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.

Muji Cheek Color Mix Type Pink 1

.

Two years ago, I wrote about Muji‘s Eye Color (4 Color Type) in Plum 01, which was my first makeup purchase from the brand. I particularly liked the texture of the powder so I thought I might try something else from the makeup range, and I decided to go for Cheek Color Mix Type in Pink.

Paul and Joe Compacts 004 006 Fall 2014 Makeup 1

.

For fall 2014, Paul & Joe released three limited-edition Eye Color Trios and three limited-edition Compacts (which work for both Eye Color Trios and Cheek Colors). I didn’t get any of the Eye Color Trios but I did go for two of the Compacts.

Canmake Cheek Gradation 06 Candy Stripe Summer 2010 Makeup 1

.

Canmake is a popular Japanese drugstore beauty brand with reasonably priced products, and it was on my list of brands to purchase from for years. (A few years ago, I tried a couple of Canmake items that were kindly passed on to me from a friend.) Some time ago, I decided to get Cheek Gradation in 06 Candy Stripe. (Since then, I picked up a couple more products, which I will talk about later.)

Jill Stuart Layer Blush Compact 01 Baby Berry Spring 2013 Makeup 1

.

Since I reviewed Jill Stuart‘s Mix Blush Compact in 01 Baby Blush, I have been going back to it quite frequently and it has gradually become one of my favorite blushers. In spring 2013, Jill Stuart not only released a new blusher, Layer Blush Compact, but also brought out Mix Blush Compact N (a revamped version of the original). There were ten blushers in the collection altogether, which was great for a blusher enthusiast like me. I was keen to try Layer Blush Compact, and I decided to go for 01 Baby Berry.

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.

Kao Sofina Primavista Ange Long Keep Base UV Spring Summer 2013 Base Makeup 1

.

Earlier this year, I reviewed Powder Foundation UV (Long Keep) from Kao Sofina Primavista Ange, a base makeup line developed for the Taiwanese market. (The line is not sold in Japan.) The products are formulated to appeal to those with combination or oily skin who need to cope with a warm and humid climate. Besides the powder foundation, I also purchased Long Keep Base UV and Liquid Foundation UV (Long Keep). (I rarely use primers or liquid foundations, but I was curious about them.) Today I am reviewing Long Keep Base UV.

Paul and Joe Eye and Cheek Color Set 001 Holiday 2013 Makeup 1

(So many cats in this photo……)

.

Since the Paul & Joe counter at Fenwick closed in May and there was nothing on sale at Paul & Joe at Harrods this summer, I thought I’d post about my winter sale 2013 purchases last December, which I didn’t manage to write about at the time.

RMK Ingenious Jelly Eyes JE-03 Mint Blue Summer 2009 Makeup 1

.

I went to Harrods earlier this month to see if there were items on sale at Paul & Joe. (The Paul & Joe counter at Fenwick closed in May.) There was no sale item this time. Instead, there was a 10% discount on all items. I left without any purchase (but I am certainly looking forward to the brand’s fall 2014 makeup collection). I then stopped by Selfridges and saw some RMK eyeshadows and blushers on sale. This was expected, since the brand released Ingenious Powder Eyes N and Ingenious Powder Cheeks N this summer to replace all the previous eyeshadow and blusher singles.

Paul and Joe Hair and Body Mist Holiday 2013 Bodycare Haircare Fragrance 1

.

I do love my fragrances, but, when the weather is warmer, I sometimes reach for lighter options such as body mists. (I hope my readers in the UK are enjoying the nice weather (despite the occasional rain).) One body mist that I recently purchased is Paul & Joe‘s Hair & Body Mist, which was released as part of Paul & Joe’s holiday 2013 bodycare collection. (It is not a seasonal limited-edition item.)
