MADISON, Wis., Dec. 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Women's web-based fashion retailer Shopbop.com, the premier online shopping destination for the fashion-forward woman, debuts a SEPHORA COLLECTION Palette Color Play 5 in 1 limited-edition palette inspired by Shopbop's forthcoming "Faces of Fashion" editorial lookbook.

The set includes five distinct color palettes, each with ten eye shadows, two lip colors, and one blush in color stories that correspond to five iconic figures in fashion.

Perfect for busy girls on the go, the palette comes with a portable mirror compact.  Simply select one of the five different "looks" (palettes) and pop it into the portable compact.

  • Interchangeable color palettes include: A Nod to Mod (bright blues, greens, pink, purples)
  • Angelic Boudoir (nudes, sands, with a touch of bright blue and fuchsia)
  • Black is the New Black (black smoky eyes)
  • Boho Bombshell (dark blues, warm taupes, warm golds)
  • Classics Never Die (brown smoky eyes)

Retailing for $30 ($125 value) the Color Play 5 in 1 palette will be available December 26, 2010 on Sephora.com. The "Faces of Fashion" lookbook will launch on Shopbop.com on December 29, 2010.

Shopbop and Sephora will also co-sponsor a sweepstakes in conjunction with the launch of the palette. Beginning December 20, 2010 and ending February 2, 2011, the Faces of Fashion sweepstakes offers entrants the chance to win a year's supply of makeup from Sephora and a $2500 shopping spree at Shopbop.

"Fashion and beauty are inextricably connected, so it seemed fitting to bring them together in an editorial feature," says Shopbop Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch. "Our customer loves Sephora, so we're thrilled to partner with them on this project."

"Sephora is thrilled to partner with Shopbop on this limited edition palette," commented Catherine Gore, Director of Merchandising for SEPHORA COLLECTION.
