Lancôme Midnight Roses - 2012 Fall Makeup Collection by Aaron de Mey

In September 2012, Lancôme launched Midnight Roses Color Collection by Aaron de Mey (limited edition) at selected Lancôme Beauty Counters.

Unveiling purple's deepest secrets....
The most enigmatic of all the colors, a sacred and infinitely precious shade, for thousands of year purple has been shrouded in mystery. Today, there are only a handful of people in the world who know how to conjure up authentic purple pigments, extracted from the same shell (Hexaplex trunculus) as the one used by the very first Mediterranean civilisations.
Thanks to colorimetric science, the Lancome Laboratories have succeeded in color-matching the original shade, transposing it into cosmetics thanks to extremely fine new-generation satin-aspect month-of-pearl. Captured in the way, the color of true purple now takes centre stage in the "Midnight Roses" collection.
Playing with gloss and matte effects, it perfectly symbolises all the spellbinding magic of night-time in Paris.

Lancome 001 Moonlight Rose Blush highlighter
Price : SD$70

Like reflected moonbeams dancing on the banks of the Seine... The blush highlighter captures the unique light that bathes Paris at midnight.
Crafted thanks to a new technology combining a high-comfort "marshmallow" texture with an illuminating effect, this extremely fine, light-inflused powder is adorned with an embossed emblematic Lancome rose. The powder feels whisper-soft on application, leaving just a veil of sheer pearly radiance.
