The Trance Deep Eyes from Summer 2008 is my favorite eyeshadow line Coffret D'or put out so far. I managed to collect all 5 available color palettes and all look really great on me which is a rare occasion as most Japanese brands tend to release warmer colors so it nearly never happens that all colors of an eyeshadow range work for me.
Anyway, the blue was the only palette I didn't pick up last year even though I liked how it looked online but blues are a tricky thing for me as they can end up hooker-ish quickly hehe.
E.g. Baby blues look horrid on me as they wash me out and make me look like a cheap ho.
Even though eBay has become a place where scoring deals on Japanese makeup is really hard you can sometimes find some fine bargains.
I found the Trance Deep Eyes 02 for only US$22.50 incl. shipping and the Full Memory Rouge (Glow) PK-250 for only about US$15 (incl. shipping) brand new in a buy it now auction. That's about half of the retail price. Pretty sweet, right?
-Trance Deep Eyes 02 Blue:
The Trance Deep Eyes shadows have a nice smooth feel and good pigment. The 2 shades on the left are a bit sheerer and the shade on the bottom left contains lots of finely milled glitter which gives a jewel-dipped finish.
The lasting power is great, I wore the palette today from like 10-6 and there was no sign of creasing or fading.
I like the blues in this palette very much. The palette contains a blue-tinged white, bright light blue with a touch of aqua, a pale violet glitter shade and a deep violet blue (looks strangely more navy on the pics).
I am really pleased with this pretty palette and I hope Coffret D'or will release some pretty Summer collection this year, too!
-Full Memory Rouge PK-250:
In my opinion all Coffret D'or lippies (and also the ones from its predecessor brand T'estimo) are amazing. The "Glow" line is always sheer and shimmery whereas the "Color" range offers more pigmented lipsticks.
I think I have a tendency to prefer the lipsticks from the "Glow" range as I love the sheer nearly wet shine they can give.
The Full Memory ranges comes in a longer slim smooth silver tube. Not that special and I am really happy that they came out with such beautiful packaging in the new Shine Drape Rouges!
The color PK-250 is a pretty light shimmery and sheer pink which is a no-brainer lipstick as I can swipe it on without a mirror or lipliner. The color is very neutral and would work with the majority of eye looks.
All in all a great little lot of Coffret D'or items =D I also got a few other items from the same seller as she had a 25% off sale in her shop (that's why the things came out quite reasonably priced).
She is doing sales from time to time (ginsengseafood on eBay).
