Emma Watson will be making a public appearance at 4.30pm tomorrow (10th February) in Selfridges, Oxford Street to launch the new Lancôme Rouge in Love collection. I think Emma is a great choice as the face for Lancôme and I'm certainly interested in the new range of lipsticks, but it's tricky to know exactly who the PA is going to appeal to. Of course, it's wrong of me to assume that Harry Potter fans can't be fans of makeup too and I suppose a younger face is likely to introduce a whole new generation to the brand. I'd probably be making my way to the counter after the crowds had died down to take a look at the new lipsticks and nail colours but that's because I'm notoriously rubbish at shopping in crowds!
There are 24 lipstick in the Rouge in Love collection which are divided into 3 colour groups: Jolis Matins - light, sheer, easy to wear shades, Boudoir Time - punchy colours with silvery and white pearl particles and Tonight is My Night - seductive shades infused with golden pearl particles for an intense shine.

I don't know if this is revealing more that I ought to but of the 24 shades, the 2 that I am most drawn to are Midnight Rose (#377N) and Rose Sulfureuse (#379N) both from the 'Tonight is My Night' colour family. I love the look of Violette Coquette (#381B) too, a vibrant violet colour, I'm not sure that I'm bold enough to carry it off though. I looked for the shade Delicate Lace (#217M) that Charleston Girl blogged about but couldn't spot it, so I'm unsure if we have a different selection of shades to the US release.
The Vernis in Love nail colours share the same groupings as the lipsticks and there are 20 shades altogether, ranging from milky nudes to striking brights. They promise fade-resistance, gloss shine colour. If these have the same formula as the nail varnishes from the 29, Saint Honoré collection I will be a very happy lady as these are one of the few formulas that will last on my crummy nails! I have my eye on Aquamarine (#501B).
The Rouge in Love collection is currently exclusive to Selfridges (and online from the Lancôme website) but will be available nationwide from 1st April. The lipsticks are priced £21 and nail varnishes £12.
