.

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.

Kao Sofina Aube Couture Designing Puff Cheek 424 Rose Summer 2013 Makeup 1

.

One of Sofina Aube Couture‘s main aims is to make makeup application as easy and straightforward as possible, and it is not difficult to see how the line tries to achieve this with its product designs. (See my post on Aube Couture’s user-friendliness.) One good example of this is the design of the line’s eyeshadow palettes (Designing Eyes, Designing Shine Eyes, Designing Impression Eyes and Designing Impression Eyes II). The colors in the palettes are arranged in a way to show where they are applied on the eye areas. In the same vein, the line’s Designing Puff Cheek, launched in summer 2013, attempts to make blusher and highlighter application quick and simple.

Last fall, Elégance presented an updated look with Nouvelle Eyes. The new packaging, while in keeping with the brand’s glamorous gold color theme, is sleeker than what we saw from the more ornate Phantom Eyes and Aurora Storm, which were first released in 2009. For spring 2014, there are three additional variations of Nouvelle Eyes and the new look is also seen on the new Sleek Face cream blushers.
