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.

Canmake launched Mat Fleur Cheeks in fall 2014 with three very pretty variations, and 04 Mat Romantic Mauve released in summer 2015 looks just as lovely. I am also tempted by the new Lip Tint Syrup.

Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée has a wide range of products and colors for the cheeks, and its summer 2015 Les Signes Astrologiques makeup collection features four new limited-edition variations of Mixed Pressed Cheek Color (which was first released in summer 2013.) My favorite among the four is 106, with an interesting mix of pink, peach, and green.

SUQQU Spring 2015 Makeup Top 10 1

.

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.

Canmake Fall 2014 Makeup 1

.

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.
