Summer 2009: Lavshuca Lip Gloss & GIVEAWAY!

Lavshuca revamped all their products/packaging so since the brand debuted in Spring 2006 they went from cute pink/white-girliness to dark purple not-so-innocent princess. I personally like the new kind of packaging better as it looks more elegant and princessy but I know many are sad that the brand underwent quite a change.

Anyways, their Summer 2009 collection is disappointing as it consists only of their new squeeze-tube Lipgloss coming in 8 colors. Cute lipglosses but nothing else. I wanted more cute eyeshadow palettes like last year's fantastic ones!

Being disappointed didn't keep me back from ordering 5 of the new lipglosses (it helps that they're really cheap!) lol (man, you know I am a freaky addict!)

Actually I detest lip products in squeeze-tubes (except lipbalms). I don't actually know why as squeeze-tubes are a good rather hygienic medium but I am weird so.... =X

Anyways, I LOVE the new Lavshuca Lipgloss. The texture is sticky and tacky and rather thick (so nothing for you if you mind this sort of gloss) and they leave a very glossy and shimmery finish with great staying-power (for a lipgloss)!
These are unscented, too, which is always a plus in my opinion.
You apply this straight from the tube by squeezing the gloss out on the slanted hard plastic applicator.

Being greedy for Japanese makeup I purchased 5 colors. But since I am trying to be a nice person only 4 are for me and 1 is for a lucky reader!

The colors I got are (left to right on the pic):
PK-1 (light nude pink, sheer pigment), PK-2 (juicy neutral pink, sheer-medium pigment), RS-1 (deeper raspberry pink with decent pigment), RD-1 (juicy can win this one!) and BE-2 (pinky nude with decent pigment/no shimmer. Fab color!)

I got mine from Ichibankao. I think they retail for somewhere below US$7 =D

Giveaway: I am giving away the Lipgloss in RD-2 (2nd from right no the pics above...brand new and unused, just took it out of the box to take pics). You have to be a follower (being a subrsciber only doesn't count!) to participate and just leave a comment below (no need for a specific content) including your name/nickname (I have to be able to distinguish you from others).

Givaway ends on May 18th at 6 PM (my time, that's GMT +1).
I will announce the winner in a new post. Please email me within 48 hours to claim your prize or 2nd chance winner will be selected.
Good Luck!

The colors are so lovely! Too bad they are not releasing any new eyeshadow for summer collection. I would LOVE to have one as Lavshuca is not available in my country =( I've been reading your blog since last year but this is my first time dropping comment here! Just become your follower :)

I don't like tube glosses too because of the applicator. You can just use a lip brush for better application. :)

I've been dying to try Lavshuca but it's so hard to come by in my country. The glosses look really good but I was also expecting a larger collection with other point make up items. :)
