Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Palette Vintage for Holiday 2009

Experience a timeless treasure this winter with the NEW Clé de Peau Beauté Limited Edition Holiday Palette Vintage. Inspired by the eternal allure of vintage jewelry, Clé de Peau Beauté Color Creator, Lucia Pieroni, designed this powder with an elegant, lustrous color scheme intended to provide a gorgeous luminosity to the skin.

This lit-from-within warmth comes to life through the powder’s combination of three high intensity pearl pigments which accentuate facial contours with festive radiance. In addition, the powder combines four neutral shades which harmonize effortlessly with pearl pigments to provide an unparalleled brilliance to skin. This exceptional powder is presented in a stunning gold, diamond-cut, custom designed compact which recalls the elegant jewels of an earlier time.

As multi-faceted as the vintage jewelry which inspired it, this perfectly balanced powder blends effortlessly to offer an exquisite glow and sophisticated nuance to the complexion. Simply dust on the face, cheekbones and décolletage for an immediate glow.

Availability: November, the Clé de Peau Beauté Limited Edition Holiday Palette Vintage will retail for $125 at Bergdorf Goodman and select Barney’s, Neiman Marcus and Saks locations nationwide.

YSL Holiday 2009

YSL (Yves Saint Laurent) End of Year Event 2009 for Holiday 2009

The Yves Saint Laurent END-OF-YEAR 2009 make-up collection celebrates passionate colors to dazzle the year’s most festive evenings. Leaving glitter behind, Yves Saint Laurent opts for the ultimate chic of pure, vibrant, incandescent colors. From sublime red to deep plum, the shades adapt with variable textures, multiple effects and powerful combinations. Worn alone in a refined monochrome or paired in contrasting duos, they are intensely alive and designed to be freely expressed for an instinctive, ultra couture make-up look.

Glamour Product

As a treat for yourself or as a gift, two precious objects stir desire. They go everywhere, are as eye-catching as couture accessories, and they glorify lips and eyes in an instant. Gold or silver, these sparkling compacts are engraved with the emblematic Yves Saint Laurent heart. Their black vinyl straps slip onto a key ring, handbag or belt. For daytime or night time, for lips or eyes, they feature two harmonious duos for liberated, intuitive application.

  • PALETTE DUO POUR LES LÈVRES illuminates the lips with a shiny rosy-beige lipstick and a pearly champagne gloss. ($75.00)
  • PALETTE DUO POUR LES YEUX lights up the eyes with a pearly lavender used as a highlighter, and outlines them with intense violet. ($75.00)

Mini Touche Blush N°11 ($28.00)

The mini version of TOUCHE BLUSH slips into any evening bag. With its soft, faithful puff and mirror, it enhances the face’s voluptuous curves and the décolleté. The new shade N°11 – Sparkling Beige, a slightly scintillating coral beige, gives the skin a subtle ivory aura. A few caressingly soft touches suffice for instant, ultra-feminine radiance.

Collection (New Shades)

  • Rouge Pur Lipstick: N°149 – Black Tulip, N°150 – Sublime Red, N°151 – Sweet Dark Purple, N°152 – Pink Grenadine ($30.00)
  • Golden Gloss: N°17 – Golden Cherry, a rich red, N°18 – Golden Lavander, a subtle mauve ($29.00)

Collection (Repromotions)

  • Eyeshadow Duo: N°1 – Heavenly Beige/ Astral Brown ($41.00)
  • Dramatic Styling Mascara: N°1– Deep Black ($30.00)
  • La Laque: N°1 – Sublime Red and N°34 – Black Tulip ($20.00)

Availability: November 2009.

Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Duos in Diamond Life, Take Cover, and Nudenick ($6.99 for 0.12 oz.) are affordable, well-pigmented neutral-colored eyeshadow duos. I like Sonia Kashuk eyeshadows because they’re fairly reliable — most of the duos have good color pigmentation levels and easy to blend. I found all three of these eyeshadow duos to hold true to that expectation. I’d say the only one I had trouble with was Nudenick, but it’s more of an issue that one color is the same color as my natural skin tone… so yeah. On someone paler or over a base, you’d see it more. (But it would be good for a very natural, barely there eye.)

  • Diamond Life is is a duo of a matte, cool-toned brown with gray and a frosty, shimmery champagne shade.
  • Take Cover is a duo of a lightly shimmery peach with pale gold shimmer and a richer, golden-toned bronze.
  • Nudenick is a duo of a glittery, cool-toned champagne and a matte, warm-toned light peachy brown.

  • Product: 8/10
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 8/10
  • Packaging: 7/10

Recommendation: If you’re on a budget, Sonia Kashuk eyeshadows are always worth checking out!
