Ever since Lisa Eldridge joined Lancome, I have been noticing some lovely new product launches, and the new Lancome Audacity in Paris eyeshadow palette is the latest from the brand.  I have been looking forward trying this mostly because it's the first product designed by Lisa Eldridge for Lancome.  Also, it's a neutral-smokey palette - what's not to like about that?!  The palette feels a bit heavy in the hand and is not very sleek to hold, but the weight does make it feel quite sturdy and safe to travel with.  Inside the palette are 16 eyeshadows in shades ranging from soft mattes to shimmery smokey dark colors.  There is a large/long mirror on one side (with some black embossing over it which does cover a bit of the mirror), and included with the palette is a useful dual-ended brush.  Scroll on for more photos and swatches.

Bobbi Brown seems to come out with a new makeup range or product almost every month, and while I do end up swatching and sharing most of them on the blog here, I don't think I have ever been truly excited about any of these releases.  The Bobbi Brown Intense Pigment liners are an exception - those mini pigment shadow palettes are a must-have, but for the most part, everything else seems quite similar to existing or older collections.  Given the trend, I was not expecting much from the Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color lipsticks either, but from packaging design to colors, this is one makeup launch you definitely need to check out.  These brand new lipsticks have a beautiful gold packaging, and they feel heavy and luxurious in the hand.  The formula is rich and glossy, and the colors are bight and rich.  There is a mix of neutrals and softer corals and nudes in this range, and there are some deep reds and plums.  Here's a look at the swatches.

Laura Mercier is a brand I tend to miss out on quite often, but I did check out the Laura Mercier Lip Parfait lipsticks last weekend (thanks Bee!), and they are awesome!  These Lip Parfaits are infused with vitamins and butters to moisturize the lips while leaving them drenched in rich vibrant color.  The lipstick has the shine and texture of a lip balm, gliding on glossy, shiny color in one swipe.  There are some rich vibrant colors in the range - bright corals and reds - as well as some glossy nudes.  Here's a look at the swatches.

Guerlain KissKiss RoseLip Balms are part of the Guerlain Fall 2015 makeup collection - Bloom of Rose.  Inspired by the natural beauty of the rose, these tinted lip balms come in 6 soft, romantic shades ranging from charming reds to romantic pinks.  Enriched with hydrating and plumping rose extracts, these lip friendly balms give lips a sheer wash of color. The packaging is similar to the Guerlain KissKiss lipsticks except the RoseLip Balms come in a white lacquer packaging (as opposed to the black of the regular Guerlain KissKiss lipsticks).  Here's a look at the swatches.
