OH , LILY The youngest Lancôme am­bas­sadress blos­soms from Phil Collins’ daugh­ter to an ac­tress and the most recog­nis­able face in the world. By Li Ying Lim.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - THE BEAUTY -

In 2013, French beauty gi­ant Lancôme wel­comed their youngest am­bas­sadress ever. Most of­ten touted as the daugh­ter of renowned singer Phil Collins, blink an eye and you would also think that Au­drey Hep­burn has come to life. But Lily Collins is more than Hol­ly­wood roy­alty and dop­pel­gänger of the epit­ome of grace and style. She is the real deal when it comes to tak­ing risks in style and beauty. Surely it was no co­in­ci­dence that the beauty brand, which thinks her an “il­lu­mi­nat­ing fresh­ness,” de­buted Collins in var­i­ous re­fresh­ing takes that ranged from Twiggy-es­que eye makeup, dark wine lips, to bold eye­brows. Flash for­ward to 2015 and Collins, apart from grow­ing up along­side the brand – which cel­e­brates 80 years of beauty this year – is also a tour de force that cap­ti­vated au­di­ence all over the world with no­table films such as, The Mor­tal In­stru­ments, Love, Rosie, and The Blind Side, to name a few. She also joins an all-star cast – Ju­lia Roberts, Lupita Ny­ong’o, Kate Winslet, Pene­lope Cruz – in show­ing off their very own Aura of Youth. So, what is her se­cret?

She opens up with­out hes­i­ta­tion. “Sleep, hy­dra­tion, and laugh­ter,” she pauses, then adds. “Youth is Ad­vanced Géne­fique.” And that is no un­der­state­ment. The Lit­tle Black Bot­tle, which has sold over 15 mil­lion world­wide and gar­nered more than 150 in­ter­na­tional awards so far, is a sci­en­tif­i­cally proven for­mula for gen­er­at­ing ra­di­ance and youth. Years of re­search have kept fans beau­ti­ful and con­fi­dent.

“I think an il­lu­mi­nat­ing fresh­ness comes from an in­ner hap­pi­ness and that comes from an ac­cep­tance of self, laugh­ter, and pure joy that only the ones that you love can bring you,” Collins as­serts. “What makes a Lancôme woman feel beau­ti­ful is an in­ner con­fi­dence and I think an ac­cep­tance of what makes her­self very dif­fer­ent.”

Lancôme Ad­vanced Géne­fique is avail­able at Lancôme beauty coun­ters na­tion­wide at RM381.60 (50ml) & RM514.10 (75ml).
