Lancome’s summer color collections have been the same for years: shimmery shades of bronze for eyes and face paired with shimmer lips. Well, here we go again. Oh, except this time there are more “minerals”.

FACE: I like the Tropiques Minerale Smoothing Pressed Bronzer in Natural Sunkiss. It is a bronzer that works for light to medium skintones. Lancome’s market of bronzers was really missing out there. There is a Tropiques Mineral Loose Bronzer in Natural Ambre. This is a pretty shade but more “orangey”, excuse me “bronze”. Both go for $38.50. There is a Blush Subtil Powder Blush in Botanic Glow, a sheer peachy bronze. This retails for $29.50.

LIPS & NAILS: There are 6 Juicy Tubes Pure. These are the Juicy Tubes that you love but with “minerals”. The shades are pretty sheer and shimmery. A few worth noting are Bare Honey, a super pale gold shimmer, and Rose Water, a barely there pink. These go for $18. There are 4 Colour Fever Sheer Color Lipsticks. All are in sheer, natural tones of pink, , nude, and bronze. These retail for $25 and are a nice “smooth” formula. Le Lipstique Lip Liner in Sheer Nude has been relaunched. It goes for $23. There is a Le Vernis Nail Color in Exotique Kiss, this is a coral-ish pink shimmer. It goes for $18.

EYES: There are 3 Sensational Effects Eyeshadow Quads. There is Coral Paradise with shades of brown, gold, and coral. There is Safari Escapade which is about the same except with a green shade instead of coral. There is Bronze Midnight which has various warm precious metal shades. These come in a pretty and fancy compact and retail for $44. There are 2 Le Crayon Khol Kajal Eyeliner Pencils. This is a soft and easy to use formula. There is Midnight Glimmer which is a deep antique gold shimmer. This is a nice alternative to black. There is Gold Blaze which is a yellow gold shimmer. I like both of these and they retail for $23.50.

Overall the collection is “friendly” because it is netural. Many of the shades will work with any hair color or eye color. I would say that Coral Paradise would really make blue eyes pop and that Safari Escapade would look amazing with brown and hazel eyes. All eyes could benefit from Bronze Midnight (this is a kinder smokier eye for all skintones). I’m not going to rush out and buy any of this stuff. I’m interested in the bronzer but currently I am happy with Maybelline Mineral Wear products and boy are they cheaper.
