The leaves are brown, the sky is gray, and it’s a cold winter day in New York City, but that doesn’t stop me from lusting to be on Rodeo Drive basking in the California sun. Until this California dream becomes a reality, the new Michael Kors Very Hollywood Collection Spring 2010 (shown below) will have to suffice.
The collection, a collaborative effort between Aerin Lauder, Estee Lauder’s Senior VP, and the well-known Project Runway judge and iconic designer, Michael Kors, began with the Very Hollywood Eau de Parfum, a sparkling blend of mandarin, iced bergamot, and gardenia. Most recently, the pair launched two glamorous makeup looks that include lip gloss, lipstick, blush, liner, and nail polish. Bel Air Beige (left) is a slightly more natural theme of subtle corals and soft neutrals, while Rodeo Pink (right) is vivacious and bold. Both are classically luxurious, but fresh enough for a younger look, too.
The standouts of the collection are by far the Eyeshadow Duos ($30), available in Blonde Mink (taupe and chocolate) or Night Star (silver and charcoal). Although not part of the color collections above, the Shimmering Loose Powder ($32) shouldn’t be missed; it is the finishing touch to create a luminous and smooth face and works like a charm for any look.
