This morning in Paris, the Lancôme makeup team unveiled their fall 2009 color collection, Declaring Indigo.
Created by Lancôme artistic director for makeup Aaron De Mey, this collection celebrates Paris in all its vibrancy. Aaron chose shades that represent the glamour, the energy and the passion of Paris – indigo blue, bright red and luxurious gold.
Lancôme debuted a few key shades during Fashion Week. At Chris Benz, all three Le Vernis nail colors were showcased: Golden Audacity, Indigo Paris and Rouge Liberty.
Lancôme spokesmodel Daria Werbowy is the face of the collection. She was photographed by Mario Sorrenti for the ad (above).
The sophisticated cosmetic and toiletry bag, designed exclusively for Beauty.com, features wide stripes in fresh neutral shades from her current color palette with a convenient top zipper offering a pop of nautical navy. Ideal as a gift for Mother’s Day, hostesses, and summer bridal parties, the roomy bag has a collapsible shape, cotton canvas exterior and multiple interior pockets, making it a quintessential accessory for both daily use and travel.
Beauty.com has been a backstage partner to Lela Rose during New York Fashion Week for the past two years. “The Lela Rose and Beauty.com collaboration speaks not to only the Lela Rose customer, but to women everywhere,” says Lela Rose. “Women today are looking for value and quality when making purchases without having to sacrifice style and sophistication. I can’t think of a better pick-me-up than this gift with purchase to kick off the spring season.” Valued at $150, the classic cosmetic bag comes filled with 15 hair, makeup, and skin care samples, the most full-and sample-sized products ever to be included in a designer gift with purchase bag on Beauty.com. Customers will receive this gift for free with a $100 purchase on Beauty.com. The Lela Rose cosmetics case includes:

I’m going to be perfectly honest. This coral-inspired Hidden Treasure Brush Set by Sonia Kashuk is so damn pretty that I wouldn’t care if the brushes weren’t very good. Not that they’re bad. Actually, I really don’t know because I haven’t bought them yet. But for just $19.99, I intend to find out.
The sparkly coral handles just beg to be displayed. These brushes would look so chic splayed out on the vanity in a beach house bedroom. Right? Much classier than the nautical bric-à-brac nonsense that typically clutters vacation home counters.
