A few days ago I asked on Facebook and Twitter what everyone's preference is regarding press releases and I received a unanimous "skip." I personally barely glance at press info when they're on a blog as well, though they're really useful when I need to fact-check for a post. That said, I still think these photos are probably worthwhile to post so you'll have an inkling of what's coming out for Le Métier de Beauté and Paul & Joe fall.
Le Métier de Beauté
Cocoa Crazed nail collection
Four brown-toned polishes in:
- Cocoa Me Crazy – vanilla bean cream with cocoa flecks
- Hottie Choco-latte – creamy, shiny chocolate brown
- Cocoa Cabana – bodacious brown with a hit of shine
- Hot n’ Saucy – deep cocoa infused with cherry red under-tones
Breathless Kaleidoscope Lip Kit
Shade descriptions from top to bottom:
- Cinema - a velvety, ultra-rich true red
- Existential - sparkling mauve with rose effervescence
- Beau - deep berry crimson with matte finish
- Celluloid - a glimmering, creamy flushed red
Nouvelle Vague Kaleidoscope Eye Kit, previewed here
On top of the regular fall collection, Le Métier de Beauté will once again collaborate with Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing to produce the Coromandel Collection, where they will debut a new matte Velvet Crème Lip Color.
The fall collection will roll out to counters nationwide mid-October.
Paul & Joe
Clutch your hearts because these are adorable. Paul & Joe, like many Japanese brands before it, is revamping the way you buy their lipsticks. Now you can customize your purchase by choosing your preferred case and a separate lipstick bullet ($17 each for the bullet alone), where you can pick the texture (comes in sheer, natural and full coverage) and color.
Other fall offerings include what I call the lovebird blushes and limited edition lipstick shades:
Color Powder CS in True Love, Inseparables and Les Tourtereaux ($30 each)
Paul & Joe fall will be available at BeautyHabit.com and Bergdorf Goodman. The blushes are already listed on the site and sold at the BG counter. If you need a contact, my friends Caroline (212.872.8648) and Alex (212.872.2759) would love to help you!
