Can you believe the fall makeup collections are coming out already? Yeah, me neither. But that time is upon us. Here’s a preview of Lancome’s collection for Fall 2008.
Lancôme’s fall color collection, Maharani Jewels, hits stores this month. The collection pays homage to India and is a reflection of the country’s alluring colors and elaborate designs. From the fragrant spices, to the natural hues of India’s landscape, to the beautiful colored jewels that adorn the neck of a Maharani, or princess, all of these unique elements highly influenced Lancôme’s fall color palette. We’re particularly excited about the elephant bronzer in this new collection. It’s a chic bronzing compact embossed with an iconic symbol of India, the elephant, which signifies royalty and internal strength.
Poudre Elephant Teint
This is the perfect product to achieve a gorgeous glow. In India, the elephant is one of the most revered symbols, denoting royalty, inner strength and nobility. Now this iconic symbol can be found embossed in the powder of this new limited-edition bronzer. $36.50
Maharani Juicy Tubes
Inspired by the intricate motifs of Mehndi art, these Juicy Tubes are embellished with a golden design of scallop lines, dots, teardrops and paisley shapes. Shades range from Mango Mystere to Guava Enchantment and Autumn Jasmine. $18.00
Le Crayon Khôl Kajal
This ultra-soft khôl divinely glides across lids, lining them in exquisite deeply pigmented color. Natural jojoba oil and organic beeswax make application smooth and comfortable. For sultry eyes, evocative of a Bengal beauty, India Ink imbues an intense black for a captivating look. For softer, but equally sexy eyes, smoke out the rich brown hue of Amber Night or delicately apply the lustrous color of Smoky Henna. $23.50
Maharani Color Design Eye Shadow Quads
The raw and natural tones found throughout India’s countryside are seen in the Lotus Splendor palette with its earthy brown, peach and copper eye shadows, while the Secrets of Benghal palette features soft pink, dusty mauve, eggplant and highlighting shadows. Paired with Le Crayon Khôl Kajal in India Ink, the combination of shadow and dark liner work in harmony to create a sultry, intense eye look. $40.00
My thoughts? I adore elephants, so that little compact with the elephant on the bronzer is calling my name. Would you spend $36 for a bronzer? Help me out, ladies!
