Kanebo Milano Collection 2015 Holiday 2014 Base Makeup Fragrance 1

(image from www.kanebo-cosmetics.jp/milano-collection)

.

A few days ago, I came across this blog post, which discusses the differences among the three versions of the face powder from Kanebo’s Milano Collection (Kanebo, Kanebo Twany and Kanebo Impress). Since I am often asked about this annual limited-edition collection for the holiday season, I thought I’d also talk about these three versions (particularly the three versions of the face powder from the upcoming Milano Collection 2015).

(The information in this post is mainly from the blog post mentioned above, the Kanebo website, and my readers’ and my own observations and experiences.)

Kanebo Chicca Summer 2014 Makeup Top 10 1

.

For me, the highlights of Chicca’s summer 2014 Summer Horizon makeup collection are the lip items. The two new shades of Mesmeric Gloss On look eye-catching (the golden 04 Monochrome Gold and the pink 05 Moon Pink with sparse blue-toned shimmer). Among the three new shades of Mesmeric Lipstick, I like 08 Rose Glacé (the top one in the image), which is a red pink with a subtle rose undertone. It is an understated and elegant color.

Shiseido Integrate Summer 2014 Makeup Top 10 1

.

Integrate’s summer 2014 makeup collection features two new variations of Rainbow Grade Eyes, and both look very appealing. I particularly like RD715 with its mauve pink (which reminds me of Coffret d’Or’s 3D Lighting Eyes in 04 Purple Variation), and I also like the bronze beige in the limited-edition 2 Summer Girl.

Kanebo Coffret d'Or 3D Gradation Eyes 02 Mint Brown Late Summer Early Fall 2013 Makeup 1

.

I have been picking up at least one variation of each of Kanebo Coffret d’Or‘s eyeshadow palette series since the launch of the line in 2007. With 3D Gradation Eyes, released as part of Coffret d’Or’s late summer/ early fall 2013 makeup collection, I was choosing between 02 Mint Brown and 04 Rose Purple. I decided to go for 02 Mint Brown.
