Paul and Joe Makeup Collection 2014 001 Little Star Holiday 2014 Makeup 1

.

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.

In the last couple of years, Canmake has been releasing new items almost every month, and it is not always easy to group them into seasonal releases. Glow Fleur Highlighter was released in July and Mat Fleur Cheeks was released in October, and I am considering them to be fall 2014 items. Both products are follow-ups to Glow Fleur Cheeks, released in fall 2013. Glow Fleur Highlighter looks really pretty, but I think Mat Fleur Cheeks looks even better.

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.

Bobbi Brown Summer 2014 Makeup 5

.

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.
