In July 2010 fragrance and apparel retailer Burberry will launch a new cosmetics line in Nordstrom department stores nationwide. The collection will have 96 pieces, some of the items such as the lipliner which will retail at $24 and a foundation compact which will retail at $59. Some of the other items included in the collection will be eye shadow, lip gloss, lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, bronzer, liquid foundation, blush and translucent powder.

Christopher Bailey told WWD: “It started because I felt that, at shows and the shoots, the whole [Burberry] attitude is epitomized through the shoes, the bags, the clothes, the accessories, but then the face was the one thing I really struggled with. When we were doing makeup, I felt like we weren’t able to get the right attitude. It was either caked-on makeup or then just the wrong colors, the wrong tones, the wrong spirit for makeup. I wanted it to be this kind of effortless elegance.”

This should be no surprise..I am all over this line the minute it hits Nordstrom. Will you be sampling this luxurious line?
