Lancome Fall Collection 2009 - Declaring Indigo

Readers, you have already gotten a sneak preview of this collection when I posted my Most Wanted list from the Nordstrom event. The set of brushes that topped that list were the first release from this fall collection. On first sight, this looks like a another gem from Aaron de May, the company's new creative director. Here ie the description from the Lancome website, "Aaron de May declares for Lancome his new vision of free beauty. A collection modeled after the free spirit of a woman. She is Irreverent, Empowering, and a Trend-Setter. The statement is French Irreverence - a mix of insolence and charm, feminity with a twist and elegance. His inspiration is of magnificent heroines, women of convications and emotions that journey through life with a free state of mind and spirit. The Fall Color Collection is a declaration of beauty, the beginning of a new era...introducing Declaring Indigo".

Wow...so a huge new collection! What do I want from it? Well, let's just say thatr my shopping list of this collection will be pretty huge too. First and foremost, I want the Rouge Liberty Lipstick, it looks like another amazing red to add to my collection. I am also really lemming the Indigo Paris and Rouge Liberty polishes, especially the Indigo Paris. I also want to get the Virtouse Black Carat Mascara, of course...that honestly should go without saying at this point. I also want the Ink Artliner in Noir Magnificance and both the Golden Audacity and Nude Elegance eye shadow palettes. Finally, I want to get the La Rose Liberte face highlighter. I'm not going to decide what brushes that I need until I get to the counter and decide what products I will get.

Is it just me or has Aaron de May created yet another stunning collection?
