Given my tilt towards nail polish recently I’m going to go with
China Glaze’s Bohemian. There may have been a few dupes, but the colors were wonderfully pigmented and easy to work with. A definite win!

Either Guerlain or Chanel. I was going to say Burberry but honestly it was a small launch and I bought one product from it, so kind of a let down there.

Definitely MAC’s Cult of Cherry collection. It was the first time I had ever purchased something at MAC and that collection is a memorable one.

I have to say Estee Lauder’s fall launch. The collection didn’t just include a set that we usually see(which the Limited ed. palette was very interesting and quite different from other colors being released this fall) but Tom Pecheux had a hand in their launch of about 20 lipsticks, 2 sets of new nail polishes, a great number of new gelee eyeshadows. It looks like a huge revamp of the brand for fall launch.I was also enchanted by the Guerlain fall launch.

I would have to say Chanel. The rose initiale blush has become my holy grail of all blushes and suspicious nail color is my favorite color out of my WHOLE collection right now.

There were standouts for me from a number of collections and Chanel, Guerlain, NARS, China Glaze, and Rescue Lounge all come to mind. I definitely purchased the most fall collection products from Chanel.

NARS; it was very cohesive, and all the shades really said “Fall”. I only bought the eyeshadow duo, though. I have so many lip shades similar to those released already, but since they will be placed in the permanent rotation, I can still buy them if I choose. Also, although I’m not big on blush, it was nice to see NARS bring back a blush that was apparently a much loved shade *and* add it to the perm shades. It seems they really listened to the masses, and they respect them enough to act.

I too love NARS products but haven’t seen the new line. I love the blush that Christina reviewed today tho; at least on the computer.

Guerlain and Nars, their shades screamed “Autumn” all over the place. I got e/s, blush and l/s from both collections and I must say I’m very happy with them. I may purchase another Rouge G L’Extrait (orgueil) but I’m not sure.

However, Chanel was a huge dissappointment for me. I totally adored last year’s fall collection and almost bought all of it, while this one, I just got Rose Initiale and 2 nail polishes. I’m not really using them since Nars and Guerlai caught my attention.

MAC Styleseeker, since it was more of an Indian Summer type of color story….works better in So Cal. than the usual vampy colors. The blushes were particularly unusual and flattering!

I also went crazy for China Glaze On Safari – they’ve really stepped it up.

I was kind of in love with Lancomes Midnight Roses collection. My favorite pieces that was not lunched in the US but everywhere else as the 001 Moonlight Rose Blush Highlighter and the LE REGARD PRO Eyes And Brow Kit (double for nude matte shadows).

For nail it was the Glaze China Glaze New Bohemian Collection.

Another vote for Chanel, I can’t wait for their quad, it seems so pretty on the pictures. I have to also see Guerlain’s quad and I still wait for Violet Underground from Estée Lauder but somehow it is still not released in Germany *sigh*

I haven’t really had the time or money to check out many lines but just received UD’s Vice eye-shadow palette and the OCHO LOCO eyeliners and love the colors and texture of the ones I’ve used so far.
I will never have an opinion on nail polish b/c my nails are awful and immune system issues make me susceptible to fungal infections w/ acrylics or other fake nails. I did love it when I could wear them though.

I’m going to vote for Illamasqua (although their collection is called Generation Q). I think it’s a fantastic concept and photos are gorgeous and product is great too. Thanks for all your work Christine, I enjoy reading daily.

Definitely Chanel. I bought Rose Initale, Charactere, and Troublant. I can’t wear the shadows as they are too shiny for me. Instead I use Laura Mercier’s matte shadows.

Maybelline and Stila! Ok, I dunno if it really counts as their fall collection but I did get the in the know palette (stila) and their lip gloss trio in harvest.

And I really liked maybelline’s! I love their color tattoos and I got some other things from that collection.
