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!

The set includes:

  • AQMW Eye Shadow
  • AQMW Lip Gloss
  • AQMW Loose Powder
  • AQMW Puff
  • Makeup Box Tin

This year the coffret had an interesting twist because it didn’t come in a box, it came in a tin. I haven’t tried any of it yet as I’m too busy admiring all the pretty but I’ll review it and hopefully swatch it soon.

Did anyone purchase this?

Or anything from Japanese Collections this Holiday?

Do share!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. 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.

    This set looks so pretty Muse! I just ordered the holiday set (the sensual lip set and the signature velvet art shadow, also in the smoky collection) yesterday from Missha since the lip set is still 30% off plus the $15 discount. Just can’t resist! This set looks similar but I do think makeup from Japan still has a slightly higher quality than from Korea.

      aw glad to hear it moon and great deal! I agree, I love Korean makeup don’t get me wrong but Japanese makeup does seem a little higher end ;D Cosme Decorte is def up there with Chanel ;D imho!


    I have never purchased any asian makeup. I even went to Japan and South Korea, but I was 12 and didn’t even think about makeup then!

    The lipgloss is really cute, I wonder if the butterfly would apply on the lips though!!
    The packaging in general is cute! I can’t wait to see what they look like!

  • Ada

    The packaging look incredible – the eyeshadow looks incredibly pigmented, but the lipgloss looks kind of…um…like they got a clear gloss and sparkled some sparkly confetti into it. Maybe I’m wrong and it’s like Guerlian’s gold flecked primer.

  • Tiffany Martin

    Oh my look at that! It’s so pretty!!! Packaging is amazing, but the products look girly and nice. I didn’t purchase it (out of my price range) but those eyeshadows wow.

  • Kim

    This looks so beautiful. I’ve never tried any Japanese makeup. Well, other than the Chanel item I have that was made in Japan.

    I snapped up a CD coffret last winter after seeing your pics of it on this blog. Last year’s eyeshadow was the most wearable brown/gold and I still revel every time I open the box. I passed the CD counter earlier this year and was surprised that this was the coffret… The colors look like they won’t work on everyone (certainly not on me, as I go for warmer things). I’ll be interested to read your final review of this coffret, especially compared to previous years’!

      emily I completely agreed, these shades are much cooler! but I couldn’t resist hauling it ;-D it was just too pretty not to get it….! ;D

  • bluematilda

    where can I buy Cosme Decorte AQMW Makeup from if I live in the UK?

    • the Muse

      it’s sold in Japan chris you’d have to purchase it online at higher prices. I’m unsure of an online shop but perhaps would have some of the collection just not at retail.
