YSL Rose Glow Collection Summer Fall 2014 Makeup 1

- I had a look at SHISEIDO’s Face Color Enhancing Trios for fall 2014 (£32 each). I was interested in PK1 (Lychee) (particularly the pink blusher), but the blusher shade turned out to be very pale. The whole variation was more for finishing and highlighting. All the other three variations didn’t really suit my skin tone.

Biteki.com has posted information on Ayura‘s holiday 2014 makeup collection. The limited-edition Dress Aura Up Coffret (¥6300) will be released in Japan on November 23rd.

The set includes a face powder, a lip gloss, a mini mascara, a lip serum, a hand cream and a makeup pouch. It is nice to see some new makeup items from Ayura as there haven’t been many new makeup releases from the brand since early last year.

Paul and Joe Lipstick Cases CS Fall 2014 Makeup 1

.

Back in May, I was a little surprised to see that Paul & Joe would be releasing ten Lipstick Cases CS for fall 2014. (I suppose they do go hand-in-hand with all the new lipsticks (thirteen regular ones and three limited editions).) It was also a surprise for me that five of them would feature prints from past years, which I didn’t think would happen, even though the brand occasionally used past prints for its GWP items.

I stopped by Harrods earlier this month to have a look and I purchased seven of them. I also went for Lipstick in 107 Rose Sorbet, which is a very pretty rose pink and one of the thirteen new regular shades, but let’s look at the new Lipstick Cases CS today.

On September 4th, Pola will launch Nocturnal, a new makeup sub-line under the existing Muselle makeup line. The collection is designed in collaboration with Japanese artist Kaori Miyayama. The products not only feature her illustrations but also embody the idea of “translucent dimension”, the essence of her artistic style.

I like the soft and elegant shades of Face Color (more images below). The three variations feature different illustrative designs, and there is something quite poetic about them.

Muselle Nocturnal’s debut collection, Sunset Colors, for fall 2014 includes:

Kao Sofina Primavista Ange Long Keep Base UV Spring Summer 2013 Base Makeup 1

.

Earlier this year, I reviewed Powder Foundation UV (Long Keep) from Kao Sofina Primavista Ange, a base makeup line developed for the Taiwanese market. (The line is not sold in Japan.) The products are formulated to appeal to those with combination or oily skin who need to cope with a warm and humid climate. Besides the powder foundation, I also purchased Long Keep Base UV and Liquid Foundation UV (Long Keep). (I rarely use primers or liquid foundations, but I was curious about them.) Today I am reviewing Long Keep Base UV.
