Cosme Decorte AQMW Makeup Coffret for Holiday 2012

I got my Cosme Decorte AQMW Makeup Coffret from Japan yesterday! This is a Holiday 2012 gift set that features an eyeshadow quad, lipgloss, and powder. I’ve been collecting these for a few years now as they are a more affordable way to indulge in the line considering how costly it is per product.

The set is 7875 yen and was released in Japan at the beginning of November. I typically ask a friend to get it for me but this year I got it from Gooddealer who had it for a reasonable $92.

Let’s take a look!

I quickly dialed up a friend in Korea to grab it for me but haven’t had a chance to yet review it. But I did want to share some of the promo images that Etude House posted on their blog.
