Fall collections are usually my favorite releases as they offer the smoky dark colors I really dig. I was quite excited when I got the offer to purchase the Maquillage fall collection especially considering that it's not released before mid July 2008 (isn't it great to try something out first before others can buy it? =P ).
It's a nice collection consisting of eyeshadow trios, lipsticks and blushes.
-Forming Shiny Eyes: This is an interesting new product in the MQ lineup. It's a small pot containing a powder shadow duo (highlighter and dark color) and a cream shadow base in an extra compartment. The shadows are very silky and medium pigmented with beautiful intense pearl shimmer. the lighter shade is more pigmented and shimmery than the accent color.
There is also a small drawer with an eyeshadow applicator in the bottom of the pot.
51: Emerald/lilac-y white; white cream shadow)
52: Cool blue-toned violet/yellow gold; pink cream shadow
54: Dark plum/light golden peach; pale pink cream shadow
55: Dark gray/golden pink; silvery cream shadow
I didn't get 53 which seems to be a brown/golden combination.
-Design Cheek Color: A blush consisting of 4 color from light to medium in pink or orange so you have a highlighter and blush in 1 compact. It seems quite shimmery but I haven't tried this yet really so can't say if it's just a glittery overspray on top. You need to purchase the Design Face Powder case separately (it's available in black and white). There are 2 colors: 70 (orange tones) and 80 (pink tones).
-Color Fix Climax Rouge: 12 new colors added to the range. Color Fix Climax Rouges are pretty glossy lipsticks with decent staying power. I purchased 3 colors from the fall line-up:
PK394 (a pretty muted pink), RS208 (a cool-toned lavender pink), BE305 (a neutral creamy beige brown).
Updated June 18 2008:

PK357 (light golden peachy pink), RS349 (a pretty metallic medium berry pink), RD700 (a satiny red-beige):
