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!

Beaute de Kose Star Twinkle Collection

Star Twinkle Powder

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!


About the Muse

Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hello, a-mused,

    The eye fantasist is really awesome! Probably the best cream shadow I have ever had.

    I have it in pink, purple and white. I personally think Beaute de Kose does a good job on creating these beaituful eye colors. For me, they look just enough shimmery, but not so overly glittery. These light-color cream shadows also help pop up the darker shades.

    I love it!

    um good question anonymous! I can’t recall! The original line up costs 2650 yen so these were LE and I’d say maybe 3000 yen or so!

    I can’t remember what I paid just a rough estimate!

    hope this helps lovie!

      hi suz I got these from Japan directly. Sadly they were LE so you won’t be able to pick them up anymore, the review you’re reading is pretty old 🙂 Beaute de Kose does make a similar eye cream though but again only in Japan but you can buy online at various shops but prices are WAY higher than the Japanese retail price. If you’d like a list of online shops just look up my Japanese buying guide which gives some good hints for Japanese Cosmetic Shopping!
