|LancÃ´me’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, LancÃ´me 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. LancÃ´me ambassador Anne Hathaway, who has made several hospital visits on behalf of Lollipop, brought the organization to LancÃ´meâ€™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 Nordstrom.com and coming soon to Lancome-usa.com.
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.
