Lancôme’s 2011 Holiday Collection was created by Kate Winslet in aid of The Golden Hat Foundation*.
The collection includes five L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks (€25.00 each), five new Le Vernis Polishes (€20.50) and the beautiful Poudre Golden Hat Powder (€45.00). I have my eye on that powder!! All of the products are embossed with the foundation’s logo and the actress’ signature.
In order to support Kate Winslet with this project, Lancôme has worked alongside her to create a limited edition make-up collection and will donate €150,000 to the “Golden Hat Foundation”.
The “Golden Hat Foundation” was created by Kate Winslet after she narrated the Icelandic documentary – “A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism” (a.k.a. “The Sunshine Boy”) – in which she followed the story of a child with autism. Touched by this boy’s life, she wanted to become more involved and began by developing a book project (to be published in the near futur) which brings together hundreds of self-portrait photographs by celebrities from the art and film world, each wearing the foundation’s symbolic hat. The objective? To raise money. She then went on to set up her own foundation, naming it after the poem “The Golden Hat”, written by Keli Thorsteinsson, the child featured in the documentary.
On counters from 1st November.
What do you think of the collection?
