Urban Decay Fall 2009 Product Launches

Ink for Eyes ($22.00)

It’s everything you want in a cream eyeliner! More precise than a pencil, more forgiving than a liquid, this super-smooth formula offers more control, play time, and buildable coverage than your average liner. Create razor-sharp lines or smoky bedroom eyes… the creamy formula and double-ended applicator make it easy. Try the angled liner brush for precise details, or use the smudger for blending and drama. With such a wide variety of intriguing shades and ways to apply, you’re only limited by your imagination. (Cheesy, but true.)

Illamasqua Coming to Sephora July 21st

At long last, the uber-artistic Brit beauty brand Illamasqua is making its way to U.S. shores via yours truly — Sephora! (Who else did ya think?) As expected, in-the-know beauty junkies across the nation obsessed with the brand knew it was just a matter of time before their pretty wishes would come true. Known for their night time makeup and dark, artistic persona (think 1920’s Berlin), Illamasqua is all about individuality and, as they say, “finding your alter ego.” Expect the unexpected with this makeup line: emerald polishes, beyond swoopy false lashes, plum-black lip shades, and stage-worthy eye makeup in vivid, dance club-worthy colors. Think of it as your ultimate nighttime makeup brand. Shop the entire line July 21st on Sephora.com, or at our new Times Square store on July 30. It’ll also be available in more stores come Fall. Want a sneak peek? Check out these gorgeous looks we’re featuring on their Brand Boutique on Sephora.com. SO gorgeous, right? I am totally rockin’ those emerald digits and baby blue lashes. Sigh.

Chanel Venice Collection for Fall 2009

Chanel Venice Collection for Fall 2009

As a city built on water, Venice was a source of great intrigue for Gabrielle Chanel. She saw it as simultaneously dramatic and fragile – qualities she herself possessed. With the imagination of the CHANEL Makeup Studio, Venice comes to life in a palette reflective of the city’s shimmering facades and mosaics, and the sparkling aquatic colours of its lagoons. As seen in the runway looks created by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, at the 2009/10 Cruise Collection show, held on the beaches of Venice, Italy, rich sienna and deep rose tones, and dusky greys and greens combine for a modern look that can be softened for day or emboldened come evening.
