Sue Devitt takes a journey to Mt. Kilimanjaro this holiday season with a new, breathtaking collection inspired by the seductively alluring colors, textures and natural surroundings of this exotic locale. Created to mimic the vibrant hues of Kilimanjaro, Sue has captured a vision of exotic colors that range from the crisp mountain white caps to the deep shades of purple and lavender reflected off the mountain during the sun’s descent and an intense black African starry night.
The Kilimanjaro collection for Holiday 2008 includes:
Microquatic™ Hydrating Marine Mineral Eye Palette in Kilimanjaro ($37.50)
This exquisite palette features a variation of universally flattering purples in blendable, wearable and long-lasting eye color. This cutting edge formula also contains a synergistic complex of biotechnological marine and botanical substances such as Sea Butter, Shea Butter, Ceramides and Hylauronic Acid in addition to vitamins, minerals and proteins that work in tandem to help skin absorb water from the air while restoring skin’s natural elasticity.

Condition lashes while dispensing a deep black lavender pigment to the lashes. This luxurious mascara features Devitt’s signature Microquatic™ formulation, offering a nano dispersion of vitamins, pro-vitamins and soothing orchid extract for added hydration, while beeswax and microcrystalline wax keep lashes moist and malleable all day long.
