Holy F**king S**t - Ladies & gents, my MA gave me the lowdown on what's coming up through the middle of January, including a good long look at the book and some very enticing descriptions of the things he was craziest about.
WHERE TO BEGIN, I ASK YOU????
First off, there are 2 collections for after Xmas, 2 for the week of Jan 6th and 2 for Jan 13 (it's super late and I've been working non-stop for many hours so I'm kind of fried - I may say a few things that overlap but bear with me. Besides these collections, there's the couture, which is very simple product-wise but extra gorgeous packaging wise. There's also going to be a relaunch of one of the Studio foundations, plus an all eyebrows collection with many new perm and LE brow products, a new mascara and an OBNOXIOUS Black Friday promotion that we are all going to frikken crave like hungry beasts and will only have ONE day to get :(
Where do I start, damnnnnnn.
Here are the highlights:
GREY FRIDAY: This is for one day only (Black Friday) online only plus the big NYC store - times square? I didn't write anything down so can't quite remember the store. They're bringing back JET!!!! This is the incredibly beautiful dark grey lipstick of long ago, with matching Jet nail polish. I'm officially burning in Makeup Hellfire and Brimstone. Do not miss this one if you have a daring bone in your body.
YES, there is going to be an ALL PRESSED PIGMENTS COLLECTION. I am forgetting the date, but it's either mid-Nov, mid Dec. or it's one right after Xmas - sorry about that, I'm thinking it's not one of the ones after Xmas overall. Anyhow, PRESSED PIGMENTS IN EVERY COLOR OF THE RAINBOW, including bringing back 3 of the face & body (Warming Heart, and the darkest and lightest ones). They will be $21. I think if you love sparkly, you might actually want to reconsider buying too many EDES from Glamourdaze and just get these beauties in the much larger size they come in. My MA was batshit crazy about the BLACK WITH INTENSE GOLDEN SPARKLE, but there's also bright pink, silver, champagne, lavender, and so on - the list was huge - I'd say a good 15 colors, plus various odds and ends like brushes (not LE I don't think), perm liner, etc. Don't fear these pigments - try applying them with the new weirdo spongey eye applicators. It's a match made in heaven. I wore the dark one today, yesterday, a couple days before, and on and on - I am totally in love with them, even more than EDES (other than my beloved Dark Dare, that is). No beetle wing green, I don't think, sad to say - but then again that list was so huge and I've been running on mental fumes the past few days, so please excuse the vagueness.
Also, in the Couture Collection, there will be mystery powders in 3 shades, a packaging of that perm silvery highlighting powder (oh god forgetting the name) and RUNAWAY RED plus a new soft pink liptick ANDDDDDDD a very very beautiful bag with a brush he was telling me is an old one of yore that is amazing - a thick, soft, dense almost paw shape with a flat top - Mac Guy help me out here...... Anyhow, the packaging is very very classy and retro soft pink fabric with golden bows in these beautiful very retro styling, sort of a cross between the 20's, the 40's and the early 60's. What your very rich and classy old aunt wore in her Park Avenue penthouse all the way into her 80's. :D I thought it looked beautiful and I don't always go in for these things. Even the lipsticks are fabric covered, mes amis!!!!!!
I'll continue in another post.....
I just found out the pink in the couture is 3N!!! Plus the brushes are a set for $100. They include the 136 and the 282.
