Lancome Spring 2008: L.U.C.I by Gucci Westman

In her final spring collection for Lancôme, Gucci Westman has created a beach-inspired iridescent color collection called L.U.C.I. (Luminous Colorless Color Intelligence) based on a Lancôme patented invention that is able to interpret particles of iridescent color and incorporate them into makeup products.

Sounds impressive, no?

Lancome LUCI Spring 2008

The packaging here looks amazing—so sleek and cool—it’s kind of a bummer that this is Gucci’s last collection with Lancôme.

Here’s what we’ll see in this collection:

L.U.C.I Eyes – Light Color in Motion Eye Shadow Duo
A stunning shell-shaped eye shadow compact holds two shadows, a beautiful bronze and a photonic shade. Use the photonic shadow over the bronze color to create a unique third shade. Or use the photonic shade on its own to create a luminous look. Available in Ray of Apricot Light. Suggested Retail Price: $45.00

Photonic – Illuminating Powder Brush Face
This glowing, translucent photonic loose powder can be used to sculpt the face or add a sheer veil of radiance. Available in Ray of Apricot Light. Suggested Retail Price: $40.00

Ombre Glacée – Cooling Gel Illuminator Eyes
This creamy, cooling eye shadow can be used alone or blended over another color to highlight and brighten the eye area. Apply the light texture over your eyelid and up to the brow bone or experiment by bringing it from the eye down to the cheekbone to create a beautiful aura that lights up the face. Available in Chameleon, Morning Pearl and Sunrise. Suggested Retail Price: $22.00

Color Fever Gloss – Sensual Vibrant Lipshine
Make a statement and use the photonic gloss as a topcoat over lipstick or one of the two new shades of Color Fever Gloss to transform shades into intense, brilliant colors. Available in Sunray (photonic shade), Seashell and Rainbow. Suggested Retail Price: $23.00

Color Fever Shine – Sensual Sheer Color. Vibrant Shine.
Revamp your lips with two new lipsticks. Use the photonic shade by itself for a reflective lilac effect or place over the deep rasberry shade for a dazzling, luminous result. Available in Luminous (photonic shade) and Desert Pink. Suggested Retail Price: $25.00

Traceur Design –Illuminating Long-Lasting Eyeliner Soft Brush
An eye liner with photonic lilac reflections to line the eyes and make them sparkle. Available in: Ray of Purple Light. Suggested Retail Price: $20.00

You know as well as we do that the Photonic Illuminating Brush Face in Ray of Apricot Light will have a permanent home in our Makeup Bag.

The Lancôme Spring 2008 L.U.C.I Collection by Gucci Westman will be available beginning January 2008 at, specialty stores, the four Lancôme boutiques and counters nationwide.

  • The packaging is indeed beautiful, and looks even better irl than on the photos. The colors are wonderfully luminescent and the seashell shadow is amazing. I have some close-ups of the products if you are intrested :) (

  • I love Westman’s cosmetics and these new items, in particular. I am saddened that I don’t have these items yet, I have to include them in my Santa Wish List, I guess.


  • i want that face brush!!! I wonder what Lancome is going to about their beloved designer series lip sticks… I alone can account for buying 4 tubes of ps kiss as well as the proenza pink……………

  • It is interesting and wonderful at the same time that companies are starting to such ornamental packaging for makeup. It is about time Lancome is aware of this!

    Thanks for a great post!

  • Aww, why is Gucci going?? She’s amazing!
