Released in holiday 2014, Dramatic Rouge was the product with which Shiseido started the renewing process for Maquillage.

Stella McCartney Stella Eau de Parfum Fall Winter 2014 Fragrance 1

.

Stella McCartney‘s Stella Eau de Parfum is one of my favorite fragrances. When I heard about its relaunch last July, I was worried that the scent would be tweaked. Even though the information I came across at the time suggested that it would remain the same, I thought I would only be convinced when I had a chance to smell it. Now I am relieved to say that it is the same, and today I will talk more about this well-crafted fragrance.

When it comes to eyeshadows, purples and warm neutrals are the two color groups I go for the most, so it is great to see that the eye color items in Visée’s holiday 2014 makeup collection feature nothing but my favorite colors. Some of the Matte Nails shades are looking appealing as well, particularly PU100, a light lilac, and PK802, a lilac-toned pink.

Although some of the items from Dior’s holiday 2014 makeup collection look similar to those from holiday 2013, it is always nice to see more Diorific items. Apart from Diorific Golden Shock Illuminating Pressed Powder, I like Diorific Golden Shock Lip Duo and 5 Couleurs in 756 Golden Shock.

Paul and Joe Hand Cream R Holiday 2014 Bodycare 1

.

Earlier, I talked about Paul & Joe‘s Makeup Collection 2014 in 001 Little Star and Pressed Powder T in 001 Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star for holiday 2014. Today I will share my thoughts on Hand Cream R from the collection.

The floral print on Paul & Joe’s Face & Eye Color CS in 073 42nd Street & Lipstick C in 072 SoHo from the fall 2011 makeup collection is among my favorite prints from the brand, so I was excited to see it on Hand Cream R from the fall/winter 2014 bodycare and fragrance collection. (In the UK, the three Hand Creams are part of the holiday 2014 collection. The two Fragrance Hair & Body Mists are not available in the UK).

Looking like a box of candy, Cosme Decorte AQ MW’s holiday 2014 King of Sweets makeup collection presents some seasonal treats. Inside the bright and festive packaging are very wearable colors for the eyes, cheeks and lips. They create a fresh and sophisticated look that works all year round.

Dior Diorific Golden Shock Illuminating Pressed Powder 001 Gold Shock Holiday 2014 Base Makeup 1

.

I have always liked the golden curvy bottles and cases of Dior‘s Diorific items, so it has been nice to see new Diorific items for the holiday seasons in 2012, 2013 and 2014. For holiday 2014, Dior released Diorific Golden Shock Illuminating Pressed Powder. It is fairly similar to Perfumed Illuminating Powder for holiday 2013, but I did decide to get it after getting the one from last year.

.

SUQQU seems to be doing well in the UK. Its first retail point in the UK (at Selfridges London, launched in 2006) is no longer a small counter in the back of the beauty hall (now Beauty Workshop, which is better-organized), and it was launched at Fenwick Bond Street in August. Then, on November 5th, it debuted at Harrods.
