Who doesn’t love a sneaky peek of a forthcoming beauty launch? No one, that’s who – so here’s some of what’s incoming from Smashbox for AW13.

It’s the Fade to Black collection, it’ll land on August 21st and it’s all about taking shades from nude to night with two palettes – one warm and one cool – each of which’ll be €39.50. They’re Fade In (gold pearl to safari green) and Fade Out (soft peach to deep plum).

Also for eyes are two of the brand’s nicely smudgy Waterproof Shadow Liners. This pair are limited edition for the Fade to Black collection and will come in Blackest Black and Black for €19 each.

A nice small edit, it wraps up with two new shades of Be Legendary Lipstick, €19. Cognac is a warm nude, while Black Cherry is a sheer berry colour.

I dunno about you, but I really want to get a look at those palettes – they look very interesting indeed. Oh yes.
