Dior will release an exclusive makeup collection to mark the opening of Dior Perfume & Beauty Omotesando Boutique in Tokyo. The limited-edition Omotesando Collection will be exclusive to the boutique, which will open at Omotesando Hills (a shopping complex) on Omotesando on October 9th.

The collection includes the Fleurs de Vent blusher, a 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette and two Rouge Dior lipsticks. Inspired by windmills, the star of the collection is the gorgeous Fleurs de Vent, with the four letters of “Dior” stylishly and beautifully arranged. (It is simply too pretty to be used!)

There is something quite Japanese about Bobbi Brown’s Surf & Sand Eye Palettes for summer 2014. Japanese beauty lines, such as Lunasol, often release eyeshadow palettes with warm neutrals and those with combinations of neutrals and greens/blues for summer, and the Surf & Sand Eye Palettes remind me of them.

Here is a look at Dior‘s summer 2014 Transat makeup collection. The seasonal limited-edition collector’s item is the Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition. Initially, I thought it looked just like some of the Diorskin Nude bronzing powders from the last couple of years. However, the Transat Edition is more of a champagne-gold finishing powder. I like the rope design details, which evoke a sense of journey and adventure.
