22nd February 2019, Lancôme is pleased to announce the appointment of American actress, singer, and fashion authority Zendaya Coleman as the new face of the brand.

At age 22, Zendaya becomes part of the stellar cast of Lancôme ambassadors, adding her unique and diverse vision to the esteemed French luxury house of beauty. “It’s a huge honour to be able to represent a brand like Lancôme and join such an incredible line-up of iconic women,” says Zendaya.

Françoise Lehmann, Lancôme International President adds: “We look forward to a joyous future with Zendaya, whose charisma, influence in film, music and fashion is undoubted.  Zendaya brings a youthful and a unique approach to beauty that perfectly complements Lancôme’s vision and creativity.”

A Perfect Partnership

With a social media following of more than 54 million, Zendaya has become one of the most influential and prominent names in the industry.

She is a role model for her generation and she uses her voice to promote education and positivity.

At the same time, Zendaya’s involvement with charitable causes ties in with Lancome’s philanthropic commitment as well.

Joining the Lancôme stellar group of ambassadors of Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Isabella Rossellini, Penelope Cruz, Lupita Nyong’o, Lily Collins and Taylor Hill, Zendaya’s irresistible appeal and strong identity – attributes she shares with the other ambassadors – is indicative of a happy, bright and shining future within the Lancôme family. 



So a couple of weeks ago I was invited to the unveiling of the newest foundation from Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude in the Ice Bar, Intercontinental Hotel,Dublin.

Designed for the woman who wants a “no makeup” look and needs an effective formula that works hard from dawn to dusk.

Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude boasts a wide range of shades (40), with light matte coverage for up to 24 hours and a result that looks like your own skin

I have been trialing Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude for the last couple of weeks since The launch in the shade 03 and have loved the light coverage and although the finish is matte, it’s by no means cakey or flaky and I was surprised it even suits my dry skin and it doesn’t look heavy at all.

I have put it through it’s paces and I loved how it looked at the end of the day as much as I did when I first applied it.

Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude RRP: €40 and is available from Lancôme retailers now.

Review: Lancôme Advanced Génefique Sensitive 

The verdict is in! It’s a big fat yes from me! I have completed my Advanced Génefique Sensitive treatment from Lancôme and I’m converted. 

A one month course of treatment with a fresh-activated formula that soothes the skin, stimulates it’s youthful properties and strengthens it when sensitive thanks to a capsule that contains antioxidants that are 99% pure which the user releases when she opens the bottle to create a boosted Youth Activating Serum for heightened efficacy. This daring goal resonates with the values Génefique has embraced for the last 8 years: a universal serum, a timeless serum, a holistic serum. Simply put: an iconic product. Bold and universal: these characteristics have always been at the heart of Lancôme’s ongoing efforts to support all women in the quest for beauty and well-being.

We have all had bad skin days, our complexion is affected by climate, diet,stress,air pollution,medication, hormones etc. And there’s nothing worse when your skin is not looking good, we end up wearing more make up to distract from the blemishes which can make it look worse. That’s why I was delighted to be given a bottle of this iconic Advanced Génefique Sensitive as I’ve found my skin has been affected by stress of house-hunting and juggling too much.  

This blend of carefully selected ingredients, a new soothing probiotic fraction, the lactobacillus, an antioxidant complex consisting of Vitamin E and ferulic acid which is only activated when released from the ampule into the bottle, aims to target and remedy the following skin complaints women experience when they are having a bad skin day: 

  • Dryness
  • Itching
  • Burning sensation 
  • Skin discomfort 

The exciting prospect of releasing the active antioxidants with just a twist of the cap was fascinating to do and my daughter filmed me mixing it. ​​​​​​

​​Overall I have found my complexion looks more even and my dry patchy areas have become less troublesome. As my skin is more even in texture make up application is quicker as I now have to spend less time concealing. 

​So, if you feel like your skin needs a bit of tlc but you don’t have time for facials treat yourself to a bottle of Lancôme Advanced Génefique Sensitive from any Lancôme counter. 

It’s priced at €73 

Maybe a nice surprise for someone’s birthday or stocking filler at Christmas.

Where: MET Gala 2017, New York. NY

Who: Taylor Hill 

Makeup By: Patrick Ta

“The Met is by far my favourite red carpet of the season because it’s a chance where everyone is not afraid to take a risk and you get to see the most extravagant couture gowns that you don’t normally see on a regular red carpet. When Taylor showed me a picture of her dress I knew what I wanted to do and she knew what she wanted to do so it wasn’t difficult to come to an agreement! The gown is a gorgeous Carolina Herrera burgundy gown so we wanted to do a sultry sexy burgundy Smokey eye to compliment the gown!”

LA NUIT TRÉSOR – A New Eau de Parfum Celebrating Passion

Created by two illustrious names in French perfumery, Christophe Raynaud and Amandine Clerc Marie, La Nuit Trésor Eau de Parfum is a captivating elixir constructed around a hypnotic black Rose given a discreet erotic twist by vanilla Orchid, the iconic fragrance of women in love. With La Nuit Trésor L’Eau de Parfum Caresse, the two perfumers invented a new love potion as sensual as it is delicate: a tender heart of fresh, textured Rose essence caressed by white Musks and intertwined with a creamy Tonka Bean accord. A scent with smooth, delicious aromas, subtly highlighted within the diamond bottle of Trésor La Nuit, whose neck is adorned with a just-blossomed rose.
A new film reinvents the Trésor legend

In 2015, Lancôme unveiled a new facet of Trésor with La Nuit Trésor Eau de Parfum, a captivating and hypnotic variation of the rose, the flower that inspired the original fragrance, preciously encased in a black diamond bottle. For the second olfactory chapter of this reinvented saga, Trésor La Nuit Eau de Parfum Caresse, Lancôme, grand perfumer since 1935, chose the English director Johnny Green to tell the story of an ultra-contemporary facet of the romantic legend of Trésor. In this original film, model Noah Mills stars alongside the Trésor heroine since 2010: actress and Lancôme ambassadress Penélope Cruz.

iving each day as if it were the first
Paris. An enamoured couple exchanges loving gestures, intimately sharing happiness that nothing can defeat. In the dead of night, the woman silently sneaks out of their large flat. She drives towards some unknown destination, a glow of anticipation in her eyes. A motorcycle races past her and a game begins. Do they know each other or is this by chance? The engines vroom and the tyres squeal. They goad each other on in a car chase towards a mysterious horizon. What are they doing? Where are they going?
When she enters the lobby of a luxury hotel, the concierge slips a key into her hands. It was all planned in advance. A lift rises and the tension of desire becomes tangible. She walks down a hallway, her key to unlock the door. A man is waiting for her. Arms embrace and bodies reunite. It is the same man she left in the bedroom of the spacious flat. He is the one who followed her through the sleepy Parisian streets. He is the man she loves and who loves her. It is a delicious lover’s game. A way to leave each other only to experience the joy of meeting again, as if for the first time, with the same emotion and desire. Every day and forevermore.
In a stroboscopic succession of shadows and flashes of light, Johnny Green builds up the tension with breath-taking suspense, underlined, after a few notes of Trésor’s original anthem, by the sensually bewitching track from the Australian group Movement, “Ivory”, whose lyrics were specially rewritten for the film. Green’s camera reveals the sublime Penélope Cruz, the perfect incarnation of a modern woman in love. In control of her destiny, she is moved by the desire to make every day of love like the first, in a perfectly equal relationship that offers the freedom of being oneself, while being part of a whole: 1+1=3, the new equation of a couple, a story captured through the lense of the photographer Nico Bustos.



Penélope Cruz, the incarnation of confident and modern femininity
From her first impetuous steps in front of Bigas Luna’s camera in 1992, with each and every film and role that the Spanish actress has taken on, she has continuously proven that a career is not simply based on talent or luck. Being an actress is about being chosen, but also about making choices. Not waiting for an outstretched hand, but inciting desire and never resting on one’s laurels, whether they take the form of an Oscar, of a Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival or of a Goya for Best Actress. Drama, comedy, suspense, action, fantasy/thriller, westerns… As curious and perfectionist in Europe as she is in Hollywood, Penélope Cruz has continuously challenged herself with new emotions and universes, refusing to make the same choices over and over again and even co-produced one her last movie Mama. From Pirates of the Caribbean to Vicky Cristina Barcelona, from Broken Embraces to Nine or Volver and so many other masterpieces, in the eyes of the world, Pedro Almodovar’s muse represents femininity that is strong yet sensitive, passionate yet intelligent, sublime yet accessible.
The keys to mysterious beauty
Penélope Cruz’s make-up for the La Nuit Trésor film was done by Pablo Iglesias, her long-time personal make-up artist both for her films and her collaboration with Lancôme. To perfectly yet subtly enhance her complexion, he used the make-up base La Base Pro Hydra Glow, Teint Idole shade 03, Poudre Majeur Excellence shade 01, Belle de Teint shade 04 and Blush Subtil shade 011.
Her eyes are shrouded in mystery with Hypnôse Palette D02 and intensified by Crayon Khôl Noir, Grandiôse Liner Noir, Grandiôse Noir mascara and Sourcils Styler Brown.

On her lips, a touch of L’Absolu Rouge Poème Mat is set off with Juicy Shaker shade 142.

In her neck, the smelling of La Nuit trésor.

La Nuit Tresor (RRP 100ml €88) will be available from all Lancôme counters nationwide from April 2017.
