Paul and Joe Lipstick Cases CS Fall 2014 Makeup 1

.

Back in May, I was a little surprised to see that Paul & Joe would be releasing ten Lipstick Cases CS for fall 2014. (I suppose they do go hand-in-hand with all the new lipsticks (thirteen regular ones and three limited editions).) It was also a surprise for me that five of them would feature prints from past years, which I didn’t think would happen, even though the brand occasionally used past prints for its GWP items.

I stopped by Harrods earlier this month to have a look and I purchased seven of them. I also went for Lipstick in 107 Rose Sorbet, which is a very pretty rose pink and one of the thirteen new regular shades, but let’s look at the new Lipstick Cases CS today.

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.

Dior‘s spring 2013 Chérie Bow makeup collection has an abundance of feminine pink shades. The seasonal limited-edition star item, the Chérie Bow palette, caught my attention, and I decided to go for 002 Rose Perle, which I preferred to the more gray-toned 001 Rose Poudre.

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.

Dior Grand Bal Holiday 2012 Makeup 1

.

I was disappointed with the lack of the limited-edition star item in Dior‘s holiday 2011 makeup collection, and I had been looking forward to seeing what Dior was going to bring out for this holiday season. Dior’s holiday 2012 Grand Bal makeup collection features warm-toned shades for the eyes and rich reds for the lips. (It is good to see new Diorific lipsticks and nail colors.) The star item is the Grand Bal palette, and I decided to get it with my Boots points.

For fall 2012, Paul & Joe has revamped its lipstick range and brought out twenty new shades as well as six limited-edition shades. These shades fall into three categories: Clear, Natural, and Full Pigment. They are sold as refills, and alongside them are new lipstick cases. There are one regular case (Lipstick Case) and six limited-edition cases (five Lipstick Cases P and one Lipstick Case L). I was instantly attracted to the beautifully colorful Lipstick Case P 002. I decided to pick up this case and Lipstick in 104 Mademoiselle.
