Coffret D'or Summer 2008: Trance Deep Eyes in 03, 04 and 05

I wasn't too thrilled with the first batch of eyeshadow quads (3D Lighting Eyes) Kanebo's newest line Coffret D'or released for their debut in Spring 2008.

When I saw their newest summer quads, called Trance Deep Eyes online I was right away attracted to 4 of the 5 palettes and finally ended up ordering 3 as soon as I saw them for sale (and will get 01 Rose Variation soon, too!)

I have to say that Trance Deep Eyes are even a lot prettier in real life than on pics online and they have a great smooth pigmented texture. All colors show up nicely with beautiful intense shimmer, some colors even have a metallic look to them.

Each palette comes with 2 lighter and 2 darker colors. The shade on the bottom left is a bit more glittery compared to the other shades and the liner shade on the bottom right is the least shimmery color in the quad.

The colors I picked are:

Khaki Variation: Cream, light beige, medium green and darker green

-04 Gray Variation: White, silver, medium cool-toned purple and dark silver gray.

-05 Beige Variation: This is a great neutral quad! Cream, peachy beige, medium taupe-beige and darker taupe brown.

The only thing that bugs me a little is the smell of the shadows. They have this typical cheap eyeshadow smell you might know from $1 eyeshadows and which I haven't really noticed a lot in other Japanese eyeshadows. Maybe today I am hyper-sensitive to smells but I just wanted to mention that I noticed this today.

Trance Deep Eyes come in the same smooth silver rhinestone-encrusted cases like 3D Lighting Eyes and cost 3650 Yen for 5.2 grams of product.

Here's the diagram how to apply the shadows from the back of the box:

I swiped only 1 layer of shadow for the swatches and they're a bit more vibrant and pigmented in real life.
