.

There is something quite Japanese about Bobbi Brown’s Surf & Sand Eye Palettes for summer 2014. Japanese beauty lines, such as Lunasol, often release eyeshadow palettes with warm neutrals and those with combinations of neutrals and greens/blues for summer, and the Surf & Sand Eye Palettes remind me of them.

Based on the information on Paul & Joe‘s fall 2014 makeup collection, it appeared that 8 of the 20 Lipstick shades (launched in fall 2012) would be discontinued. I noticed earlier that Paul & Joe had updated its official website to feature the collection, and we now know exactly which 8 shades will be discontinued:

Paul and Joe Eye and Cheek Color Set 001 Holiday 2013 Makeup 1

(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.

Paul and Joe Hair and Body Mist Holiday 2013 Bodycare Haircare Fragrance 1

.

I do love my fragrances, but, when the weather is warmer, I sometimes reach for lighter options such as body mists. (I hope my readers in the UK are enjoying the nice weather (despite the occasional rain).) One body mist that I recently purchased is Paul & Joe‘s Hair & Body Mist, which was released as part of Paul & Joe’s holiday 2013 bodycare collection. (It is not a seasonal limited-edition item.)

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.

- I have learned that the Paul & Joe Beauté counter at Fenwick Bond Street in London was closed yesterday.

This is such a shame. Most of my Paul & Joe purchases were made there, and I really liked the spacious counter with a relaxing atmosphere. The staff members there were exceptionally polite and friendly, and I want to thank them for being so helpful to me over the years.

Harrods has the only staffed Paul & Joe Beauté counter in London at the moment. The Paul & Joe section in the Beauty Workshop at Selfridges Oxford Street is unstaffed.

Dior’s spring 2014 Trianon makeup collection has a diverse range of colors, with shades of pink, peach, green, blue, purple, and gray. The highlights of the collection are the two Trianon Palettes, but some of the other items, such as the Trianon Editions of 5 Couleurs, Diorshow Mono and Diorblush, look impressive as well.
