Impulse Buy of the Week - Christian Siriano Collection for Victoria's Secret




Christian Siriano is absolutely on fire (and yes, "fierce")! Since competing on one of my favorite reality shows (pretty much the only one I watch), Project Runway, Siriano has entered into several very creative and smart business ventures which allow him to expand his amazing design sense to areas outside of his runway fashion collections.

He's signed on to create a line of shoes for Payless to launch during Sept. Fashion Week (also inspired by the same theme as the makeup, which is Egyptian design/hieroglyphics), has shopaholics already chomping at the bit.
Now he's just launched his very first cosmetics collection for Victoria's Secret, the Christian Siriano Collection! The collection interprets the themes of his Fall 2009 fashion collection with soft, luxurious textures and strong, rich colors.

As soon as I saw the gold packaging, the color palette and of course the super feminine (and yet uniquely done) ruffles on his cosmetic bag - I knew I had to have it - all of it.

Here are some of the highlights of the collection, which is available online and in Victoria's Secret stores.

This is the zip around clutch/cosmetic bag. It is so pretty and frilly it can be used as an evening bag or cosmetic bag (yay!). It's covered in Siriano's signature ruffles, in a cocoa patent finish. The collection interprets the themes of his Fall 2009 fashion collection with soft, luxurious textures and strong, rich colors.

Christian Siriano Silky Eye Shadow (shown, above). These are just fantastic! The colors are rich and unique with fantastic pigment. They have a rich, creamy smooth texture that made the easy to blend. Fantastic price too! Note: The shiny gold is very pretty, but fingerpints do get left behind, so if you're a stickler you will have to wipe them after use to get it gleaming again.
Here are my favorite colors:

Sandstorm - Beautiful rich champagne with touches of pink and gold.

Royalty - Very dark brown with a touch of red - matte texture. Will look great on all skin tones.

Gilded Fierce - Super glam sparkling black with gold shimmer.


Kjal Eyeliner in Eclipse - A rich brown/burgundy that glides on like a dream and had fantastic lasting power. This can be applied on the thicker end of the pen for a more dramatic look or for a really intense cat eye effect. - RLB
