In January 2015, THREE released Shimmering Lip Jam as part of the brand’s spring 2015 Let’s Dance makeup collection.

.

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 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.)

After YSL released Gloss Pur in 11 Icy Effect in summer 2011, I didn’t think there would be another blue-tinted lip gloss from the brand anytime soon. However, YSL’s holiday 2012 Northern Lights makeup collection, with an unusual blue color theme for the festive season, features Golden Gloss in 55 Arctic Blue. (It is called Blue Iceberg in Japan and perhaps other countries.) Yes, I had to have it.
