.

Lancôme collaborated with Sonia Rykiel for its fall 2016 makeup collection. The Sonia Rykiel Draws Paris for Lancôme collection features the designer’s iconic multi-colored stripes, which can be seen on the packaging of La Palette Saint Germain, Cushion Blush Subtil and Parisian Lip Le Crayon.

Sadly, Sonia Rykiel passed away on August 25th. I will always remember her sense of style (and her hairstyle).

.

THREE’s fall 2016 Walk the Line makeup collection features the new Epic Mini Dash (below, in 01-07 (from left to right)), which can be used on the cheeks and the lips. (03, 04 and 06 look quite appealing to me.) The five new shades of Whisper Gloss for Eye (above) include a very pretty purple (10).

Dior’s fall 2016 Skyline makeup collection features the new Diorshow Mono Gloss (pictured below (named Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky in the UK)). 184 (middle) and 564 (right) look quite appealing, and they are the highlights of the collection for me.

.

Anna Sui’s summer 2016 makeup collection features the limited-edition Lip Color Stain (above) and Face & Body Powder. I like the colorful tropical print on them, but the bottom halves of the cases seem uncharacteristically plain. The highlight of the collection for me is Limited Ring Rouge (below), which is a limited-edition re-release (with different shades) of one of Anna Sui’s classics.

.

June is usually the time when Coffret d’Or releases a new regular series of eyeshadow palettes, but, this year, there will be five limited-edition variations of Beauty Summer Palette in July. Each variation features three eyeshadows and two lip colors, and the slim case resembles the case for Beauty C Curve Eyes from 2010.

.

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.
