Guerlain Terra Azzurra Collection by Emilio Pucci for Summer 2012

“Guerlain by Emilio Pucci” embodies the union of two prestigious Houses in perfect synergy. This exceptional makeup collaboration draws its inspiration from summertime in the Italian Riviera, with its light-hearted and energetic “dolce vita” attitude that welcomes the warm, sea weather. Created by Guerlain Creative Director, Olivier Echaudemaison, and Pucci’s Image Director, Laudomia Pucci, the collection embraces summer with delightfully sunny shades and vibrant bursts of color. The common thread of this second collaboration is a motif inspired by an iconic print, “Winter Capri”, taken from the Emilio Pucci archives. Exclusively retouched for this collection, this signature print, a blue flower interlaced with swirls and flames, adds a joyful and elegant Pucci touch to the Guerlain summer products.

Terra Azzurra Bronzing Powder & Blush ($75.00) (Limited Edition)

The star of the collection, this exquisite powder and blush combines two success stories: Guerlain’s legendary Terracotta powder and Emilio Pucci’s iconic prints. The world of beauty and fashion unite in a single case to beautifully enhance the complexion. Half bronzer and half blush, this hybrid powder has a lightweight formula and offers a universal harmony of four shades. The outer case pays tribute to the paneling of a Riva yacht with an ebony-colored varnished wood. Presented in an accessory pouch printed with the Pucci motif, this is the ultimate summery accessory.

Meteorites Perles d’Azur ($58.00) (Limited Edition)

These must-have multi-colored little pearls are adopting their summer wardrobe! Encased in Pucci adorned packaging, Meteorites Perles d’Azur is enriched with a corrective blue pearl to create a flawless complexion.

Meteorites Pucci Collector’s Brush ($38.00) (Limited Edition)

An elegant Kabuki-style powder brush designed to work perfectly with the Meteorites Perles d’Azur pigments and to pick up just the right amount of Terra Azzurra powder. This chic midnight blue brush is stored in its Pucci print pouch.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Relaunch & Build Your Own Palette

You wouldn’t think we could improve upon one of the best Eyeshadows in the industry. But, thanks to new innovations in formulation technology, our TOTALLY NEW formula features:

  • Even softer, amazingly velvety texture – it’s cushy-soft!
  • Richer, more dense and decadent color
  • Smoother, more uniform pigment distribution and blendability
  • Longer-lasting, more crease-free wear

It’s the product we were born to make, and we think you’ll agree – we now make the undisputed, BEST shadow in the industry. The Pigment Infusion System is a vehicle for color. It’s what holds tightly onto pigment, AND what gives the formula its glide and insane color payout. Our proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula, so color stays on your lids, and sparkle doesn’t fall. It’s what gives our formula its velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability. And it works with EVERY shade and finish.

The coolest feature: two-part platform/shell system allows you to pop the shadow out of its shell and insert it into our Build Your Own Palette. Changed your mind? Pop it back into the shell. Makeup junkies, jet setters and makeup artists rejoice!
