New Year, New Makeup! Spring 2012 Collections Top Picks

Happy 2012! Here's to a new year of looking forward! 2011 wasn't the best year for me, so here's hoping 2012 will be much much better!

So let's look ahead at the Spring 2012 makeup releases from some major brands! Thanks to Maquia we can view a look book of all the new products online here. Thanks very much to Rouge Deluxe who tweeted this link!

So what are my picks for Spring 2012?

Coffret D'or Smile Up Cheeks Blush

Okay, this was actually a Winter 2011 release, so it's available now, but I'm getting it. Only have to decide which colour because I really don't need to buy multiples! >_<

Check it out on Coffret D'or's website. You can get this now from Ichibankao.
There's also a commercial on youtube here too.

Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N

On 13th January Jill Stuart is releasing two limited edition eye jellys in 17 Murmuring River and 18 Bird Flutter. Bird Flutter has caught my eye. It's the coral shade and it looks amazing! It's limited edition, so hopefully I'll manage to get my hands on it. For some close ups of this and the rest of the Jill Stuart Spring release, check out Fruity Lashes. These retail for 2310 yen and you can find out more about them on Jill Stuart's website here.

Now available on Ichibankao

Anna Sui Rose Cheek Color Blush 

These blushes are gorgeous! I love the rose pattern and the colours are lush. I'm really tempted by the highlighter too. It looks so lovely. There's a great preview of these over at Fruity Lashes, check it out! These release January 5th and retail in Japan for 3675 yen.

Anna Sui now has these up on their website here too and you can order from Ichibankao too!

Lunasol Petal Pure Eyes Eyeshadow Quad Palettes

Lunasol has released some amazing eyeshadow palettes and I have been looking forward to this Spring 2012 release since I first saw some pics on FrauW's website back in November. Here's the link direct to a preview pic of the eye shadows. These are so lovely and full of subtle sparkle. Love love love.

You can also see them on Lunasol's website here.

Update: These are now available on Ichibankao

You can also see some swatches on the following blogs here:


Paul & Joe Beaute Face & Eye Color CS and Matte Pressed Powder

I don't even know where to start with this! So adorable. Yes, I am a total sucker for the cat motif,  but Paul & Joe cosmetics have a good rep and I've been meaning to give them a try for ages. These limited editions may just force me to get some - finally!

Here's a couple more shots from Paul & Joe Beaute's website that I can't resist sharing!

I've got two picks from this collection, and both are limited editions! Eeep.

First is the Face & Eye Color CS which is a face and eye shadow trio of colours. I've never actually bought a face and eye palette before, so I'm kind of a bit weary, but seriously how cute are those cats! I really wish there was a Paul & Joe counter I could check them out in person as I really need to see if it's really love or just kitty love!

According to Maquia these release in Japan on 3rd February, but already has them for sale online here.

My second pick is Matte Pressed Powder. I don't have too many powders, so this is actually something I'm in need of. How cute is that cat? And the little paw print on the puff! Gah, I love love love it! I think I love this so much I'd buy it without seeing it. Well, that depends on how much it's going to cost me. I haven't seen this for sale anywhere yet, but *fingers crossed* it will appear on Asos too!

Fruity Lashes also has a good look at these products worth checking out!

Update: Asos now has the Matte Pressed Powder here too! 

So those are my top picks for Spring 2012. What do you think? What collections or products are calling to you?
