Are we ready to preview Fall yet?? I never am.. it makes me sad to see the transition from summery goodness, BBQs and swimming to “here comes boring, old fall”. The makeup collections I am seeing are, well, not so boring! To kick off my coverage of what’s hot for fall, let’s take a look at the dazzling French Coquettes Fall Collection from Lancome.
Lancome French Coquettes Fall Collection 2010
Nordstrom.com says: The seductive color statement captures the spirit of the modern woman at the start of the 20th century, heralding the signature hallmarks of French glamour. Deep plums, shimmering charcoals and sophisticated nudes are sure to inspire.
Well, Eau La La! I love plum.. and I’m on my knees begging to the plum gods that an awesome handbag will come out in this color.. that I can afford.. and make my life complete! I’ve already snooped around the Coach store a few times and wasn’t yet impressed with their fall collection. They did say there might be more plum purses coming in.
I’m also hoping to grab something that I didn’t get a chance to buy last season.. purple suede booties with ruffles. For some reason I feel like channeling Prince, minus the pirate shirt. 1980’s Edwardian revisited!
Let’s check out the eyeshadow first, since that seems to have the biggest impact on me!

Featuring crushed mother-of-pearl to intensify the already dazzling colors:

This is sooo pretty. I need to check this out. Normally when I find “glow” powders, they are pink. This one is different for a change.
