Beauty Editors Melanie Morris and Donna Fitzpatrick also joined the gathering.

Lanc’me gave free rein to make-up artist Lisa Eldridge to create 14 new shades for the new collection. ?I wanted to create a collection of extremely pure shades that irresistibly attract the eye and the imagination,? explained Eldridge. ?I also made sure that each colour family was well represented, with perfect nudes, intense reds, deep raspberries, punchy oranges and simple yet vibrant pinks.?

The result is a range of 36 shades, with either a sheer, cream or matte texture finish, each one is nestled inside a new tube, a tribute to the jewel cases created by Armand Petitjean.
