.

For holiday 2014, Paul & Joe released Makeup Collection 2014 as part of its holiday 2014 makeup and bodycare collection. I was instantly attracted to the lovely floral print on the eyeshadow case and the makeup pouch. The item is available in two sets, and I went for 001 Little Star.

(So many cats in this photo……)

.

Since the Paul & Joe counter at Fenwick closed in May and there was nothing on sale at Paul & Joe at Harrods this summer, I thought I’d post about my winter sale 2013 purchases last December, which I didn’t manage to write about at the time.

RMK Ingenious Jelly Eyes JE-03 Mint Blue Summer 2009 Makeup 1

.

I went to Harrods earlier this month to see if there were items on sale at Paul & Joe. (The Paul & Joe counter at Fenwick closed in May.) There was no sale item this time. Instead, there was a 10% discount on all items. I left without any purchase (but I am certainly looking forward to the brand’s fall 2014 makeup collection). I then stopped by Selfridges and saw some RMK eyeshadows and blushers on sale. This was expected, since the brand released Ingenious Powder Eyes N and Ingenious Powder Cheeks N this summer to replace all the previous eyeshadow and blusher singles.

When I was looking through the variations of Paul & Joe‘s Eye Color Trios for spring 2014, I was sure I was going to go for 02 Mon Petit Chaton. I was less certain about 03 Le Jardin des Fleurs (I will explain the reason below), but I did decide to purchase it.

Kanebo Coffret d'Or Beauty Collection Total Designing Set EX-2 Fall 2012 Makeup 1

.

For fall 2012, Kanebo Coffret d’Or released four limited-edition sets of Beauty Collection Total Designing Set. Each set included a variation of Beauty Face Shadow, which was first released as part of the line’s late summer/ early fall 2012 makeup collection. As I really liked 02 Cream Brown from the collection (it is still among my favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow palettes), I decided to go for Beauty Collection Total Designing Set in EX-2, featuring Beauty Face Shadow in 05 Lavender Purple.
