Mascara-izers of the world, look alive (which is probably easy for you, with all of your inky, perky lashiness): Lancôme has collaborated with Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz on a nine-piece makeup collection...and the mascaras look like this. While the oft-celebrated wands and formulations of the Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz mascaras—Définicils, Hypnôse Star, and Hypnôse Drama, respectively—remain unchanged, the Elbaz-illustrated tubes (with doodles of winks, stars, and rose petals) scream limited-edition ("LIMITED EDITION!!!!"). So whether you prefer the deep black gloss of Définicils (like Karlie Kloss), the clear-cut definition of Hypnôse Star (hi, Hanaa Ben Abdesslem), or the wide-eyed, volumizing effect of Hypnôse Drama (cheers, Arianna Huffington), there's no time like the present to snag one for travel, to beautify your makeup bag, or just in case your current supply runs out. We're supposed to replace our mascaras every four months anyway, right?
