A few interesting things from around the Internet about upcoming collections. Before we go into Chanel, note that Chic Profile says that Nars will be putting their Fall 2010 collection online on July 15th. Worth checking out if you love violet tones.
First, Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss introduces a new high-gloss lip product which, from what I have read online, will be more sheer but more high-shine than the current Rouge Allures Laques.
New applicator, which has a pointed doe-foot tip:
There are several promotional pictures of the packaging, here are just a few:
These are reported to sell for around 29 euros, so I am guessing that these will be around $32-35 if released in the U.S. The colors are as follows:
- 51 Insouciance
- 52 Genie
- 55 Confidence
- 56 Imaginaire
- 57 Insolence
- 58 Emoi
- 60 Exces
- 61 Fatale
There are missing numbers in the line-up here (53? 54?), so I suspect that some colors will be limited edition for certain stores or markets.
The promotional material indicates that there will be a release of new Rouge Allure lipsticks and nail polish with this line (and re-promotes of existing Rouge Allure Laque shades):
The Le Vernis nail polish shades are: Rose Confidentiel, Rose Insolent and Rouge Fatal
The Rouge Allure lipstick shades are:
I am not certain of the release date for these–the international sites expect them in September, but it is not clear when/if these will be released in the U.S.
Second, here are some promotional pictures of Yves Saint Laurent’s Fall collection:
On the right, new packaging for the Touche Eclat:
I’m really loving this picture of the eyeshadow duo in Midnight Blue/Solar Gold:
More product names:

Ombres Duo’s in l29 purple amethyst/tawny brown and 31 midnight blue/solar gold.
Eyeshadow singles in 13 aquamarine and 14 satin silver.

Third, am I the only one excited for Estee Lauder’s Blue Dahlia palette designed by Tom Pecheux?
Fourth, just for fun a few pictures from Dior’s Autumn/ Winter fashion show–they look like flowers, don’t they? The have some type of colored cellophane around their faces and heads:
