(continued from Part 1 and Part 2)

#3: Jill Stuart

(from Biteki September 2007)

When I knew there was going to be a new pressed powder blusher for Jill Stuart, I was trying to imagine what it would look like. I have to say the actual packaging doesn’t disappoint me, to say the least. Very ornate and princessy. (I will review this later on.)

The limited-edition Point Crystal II loose eyeshadow (pictured mid-right) rides on the success of the previous Point Crystal from last fall. This time, the shades are slightly more intense. Overall this is such a pretty collection.

#2: Dior

(from www.dior.com)
(from Biteki September 2007)

The 5-color eyeshadow palette in 060 Silver Goddess (the right one of the two palettes) is so fall 2007, with great shades of grey and silvery copper. If you have tested the blue shade in this palette, you know that it has vivid pink shimmer. So very pretty. The two eyeshadow palettes also complement the two Diorissime palettes (far right).

Currently only two Dior Blush shades are sold in Japan, while a larger selection is available in the US and the UK. There is actually a shade called A Touch of Blush. Well, not exactly the name of my blog, but close enough. (And it is a great natural shade!)

The Diorissime palettes finish off the collection beautifully. I have 002 Seduction Drama (the one available in the US) and I love it.

#1: Lunasol

(from www.kanebo-cosmetics.jp/lunasol)
(from Biteki September 2007)

This is the best collection for fall 2007 in my opinion. It is also one of the most stunning collections from Lunasol.

All the items for eyes, lips, and nails coordinate with one another and come in five mini collections. Each features a 5-color eyeshadow palette, an eyeliner, a lipstick, a lip gloss, and a nail color. Among the eyeshadow palettes, the one in blue (04 Saphire) and pink (05 Ruby) are very popular in Asia right now, and they certainly tickle my fancy!

I know this is off topic, but have you heard that Calvin Klein is once again launching a cosmetics line? There will be a launch party on Sep. 27!

Hello there,

Thank you for stopping by!

Yes, I know that Calvin Klein Cosmetics is actually coming back! I was told that a counter had just been launched in Hong Kong several days ago.

If you are interested and if you haven’t, you can read my earlier post on this. Towards the end, there is a link to an article with more information…:)

Looks like it will be available in the UK as well!

hi PJ,

sorry to post this late, here’s some photos I taken of CK and Inoui ID:


For the CK collection, I didn’t have time to try them on that day, and the price is very reasonable, say a lipgloss is HKD 130, I think the packing is different from before, with plastic black and white packing. Overall it didn’t impress me very much, the skincare line will out around December.

And the Inoui ID, it’s quite difficult to ask every single items price, since I’m not buying anything by then, and since I am not sure about the yen price, so it’s hard to tell you, I guess everything is around 100yen=HKD10 or over. However if you see from the picture anything you are interest, I can go and ask for it.

Japanese brand is the best, I like Jill stuart and Lunasol, for Jill stuart I bought 2 new powder blushes and all of their eye jelly available, plus many lip stuff. They are launching new skincare product in October, such as eye cream, hand cream etc.

For Lunasol new series, I have already bought eye palette no.1,2&5, still thinking to buy no.4, and have bought all the liquid eyeliners since they are all so beautiful. May buy lipgloss no.4 too. Oh the palette no.5 is not very easy to handle but still charming, no.1 may make your skin look yellow, but no.2, oh I luv it so much, so gorgeous!!!! Every time I wear it I got praise from ppl. You must try it!

Hello Sin5409,

Thank you very much for telling me about your new finds!

As you can see, I absolutely love Jill Stuart and Lunasol. They are really some of the best lines around, not just among Japanese brands. Lunasol is polished and sophisticated, and Jill Stuart is ultra-cute with with very solid quality. I love all the Lunasol and Jill Stuart items I have so far.

Looks like you have got quite many of their new fall 2007 items. You must be enjoying using them very much!!

Thank you for leaving a thoughtful comment again! :)

Hello Sin5409,

By the way, I have sent you an e-mail regarding CK and Inoui ID. :)

Hello Sin again,

Please don’t apologize. You are too kind…

Thank you so much for sharing your photos. They are fantastic. Thank you for taking the time!

I agree with you. I have to say I prefer the old packaging. But it is good that the prices seem reasonable. I still look forward to testing them out when they are launched in the UK!

Thank you so much for the photos again!
