Beaute de Kose Summer Collection 2008

mrc item

Beaute de Kose never fails to wow me with its special releases. This Summer we have the Limited Edition Multi-Reflection Powder in two color versions. The powders are a multi-colored shimmering powder for face or if you like you can try them out on your eyes. The colors available are Strawberry Ice and Peach Frost. Each palette is 4,500 yen each which isn’t too bad for the high quality of the compact!

I think these may make a guest starring appearance on my Summer wish list but I want to see what else pops up before I purchase!

Love these?

Images of Spring in Japan

My very awesome mate and reader, Betsy, has gotten her Japanese Spring haul in! Lucky duck! I’m still eagerly sitting by my mail box awaiting my Spring goodies!

Betsy was kind enough to e-mail me last night and give me a low down on her goodies plus pictures!

You have Betsy to thank for these gorgeous pics!

Have a lookee:

You might remember me blogging about Beaute de Kose’s Cyber Shining Eyes Palettes that were released this Spring (You can click here for details on the release).

Betsy ended up getting the 002 variation of the palette and I’m drooling! The palette is absolutely gorgeous! She says that the palette reminded her of YSL’s White Gold Palette and I must say I agree!

The colors look very metallic and quite sparkly! I love any LE’s that Beaute de Kose does as the always end up something special and this palette is most definately yummie!

Betsy picked up two of the new Jill Stuart Seductive Eye Palettes as well. I’ve dodged the Seductive Eye palettes bullet for a while now convincing myself the colors would be matte and boring but after seeing these images I’d say I’m back on board and the lemming force is strong! I guess they aren’t so matte after all! Looks like lots of chunky glitter, shimmer, and sparkle! Betsy says indeed they are full of beautiful sparkle and the only color that’s a bit matte would be the 2nd shadow which can be used as a base for the other shadows in the palette! As you can see from the pictures below the palettes are astoundingly drool worthy!

Finally we have one of the new Lunasol Palettes and as always it’s gorgeous! I’m impressed with the newest palettes this year as they have many good, solid color combos that mix well together and I want at least two!

Overall, Spring in Japan is turning out very nicely!

Thanks for the pics and impressions Betsy!

Beaute de Kose Cyber Shine Eyes Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palettes

eeebeayute

One of my absolutely fav lines in Japan is Beaute de Kose. They have a fine line of cosmetics and I always love the LE products that are released. These Cyber Shine Eye palettes are most definately on my wish list! Don’t let the picture fool you I’m positive these pack a mighty shimmer and shine contrary to the picture looking matte and ordinary!

Cyber Shine Eyes is available in two color variations 01 and 02! It appears 01 is Blues, Purples, and other cool tones while 02 consists of a Gold, Beige, and other warmer tones!

I want both to be honest!

Not only am I loving the colors the palettes include (and the promise of sparkle) but I’m loving the compact itself. It’s such a slick and shiny affair! Very nice!

The palettes are sadly not cheap at 4,800 yen per compact. That’s a bit hefty for a four color palette which somehow, in my weird twisted mind, leads me to believe these should be quite gorgeous!

Anyway, these are most definately on my Spring Collection wish list!

Beaute de Kose Star Twinkle Collection

As you read in my prior blog one of my packages was lost for a few days! A majority of what was in the package wasn’t of much importance however these little gems were in that package and had me crying tears of joy when it finally popped back to me!

Avast Ye! Behold! This be the treasure that was lost at sea!

Umm..nothing to get too excited about here! Where’s the sparkle? The shimmer? The glitter? The shine? Did they make some sort of mistake? Was it lost with the package? The powder, as far as I can see and feel, has absolutely no sparkle to it at all! The twinkle has left the building. I’m seeing nothing in the way of glitter here! I’ve only swiped it very lightly but I can say confidently this may very well be a waste of money but it sure is pretty to look at isn’t it? Did I just contradict myself? Oops! This is a first impression but so far I’m a bit disappointed!

The collection isn’t a total lost because I also got the Twinkle Cream shadows and these are fantastic! Bloody brilliant! Tons of shimmer, sparkle, and glittery bits are to be had! As I said before I don’t do cream shadows! But these come with my highest recommendation! The Muse loves ‘em! She not only loves what’s inside but she’s loving the outside as well! The packaging is as sweet as candy!

Personally if you’re a collector I’d go for the entire lot but if you’re just wanting to get one or two I’d go with the cream shadows and skip the powder! The purple and peach are nice colors but the real pudding is the gold, pink, and silver colors!
