As I reported earlier, model Daria Werbowy has created a three-piece makeup collection for Lancôme. But unlike some famous collaborations, this one has a few cool details that make it stand out. First, Daria didn't just sit around choosing pre-made suggestions for color. Instead, she went to Lancôme's laboratory and mixed the pigments herself. Secondly, proceeds from the collection go to a great cause: Centro Espacial Vik Muniz, a children’s art center in Rio de Janeiro.
The three-piece collection launches at Sephora this month, but I have a sneak preview of the collection. Maybe it's because my coloring is similar to Daria's, but I'm excited about it. The chestnut browns of the eye shadow quad ($42) are great for blue-eyed women, and both the lip gloss ($24) and lipstick ($26) are spot-on for the season's bare-faced trend. I haven't been able to play around with these yet — they're not in stores at this point, after all! — but I'll keep you posted on any other news.
