I was unable to get downtown for Fashion Focus Chicago this year, but for you Lancome lovers in the Chicago metro area here is a bit of cool news:
In celebration of the Fashion Focus sponsorship, Lancôme will unveil a special makeup collection called The Fashion Focus Backstage Beauty Collection available exclusively at select Chicago Macy's locations beginning September 20th until October 31st. A portion of the proceeds from the collection will benefit The Chicago Fashion Incubator (CFI), a fashion program that supports six emerging Chicago-based designers. CFI is a part of the Mayor’s Fashion Initiative, which supports and promotes fashion designers living and working in Chicago through events, seminars and city programs.
The Fashion Focus Backstage Beauty Collection was inspired by the women who walk the Magnificent Mile every day and features a beautiful range of chic and wearable naturals hand-picked by Lancôme’s Alex Sanchez. Products include: NEW! Color Design Palette in Golden Glitz $42.00, Color Design Blush in Freeze Frame $27.00, Color Fever Shine Lipstick in Femme Fire $25.00, Color Fever Gloss in Hotness $23.00, Artliner in Noir $28.00, Le Crayon Khol in Black Coffee $23.50, Hypnôse Mascara in Black $24.00, Blending Shadow Brush # 17 $26.00.
The following Macy’s locations will carry the collection: State Street, Water Tower, Old Orchard, and Woodfield.
You can view some photos and swatches of the collection here. I am going to Woodfield Monday and am tempted to pick up the palette and lipstick!
