I currently have four variations of Sofina Aube Couture‘s Designing Impression Eyes, and today I am sharing my thoughts on 552 Brown, which was released in fall 2011. (Read my reviews of 553 Purple (fall 2011), 555 Brown (spring 2012), and 561 Purple (fall 2012).)

Kao Sofina Aube Couture Designing Impression Eyes 553 Purple Fall 2011 Makeup 1

.

Sofina‘s color makeup line, Aube, was revamped in December 2008 to become Aube Couture. I had a chance to see Aube Couture in person earlier this year and I was very impressed by the Designing Impression Eyes series, which was launched in fall 2011. I currently have four palettes from the series, and 553 Purple was the first one I purchased. It is my first ever item from Aube Couture, and therefore I am highlighting it in my Stash Debut 2012 series.

The Glass Reflection Eyes series (5 variations, ¥1575) was released in Japan on July 16th 2011 as part of the line’s fall 2011 makeup collection, and I went for the gold-toned BR-2.

Kanebo Lunasol Modeling Cheeks EX01 Soft Pink Fall 2011 Makeup 1

.

Most of the time, the products from Lunasol‘s seasonal collections that attract most of my attention are the eyeshadow palettes. However, for fall 2011, I found the Three-Dimensional Eyes palettes a little too muted for my liking and I was much more drawn to the two limited-edition variations of Modeling Cheeks (EX01 Soft Pink and EX02 Soft Coral). Since I tend to prefer cool-toned blushers and I already have Lunasol’s Contrasting Cheeks in 03 Light Orange, which is a very warm-toned shade, I decided to pick up EX01 Soft Pink.

From the crisp and zesty Lime Basil & Mandarin to the soft and romantic Red Roses, Jo Malone shows that clean and uncomplicated fragrances don’t have to be one-dimensional. Launched a few weeks ago, Wild Bluebell is another great example of seamless scent craftsmanship.
