Disclosure: I was sent the Lancome x Emily In Paris Collection for review from L'Oreal Lancome PR. All opinions in this blog post are 100% my own and honest. This post contains affiliate links. I get commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.

PR Sample: BONJOUR! I am so EXCITED to present the NEW Lancome x Emily In Paris Collection to you today! This collection officially dropped December 7th. I think you'll find that its a very romantic and beautiful collection. I'm surely charmed by it all. Things are selling fast. Christmas is approaching. I swatched everything for you below, so that you can make an informed decision! So lets get started with the review and happy holiday shopping!

 Emily In Paris On Netflix

Emily In Paris is a popular television show on the streaming service Netflix. It's a comedy drama created by Darren Star (produced by MTV Entertainment Studios). The first season started October 2, 2020 (10 episodes). It showcases Emily (played by Lily Collins who is also a Lancome Ambassador), who is an American and moves to Paris to provide an American view point to a French marketing team. While she's in Paris, let's just say a lot of things happen. This show has fashion, comedy, drama and explores some beautiful landmarks of Paris, France. 

Lancome has teamed up with this popular tv show to create a must-have beauty collection inspired by Parisian Glamour. "Inspired by the charm of Parisian life, each of the limited-edition makeup, skincare and fragrance items features the red and pink color codes of the show, as well as Emily's heart-shaped and Eiffel Tower bag charm motifs. With everything you need to take your look from fresh, dewy daytime skin to a classic red lipstick at night, the new Lancome x Emily In Paris empowers every woman to achieve French girl beauty - her way. Season 2 is set to premiere December 22, 2021.

 Lancome Instagram Live

Ashley Park, who plays Mindy Chen in the Netflix series, did an Instagram Live on the brand's channel @LancomeOfficial December 6th. It was really informative and I learned some helpful tips. You should apply serum not only to your face & neck, but also to the back of your neck and ears (same goes for sunscreen you guys). Also, instead of applying red lipstick directly to your lips, take your finger and dab the lipstick on your pout. They did some great giveaways, so join in on the fun when a brand does Instagram Live.

Lancome | For The Love Of Paris Advanced Genifique Face Serum

So this is where you should begin with the collection! Always start with great skincare you guys! Skincare is so important. It's the foundation. I can't stress how important it is to find a great cleanser, moisturizer, mask and SERUM. I love serums! After cleansing your skin, serums are great to apply afterwards. They plump, hydrate, smooth out your skin (fine lines and wrinkles), strengthen against aggressors (such as pollution, UV, cold and dry weather). This serum has it all, plus it contains Bifidus Prebiotic. You can read my in-depth review about it here. I'm also loving Lancôme’s newest serum Rénergie H.C.F. Triple Serum. I used Lancome's Advanced Genifique Face Serum right before applying my makeup. You can see how vibrant and plump my skin looks in the pictures below. My makeup also laid beautifully.

Lancome | For The Love Of Paris Eyeshadow Palette

(can be purchased here and here)

There's so much to LOVE about this beautiful palette. I love its puffed heart shape design! It made my heart pitter-patter. Is it Valentine's Day? That's the way this eye shadow palette will make you feel. It contains 12 eye shadows. It's split into three sections: Born In France (for your natural inspired everyday Parisian look featuring nudes and beige shades); Parisian At Heart (the wannabe Parisian look that will help you add a touch of color to your style); and Paris A La Folie (dare to be bold? our boldest color for the perfect Parisian night out). I used a combination of Parisian At Heart and Born In France for my look throughout this post. I swept La Plouc from lid to crease. I then put Paris Is For Lovers in my crease. I dabbed Champere on each lid and inner corners of my eyes. I used a combination of Like Wearing Poetry and Paris Is For Lovers under my lower lashes. The colors are really soft and wearable. You can even use some of the shades as highlighters for your face. This heart shaped palette also has a working mirror.

Lancome | For The Love Of Paris Monsieur Big Mascara 

(Regular - Amazon, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, Harrods, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and here)

(Waterproof - Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue)

I have never tried Lancome's Monsieur Big Mascara. I am SO IMPRESSED! My regular readers know I'm not big on falsies. I prefer a great mascara. I've been using Lancome's Lash Idole Mascara. It is great whenever you want a natural lash. Now Ooh La La!!! Monsieur Big really gives you VOLUME! My lashes are sparse. I lightened the picture below so you can see my lashes. This mascara really makes your lashes seem full. They're lengthened. And they are black! I am truly impressed with this mascara. Lancome states this mascara gives you 12x more volume and up to 24 hours wear. BIG. BOLD. LASHES. Well they've got that right! HaHaHa I love it! There's also a waterproof version. I must get it.

Lancome | For The Love Of Paris L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick

(can be purchased here, here and here)

Whoever is in charge of lipsticks for Lancome ... they make some dreamy ones! The formulas are amazing. I just recently tried their Drama Ink Liquid Lipsticks. They lay so beautifully on the lips. I'm equally impressed with these. Before I show each with you, take a look at the gif I made. I learned this from  Lancome's Instagram Live presentation. To release the lipstick, just press the button (flower) on top of the cap. You can also save and use the cap for other Lancome lipsticks. Isn't that awesome? Very innovative. The lipsticks are available in 3 shades (French Tea, Rouge Pigalle, and Attrape Coeuer). French Tea has a cream formula. Rouge Pigalle and Attrape Coeuer have a matte formula. The color payoff is amazing and each color is buildable on the lips (not that you need it). These lipsticks contain rose extracts (comfort) and hyaluronic acid (moisture and a smooth lipstick application).

Lancome | L'Absolu Rouge | Attrape Coeur (505) | Classic Red

Lancome | For The Love Of Paris Idole Eau De Parfum 

(can be purchased here)

I have now tried ALL of the Lancome Idole Perfumes. I am very finicky about perfumes and I can honestly say I love them ALL. Each has its own personality (Idole - romantic, Idole Intense - sexy, Idole Aura - daytime). Each is different. But all are light and wearable. Click on these links to read my reviews on Idole Intense and Idole Aura. This is the very first one! It has special packaging. I love the picture of the Eiffel Tower, camera and rose. You see these all the time in the Emily In Paris Netflix Series. I'm keeping all of these boxes. The notes for this perfume are Top Notes: Bergamot (Citrus), Juicy Pear, Pink Peppercorn Middle Notes: Rose and Jasmine Bottom Notes: White Musk, Vanilla, Patchouli, Cedarwood

"As the saying goes, you're never fully dressed without perfume. To complete the limited-edition Lancôme x Emily in Paris line up, Idôle Eau de Parfum comes in a new bottle dressed with Emily's famous heart shape and Eiffel Tower bag charm and brings a sense of power and sensuality that captures the exuberant joy of living in the French capital. Sophisticated, yet unapologetically modern, Idôle Eau de Parfum grants those who wear it the unwavering strength to dare to dream bigger. This fresh and clean fragrance is ever evolving throughout the day with bursts of inviting florals, energizing citrus and sultry white musk"

Lancome | Limited Edition Emily in Paris x Lancôme Makeup Pouch

I received this beautiful Lancome Limited Edition Emily In Paris Makeup Bag Pouch. It's a beautiful black patent leather. It has Emily's favorite bag charm on the front. It's a great way to store your makeup when on the go. This is included in the Lancome Forever In Paris Set

Emily's Famous Heart Shape And Eiffel Tower Bag Charm

If you've watched Emily In Paris on Netflix, you will know about the bag charm she keeps attached on her purse. It's a fluffy heart with an Eiffel Tower that says Paris and France on it. One episode gives much commentary about this bag charm. I don't see it for sale on Lancome's website. It was in the PR package. So I'm showing it below. I hope my review helps you in your decision-making. I included a video below that showcases the products. Season 2 of Emily In Paris starts December 22nd on Netflix.
