With the gracious permission of Tavia at Chic Profile, who always seems to have the 411 on upcoming makeup collections before anyone else, here is a photo of the featured products from Giorgio Armani Beauty's Transluminence Collection for Spring 2011. I checked with my PR friends at Armani Beauty to ensure that these shades would be launched in the United States - just so I wouldn't create any hopeless demand.
The collection is scheduled to be introduced in February in the U.S., which will be perfect for those of us clamoring for spring by then.
The photo shows the eye palette, the Armani quad design that's easiest to use (those little bull's eye shades in the Eyes to Kill palettes are hard to pick up with a brush - as much as I love them). I'm very eager to see how the forest green, dark blue, and dark iris translate for spring. I understand the color scheme only because I have seen Giorgio Armani's Spring/Summer 2011 midnight blue fashion collection, inspried by the nomads of the Sahara.
Naturally, with dramatic eyes, the makeup master showed light pink lips and cheeks - pretty, but not a distraction from the bold eye looks. There will be three new Rouge d'Armani lipsticks (all pink and much less intense than recent introductions). The face palette appears to be a glowing light pink that will be perfect for springtime or any time.
I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the collection. Are you intrigued?
Update 12/18: Tavia posted more photos here.
