I wasn´t entirely sure if I needed the Beauté de Kosé coffret this year but after seeing the look created with it on the BdK website I decided to order it.
I found it for US$59.99 on Facial-Shop which is pretty much the retail price in Japan (5250 Yen, about US$59). However registered airmail is included so it´s a pretty good deal in my opinion (The 2 Eye Fantasist Eye Colors have this exact retail value alone!).
To my surprise the kit arrived just 8 days after I ordered it. This is the normal delivery time for Hong Kong Post during the year but right now I am waiting about 2 1/2 - 3 weeks for my packages to arrive.
The Fantasist Collection Makeup Coffret contains:
-Eye Fantasist Eye Color in SP063 (Dark Cherry), 7g
-Eye Fantasist Eye Color in PK857 (Sugar Glazed Pink), 7g
-Rouge Fantasist Aqua Vinyl RO681 (Sweetness Rose), 3g
-Glossy Body Cream, 30g
-Puff Cheek in PK800, 1g
Everything comes in a pretty black sturdy cardboard box and with a black shopping tote. I like the box much more than the bulky round ones from the last Xmas and Summer Coffrets! The items were wrapped in pink wrapping tissue, too! =)
-Eye Fantasist Eye Colors:
As I probably said about 6796545639 times I am not so much a fan of cream or liquid eye shadows. However the Eye Fantasists are really nice and good quality. They are a smooth cream which blends easily but dries quickly so better do one eye at a time.
I was a bit worried that the Dark Cherry color would be a bit too red to wear but it turned out to be a gorgeous sparkly plum shade.
The Sugar Glazed Pink color is a shimmery light pink with micro-glitters. It complements the Dark Cherry color nicely!
-Rouge Fantasist Aqua Vinyl:
This is a very pretty rosy pink lip gloss with fine shimmer. It has a very glossy and lustrous finish and wears comfortably. The staying power is good for a gloss, it stays about 2-3 hours on me without getting clumpy or sticky.
-Glossy Body Cream:
This is a softly scented body cream with very fine, pearl-like shimmer, no glitter at all. Actually once rubbed it the sheen is hard to detect.
It´s a nice item but I would have preferred a nail color or something (like in the Dark Cherry color! That´d have been really cool!)
This is an interesting item. It´s a tiny powder puff filled with 1g of a soft pink blusher. It comes in a plastic pouch which you should keep the puff in.
The shade of pink is very pretty, it´s a neutral shade that works perfectly with the gloss. However the puff doesn´t distribute the color evenly (you need to pat this on your cheeks rather hard) so you need to blend the blush well. While the blush looks pale on the swatch below (or hardly visible) it showed up very well on me. My grandma asked me if it was so cold outside because I had such flushed cheeks =O lol (Oh and yea, it was about -2 degrees Celsius outside hehe)
All in all this is among my favorite Xmas kits so far along with Lunasol =)
