Lancôme Pout-à-Porter Lipstick Series Is Back!

Lancôme is bringing back the Pout-à-Porter Lipstick series! The previous four lipsticks in this collection were collaborations with celebrated designers Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler, Peter Som and Thakoon. All four of the lipsticks sold out and one Proenza Pink lipstick even sold for $122.50 on eBay.

For Spring 2010 Lancôme is collaborating with emerging designer Chris Benz and they need your help! They’re doing a lipstick naming contest; the new shade will be inspired by Chris’ Spring 2010 collection and will be worn by the models at his show in September. The contest winner will receive five of the lipsticks plus a $500 Lancôme gift certificate. All you have to do is post your suggestion on Chris’ Facebook fan page based on what you know about Chris and his fashion personality.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, July 12th, at 5 p.m. EST.

So be sure to visit Chris’ fan page. While you’re there, don’t forget to become a fan.

Merchant of Venice: Collection Venise De Chanel for Fall 2009

As a city built on water, Venice was a source of great intrigue for Gabrielle Chanel. She saw it as simultaneously dramatic and fragile – qualities she herself possessed. With the imagination of the Chanel Makeup Studio, Venice comes to life in a palette reflective of the city’s shimmering facades and mosaics, and the sparkling aquatic colours of its lagoons.

As seen in the runway looks created by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, at the 2009/10 Cruise Collection show, held on the beaches of Venice, Italy, rich sienna and deep rose tones, and dusky greys and greens combine for a modern look that can be softened for day or emboldened come evening.

EXCLUSIVE CREATION: Eye Gloss Luminous Cream Quadra Eye Shadow is a quartet of gel-cream shades – pearl, gold, black and red black – delivers a subtle luminous sheen that blends beautifully, from sheer to intense.

LIPS: The Chanel lip collection expands with a selection of rich, luxurious shades. Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour arrives in Intuitive, a pinkish brown; Clandestine, a rich brick shade; Captive, a classic brown; Amusing, a rosewood tone; Comedia, a true rose; and Instinctive, a perfect pink nude. Lips glimmer with Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Courtisane, a natural pink, and Arelequin, a glossy gold. Finally, define the mouth with Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer in Praline d’Or, a golden-hued nude.

EYES: Create a subtle or more dramatic look with Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Murano, a palette with shades of moss, pink and seafoam, and green shimmer. The latest Irreelle DUO Silky Eyeshadow Duo arrives in Acqua Alta, a pairing of white and grey shadows. Brows look perfectly defined with two new shades of Le Crayon Sourcils Precision Brow Definer, Blond Clair and Cendre Noir.

FACE: For the perfect finish, apply Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Fresque, a subtle peach shade, or Les Tissages De Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Sienna, a gorgeous earthy bronze. Skin is luminous with Poudre Douce Soft Pressed Powder in Pêche Caresse, a soft peach.

NAILS: Chanel, the leader in nail colour trends, introduces two new shades of Le Vernis Nail Colour: Intermezzo, a white pearl, and Gondola, a stunning maroon shimmer.

Available at Chanel boutiques, department and specialty stores, and on Chanel.com.
