At the centre of the beautiful Christmas collection are the Ombre Hypnose Mono eyeshadows (€25), which come in three fabulous shades - golden taupe, golden bronze and golden garnet.

They are housed in a glittering jewel-like case for an addition bit of bling, making them ideal stocking fillers.

The shadows don't disappoint, they apply like a dream, leaving a sparkling veil over eyelids which lasts through the night.

If that isn't enough sparkle for you, then the Ombre Les Paillettes aux Yeux (€24.50), a shimmering loose powder, could be just what you need. This pale pinky-peach powder gives eyes an brightening effect, I've been using it on the centre of the eyelid on a smokey eye to add a three-dimensional look.

What could be more classic than a red lip at Christmas and the new L'Absolu Rouge lipstick in Rubis Exquis (€25.41) is infused with coppery pearl to add luminosity to the lips.

Take a look at some pics of the range below.

Shimmering loose powder to apply directly to lids. The formula instantly adheres to skin; its mother of pearl leaves an incredible shimmer and yet extremely refined veil over lids. Lancôme Les Paillettes aux Yeux can be used alone or on top of eyeshadow to accentuate a glowy effect. All shades can be combined tone-on-tone for a sophisticated look, or played in contrasting shades.
