the Orient Express. You'll be hearing about the products as I do, but for now, I've at least had the chance to check out the fabulous new Baume Baiser Rose Marshmallow Lip Balm ($25). I'm in love!
This is one of the coolest lip balms I have yet to encounter. It's a solid, puddy textured balm—not an ointment or a gel—that is housed in a crimson pot. When opened, you see a light pink, shiny and smooth dome that looks very much like this Laura Geller Cheek Sweep .
It's really hydrating and soothing, but the best part of all is the smell. Think rose meets beachy coconut meets sweet marshmallow! (Come to think of it, the texture of the balm has that elastic marshmallow quality to it.) I have a feeling this product is going to be a major hit. I couldn't stop talking about it all weekend long!
