For the Christmas 2012 makeup collection Armani takes inspiration in the various nuances of cold winter days, especially in the moonlight which brings out translucent reflections.
There are four products in the collection and am I personally very interested in one of them which is LIP MAESTRO Colour Zero, Instant lip enhancer (£25)
This is basically a top coat which mattifies other lip products or can be used directly on the lips. It is promised that the colour will still look luminous and the lips will stay hydrated.
All-in-one White Night Palette (£60)
Two (LE) palettes that come in a black lacquer case which include: Frosty Highlighter, two eye shadows and a matte lipstick.
Moonlight Beige Palette: Beige shimmer powder, two taupe eye shadows and Beige lip wax.
Moonlight White Palette: Snow-like

The look was created by Jenn Streicher who was inspired by Emily’s Miu Miu dress and wanted to create a modern Veronica Lake look with bronzed dewy skin, simple eyes and gorgeous red lip.

There are seven palettes and each contains five shades (5 x 0.035 oz) , the textures vary from matte to shimmer.
The colours are:
I have already mentioned so many new lipstick launches here, here and here, but today let’s take a look at even more new and awesome releases. We all know that one can never have too many lipsticks. An although I personally can’t even fit all my lipsticks into my drawers, I want all of these. Ahem.
And even if you do not need anything, theses days the brands create such beautiful images, videos and the stories behind each product that you feel like you have to indulge. Very clever strategy.
“Covetable comfort meets confident color in a high-pigment formula that glides like a gloss, cloaks like a lipstick—and feels like nothing else.
