La Prairie Plumage de Nuit Fall Color Story, Review, & Swatches

Have you ever come across a product line that emanates luxury from every gilded crevice? I have experienced indulgent cosmetic bliss by way of the La Prairie "Plumage de Nuit" (feathers of the night) Fall 2009 colour collection. While La Prairie as a whole is a luxury cosmetics brand that has for the most part slipped past the radar, I knew as soon as I saw Plumage that I would never be the same.

Housed in elegant silver packaging that is chic but not bulky or heavy, Plumage de Nuit features shades of plum, brown, and copper. Colors range from neutral to bold, making the final look very customizable. The color palette reminds me of the rainforest meets African safari, simply stunning.

Plumage de Nuit includes:

Cellular Treatment Eye Colour Ensembles (Limited Edition):
• Les Sandpipers – a quad of warm golden colors
• Les Doves – a quad of cool silver and platinum hues

Cellular Luxe Lip Colours:
• Molten – copper
• Cardinal – rouge
• Velvet – plum

Cellular Lip Colour Effects:
• Maribou Glace – pink
• Firefly Glace – peachy copper

Cellular Treatment Powder Blush Duo (Limited Edition):
• Rosy Lovebirds – rose / pink duo
• Peachy Lovebirds – peach / bronze duo

Cellular Treatment Illuminating Face Powder:
• Soft Glow

You all know how I do it here on Krasey Beauty, here is a detailed review of some of the pieces, with photos for you to ogle.
Cellular Luxe Lipcolor in Velvet. Velvet is a gorgeous shade of plum, bordering on red with very strong pink notes. This lipstick glissades (slides) across the lips, enveloping them in rich, moist, pigmented color. Lasting power is phenomenal, and these lipsticks have a slight fragrance, but no taste that I can discern.

Swatches: On hand, then on lips.
Cellular Treatment Powder Blush Duo in Peachy Lovebirds. A duo of peach and bronze, this compact provides you with silky, smooth, soft focus color. You won't get intense pigmentation or clown cheeks with these powders, but rather a soft, lit-from-within glow. I love using the peach on the apples of my cheeks, with a bit of the bronze in the hollows of my cheeks for contour.
Last, but certainly not least,

Cellular Lip Colour Effects in Maribou Glace. A medium pastel pink, this lipgloss is very high on the shimmer and shine scale, in a sophisticated sort of way. This lipgloss is neither tacky nor watered down, but a blissful state in the middle that gives it the ability to adhere to the lips without gluing them together. Lightly fragranced and infused with light reflecting pigments, this lipgloss makes lips look plump and feel pillowy. This is what grown up shimmer looks like.
This collection is truly a feast for the high-end cosmetics lover. Plumage de Nuit is available now, both on the website and in major fine department stores.
