Here is a quick look at two items from Dior‘s upcoming spring/summer 2014 Diorsnow makeup collection that caught my attention. The very pretty Fresh Blush (above) features soft medium-to-warm hues, while the 5 Couleurs palette in 874 Tenderness (below) includes pinks and peaches that echo the blusher shades.

Purple is a versatile color. It can be cute, sensual, sophisticated, vibrant, and edgy. It has also been one of my favorite colors for many years. (See my A Splash of Color: Lilting Lilac (Part 1), (Part 2) & (Part 3).) After a relatively short hiatus, it is great to see purple back on trend for spring 2014. Here are my top 10 purple picks for this season:

Here is a quick look at Dior‘s spring 2014 makeup collection. The seasonal limited-edition collector’s item is the Trianon Palette. Available in two variations (001 Favorite (below) and 002 Coquette (above)), the palette looks similar to the Dior Chérie Bow palette from spring 2013 but contains a blusher instead of a lip gloss. I like the colors in 002 Coquette.

Lavshuca’s fall 2013 makeup collection features red cases for the products. This is a new look for the line, but I still prefer the original (pre-fall-2012) packaging. I like some of the variations of Melty Heart Eyes and the gradational look of Melty Trick Cheeks in this collection.

Here is a look at some of the highlights of Dior‘s fall 2013 makeup collection. The two limited-edition 5 Couleurs palettes feature rich autumnal colors. I like the slightly unpredictable color combinations. The violet looks very striking against the lighter and the more somber colors in the palette.

Chanel stayed with soft neutrals, pinks, and plums in the last few seasons, which is why the brand’s summer 2013 makeup collection, Collection l’Été Papillon de Chanel, is a very pleasant surprise. Blue, turquoise, and green are joined by pink and gold to create a long-awaited colorful collection. I particularly like the limited-edition Les 4 Ombres in 44 Métamorphose (below).

The spring 2013 makeup collection from Elégance includes two new variations of Phantom Eyes and one new variation of Fabulous Rouge. All of them feature delicate floral patterns, and I like the soft spring-like colors of Phantom Eyes in 28.
