Sephora + Pantone Universe Fall 2012 Collection

Sadly, it's taken this long for me to realize that there is a whole new Pantone collection at Sephora - I've still been reveling in the Tangerine Tango one from the summer! If you've had enough orange then you will really appreciate all of the beautiful jewel tones in this fall collection - not to mention the clever packaging!

Alchemy Of Color Eye Shadow Palette - $41 - features 10 stunning shades of shimmering bronze, nude, mauve, periwinkle, violet, royal blue, dark brown, hazel, silver, and gray hues. The Italian-inspired formula was baked in pure mineral water, an innovative process that traps color in a supple and flexible texture for intense payoff and high metallic shine. The catwalk-worthy colours can be combined to create soft, sultry, or smoky looks and can be applied wet for a more intense, longer wear.

So yes, the colours are all pretty and everything but what I really love is the compact. Rather then having a lid on hinges (that eventually break) it's magnetic and comes entirely off. The other side of the top has a mirror on it which makes it super easy to prop the lid up against something, hold the palette in your hand and really go to town painting up your eyes!
Alchemy of Color Face Palette - $36 - a versatile palette of silky, soft formulas that contains light and dark shades with both matte and pearly finishes to create a natural-looking glow. Achieve a perfect flush with the high-pigment blushes and then wear a beautiful, sheer glow thanks to the airy, ultra-transparent base of the highlighting formulas.

Not only does it has the same metallic palette that I adore from the eyeshadow palette - but the bottom row of shades - a gold, beige and pink, when swirled together give me the most perfect glow, without being glittery - I am totally in love!

Illuminating Face Primer - $31 - enriched with transparent, reflective micro-particles to give your face a new level of radiance, without an oily finish. The frothy texture is soft and silky upon application and its soothing properties turn your face into the perfect canvas ready for makeup.

While I like the way this primer looks and feels, I am not a fan of the strong floral scent, thankfully it fades quite quickly so the cooling sensation and instant pick-me-up the primer gives me might be worth the trade-off.
Lip Luster Lipstick - $22 - in 3 new shades: Cayenne - glittery pepper-red, Claret Red - glittery carnation pink, Raspberry Radiance - glittery dahlia mauve - a double-chambered lipstick that is highly pigmented, with a metallic core enveloped in a crystallized, moisturizing lip balm for a multifaceted effect. The formula moisturizes and protects with castor oil and candelilla, while water-resistant polymers lock-in color and hydration and has a light, peach-mango flavor.
Dazzling Lip Gloss Set - $29 - a set of four vibrant, ultra-shiny lip glosses in trendy jewel tones with impressive staying power that leaves lips feeling silky and moisturized. The excellent film former provides water and wear resistance, and a natural moisture barrier while conditioning agents and emollients act as lubricants on the surface of lips, creating a soft, smooth appearance that feels just as delightful as it looks.
Jewel Lacquer - $11 - in 6 shades: Cradle Pink - iridescent top coat, Rose Dawn - metallic light pink, Evergreen - deep metallic green, Reflecting Pond - deep metallic blue-green, Parachute Purple - metallic purple-blue, Violet Quartz - metallic violet - that were inspired by precious gems - the polishes feature an innovative texture and futuristic finish, from metallic, to sparkle, iridescent, and never-seen-before metallic matte. The formulas are long-wearing, chip-resistant, and promise full-color payoff. Check back on Tuesday for some swatches!

Better late to the party then never I guess! Available now in-store and online at Sephora.com.
