Pretty Shiny Sparkly & Lancôme House of Color

It’s no secret that I’m a girly-girl lover of pink. Pink is the color of my soul, and definitely the color of the blood running through my veins. So it’s only natural that when my makeup obsession collides with pink creating a gorgeous shimmering luxurious explosion of pink…one should celebrate, yes? I’m so delighted, and excited to finally be able to tell you about a fabulous collaboration I had been working on…with Lancôme!! When Lancôme asked me to create a video and post using their new Color Design 5 Pan palette in, appropriately, Pink Envy, as inspiration, I instantly knew I what to do: an outfit post! Duh. And, flinging open the door to my tiny, cramped closet, I knew I had only one problem: what shade of pink to wear? It became clear that I own every shade of pink the spectrum allows. Check out this video that Lancôme and I created for the Color Design 5 Pan palette launch:

    You rock. Would love for you to do a post about the "story" behind this. Did you film the video? Did they? Did you do your won Make-up? Did they? How did you happen upon such a cool gig? I especially like the script!

    You look stunning in that F21 dress. As you know, the shoes aren't my favs but they are really perfect with this outfit.

      Thanks for your sweet comment Shelley. The background post idea is a great idea, I will check with them to make sure they're okay with it and maybe write a quick one up about how it came to be. We'll see!

    very lovely outfit! Looks perfect on you. The dress, the necklace, the bag – can't decide which is my fav'!

    I adore your lacey dress, its so pretty and perfect for spring summer. Your make up and hair look beautiful, fabulous palette. The eyeshadow looks the perfect mix of shine without being too 'in your face'. Great stuff!

    Very pretty outfit! I love the way your eye make-up looks. What cool opportunity to be working with Lancome on this!

      I couldn't be more excited to have been personally selected by such a reputable name. And since I love cosmetics almost as much as I love clothes, it was truly a thrill! Thanks Rachael for your sweet comment!

    I love the dress – I am completely lace obsessed right now! The nail polish & necklace are equally amazing with that outfit…LOVE!!

      Thank you! It had kind of worn off in the humidity by the time we were done filming and photographing, but that's because I definitely didn't put enough on in the first place, and I had put it on first thing in the morning and this was late afternoon!

    The pics are beautiful! I love the romantic dress with the soft lighting.
    The eyeshadow looks amazing too. It has the perfect amount of shimmer.

      The shimmer has me going gaga…no sparkles, just shimmer, which can be appropriate for work or play.

    Pink. Pink. Pink! I love it! I think pink is the only shade in my wardrobe because there are so many hues that can express different emotions. I like how the soft Lancome eyes make your coral lips stand out, yet it's all super airy.

    • 05.26.2011 / 8:22 pm

      Thanks chelsea! I love that you love pink. We can't get enough of it, can we?!

  11. 05.24.2011 / 9:08 am

    I think one of my favorite things about these videos is hearing everyone's voices! I love the palette the picked for you– couldn't have picked a more appropriate one!

    Congratulations on this collaboration, Kristina! Lancome shadows are some of my favorite, especially, "Pink Carpet", which, if it's still around, you should definitely check out. Pink, pink, PINK!

    P.S. Your hair and makeup look amazing.

  24. 05.25.2011 / 1:18 am

    I love the close up of the color on your eye, it looks great on you! I can see what your saying about the shade being shimmery not sparkly. Very pretty as is the dress your wearing… great job 🙂

  25. 05.25.2011 / 8:43 am

    You're beautiful love! I'm totally in love with everything you've done from the hair to the makeup to the look! Work it girlfriend!

    • 05.26.2011 / 8:26 pm

      Aww, thanks Xtina! It was definitely a production, and a bit stressing at first, but ultimately we had fun with it and celebrated after with some much-deserved drinks & sushi. 🙂

  26. 05.25.2011 / 10:50 am

    Cute video. I definitely am not a girly girl…but on occasion I am… lol

  27. 05.25.2011 / 11:01 am

    What a wonderful collaboration! I certainly wouldn't have watched a make-up commercial on purpose had it not had your name on it, but now I've bookmarked the nearest stores. Win, win.

    …rocker chic is a fabulous thing!
