Essie Summer 2010

Essie Summer 2010 Collection

Summer is special. Aside from the wonderful outdoor activities that we wait for all year, we also revel in the opportunity to now wear lighter, brighter and more playful clothing. Finally, we can shed the wool and mohair for cotton and linen. The keyword for summer is: fun! So indulge in seriously sensational color! Don’t be shy — make it the time to play with bold, playful color combinations.

“This year’s runways reflected the ease of the season with youthful, upbeat clothing in feminine fabrics,” explains Essie Weingarten, President and Founder of Essie Cosmetics, Ltd. “I was inspired by the vivid pastels at Versace and the splashy fl orals at DKNY. I created this collection to reflect the youthful, fun-to-wear flirty frocks.” The summer fashion trend is all about mixing and matching, and the summer color palette allows for the same fun and freedom. Choose Miss Matched for fingers and Pretty Edgy for toes, or whatever you fancy – since there is no more matchy-matchy!

Nail Lacquer ($8.00)

  • Miss Matched Sweet, sheer, ready for anything pink
  • Haute as Hello Racy, scorching coral
  • Knockout Pout Hot supercharged pink

“Gold is the most beautiful and precious source of light. It gives every woman an exceptional aura, like only a sun goddess of an evening would.” — Thierry Mugler

It is the divine nature of the material that has truly inspired Thierry Mugler. The ,wonderment that gold causes when it sweeps over skin and eyes invites each one of us to embrace new horizons.

Ombre Stellaire ($40.00)

Intense and precious, seemingly flowing from a stream of pure gold, the Gold Leaf eyeshadow unravels its silky-soft golden pressed powder.

Its stunning effects make eyes sparkle with a glittering and glistening glow.

  • Gold Leaf Gold leaf effect for magnetic eyes

Latex Gloss ($33.00)

In this collection, LATEX GLOSS comes in five new, very chic and highly pigmented shades: lacquered, iridescent or sequined, colors result from a sublime balance of sensual elegance and mouth-watering daring.
