Lancome Spring 2009 Pink Irreverence Collection Preview

Aaron de Mey, the man who brought us Lancome’s completely-sold-out Color Fever Gloss in Piha Black, has created a *gorgeous* spring 2009 collection, Pink Irreverence. The collection is inspired by the black volcanic sand from New Zealand’s Piha Beach where Aaron grew up, and is all about dark sparkling eyes with hot pink lips.

Laque Liner
This comes in two colors – Pure Black and Piha Sparkle. Pure Black is an intense black color while Piha Sparkle is colorless and can be applied on top of your regular liner for a glittery effect.

Color Design Pink Punk and Black Palette
This eyeshadow quad contains a fuschia, black, pale rose and baby pink. Totally hot!

Color Fever Gloss
This will come in nine new shades including Piha Black, which was part of a limited edition set that debuted last November. Piha Black can also be used on the eye area for a truly smoldering glossy eye look.

Le Vernis in Piha Black
This is a gorgeous black color with glitter. It is said to be similar to Dior’s Black Sequins.

The collection is already available in stores in the UK and will hit the US later this month.

I have always *loved* pairing black and fuchsia together and I want the palette and Piha Black gloss! What do you guys think?
