Oh my goodness, are these not adorable? Sigh, I wish they weren’t $90 a pop, because I would surely consider getting one otherwise. I just don’t think I could bring myself to splurge that much on any makeup item with my student budget! Anyone a fan of Chantecaille?
We spotted some lovely Fafi product photos over on Aesthetics Flickr album, and we had to share! I think I like the outside packaging more than the product packaging, ha! What do you think? Will you save these boxes or will they get tossed like the regular black ones?

In celebration of the 2008 Golden Globe Awards, L’Oréal Paris continues its tradition of honoring Hollywood’s most talented women in film and television with an exclusive, luxury compact. Designed by Kwiat, one of Hollywood’s favorite diamond jewelry companies, the L’Oréal Paris 2008 Red Carpet Compact will be presented to the Golden Globes’ female nominees in all categories.
The L’Oréal Paris 2008 Red Carpet Compact is inspired by the glamour of awards season and the stars that make the night so special. In a beautiful, star-inspired design of Swarovski crystals set in 18K white gold on classic plated 18K yellow gold, this exclusive compact is a stunning design of beauty and brilliance. Complete with a “red-carpet” ruby crystal embedded in the push-button opening holding together two makeup mirrors on the inside, the L’Oréal Paris 2008 Red Carpet Compact is a luxurious, must-have red carpet accessory for each nominee to ensure she looks her best throughout the evening.
This stunning compact isn’t just for the stars. The L’Oréal Paris Red Carpet compact will be available to purchase at L’Oréal Paris retail stores (888-270-7743; suggested retail price $50). In keeping with L’Oréal Paris’ longstanding support of the OCRF, 20 percent of the retail sale price will benefit this vital organization.
For those who want the true Golden Globes experience of luxury and glamour, L’Oréal Paris has commissioned a limited edition gold and diamond version of the L’Oréal Paris Red Carpet Compact, valued at $4,900, to raise additional funds for the OCRF. Two of these compacts will be listed for sale through eBay Giving Works, eBay’s dedicated program for charity listings, with all funds generated benefiting the OCRF. The compacts will be auctioned on www.ebay.com/lorealparis beginning January 4 through January 14 with an opening bid of $500.
Why must it always be an international site that manages to break the stories the quickest? Sadly, I am only an English speaker (I took French for five years, but please, let’s not go there). Zghzp delivered this color story, in Chinese (see Google translation here), and I must tell you, I certainly hope that as we get closer to February, information for the US launch trickles out, because I am hard-pressed to believe that a collaboration collection would feature as many repromotes/permanent colors as the site says.
