Go wild with animal prints!

August 11, 2008

First came the leopard prints and now croc and python patterns. The oh-so-hot animal motif has not only owned the runway this season, but even some of the latest beauty products.

Bourjois’ Imperfection Concealer ($15) claims to conceals dark circles & imperfections with a melt on the skin formula for full coverage. Highly concentrated in mineral pigments, it effectively covers dark circles and imperfections. With its cute leopard print packaging and built in mirror, you’ll look your best wherever you go! Don’t hide behind your beauty. Go on a beauty Safari!

Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Feline Blacks Mascara ($~30) promises to deliver intense volume and audacious length. Its generous formula enriched with ultra-black pigments combined with an exclusive brush featuring anti-clogging bristles precisely tames lashes for an intensely captivating look.

Dior Impression Cuir Leather Couture ($55) is a trio of pearly, chocolate-hued eyeshadows, artfully stamped with this season’s popular croc pattern. Give your lids a luminous glow with Dior’s new eyeshadows that are etched with a cool, croc pattern. The base color is slightly raised in the pan to indicate its “primal” importance to any look, from soft to smoky. Create more drama by shading the balls of the lids with the rich mocha or dark chocolate shades. These shadows are silky, feather-soft, and easy to blend.

For the first time, Giorgio Armani harmonizes three eye shadow colors in one palette, creating the Giorgio Armani Python Palette ($100) for a sophisticated and distinctive look. The seductive shades of gray taupe, dark iridescent gray and luminous gray pearl reveal different tone-on-tone looks to feature on the eye. The palette also includes two new stunning Armani Silk lip shades. These sophisticated fall tones, a deep red and an elegant mauve, are perfect for a glamorous night out or for everyday use.

Widely renowned for their precision and quality, the new Tweezerman Animal Print Slant Tweezers ($25) come in fun, exotic animal prints. Perfect for eliminating even the most stubborn stray hairs, these professional-quality tweezers are the perfect tool for all your hair-removal needs. Use the point to tweeze smaller hairs and the broader more slanted side for general tweezing.

    Hi there 🙂 I think you accidently switched #3 and #4, because the numbers don’t match the description. (#3 pic=dior, #4 pic=GA) Thought you’d like to know 🙂

    My favorite is zebra print Tweezerman tweezer! It’s so cute. Well, for Armani to charge $100 for eyeshadow is a crime… to me.

    Such hot products, not just the packaging but the actual product goes with the theme.

    I really like the look of the python eyeshadow with the mixed colors. I want it!!
