Texen gives concrete form to the collaboration between Lancôme and the Musée du Louvre

Inspired by nine masterpieces of sculpture and the lights and colors of the Louvre Museum, Lancôme has created a new skincare and make-up collection: Lancôme x Louvre. Included in this collection is the Richelieu palette, a make-up palette created by Texen Beauty Partners. 

Among the make-up cases offered by Texen, Lancôme has chosen a simple, uncluttered square shape. Inside the base, the special insert features five compartments and a housing for two brushes. Here, the formula is directly pressed and stamped with the motif, thanks to a technology designed to optimize color impact and enhance brilliance. A mirror is housed in the lid, protected by a frosted adhesive printed with the Lancôme & Louvre logo.

The Greek poetess Corine by French sculptor Edme-François-Etienne Gois, on display in the Richelieu wing of the Louvre, is the star image. 

The case owes its slenderness to the quality of the image, which enabled the work to be focused in full frame on the top of the case. The Lancôme logo was then added by hot stamping. 

A technical challenge

The exterior of the case was metallized before the decoration was applied. To reproduce the very high quality of the art photo, Texen used the heat transfer label technique, in which a printed film is applied by heat.

Texen Beauty Partners' teams managed the entire development process, from injection molding to decorations, including the assembly of individual parts.

Quickly becoming iconic, the make-up palette is designed for multiple uses for complexion and eyes. Shades can be applied by finger or brush, on eyes or lips.
