Small Kose haul (Esprique Precious & Beaute de Kose)

I know that I've been neglecting the Japanese makeup a bit in favor of buying more Korean stuff =) I think I am so stocked with Japanese makeup that I got really more selective what I buy so there was nothing that caught my fancy within the previous month or so.

Anyway, I have been waiting for adambeauty to update his Esprique Precious range so when I spotted the fall collection finally for sale I decided to pick up 2 of the lipsticks and an eye palette. I found the Esprique eyeshadow quad and the Beaute de Kose quad I had been lemming since August for good prices on facial-shop though so I decided to pick them up there.
Adam sent me a T'estimo lipgloss sample along with my 2 lipsticks, too =)

I will review the items within the next few days =)

Hi Jeanjean,
I don't post pics of myself, sorry! I prefer to stay anonymous (or faceless hehe) on the net =)
I'll be reviewing Tony Moly skincare soon!

Hi Glow_Chaser,
they are very pretty, aren't they? I believe that the Japanese brands make the prettiest and best lippies =D

The Esprique shadows retail for about US$35 on adambeauty, the lipsticks cost US$27.50 (all incl. shipping).
The Beaute de Kose quad was from facial-shop for US$44.50 incl. shipping but she had only 1 piece and I am not sure if it's still available (I believe it was LE).
The Esprique shadow quad seems to be very pigmented except for the cream shade. I don't know why they had to throw in a sheer cream shadow. I haven't tried the lippies yet but knowing Japanese brand these probably give a sheer glossy finish.
I always recommend getting something from Cathy Cat (like their Glitz Quilt Shadows) or Banila Co...they make nice gifts. Also the Skinfood Bordeaux Shining Kit makes a nice gift (I reviewed it, check my labels)
