I got my very first Cosme Decorte haul a few days ago! This isn’t really a review as of yet just my general impressions of the items. I’ll follow with a review and FOTD shortly.
Mmmm……..Not sure what I think of this quite yet. I really love how beautiful the palette is for sure. It’s an array of five colors which includes a beautiful gold sparkling base that I’m loving. The four other colors are two accent colors one deep mustard and one cranberry, one nuance color which is a bubblegum pink color, and finally a shading color which is a dark chocolate brown.
The palette is entitled Classy Sexy and if the colors are anything to go by that’s exactly the look you can pull off with this! A beautiful, classy, slightly sexy eye look!
I’ve never been tempted to order any of the palettes prior to this as they carry a high price tag of $55 USD or so which seems absurd to say the least, hell even Givenchy and Chanel is $5-$6 cheaper than this!
But I did come across a rather large stash of Magie Deco on one of the shops I was discussing in my prior Guide to Japanese Cosmetics Shopping post. I got this from Facial Shop and I ordered the palette for $44.99 USD which is a damn deep discount.
I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the palette as of yet. It’s very beautiful but I do feel a slight tinge of disappointment at the price tag.
The palette itself is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful shiny pink mirror compact with gold edging that’s very elegant. Inside are the five shadows and two brushes. And still after all this I’m wondering at the price tag! I guess I have to try it to see if it’s really worth it in the long run!
I also picked up a Fairy Eyes which is a shimmering cream shadow. This is pretty brilliant. Yes, I normally have a deep dislike for cream shadows but I couldn’t resist one that was so full of sparkle, shimmer, and shine. I got mine in a frosty white and after swatching it I’d say the sparkle and shimmer is just right and I’m looking forward to using this as an all over wash with a beautiful black liner for an understated, yet elegant look! This normally retails for $20 USD or so but I got it from Facial Shop for $17.99 USD! Mind you the prices also include shipping so obviously you can see it’s a super deal!
I’ve been wandering around the Cosme Decorte website for ages and I literally drool at the model images and looks created using the products but I fail to have the same wow aspiring feeling I did when I finally got a palette for my own! Maybe the color selection is the problem? I’m unsure!
The instruction booklet is available both in Japanese and English which I appreciate greatly. I wish they included an eye chart but I imagine I can get tons of inspiration off the website as they have many great eye charts available to look at!
All in all I am liking the items but haven’t yet felt any love for the palette! I’m hoping once I try it out for myself I’ll feel quite differently!
Review and FOTD to follow very soon so keep your eyes open!
