Available in 9 shades, the English name is simply Rouge Allure Gloss but the Japanese name adds a "Click" at the end. A simple push to the top of the tube causes the lipgloss applicator to pop up.

Tokidoki x LeSportSac

The new Tokidoki collection for LeSportsac is finally available on the Tokidoki website. As it was their original collaboration with LeSportsac in 2005 that started my Tokidoki obsession, I couldn't be happier that they have teamed up again. This year, Tokidoki has really been hitting it out of the park with a frenetic pace of collections. It's tough on the wallet for collectors but it's great to see one of my favourite brands make such a strong comeback after some lacklustre years in which the quality of its bags was uneven.
Simone Lego will be making his usual appearance at the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention from 6-7 September. Don't miss it if you're a fan!

Jill Stuart Christmas Coffret 2014

Voce magazine tweeted this pic of the Jill Stuart Holiday Coffret 2014 which will be released on 7 November in Japan. Looks like a ballet-theme this year with the corset ribbons and frilly tutu of the pouch. Last year's awful strawberry-themed coffret sold out in three days so expect this to sell out even faster than that. See more pics on Biteki.

Esprique Limited Edition Foundation Brush

Esprique will be releasing these two limited edition designs of their Foundation Brush in Taiwan. It's not listed on the Japanese website so this might not be available in Japan. Pic from UrCosme.

Ettusais Lip Essence Treatment

Coming up next from Ettusais is a new Lip Essence Treatment (10g, 1200yen) formulated with six botanical ingredients including jojoba oil, orange oil, aloe extract, rosehip oil, rosemary extract and chamomile, all cultivated on Ettusais' own organic farm. Designed to be a beauty essence treatment for moisturising the lips, it is free of fragrance, artificial colourants, parabens, mineral oil and alcohol. This will be launched on 11 September in Japan.

Dolly Wink Hand Cream & Body Cream

Dolly Wink, produced by Tsubasa Masuwaka, will launch its first ever bodycare products on 3 September in Japan. The Hand Cream (40g, 900yen) and Body Cream (100g, 1300yen) have a sweet strawberry and tropical hibiscus scent and pomegranate, chamomile and camellia flower extracts.

Chanel Holiday 2014

Voce tweeted this pic of Chanel's holiday makeup collection which will be released on 21 November in Japan. Wonder if the eyeshadow palette will feature the same eyeshadow formula as their much-loved Ombres Perlées de Chanel from 2011.

Jill Stuart Body Oil & Bath Essence

Jill Stuart will release a limited edition Body Oil (100ml, 3000yen) and Bath Essence (300ml, 3000yen) on 3 October in Japan. See the pic here. The body oil is a blend of grapeseed oil and rosehip oil with a white floral fruity scent.

Suqqu Holiday Coffrets 2014

Here's a sneak peek at Suqqu's two holiday coffrets which should be released. As in previous years, each coffret includes an eyeshadow quad and two skincare products. This year, Suqqu has included a lip color in a round compact instead of their usual mascara. It looks like there is a cream shade in each of the eyeshadow palettes. The pouch is once again rather disappointing for such a luxe brand. No details on the release date yet, but last year's holiday coffrets were launched on 1 November in Japan. This year's coffrets look too generic so hopefully, their Spring 2015 collection will be more interesting. Pic below tweeted by Suqqu MA Tomoko.See a look created with the holiday collection here.

Suqqu has also finally opened another counter in London at Fenwick, which Paul & Joe recently pulled out of. Hopefully, this means an easier time for customers to get hold of their elusive limited edition collections.
