Like a Bollywood film, Nicolas Degennes creates an extravaganza of colour to make everyday life a dream. “I saw India as a bombardment of colours bursting forth to the rhythm of filmi music. I had already been a fan of this infectious, upbeat music for a long time, but of course it was the imagery that really grabbed me — Bollywood and its palettes of colours burst with beams of light. Melodramatic love stories… But love stories all the same, with all the emotion, the ardour, the passion of hearts that are torn apart and the struggle through hardship… The stuff of life! And the women! So beautiful, vivacious, dazzling… … and yet so sweetly demure. A homage to Indian beauty, heightened with a discreet air of eroticism and anchored in the purest tradition. What I adore in these love sagas is the eternal femininity in a showcase of flashy, ultra-kitsch glamour and gaudy music.

February/March 2009 – shu uemura’s 128th mode make-up collection ‘Mirage’, is an optical phenomenon that gently arises like a mirage. Enhancing the uniqueness of every woman’s face, natural positions of light and shadow are accentuated using expertly chosen palettes of color and contrasting textures. Utilizing the concept of Impressionist painting, colors appear randomly placed when viewed up close, yet with distance, the effect creates a lasting and clearly defined image. Wavering on the eye and cheek, brushstrokes of colors and texture gently enhance each part of the face, creating outstanding dimension with sophisticated combinations of light and shadow.

The MIRAGE collection includes:

Eye Shadow Palette ($40.00)

  • Utopia Delicate mixture of fresh, alluring colors wavers in the light
  • Fantasia Mellow harmony of color enchants the eyes

Drawing Pencil ($19.00)

  • 14ME Light Blue (LE) Light blue with a hint of metallic nuance
  • 15ME Lilac (LE) Uplifting lilac with a hint of metallic nuance
  • 04ME Pink Glimmering highlighting shade to attract the light

What were your favorite winter collections this year? Which ones did you skip, which ones did you end up with everything?

You know what I noticed?  Most brands don’t have winter collections–they only bother with releasing holiday collections, gift sets, and/or palettes or some combination thereof.  MAC dominates the winter ’08 season with its non-holiday releases!

Temptalia Asks You


If you could put any four eyeshadows in a quad, what would you choose? Any brand, any shade (past or present).

Thanks to Samaya for the question!
