Lancôme launches a collab with the Louvre Museum

Luxury cosmetics brand Lancôme has teamed up with the Louvre Museum to launch a collection of cosmetics. The aim of this project is to create a dialogue between art and beauty, highlighting female icons from all eras and cultures.


The beauty of women in art is a real source of inspiration for the world of fashion and cosmetics. And it would seem that Lancôme’s collaboration with the Louvre Museum for its new collection is the perfect embodiment of this ideal.


This six-piece limited edition collection includes some of the brand’s current bestsellers, as well as new products, all presented in packaging inspired by the Louvre. The famous Advanced Génifique serum is presented in a reimagined bottle inspired by the goddess Hygie.



Ancient Muses of the Louvre

Each of the four shades of L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte lipstick is presented in packaging that refers to a muse from the Louvre: the Sleeping Hermaphrodite, Diane de Gabies, the Echo Nymph and the Scorpion Nymph.


The Richelieu Wing eyeshadow palette stands out with its five shimmering new shades, all linked by a relief representing the sculpture of the Greek poet Corine. The shadows themselves are inspired by the lights reflected in the Louvre’s Richelieu Gallery, each named after a different area: Richelieu Galerie Lumière (a muted gold tone), Cour Carrée Cuivre Lumière (rusty bronze), Cour Marly Marbre (a two-tone swirl of white and yellow gold) and Palais Royal Rose (dusty pink gold). The only non-neutral pigment (a cool-toned, shimmering emerald green) is named after the Cour Puget, a ceiling window overlooking the plant-filled courtyard and home to garden sculptures dating from the 17th and 18th centuries.
