For you lucky New Yorkers, Giorgio Armani is appearing at Saks Fifth Avenue on May
5th- that would be tomorrow - from 2:30-4pm to preview his Bronze Mania 2008 Collection. Meet Signori Armani when you make an Armani cosmetics purchase. The Bronze Mania collection consists of pretty much what you would think a collection called Bronze Mania would be. Lots of beautiful bronzes and golds to give you that sun-kissed look, or if you prefer, a sun-drenched look - but without having to bake in the sun! I like the sound of the Summer Foundation. In the summer, it is suggested to add bronzer to your foundation for a warmer glow, but this product eliminates that step and blends the bronzer in for you. I wish there were more shade choices - there's only two, like a one-size-fits all - fair to medium complexions and then tanned to dark complexions, which for a fair-skinned girl like me, often times the fair to medium can still be slightly dark, but I like the idea of this foundation and would like to try it out. For those of you who don't need/like foundation but still want a bronze finish, there are the Bronze Mania Skin Tints, with four shade choices. Also in the collection are some lovely lip glosses, an eye shadow palette that includes bronzing powder, and mascara that seems to have a bronze shade, but the website doesn't give a color name, only a thumbnail of the color, but it looks like the model in the above picture may be wearing it, and it looks gorgoeus. A great finishing, if unexpected, touch to a bronzed face.
