Lancôme Fall 2012: Midnight Roses

Lancôme invites you and your readers to be swept away by the mystical aura of Paris at midnight with Midnight Roses, the hypnotizing fall collection that evokes the twilight hours when a woman’s beauty comes into full bloom.

Featuring a mix of blushes, eye shadows, eyeliners and polishes, Midnight Roses brings a touch of sophisticated mystery and glamour using the season’s hottest purple hues and matte textures.

Smells Too Good to Be True!

I am head over heels for everything Blood Orange, maybe to the point of obsession.  I had the chance to try John Masters new Blood Orange and Vanilla Body Wash and it smells so insanely good. I am not sure if I want to bath in it or add vodka and drink it.

The formula leaves my skin clean and really soft and the best part? My skin has the light scent of Blood Orange and Vanilla for hours after my shower. Heaven!

The palette includes four shades inspired by Facebook: royal blue, violet, white and black. It was designed as a “declaration of love” to fans, “weaving together the now highly identifiable Facebook blue with the luxurious Yves Saint Laurent design,” according to Kiss and Makeup.

Fashionista confirmed that the Facebook eyeshadow palette will be made available via YSL’s official Facebook page on July 19.
