Lancôme’s Spring 2008 Collection L.U.C.I (Luminescent Colorless Color Intelligence) is receiving a great deal of attention due to it’s futuristic ‘Photonic’ technology – white, completely pigment-free makeup, which transforms into a veil of iridescent, shimmering colour depending on the angle and the light.
L.U.C.I colours are divided into two categories: rays of light with warm tones (Ray of Pink Light and Ray of Apricot Light) and cooler tones (Ray of Green Light and Ray of Purple Light). Colours will look pastel on a fair skin and appear deeper and more intense on a darker skin. The result is makeup that is in harmony with each wearer’s skin tone.
A stunning eyeshadow duo encased in a futuristic seashell. The white L.U.C.I eyeshadows transform upon contact with the skin and become a transparent veil of colored lights, which diffuses in a myriad of tones: from apricot to pink, from purple to green.
Available in Ray of Green Light, Ray of Purple Light and Ray of Apricot Light
