My top picks at Maison Lancome, Mumbai

Maison Lancôme is Lancôme’s flagship India store at Palladium, Mumbai and only the second after Shanghai in the world.  I am skipping the scenic shots of the chandelier and gold encased serum bar to focus on the products I liked. But you can see the pretty chandelier when you visit – it gives the store a lovely luxe feel. There’s a lot happening at Lancôme – the most exciting will be the launch of their cushion foundation later this year in India (more on cushion foundations soon). lancome precious oils Facial oils are having their moment in the sun, in skin care. Absolue Precious oils are a mix of oils led by Lancôme’s signature rose essential oil . For best results use before serum. lancome tresor The latest version of Tresor is La Nuit Tresor  – a heady mix of vanilla, musk and orchid. This is deep and strong but very feminine. As the name suggests – best at midnight. To be launched in stores this June LANCOME COMPACTS The compact foundations in mattifying  for long wear and brightening finishes for dark spots are worth checking out. I am stocked on foundation so these will have to wait ☺ LANCOME LIPS Lancôme’s best kept secret are their lipsticks and nail polishes. L’Absolue Rouge lipsticks have proxylane so your lips always look full and hydrated. I like their colors, which are fresh and young. I got myself Rose Comtesse, a coral pink from the new collection because I am a creature of habit but Rose Amnesia is the hot trending shade – it’s a mix of pink and nude, which I may just have to go back for. geeta and stafford
