Cezanne Silk Touch Cheek 01 Pink Fall 2012 Makeup 1

.

After 2012, the Stash Debut series is now back as a regular series, and I will continue to share my thoughts on items I purchased from brands/lines I hadn’t purchased from before. Today, let’s have a look at Cezanne!

Cezanne is a Japanese drugstore beauty brand. Launched in 1964, it will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year. The brand is known for its affordability and consistent quality. The packaging of the products is usually kept very simple. I wanted to try products from Cezanne for quite some time, and, earlier this year, I decided to go for Silk Touch Cheek in 01 Pink.

Paul and Joe Cheek Color 03 Gigi 08 Candy Spring 2013 Makeup 2

.

Since last year (when the brand celebrated its 10th anniversary), Paul & Joe has been revamping some of its makeup items. Last fall, the lipstick range was relaunched, and the packaging features peach bases and white caps with more pronounced chrysanthemum motifs and the new PJ logo. This spring, the blusher range (Cheek Color) was renewed and it features the same style of packaging. I really like the new case and many of the color variations, and I decided to pick up 03 Gigi and 08 Candy.

Liz Earle Natural Finish Pressed Powder 02 Sheer Ivory 1

.

Founded in the UK in 1995, Liz Earle has been a well-established skincare brand for years. Many of its skincare products that I have come across are antioxidant-rich and without the irritating alcohol or fragrant plant oils. In recent years, the brand has branched out into fragrance, haircare, and makeup. In 2011, I reviewed Sheer Skin Tint SPF15, which is one of the first products in the brand’s makeup range. Today I am reviewing Natural Finish Pressed Powder in 02 Sheer Ivory and Healthy Glow Powder Blushes in 02 Blossom and 06 Nectar.

Paul and Joe Winter Sale 2012 1

.

It was the sale time again, and I had to stop by the Paul & Joe counters in London to see what was on offer. (See my Paul & Joe sale purchases in 2010 and 2011.)

Paul & Joe’s sale items are usually past limited-edition items, discontinued (replaced) products, soon-to-be-discontinued products, and overstock. For this winter sale, many Lipstick N shades and Face Color variations were on sale, since the new lipstick lineup was released in fall 2012 and the new range of blushers (Cheek Color) will be launched soon as part of the brand’s spring 2013 makeup collection.
