With Café Bônheur, Lancôme highlights the Parisian elegance and the Spring spirit by unveiling a make-up line that features a range of soft, light shades and dazzling, alluring glitter. The collection features limited-edition products with chic packaging inspired by the colourful caning of the legendary chairs that line the cafés and bistros in Paris.
Lancôme | Le Monochromatique Café Bônheur (€30,50/ 3,8g)
There are five limited-edition shades in this collection:
01 Les Jours Heureux
02 Rose A L’Eau
03 Rose Passion
04 Oui Mais Non
05 Rouge A La Folie
The shades are really beautiful, they can be used on eyelids, cheeks and lips (I don’t know how they look as lipstick, I haven’t tried since I don’t like the feel of powdery makeup on my lips).
The shades can be used dry and wet (when used wet, the shades are more pigmented) with a brush or only the fingers.
The formula is very comfortable (even for sensitive eyes), it doesn’t crease and stays put all day ( especially on top of primer). You can build the color up however, no matter how you apply it never comes across as too much or too bold.
The colours are very vibrant in the packaging but apply a lot more subtly with a natural finish.
The packaging is very travel-friendly.
Lancôme | Blush In Capitals 01 Je M’Appelle Rose (€48,00/ 12g)
This pink and orange patterned container is made of glass and looks so lovely. It can be reused and I can’t wait to store my precious jewellery pieces inside it.
The shades of the capitals are: pink, orange, brown and white.
The finish is like a glowy flush of colour.
Not very pigmented however it looks very pretty and blends beautifully.
Looks very good on the eyelids, too.
I prefer to use it as a highlighter on top of a more pigmented blush or bronzer.
Lancôme | Teint Idole Ultra Wear Stick (€41,00/ 9g)
I love the blush sticks!
There are two limited-edition blushes in this collection:
208 Rose La-La!
308 Pêche La-La!
They have a very creamy and comfortable formula.
The shades can be mixed and matched; also, they can be used as blush, lipstick or creamy eyeshadow.
They are not very pigmented, the finish is natural like healthy looking skin.
Lancôme | L’Absolu Rouge Café Bonheur (€33,50/ 3,4g)
There are four limited-edition lipsticks in this collection:
125 Adorable Détestable – sheer finish
130 Humeur Nude – sheer finish
135 Embrassons Nous – matte finish
140 Merci Beaucoup – top coat
All of the lipsticks have a very creamy and comfortable formula that doesn’t dry out the lips. The matte lipstick stays put for many hours; the sheer lipsticks are not very resistant (maybe 2 hours without eating and drinking in between).
The formula doubles as a lip balm to give the lips hydration and protect them from external aggressors. It can be used on its own for a glossy, balmy look or it can be applied as a top coat over the matte lipstick (or any other favourite lipstick).
Lancôme | Les Vernis Café Bonheur (€22,50/ 10ml)
There are two limited-edition shades in this collection:
110 Oh Mes Pailletes
120 Rose Café
Creamy and long lasting formula (5 to 7 days with base and top coat).
110 Oh Mes Pailletes is a transparent formula that contains rosy and silvery glitter. the nail polish can be used on its own or on top of another shade.
