Spring 2009 Makeup: A Few Favorites So Far

Published in: Just For Fun, Makeup


Winter’s in full effect, but it’s been all about spring here on Makeup and Beauty Blog. Here’s a quick look at some of my favorite spring collections so far.

Spring 2009 Makeup: A Few Favorites So Far

Lancome Pink Irreverence Spring 2009 Collection: Downtown Pink = Hotness

“Lancome chose to do something a little bolder than usual for a spring release. If Chanel’s Bohemian Fantasy and Dior’s Lady Dior collections were meant for sundresses and sandals, then Pink Irreverence was made for little black dresses and four-inch, black patent leather stilettos.”

Urban Decay Spring 2009: A Recessionista’s Guide

“The economy’s got a lot of us rethinking our beauty spending habits. If you’re looking to save dough but still want in on the spring collection action, Urban Decay’s Eric Jimenez suggests looking for makeup that multitasks.”

Estee Lauder Spring 2009 Fuchsia Now Sings with Soft Color

“Like Monet’s brush strokes, Estee Lauder’s Spring 2009 Fuschia Now collection sings with soft shades of color. Estee Lauder organized the products in this release into two camps: the Cool Pinks (purples and pinks) and the Warm Nudes (browns and beige).”

Let Lippmann Take You Back to the 80s with Spring Collection 2009

“Flash back to the ’80s with Lippmann’s two new spring 2009 nail polish shades. Available next month, both colors pay homage to two of the biggest song hits of the decade, Prince’s Purple Rain and Michael Jackson’s P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing).”

Chanel Spring 2009 Hydrabase Lipsticks: Red, Coral and Pink Bold Lips

“Toot-toot! All aboard the Chanel Spring 2009 Bohemian Fantasy Rouge Hydrabase Lipstick train (what a mouthful!). It’s a non-stop ride straight to the land of decadent reds, corals and pinks. Are you ready to roll?”

Smashbox Muse Collection Spring 2009 Face of the Day

“No, girls, I’m not a big fan of winter, and today I was missing the sunshine somethin’ fierce. I felt cold to my bones and turned, as I often do, to makeup for warmth. I turned to the Smashbox Muse Collection for Spring 2009 hoping that its fresh colors and cheerful packaging would light a fire under my…”

Givenchy Sari Spring 2009: Product Packaging Hotness!

“The year may have just begun, but I bet the Givenchy Sari collection goes down in the 2009 history books as one of the best looking collections this year. Don’t these compacts make you wanna shoop?”

Glitter Is Good: The Bobbi Brown Blushed Pink Collection

“This spring, Bobbi Brown is going beyond her famous “I’m not wearing makeup” bag o’ tricks and taking a chance on glittery pastel eyes with the Blushed Pink collection.”

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

P.S. Can’t forget MAC Hello Kitty! — but Tabs thinks of it as more of a celebrity release than a seasonal one. :)

    Hi!
    There is a lot to choose from this spring. I did eat my words and go back and buy the Mystic Eyes quad from Chanel which looked much prettier in person. I also bought the Leopard lippie thanks to you!! I was told by the Chanel makeup artist that Chanel will be discontinuing its sampling program. She did not know the reason-perhaps the economy. Even though I did get the quad, there is nothing that really excites me this season. Maybe I have the winter blahs or perhaps my spirit is affected by the bad economy. Here is an idea for you next column. How to look beautiful without spending a penny. I remember you had written about someone suggesting using burnt matchsticks for eyeliner. We’ll eat some beets and use the juice for lipstick and blush. hahahaha I am sure that during the Great Depression this is what some women had to do. Maybe when I go do the hairdresser on Saturday, I’ll tell her to give me a new hair color. But I have seen so many different hair colors that she has simply told me to buy some wigs!!!! How is that for a novel idea or do you think that she has a lot of nerve?
    Either way, honeybunch, have a marvelous preweekend evening. I am looking forward to those Oscars. Louise

    Aha, I was wondering if Mac Hello Kitty would make an appearance. There it is. :)

    Hi Louise Gray,

    Oh, heck YAH! I bet you are rockin’ the uber sexy in your Leopard Lipstick.

    Okay, call me crazy, but I had no idea Chanel had a sampling program. The fact that they have one and I never took advantage of it makes me hurt a little inside. Dagnabbit, Karl!

    What kind of haircut are you gonna get? I still have to make an appointment to get my “Vanessa” hair.

    Anyhoo, I hope you had a splendid Friday and that your weekend is tops!
