Lancôme is a French luxury skincare company, one of the world’s largest. Lancôme was created as a fragrance house by Armand Petitjean and Guillaume d’Ornano in 1935. Today, Lancôme is owned by L’Oréal. Lancôme is famous or infamous (depends on how you look at it) by using popular Hollywood faces in its advertising such as Kate Winslet or Emma Watson.

Lancôme is expensive. A lipstick sells for approximately $32, £21 each, while a cream can cost up to $250.

Below is the example of one of its promotions for Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Light featuring heavily retouched Kate Winslet.
