Oscar winner looks flawless as brand ambassador for cosmetic brand

Lancome did not disappoint with its first flawless ad of Lupita Nyong’o.

The beauty brand named her its official Brand Ambassador back in April to which everyone on the planet thought was a great move on Lancome’s behalf. What cosmetic company wouldn’t want that striking face, deep brown complexion to represent their brand?


Yesterday Lancome released its first ad featuring the Academy Award winner and it’s perfection. Flawless. Magical. Breathtaking. All of the above.

The 12 Years A Slave actress is serving serious regalness. It’s all in the face and eyes. Her blemish free skin is a wonderful pick as the brand ambassador for Lancome’s Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation. According to the ad, it’s “available in 29 shades for all skintones.”

Fresh off landing her first Vogue cover, a new role in Star Wars: Episode VII and buying the rights to Chimamanda Adichie’s Americanahas well as starring in the film, we think it’s safe to say she is no longer the "it girl" of the moment. Her moment is sure to sail on to longevity.
