Kose Visee Glam Glow Eyes GR-4 Fall 2011 Makeup 1

.

Happy New Year, everyone!

In my first post in 2012, I will be sharing my thoughts on Visée‘s Glam Glow Eyes in GR-4. The Glam Glow Eyes series (available in 5 variations) is from Visée’s fall 2011 makeup collection. I have previously reviewed BR-3.

Kose Visee Glam Glow Eyes BR-3 Fall 2011 Makeup 1

.

Visée‘s Glam Glow Eyes series is from the line’s fall 2011 makeup collection. From what I have read, with its lovely packaging and easy-to-wear tone-on-tone color combinations, the series appears to be very well-received. After the positive experience with Visée’s Glam Shade Eyes in GR-5 (from spring 2011), I decided to go for Glam Glow Eyes in BR-3 and GR-4. Today I am reviewing BR-3.

3rd: SUQQU

SUQQU Fall 2011 Makeup Top 10 1(image from www.suqqu.com)

.

SUQQU’s fall 2011 makeup collection is a relatively small but perfectly formed collection. Earlier I reviewed Blend Color Eyeshadow in 08 Mizuaoi & Face Color Palette in EX-01, and they are both beautiful items. The eyeshadows are gorgeously creamy and Face Color Palette is a solid multi-purposed product.

When I reviewed SUQQU’s Creamy Glow Lipsticks in April, I mentioned that I thought SUQQU would probably bring out a sheerer range of lipsticks in the next few seasons. It turned out that I was right. I tested the limited-edition Creamy Glow Lipsticks Moist at the SUQQU counter, and they are considerably sheerer than the very intensely pigmented Creamy Glow Lipsticks. (But they are not overly sheer.) They also have a glossy finish that appeals to me. I hope there will be a more permanent range of sheer and glossy lipsticks from SUQQU later on.

Kose Visee Glam Shade Eyes GR-5 Spring 2011 1

.

New phase, new brand.

After a couple of years of on-and-off investigation, I decided to start bringing greens into my usual repertoire of pinks, purples, and neutrals. Not just any green, but warm olive-toned greens, preferably with a gold undertone. (I don’t think cooler jewel-toned greens would suit me.)

Visée is a popular drugstore makeup line from Kosé. Glam Shade Eyes in GR-5, from the line’s spring 2011 collection, is not my first ever Visée item (see pictures of my Dual Shine Rouge Palette from holiday 2006, my first Visée product), but this is my first ever eyeshadow product from the line. The obvious warmth of the shades and the tone-on-tone color combination (which is great for me to play with the different shades of green) are the main reasons why I decided to get it.

10th: Elégance

Elegance Fall 2010 Makeup 1(image from www.elegance-cosmetics.com)

.

Even though some of the colors in Elégance’s fall 2010 makeup collection don’t appeal to me, I like how the theme of the collection, Operatic Queen, is reflected by the way the colors are arranged in the Phantom Eyes palettes. The packaging of the items is opulent and classy as always.
