My review is a little late of the Missha Pig Dream Lucky Kit Type 2 but the eyeshadow and blush in the kit have become one of my favorite items to use when I’m doing a bolder or a nude lip look. Since Fall is here I want to start doing more brown lipstick shades and more nude looks too. The eyeshadow in this kit is my favorite for creating a really soft look on my eyes which doesn’t take away from the boldness of my lips!
There are actually two different versions of the Missha Pig Dream Lucky Kit. I purchased Type 2 when it released for Chinese New Year and second was gift to me by a friend for the New Year.
Each of the contents of the set comes in a cute little plastic pink pig which doubles up as a bank when the makeup and other goodies are removed. I gifted one of the pigs away to a friend who collects pig themed things and kept the other big for myself because it’s so cute. He now resides on my desk and makes me smile anytime I see him!
Inside the little pig you’ll find a little dual compact that contains a split duo eyeshadow and a blush housed on the bottom. You’ll also get Tang Tang Body Cream and a Tang Tang Hand Cream. Sadly, I didn’t love the body cream nor the hand lotion! I ended up gifting them to my sister. They smell like toilet paper to me which is a pretty common scent in Japanese and Korean hand lotions and body creams. Smelling like Charmin Toilet Paper just isn’t on my agenda ha…!
Sadly, since I’m not using either that makes the set a little expensive as I paid $28 for it. That’s not a bad deal but when you’re only using the color cosmetics and nothing else that’s a bit expensive. That being said if you like the hand cream and body lotion it’s an excellent deal. If not, you can purchase the color portion of the set for $17.99 which again, seems a bit expensive to me. I do like the eyeshadow and the blush but I would expect cheaper from a Korean brand.
Type 2’s eyeshadow and blush duo are called Brown Rosy. The blush is a deep rosy plum that’s matte in finish. It’s a very firm blush but it blends quite easily on my cheeks. A little goes a very long way as it is quite pigmented. Unlike the blush the eyeshadows are sheerer and I’m alright with that as they are nice for a quickie natural look and compliment a nude lip look nicely or most important a bolder Fall lip (I featured both types of lips looks in this post). The shadow contains matte side and a shimmer side both of which are the same nude tan brown with a peachy undertone. These are a bit dry, firm, a tiny powdery but they apply and blend easily on my lids without issue. The idea is to use the matte shades all over the lid and accent your lower lash line with this shimmery shade. I use the matte as a base because it is really sheer and I accent by placing the shimmer shade on top. It creates a really basic eye look but again, I’m ok with that as it lets my bolder lip shine through. It’s also a nice shade to use when you just want to do a one and done look!
Even though in the end this worked out a little expensive I still really like the color options in this little kit and would recommend them to anyone that likes simple looks! Like I said, you don’t have to buy the entire Missha Pig Dream Lucky Kit Type 2! Just snatch up the palette duo instead!
Where to buy
Missha Pig Dream Lucky Kit Type 2 is a limited edition set that released for Chinese New Year a few months ago. It includes a hand cream, body cream, and a dual-lid compact that has a split duo eyeshadow and a blush. I didn’t like the hand cream nor the body cream which made this a rather expensive purchase at $28 as they have a rather cloying scent that reminds me of Charmin Toilet Paper. Yack! But I did love the color compact! The blush is firm and matte in finish but blends quite nicely and it’s very pigmented. The eyeshadow duo is matte and shimmer in finish. The texture is powdery but applies beautifully on my lids although it is a bit sheerer. I enjoyed the colors as they created a nice natural look on my eyes!
- Pretty, natural shades that brighten up eyes.
- Cute packaging.
- Hand and body creams won’t appeal to many users due to the cloying fragrance.
Missha Pig Dream Lucky Kit Type 2 might be an appealing pick for those that like natural looks!
