In Love with Lancome

Ireland’s beauties and beauty experts gathered for an early toast to Christmas and a special preview of Lancôme’s Spring Collection, ‘In Love’ at The Shelbourne Hotel, St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2.

Pop shades drawn from street-art murals and vibrant tones of nature flirting with an urban spirit are at the forefront of the collection. Vibrant shades inspired by the light of spring (neon pink and coral predominate, complemented by turquoise and violet) contrast with the luminous pastels of urban nature in abundance (rose petal, almond green). 

Guests on the night included Ireland’s top RTE star Kathryn Thomas, who has travelled the length and breadth of Ireland in the past week with Operation Transformation duties, and who’ll be back fronting The Voice in the near future. TV3’s Karen Koster, spoke about being busy planning her June 2013 wedding, whilst RTE’s Today presenter Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh, caught up with her close friend and former co-presenter Trevor Keegan. 

Triona McCarthy was glowing as she displayed her beautiful baby bump and was joined by partner William White. Also there were Irish fashion designer Joanne Hynes, who gave birth only nine weeks ago, Catherine Allason of Quintessentially Lifestyle, Darren Kennedy and Marissa Carter.

The Lancôme Spring ‘In Love’ Collection will be available at select Lancôme department stores, from 3rd January 2013.
