最想買的!! Maquillage!! 眼影腮紅口紅都想全包...
(English readers- comments are on very bottom of post, please click on the above article title in light blue text to expand this post, though this post is mostly about pictures than words =D )
Suqqu is a Japan exclusive so far I believe, it's quite pricey...
Jill Stuart- 又玩粉紅梗...
The same pink looks...
(Which is a drugstore line)
Kanebo Coffret D'or (I dont find the lipstick swatches too helpful though- neither is the main website, however if you like light to medium shades, most colors are really user-friendly and foolproof, other than a few really dark ones in the swatches you might want to check out first before purchasing sight unseen.
Ayura- again, mostly sold in Japan.
Sofina Aube Couture
Aube Couture is the new line replacing "Aube", it's a bit more pricey, however I think they are also trying to grow into a more mature brand. I'm quite excited about this! purchased a few items already, need to find time to try them.
Giorgio Armani Pink Lights collection- again, super overpriced brand as we all know it...I think the botton left is the 'Blending Cheek Duo' in #4- Rosewood and something..can be seen on official website, RRP60USD (booo)
Estee Lauder and Clinique
對這次那盤Estee Lauder 腮紅修容盤很有興趣說...好美... iswii.net 上有美圖.
Clinique 那四款限量眼影也很美,剛買下等著運來. (那粉紅的是眼影而不是腮紅). 前幾年是同樣的花樣, 大盤些,是腮紅. 這次變成出眼影囉.
Guerlain Paradis 嬌蘭印象天堂...這個牌子最近也越做越美到過份,不過價錢也有點過份了
Lunasol- blossom collection
hrrrm a tad weaker this year, nice colors but not very exciting, just variations of spring shades really..
Biteki is one of the top Japanese beauty magazine much like Voce and Maquia (comparable to what Allure is in the US I suppose). Every quarter they release a special pamphlet which features almost EVERY single brand's seasonal collection (not just usual boring promo pictures but literally every item of the actual product), so you can see lipstick shades in actual colors and all the eyeshadows or even eyeliners/ eyebrow pencils all under professional photos!
Along with the pics you also have with a quick description of the product (e.g. this eyeshadow is meant to feature a sheer iridescent finish, or this lipstick line is a pigmented creamy finish), and whether product is Limited Edition (yes the word that makes all women crazy.. =P ) in addition to Japanese RRP prices and color codes/ full names (unfortunately not with English product names too- but I can always figure it out in the end by comparing against official website).
Best of all is the main magazine body often uses those products on models, and in this little pamphlet it also notes like 'please refer to page 90 of the main magazine' where a product in the pamphlet featured in spring collection was applied to a model. How neat is that! so you can see great swatch pics on the model. (of course there's some photoshopping but I find the colors quite accurate).
Above are some extracts from magazine on things I want to get, there are so any pages in this supplment, I only took a few pics of the ones I'm interested in. (please message me if you can see www.makeupalley.com posts, I can send you the bigger picture links). Respecting the copyright of the magazine, I highly recommend purchasing the magazine if you could (though this magazine RRP is 550Yen in Japan yet I can only find it for $19AUD in Australia, hello! what a ridiculous markup!)
