Back in May, I was given some insider info about what Smashbox had up its sleeve for Fall 2009, and what I heard had me squeeing. I was told there would be a collection based off of the court of Henry VIII, with new items like a jet set quad and plum mascara. Well, I am happy to report that Temptalia has just posted the color story, and I am really liking what I see! Here is what we can expect:
Eye Shadow Palette ($42.00)
- Majesty Champgane, fuchsia, and black trio
- Monarch Gold, copper, and brown trio
Jet Set Palette ($48.00)
- Matte black/dark brown, Gold and metallic brown liner duos
Fusion Blush ($32.00)
Lash DNA Mascara ($19.00)
Lip Gloss ($18.00)
- Crowned Shimmering peachy pink
Doubletake Lip Color ($22.00)
Somehow, fall collections seem to be the best for me in terms of products and colors, and Reign is looking like it might live up to Wicked Lovely (a collection which I loved) for me. While this isn’t nearly as dramatic as what we are seeing with the MAC Style Black collection, I am still pleased to see some stand out pieces in colors that I can rock with confidence at my corporate job.
What do we think? Is this a hit or miss from Smashbox? Or are we reserving judgment till we see it in person?
