Well lookiee what the Muse came across on the Laneige Singapore site!
It’s the Summer Collection!
I was shocked to see the Laneige site had updated for Summer on the Singapore site only and not the Korean! I was thinking I’d see the update on the Korean site prior to any of the other global gateways!
Go Singapore (lately you guys have been really up to date with the cosmetic collections!)!
The release appears to be very small with some shadows and a lipstick but I’m unsure of all the details as of yet! As soon as I know I’ll definately keep you posted!
As always the promo model image is gorgeous! It’s a very edgy look they created using soft colors. I think perhaps the edge comes from the haircut the model is sporting!
I’m interested in getting my hands on some of this collection to review for you guys so stayed tuned!
On a side note I’m behind on comments please know I’ll get to them soon! Sorry for the delay! Life sometimes gets in the way of blogging on occasion! Love you all!

I was browsing around the Laneige site a few weeks ago and I came across the The Secret of the Snow Crystal Snow Radiant Blushers. Sounds like an epic motion picture! Now playing The Secret of the Snow Crystal starring Bai Ling!
I’m not entirely sure if these were from the Holiday Collection or not and after much discussion and debate with a friend we decided that maybe they were something available from the Korean side of Laneige only!
I ended up getting the entire three that were released because they simply reminded me of MAC Mineralized Skinfinish and I rock Mineralized Skinfinish so that meant I’d be sure to shower love all over these!
These were about the same cost as an MSF and honestly they have the potential for converting non MSF users. Some folk hate Mineralized Skinfinish because they are glittery and shimmery. A wide range of the colors released thus far have contained chunky bits of glitter and not everyone likes to hose themselves down with glitter the way the Muse does!
Those of you who may have ranted that MAC’s powders have some major shimmer will be delighted to know that these perform the way you probably hoped for from MAC. They highlight, create a soft glow on your face, and enhance your blush minus the shimmer and glitter.
The powder is soft and silky and easy to blend. The effect that these create is what I call a sort of photo finish glow. You can use these on natural bare skin or over your blush. I personally like to use them over my blush. You can also contour areas of your face for extra highlighting if you prefer.

I think they are quite a nifty powder to add to your beauty arsenal and a wonderful alternative if you’re not loving the amount of shimmer you get from a MAC Mineralized Skinfinish!

Laneige’s Spring Collection has launched in Korea and is making it’s way across the Asian board. Most of the Laneige sites haven’t yet been updated with the new collection but it is out and available in Korea (lucky you if you live there!)!
It’s quite a beautiful collection!
Although, I want some of it I may refrain as I haven’t even dug into my Winter Collection from Laneige yet!
The collection consists of a loose powder, eyeshadow palette, and blush palette! The packaging is quite beautiful and I’m having a hard time not purchasing all of it!
I’m not sure which Asian countries are getting the update aside from Korea and China. I’m also unsure what the import to Singapore will be and if available the price range as sadly Singapore gets hit with a bit of a price jack.
The Loose Powder 30,000 KRW (approximately $31-$33 USD or so). The blusher carries the same price tag while the eyeshadow palette is a big lower in price at 28,000 KRW (approximately $29-31 USD).
Expect to pay a raise of about $9 -$11 USD per item online. I’m noticing the powder popping up online for $39-40 USD and the blush and eyeshadow palettes at around the same.
Point makeup instructions are available on the Korean site if you want to know what was used on the model and how to achieve the look.
Overall, another beautiful offering from Laneige!
Laneige released a Limited Edition Palette a few months ago entitled Darling Big Eyes. I originally saw this on Kathi’s reviews (Click here to visit her) and I knew I had to have it!
After searching for this in a few countries (Singapore, China, Japan, Etc…) I failed to locate it. It’s like Where’s Waldo to locate this damn thing! Seriously, I’ve had problems locating cosmetics in the past but this particular palette was ridiculously elusive. After some serious hard work I ended up giving up on it and chalked it up as being something I’d lem for life but never own (how dramatic am I?).
A week ago I got a random package in the mail and low and behold when I ripped open the envelope out spilled the very difficult to locate Darling Big Eyes Palette!
Oh Joy! I was crying in excitement! Turns out a “virtual” friend of mine on MUA had sent it to me as a little present as I gifted her a bunch of tarts and a warmer a few months ago so she remembered how much I was wanting this palette and came across it and got it for me!
I now have in my possession this ultra cute palette!
You can’t honestly say this isn’t the cutest thing you ever seen! The palette is ultra tiny and has a little hanging loop on th end which I guess you could use on your cell phone but I’m not so nuts I’ll be using this as a cell phone charm!
This contains three shimmering shades of shadow in silver blue, pink, and cream. It flips open to reveal the three shadows and mirror plus it has a sweet little draw that pulls out to reveal two sponge applicators!
I haven’t yet used the shadows but I have dabbed my finger in and it appears they are quite pigmented! I think most of the appeal of the palette is it’s size and cute design!
Overall, it’s definately a really cute collector’s item and I’m properly chuffed to finally have it!
I wish I could tell you the price but I failed miserably at ever locating this so I don’t know it’s original price tag! This particular one is a gift and I don’t want to be rude and ask how much the person paid for it!
If you happen to live in Asia definately have a look around and see if you can locate one!
I’ll be doing an FOTD shortly with this and I’m eager to try it out for size! I’m also slightly hesitant to use it as it’s too cute to spoil by dipping my brushes into it! Sigh!
Tell the Muse what you think!
Good luck finding it as I had the devil of a time locating one!
ZOMG! How much do you love the baby pink slide compact from Laneige? I freaking adore this thing!
I have the standard boring blue slide compact but I so want the baby pink one as it goes so well with my iPod and iPhone!
Ooooo so pretty!
This compact is so geeky chic! I really like the formula of the moisture foundation plus it has SPF which makes me a happy Muse and now even better we got the awesome pink sliding compact!
The Muse needs this!
