.

I am sure devoted fans of SUQQU have noticed that the brand’s makeup range has been changing over the last couple of years. The colors and tones are more varied as there are more non-neutral eyeshadow shades and more vibrant lip colors. The brand’s spring 2015 makeup collection is fresh and colorful. The three new variations of Blend Color Eyeshadow combine soft spring-like hues with neutral shades, which have always been the brand’s speciality. However, I am more drawn to the blushers and lipsticks in the collection. I picked up Balancing Cheeks N in 04 Mizuhanamoya and Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist in EX-16 Momobara and I will be reviewing them later.

It is usually the eyeshadow palettes that are the stars of Lunasol‘s seasonal makeup collections, but, in the line’s spring 2015 Elegant Purification makeup collection, the new Stain Color Lips lipsticks are claiming the spotlight. The seven shades feature what the line describes as a “soft matte” finish. The cooler shades (02 Pure Pink, 03 Energy Pink and 04 Fresh Pink) are particularly appealing to me.

Since Shiseido revamped Benefique Theoty in spring 2013, the line has been gradually adding new items to its lineup each season. Its spring 2015 makeup collection features five shades of Lip Gloss (Smile Aura). The packaging is feminine and romantic as usual.

When it comes to eyeshadows, purples and warm neutrals are the two color groups I go for the most, so it is great to see that the eye color items in Visée’s holiday 2014 makeup collection feature nothing but my favorite colors. Some of the Matte Nails shades are looking appealing as well, particularly PU100, a light lilac, and PK802, a lilac-toned pink.

Although some of the items from Dior’s holiday 2014 makeup collection look similar to those from holiday 2013, it is always nice to see more Diorific items. Apart from Diorific Golden Shock Illuminating Pressed Powder, I like Diorific Golden Shock Lip Duo and 5 Couleurs in 756 Golden Shock.

Looking like a box of candy, Cosme Decorte AQ MW’s holiday 2014 King of Sweets makeup collection presents some seasonal treats. Inside the bright and festive packaging are very wearable colors for the eyes, cheeks and lips. They create a fresh and sophisticated look that works all year round.

.

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.

Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée’s fall 2014 Le Coffre à Bijoux des Merveilleuses makeup collection features jewel tones in the products and on the packaging. Rich ruby red adorns Face Color Duo and Pressed Cheek Color Limited Case II while the two Eye Color Trios showcase vibrant amethyst and emerald.

Dior’s 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes have been renewed for the brand’s fall 2014 makeup collection. Even though I don’t fancy getting any from the launch lineup at the moment, it does feature a good range of colors and finishes. I am sure we will see more variations soon.

Kanebo Chicca Summer 2014 Makeup Top 10 1

.

For me, the highlights of Chicca’s summer 2014 Summer Horizon makeup collection are the lip items. The two new shades of Mesmeric Gloss On look eye-catching (the golden 04 Monochrome Gold and the pink 05 Moon Pink with sparse blue-toned shimmer). Among the three new shades of Mesmeric Lipstick, I like 08 Rose Glacé (the top one in the image), which is a red pink with a subtle rose undertone. It is an understated and elegant color.
