I don't know if its because Katy Perry made Aliens sexy last year with her hit single "Extraterrestrial"
Or if Charlize Theron made us all want to be able to fit into a space suit in Prometheus (in theaters now)

As soon as I heard the name, I expected 'cosmic' looking palletes with TONS of shine (think stars reflecting off a space helmet!) and I don't think they are going to dissapoint!

Its like having your own Galaxy in a compact!
I also love the "Cremesheen" Gloss shades, they are hyper-shiny!
Aside from new colors, they also added some skincare items under the "Charged Water" name, such as this moisturizing eye cream
and three new brushes with 'fiberoptic' ends to distribute the multitude of color in these new blushes and shadows
Two of the items I have my eye on is this ultra nude lipstick in "Cusp of Dawn" for $14.50
And I snapped up the Mineralize Skin Finish in "Lightyear" for $29, which is perfect for highlighting!
to apply a highlighter you have to make sure you get temples, chin, and the brudge of the nose
applying highlighter won't make you look shiny & greasy (especially not these mineral formulas, they actually soak up oil!)

And remember that it is all about the eyes, so go dramatic:
