"I have chosen shades that are indispensable," de la Renta told WWD. "Like a good red lip and a neutral highlighter for the cheekbones. Color has always been an extremely important part of who I am as a designer. It is wonderful to work with cosmetics because they are such an important part of a woman's sense of femininity."
At $150, the palette is certainly pricey, and it's also only available tonight during Fashion's Night Out at Bergdorf Goodman or the designer's boutique. A portion of the proceeds is going to the NYC AIDS Fund, so it's not just a selfish extravagance, either.
Of course, the majority of us aren't in New York, so for us this palette is more a preview of what could be in the pipe. So many designers already have a makeup collection, but if de la Renta came out with one, would you be in line to buy it?
