.

Sweets Sweets’ spring 2016 makeup collection features the new Premium Chocolat Cheeks. The concept of the packaging comes from the line’s Premium Gateau Shadow, which was launched in spring 2015. Also from the collection are the new Premium Chocolat Highlighter and Premium Chocolat Shading, both of which have the same dessert-themed packaging. I also like the new Fruit Tint Serum.

.

There is no doubt that Paul & Joe’s spring 2016 Papillons de Printemps makeup collection features prints with exquisite details, but I do feel that some of them can look slightly fussy and I miss the lovely floral patterns which the brand excels at. The new Powder Blush replaced Cheek Color from spring 2013, and 03, 08 and 09 look appealing to me. I also like Lipstick CS in 096.

.

Esprique’s spring 2016 makeup collection features the new Glow Cheek. Four variations are available, and my favorite is PK-2. If you tend to prefer shimmerless blushers, do bear in mind that the product has quite a glowy finish with fine shimmer.

Kesalan Patharan’s holiday 2015 makeup collection includes two Fantasy Collection sets. I like both of the Eye Color N palettes, and I also like the fact that the Mini Tote Bag features the brand’s colorful signature print.

SUQQU has been very good to its UK fans this holiday season. Besides the two 2015 Christmas Makeup Kits, the brand’s holiday 2015 makeup collection features UK exclusives as well as items from the Hankyu Umeda third anniversary collection.

Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée’s holiday 2015 Le Temps collection features makeup, skincare and bodycare items. The highlights for me are the two new variations of Mixed Face Color Rose Ladurée and the rose-gold case (Limited Edition Pot for Face Color Rose Ladurée).

.

At first, Chanel’s fall 2015 makeup collection didn’t excite me very much, but it kept growing on me. There is a quiet elegance about the rich and sumptuous autumnal hues. I particularly like Les 4 Ombres in 254 Tissé d’Automne (below), with olive green and warm brown.

.

Integrate’s fall 2015 makeup collection features the new Nudy Grade Eyes series. Based on some of the images I have seen online, it seems that the colors, the pigmentation levels and the finishes are all towards the natural side. I am currently interested in BR353.

.

I feel that some of Lunasol‘s recent seasonal makeup collections lack flair and imagination. Its fall 2015 Captivating Purification makeup collection has a chocolate theme, which we have seen for many times from other brands. However, Selection de Chocolat Eyes in EX01 Chocolat Noir, with its intensely dark shades, is not only the standout item in this collection but also one of the line’s more memorable eyeshadow palettes in the last few seasons.

.

Jill Stuart has always been known for its princessy look, and recently it has been bringing out products with particularly eye-catching packaging. Ribbon Couture Eyes and Everlasting Silk Powder Foundation Flawless Perfection have certainly caught my attention, and Forever Juicy Oil Rouge from the brand’s summer 2015 Juicy Lush makeup collection looks adorable as well.
