Lancome La Collection Lollipop – Beauty for a Cause

Lancôme’s La Collection Lollipop was previewed at the Chris Benz presentation during NYFW in September. I got my first glimpse of this charity inspired collection when two of the polishes graced the models’ fingers and toes at the show.

Created to benefit the Lollipop Theater Network, the collection consists of three sets of Color Fever Gloss and Le Vernis in matching shades. Learn more about the Lollipop Theater Network and check out these adorable gloss & polish sets after the jump!

This November, Lancôme will introduce La Collection Lollipop, three limited-edition gloss and nail polish sets created to help raise funds and awareness for the Lollipop Theater Network. This nonprofit organization brings current-run movies to children and teenagers hospitalized due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses. Lancôme ambassador Anne Hathaway, who has made several hospital visits on behalf of Lollipop, brought the organization to Lancôme’s attention and asked if there was anything the brand could do to help support the charity.Each set is packaged in a box donning a piece of artwork created by children in hospitals in New York and California. Inside you’ll find a black velvet pouch containing a lip gloss and nail lacquer. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Lollipop Theater Network. The candy colored collection comes in three yummy flavors; Bon Bon Strawberry, Mademoiselle Grape and Ma Cherie Cherry.

Bon Bon Strawberry is a bright, fun pink creme resembling a high gloss gumball. The polish was well pigmented, covering the nail in just two coats. The matching gloss is a bit sheer so it doesn’t appear as bold on the lips.

Mademoiselle Grape is more of a red plum than grape but just as delicious. It’s not a shade I would normally choose for myself but it’s much more flattering than I expected. The gloss is really well pigmented and I love the doe foot applicator but it didn’t work with my skin tone.
Ma Cherie Cherry is surprisingly my favorite set of the three. I’m not normally a red girl but there’s something about the slight berry undertone that I love in both the polish and the gloss.

La Collection Lollipop sets retail for $35/ea (an $8 savings). The collection is set to launch in November and will be carried exclusively at Nordstrom stores. It is already online at and coming soon to

What do you think Fanatics? Aren’t these sets adorable? I’m such a sucker for packaging that I got excited just looking at them.

    I was just lamenting the other day how I want to find some matching lip and nail colors! Thanks!

    Ooh, you've got me drooling over these already! I'm not much for buying for the packaging, just the coloring, but I just can't resist them! Personally I'm lemming for the red set since I'm kinda going on a pink freeze (and red, believe it or not, looks good on me).

    I like the Bon Bon Strawberry nail polish and lipgloss. I love that the shade is a funky pink and creamy. It really looks good on short nails:)

  5. moonchaii says:

    oooo, I really like the Bon Bon Strawberry set, but I don't like the $35 dollar price tag…that's something I have to think about looooong and hard, especially because I was going to splurge on the Going Green Nubar Collection….

    I love Mademoiselle Grape; the others are too wild for me! :) Thanks for the awesome blog, as usual.

    Bon Bon Strawberry looks amazing! Yum ^^

    LOVE the glosses, not so much the nail colors except for maybe Bon Bon strawberry!

    Hi Michelle:

    I must say these colors are very pink and beautiful looking. Love how they match the nail color with the woman's gloss for the finishing touch. Plus the polish/lip gloss is for a great cause. Red and pink are very pretty and gorgeous nail and lip colors.

    All I can say is I am glad that even though these shades of nail varnish are so awesome looking on your nails and lips, I am so happy someone decided that more colors would be better, LOL Then, what would the guys wear on their toes? ha ha

    ((((((Love Michelle))))

    I don't know which I like the most. I just wish the first gloss was more opaque. Any excuse to buy more makeup and nail polish. This excuse is a good one because it is for charity. I don't have to feel as bad for buying more things I don't need!

    The packaging is cute, and your nails are lovely! It looks like this set is making the rounds to bloggers, as I just saw it reviewed on another blog. The price tag is a lot, even for Lancome.

  12. sparklingpinkgorilla says:

    I don't think the price is that bad- you're getting a lipgloss which usually runs $25 and a polish that runs $18…and it's supporting a good cause. And I'm so glad Lancome sent these out to bloggers so they could get the word out there. Nice to see them adding extra marketing for the cause.

    I think I want to buy them just for the packaging-admitted Francophile.

    I got these when they first showed up on the Nordstrom website and they are really too cute. I love the colors and the packaging.
