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!
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!
I want to bury my head in the Egyptian sands after watching this video!
I really love KT Tunstall. She’s honestly a very talented singer but damn she totally murdered this song!
I’m just somewhat happy they got the whistling part right at least……! I’m gonna go wash m ears out with soap now.
Remember kids there is a valuable lesson to be learned here: Never sing “Walk Like an Egyptian” acoustic!
Am I too brutal? I dunno…maybe….but damn if it didn’t sound bad to my ears!
The Muse’s two cents:
Bangles with an S. As in plural. As in a group of chicks singing a song. Why KT Tunstall thought she could pull off all the lyrics on her own with two other girls doing the “o e o” solo is beyond me!
