Kanebo Lunasol Vivid Clear Eyes 04 Khaki Beige Collection Spring 2013 Makeup 1

.

When I saw the initial images of Lunasol‘s Vivid Clear Eyes from spring 2013, I thought the neutral-toned variations seemed a little too light for me. Later on, I had a chance to see the range in person and I decided to pick up 04 Khaki Beige Collection.

SUQQU Blend Color Eyeshadow EX-26 Yuuaoi Fall 2015 Makeup 1

.

Pink and purple are my favorite color combination for eyeshadows, but I also like warm brown and dark blue. When I came cross the information on SUQQU‘s fall 2015 makeup collection, the limited-edition Blend Color Eyeshadow in EX-26 Yuuaoi immediately caught my attention. When I tested the palette at the counter later on, I was a little unsure about the tone of the brown shade (more explanation below). However, I still decided to purchase the palette mainly because I liked the color combination.

Kose Visee Glossy Rich Eyes BR-5 Gold Brown Fall 2013 Makeup 1

.

Kosé Visée had a major renewal in fall 2013. The line used to have an edgy vibe but it did start to release items with a more feminine look before the revamp. The new look, with dark cases and intricate details, appears to be quite popular. One of the three eyeshadow palette series launched in fall 2013 is Glossy Rich Eyes, and I decided to go for BR-5 Gold Brown.

Kao Est Emotional Multiple Eyes 11 Spring 2010 Makeup 1

.

Est was launched by Kao in 2000. Excluding brands from companies acquired by Kao Corporation (such as Kanebo Cosmetics Inc.), Est is currently Kao’s only department-store beauty brand in Japan. It was launched as a high-end range under Kao Sofina and it used to be sold at Sofina counters in department stores. (“Est” used to stand for “Essence of Sofina Technology”.) Since it became independent from Sofina a few years ago, it has been having its own department-store counters. (Sofina is now mainly available in drugstores and pharmacies in Japan.)

Jill Stuart Ribbon Couture Eyes 04 Gemmy Cashmere Spring 2015 Makeup 1

.

Jill Stuart, in its 10th year, seems to be going through a renewal. So far in 2015, there has been at least one new product for every season (Ribbon Couture Eyes for spring, Forever Juicy Oil Rouge and Stay True Gel Eyeliner for summer and Rouge My Dress for fall). There are also new foundations (Everlasting Silk Powder Foundation Flawless Perfection for spring/summer and Rich Moisture Silk Powder Foundation for fall/winter). Moreover, from mid-August, Jill Stuart counters in Japan will have a new look.

Earlier this year, I decided to go for Ribbon Couture Eyes in 04 Gemmy Cashmere, which is the second eyeshadow palette I got from the brand (after Brilliance Eyes in 04 Gem Amethyst back in 2007).

NARS Christopher Kane Parellel Universe Outer Limits Starscape Summer 2015 Makeup 1

.

A couple of things stood out for me when I was looking at the initial images of NARS Christopher Kane Neoneutral Collection for summer 2015. Firstly, I liked the neon pink NARS logo with Christopher Kane’s name across it. Secondly, the bold color of Blush in 4056 Starscape looked appealing to me. I stopped by NARS a while ago and thought I would probably only get Starscape, but I gave in and picked up Duo Eyeshadow in 3903 Parallel Universe and Shimmer Eyeshadow in 2095 Outer Limits as well.

A few months ago, I shared my thoughts on Addiction’s Lip Gloss in 033 Factory Girl in my Stash Debut series, and today we will look at THREE and Shimmering Color Veil in 35 Shadowland, my first purchase from the brand.
