Come One, Come All was created to work for everyone, with shades that are perfect for all skin and hair colors. It was launched today at the Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show at the Montgomery Mall store. I didn't attend the trend show, but I did pop over to the store to meet up with my friends from Le Métier de Beauté. While I was there, I purchased Come One, Come All.
I was excited to meet Tawni Hart, EC Regional Beauty Director for Nordstrom. She gave me the names of the four shades. Here they are, top to bottom.
- Haute Honey
- Tawni Taupe
- Montgomery Mauve
- Bethesda Brown
Actually, all four shades are drop-dead gorgeous. I must lobby for a Tysons Galleria Kaleidoscope!
Here are two swatch photos, taken quickly in full sun when I got home from the store. I swatched top to bottom (in the shade order listed above), using a sponge-tipped applicator and a heavy hand.
Haute Honey, a shimmering fleshy peach, is the perfect base shade. It has a perfect name too. Look at Tawni Taupe! Brilliant, gleaming taupe-grey (or greyed taupe). It could not be more gorgeous. Montgomery Mauve is also cleverly named after the store, mall, and county. Its a lively red-toned coppery mauve that I'll apply on my face more lightly than I did for these photos. The pure dark chocolate brown, Bethesda Brown takes the signature color of Bethesda, Maryland, and recreates it for the eyes.
I rushed this feature into "print" so that you could see Come One, Come All and call the store to order your own special Kaleidoscope. You can still be one of the 75 lucky ladies to own one. Just call Nordstrom at Montgomery Mall at (301) 365-4111 and ask for the Le Métier de Beauté counter. It's a little crazy in there today, given the show, so you may have to wait a few minutes to be helped. Hang in there. This Kaleidoscope is definitely worth a small investment of your time.
Update: I applied Montgomery Mauve as a blush this afternoon, and it was exquisite! That's how this fair-haired gal will be wearing it.
Update 11/21: It appears that the bottom two shades in Come One, Come All were duplicates for the bottom two shades in Silk Road. A Best Things in Beauty reader was the first person to bring the similarities to my attention - not too long after she got Come One, Come All. Since then, I have seen other bloggers, who own Silk Road (I don't), point out the similarities, most recently Sabrina at Beauty Look Book. I don't understand it because it was supposed to have been designed by Nordstrom. Come One, Come All sold out, so if you wanted those bottom two shades, it looks like you can purchase them in Silk Road.
