Guerlain Terra Ora Collection
Guerlain Terra Ora Collection

Guerlain’s 2013 Terra Ora collection is an invitation to summer. Utilizing white and gold tones, which are showcased through stunning product composition and imagery, the Terra Ora assortment provides an unexpected and gorgeous contrast by playing with light and shadow, maximizing radiance and enhancing the inherent beauty of sun-kissed skin.

Terra Ora ($72.00) (Limited Edition)

Guerlain’s newest signature compact. Terra Ora is composed of a pearly white gold and matte beige which highlight and sculpt the face and décolleté. Terra Ora fits all skin tones, and comes encased in a beautiful wooden mirror case with magnetic closure.

Météorites Perles Les Ors Primer ($71.00) (Limited Edition)

This sheer, luxurious base uses a combination of three different gold pearls to reveal a brighter complexion. White pearls illuminate the skin, while pink and yellow pearls add a rosy glow and a subtle shimmer. The lightweight gel texture makes this primer perfect for setting makeup in warmer weather, or on its own to enhance the skins’ natural radiance.

Khôl Me Kajal ($37.00) (Permanent)

Guerlain’s newest eyeliner is ultra-pigmented to leave a deep, long-lasting impression. The precision tip and ingenious pen shaped design allow for easy manipulation, enabling it to be used as liner or eye shadow.

Loose Powder Eye Shadow ($35.00) (Limited Edition)

The secret for beautiful eyes this summer, Guerlain’s loose iridescent eye shadows give an immediate metallic result with only one light application. Available in two easy-to-wear shades:

  • Cuivre Ora Warm and sensual copper
  • Bronze Ora Timeless bronzed brown

Terra Nerolia ($69.00) (Limited Edition)

This exquisite oversized face and body bronzer showcases a dazzling sun icon comprised of shimmering peach, bronze and gold shades. When marrying the three shades together with each brushstroke, the gold infuses throughout, resulting in a subtle satiny sheen. In line with the Terracotta collection, Terra Nerolia is scented with the alluring tiare flower.

Shine Automatique ($35.00) (Limited Edition)

  • Corail Ora Luminous warm coral shade with gold tone iridescence, offering color that is wearable and on trend.
  • Bianca Ora Semi-transparent white gold that can be worn alone or as a top coat to create a shiny wet effect.

Terra Ora Kabuki Brush ($55.00) (Limited Edition)

A brush exclusively designed for Guerlain bronzing powders. Dense and qualitative natural hairs pick up a generous amount of product and smoothes it evenly onto the skin, resulting in flawless, streak-free color.

Giorgio Armani Summer 2013 Collection
Giorgio Armani Summer 2013 Collection

Amber Face & Eye Palette ($88.00) (Limited Edition)

A gradation of golden bronze inspired by pleated lamé. Giorgio Armani’s signature engraved in the palette embodies the designer’s influence on the product. Meant to illuminate the face with a healthy sun-kissed glow, this bronzer enhances the skin’s natural radiance. An ultra fine film of vibrant color that blends perfectly, creates a veil of velvet on the eyelid and leaves a warm & natural sheer skin tone. April 2013.

Flash Lacquer ($29.00) (Permanent)

The new elastic shine formula fills in the lip lines to create an extremely smooth surface. For the first time, light reflects on every point of the lip. A new generation of selected crafted oils enables the purest transparent ingredients: the base is no longer yellow but as pure as crystal. This new approach allows using different light emollient oils for optimized comfort and hydration. The agent used to jellify the oils in a lip gloss has been replaced by a combination of elastic polymers. For the first time, the ingredient giving substance to the lip gloss truly fuses with oils, instead of absorbing them like a spongy powder. The ingredients are micro-connected creating a continuous elastic weave. May 2013 (Giorgio Armani currently has 18 available online.)

Twelve Pure Attitude Lacquers From candy corals to neon pinks, from the perfect red to the most glowing beiges, self-sufficient colors are blended in a pearl-free base strong color that brings attitude. The pure finish ensures elegance.

  • 100, 106, 107, 300, 301, 400, 519, 520, 521, 522, 523, 524

Twelve Pearly Japanese Enamels From oriental plums to cherry blossom rose, from spring corals to precious light wood hues, pretty and fragile colors fuse with a high proportion of micronized pearls. Kimono balanced shades bring tenderness and pearly finishes ensure sophistication.

  • 102, 103, 200, 302, 303, 500, 501, 503, 525, 526, 527, 600

Twelve Sparkling Midnight Shimmers From madreperla to gold carat beiges, from shimmering red plums to black pearls, strong rich colors blend with luminescent pearls. Precious stone colors bring timeless style and multifaceted reflections ensure a daring statement.

  • 108, 109, 202, 406, 505, 528, 529, 601, 607, 608, 700, 701

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow

Like all our Eyeshadows, each Moondust shade comes in our new compact with the cool pop-out feature. Pop these shadows out of their compacts and into one of our customizable Build Your Own Palettes to create the ultimate travel-friendly collection. To make Moondust Eyeshadows easier to spot in your makeup bag or palette, the compacts are pale silver (instead of gunmetal like our iconic shadows).

Super-secret new technology at our lab gives Moondust an amazing effect not found in traditional pressed-powder shadows. It feels like a cream but goes on like a powder to create a smooth, brilliantly reflective look. The result? Sexy, twinkling sparkle with a ton of depth and movement. (And a LOT of questions about what you’re wearing!) The colors are like nothing else out there. Our staff is already going nuts over Zodiac, an amazing smoky black with a blue-green shift and a sparkly 3-D effect.

Urban Decay launches Moondust Eyeshadow, a dazzling innovation in eyeshadow with a superrefined and incredibly sophisticated feel. Forget EVERYTHING you know about glitter eyeshadow. Moondust is like NO OTHER shadow. There’s not a speck of chunky “teen glitter” to be found in these babies. Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle collide with intense, dreamy hues and lush 3-D metallics—for an effect that’s out of this world. And while some traditional sparkly shadows tend to look cheap, Moondust has a really luxe, upscale vibe and a gorgeous, diamond-like effect.

Moondust Eyeshadow is infused with a delicate, microfine sparkle and gorgeous 3-D pearls—for a glistening, iridescent effect and amazing flashes of multidimensional sparkle. We recommend applying Moondust with your fingers. For extra intense color payout, try it wet.

Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00) (New, Permanent)

  • Moonspoon Medium gray with bright silver sparkle
  • Diamond Dog Deep brown with white-gold sparkle
  • Intergalactic Medium purple with bright silver sparkle
  • Space Cowboy Light champagne with bright silver sparkle
