Fall 2010 Collections

19 Aug

Some people look forward to fall because of football, cooler temperatures and all things pumpkin. Well, we Glimmer and Shimmer girls look forward to the new fall makeup collections! Oh, and all things pumpkin, too. (How many days until the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back?)

Some of these lines are already available, some are already sold out, and others still haven’t launched.

There are a few collections we can’t wait to get our grubby little hands on.

Lancome – French Coquette

Lancome’s Fall 2010 collection, French Coquettes, features a lot of shimmery colors and deep plums, and all the ads have a modern flapper theme!

The item we’re lusting over the most is the Ombre Magnétique eyeshadow in Cherry Cherie. It’s a beautiful sparkly purple that reminds Pants’ of an outfit she had for one of her Jem dolls. So pretty much, this color is truly outrageous!

Also the Color Design Quad in French Touch has a gorgeous dark purple, with a shimmery pink, peach and cream. It would be easy to blend any of the lighter colors with the dark purple in case it was too dramatic for a daytime look, or it would make a great liner.

Adora by Kat Von D

Kat Von D’s Adora fall collection includes a lipstick, perfume, makeup case and eyeshadow palette of the same name. While the palette just looks like the rest of her palettes – dark reds, blacks, greys – there’s one item we’ve had our eyes on: the Adora Painted Love Lipstick. It’s descirbed as a “shimmery candy apple red,” and there’s no better way to describe it. Pants found this while trying to help ‘ol Red look for a red lipstick that would be flattering on her, and Pants fell in love with the color. (I don’t know if I could pull it off, but I don’t care. I need this lipstick in my life, and I’ll find excuses to wear it.)

MAC Fabulous Felines Collection-Burmese Beauty

As avid cat lovers here at Glimmer and Shimmer, we couldn’t be more thrilled that MAC has a feline inspired collection.  This collection is full of pretty gold, green, and brown colors. You know, think the colors of cat eyes.

Smashbox- Masquarade

Masquarade collection is full of smoldering shimmery colors perfect for the fall season. The thing we are most excited about in this collection is the Creamy Queen Blush. It would be perfect for an extremely pink cheek, just like Pants had mentioned.


What collections are you looking forward to?
