Smashbox Reign Collection for Fall 2009

Back in May, I was given some insider info about what Smashbox had up its sleeve for Fall 2009, and what I heard had me squeeing. I was told there would be a collection based off of the court of Henry VIII, with new items like a jet set quad and plum mascara. Well, I am happy to report that Temptalia has just posted the color story, and I am really liking what I see! Here is what we can expect:

Smashbox Reign Collection for Fall 2009

Eye Shadow Palette ($42.00)
  • Majesty Champgane, fuchsia, and black trio
  • Monarch Gold, copper, and brown trio

Jet Set Palette ($48.00)

  • Matte black/dark brown, Gold and metallic brown liner duos

Fusion Blush ($32.00)

  • Regal

Lash DNA Mascara ($19.00)

  • Plum

Lip Gloss ($18.00)

  • Crowned Shimmering peachy pink

Doubletake Lip Color ($22.00)

  • Amaretto
  • Currant
Somehow, fall collections seem to be the best for me in terms of products and colors, and Reign is looking like it might live up to Wicked Lovely (a collection which I loved) for me. While this isn't nearly as dramatic as what we are seeing with the MAC Style Black collection, I am still pleased to see some stand out pieces in colors that I can rock with confidence at my corporate job.

What do we think? Is this a hit or miss from Smashbox? Or are we reserving judgment till we see it in person?

Thanks for the info on Smashbox! The collection looks like it could be a winner. I especially want to try that plum mascara. I think it could really accentuate my green eyes.

Looks like a gorgeous collection! Of course, I'm pretty biased towards anything having do with Henry VIII's court, royal families, or history in general. I will definately be checking this out in person.

Piper, you are very welcome! I too have green eyes, and can't wait to try the purple mascara!

Krasey Beauty said...

Krista, while the fall isn't my favorite season (since it means cold is coming), I do still love fall makeup collections!

Krasey Beauty said...

The hollywood memoirs, i agree! I absolutely love anything to do with that time period too!

this looks like a total hit for me, especially the shadow trio. though i'm not too sure about the fuchsia - an experiment is in order

Krasey Beauty said...

Lizzard, me too! I can't wait to try it all out! Fuchsia can be surprisingly wearable!

Just bought the "currant" lip pencil. Coupled with a lip "glass" (I got Eliz Arden crystal clear gloss) it looks awesome. It's dark, but that's what I was going for.

Msreinhardt, that sounds great! While it might feel a bit too early for dark, I am sure it looks absolutely divine and will be awesome for fall!
