Good day everyone! I just received a media alert from MAKE UP FOR EVER about an event coming up this weekend at Sephora stores across Canada (that includes our new store here in Hali!) – the Smoky Eye Event, on August 26th, 27th, and 28th. This event is focused on the launch of the new Smoky Couleur Collection for Fall 2011 (all products out this month).The collection is described as “eye make up essentials inspired by the rich, jewel tone fabrics seen on the Fall 2011 runways,” and is a “vibrant new take on an all-time classic,” the smoky eye. It provides “a number of different ways to wear the eye catching look and adapt it to every mood, occasion and outfit.”
Check out details and pics of the collection below!
The Smoky Couleur collection includes a limited edition Smoky Eye Shadow Palette, four new shades of dramatic Smoky Lash mascara and three new ultra-creamy Khol Pencils — all in an array of bold, yet wearable colors.
NEW LIMITED EDITION SMOKY PALETTE
This customized, collector’s palette features eight MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Shadows that can be used to create five different smoky looks in brown, blue, purple, green and classic black.

NEW SMOKY LASH COULEUR
The ultimate mascara for volume, length and curl is now available in four new hues. Boasting the same lash boosting formula and unique elastomer fiber brush as the original best seller, Smoky Lash Couleur delivers a dramatic faux lash effect in seconds. Each new shade is extremely concentrated with brown, green, blue and plum pigments so the mascara instantly coats the lashes with intense color.
• Smoky Lash #3 – deep brown
• Smoky Lash #4 – green
• Smoky Lash #5 – dark blue
• Smoky Lash #6 – plum
Retail value: $24.00 / each
These soft, creamy pencils have an extremely blendable texture and are now available in pearly deep blue (#8K), matte mocha brown (#9K) and pearly black purple (#10K). Khol Pencils can be used to line the eyes for a more intense, striking look, and can easily be smudged for the perfect smoky eye. Additionally, the soft texture makes them ideal for rimming the inner eye. Apply above and/or below the lash line and blend to create a pigment-rich smoky eye.
• Kohl Pencil #4K – intense pearly green
• NEW Kohl Pencil #8K– pearly deep blue
• NEW Kohl Pencil #9K– matte mocha brown
• NEW Kohl Pencil #10K– pearly black purple
Retail value: $19.00 / eachNo RSVP is necessary to participate in the event, just stop by any Sephora store across Canada to enjoy a free touch-up with a MAKE UP FOR EVER expert! In addition, you’ll receive a complimentary, limited edition MAKE UP FOR EVER carry-all tote with a purchase of two or more MAKE UP FOREVER products.
I’ve always wanted to try some of the eyeshadows from MAKE UP FOR EVER so this might be a great opportunity to do so. The Kohl Pencils also look fantastic! I love jewel tones
Be sure and let me know if you stop by Sephora this weekend to check out the event. If anyone does and is brave enough, send me a snapshot of the look you got! I’d love to see what look you get – Christine from Temptalia had a makeover at MAKE UP FOR EVER recently, and it was amazing!!
Enjoy the rest of your Monday everyone!
