At this year’s at the MTV Movie Awards, Emma Watson looked very cute – as per usual. As the ambassadress for Lancôme, Watson was adorned with all Lancôme products, expertly applied by Hollywood makeup artist Roz Music. The products used:
Teint Idole Ultra 24H in #230 BUFF W ($44.00)
Nicki’s Take: This formula can be a little heavy for 20-something skin, but it’s great for use under HD-level cameras and lighting.
Blush Subtil in Soft Pink ($30.00, Lancome.com)
Nicki’s Take: Whether or not to buy this product depends upon your level of expertise in applying powder blush! If you are great at it, Blush Subtil is a superb formula, with a long-lasting, well-pigmented, silky formula that lasts several hours. If you are not so great at applying your blush, the long-lasting, highly-pigmented formula may work against you, leaving telltale streaks of your inexpertise.
Rouge in Love in Lasting Kiss ($25.00, Lancome.com)
Nicki’s Take: On the one hand, this lipstick is amazing in three ways: Color, texture, and applicability. The color, a soft mauve, best complements those with fair to medium skin tones. It looks amazing with a strong eye, as worn on Emma. The texture and applicability are also amazing – light but still highly pigmented, and easy to apply straight from the tube. On the other hand, I’m not personally a fan of how Lancôme lipsticks taste. I suspect this is because the company sells amazing-tasting Juicy Tubes lip gloss, of which a clear coat can be applied over top for a tasty, glossy effect.
4-Color Design Palette in Mint Jolie ($49.00)
Hypnose Doll Lashes ($26.00, Lancome.com)
Though someone as cute as Emma Watson looks good in all of these products, our favorite pick for us everyday mortals is the Rouge in Love in Lasting Kiss lipstick, especially layered underneath a tasty lip gloss. If you’re the modern, trendy type, we also recommend the 4-Color Design Palette in Mint Jolie. On the other hand, if you also have an expert hand when it comes to blush, we like the Blush Subtil in Soft Pink.
