Kosé Visee x Mercury Duo Brilliance Forming Eyes A-6 Blue & A-7 Gray (Limited Edition)

Kosé Visee released 2 Limited Edition Brilliance Forming Eyes palettes in collaboration with a Japanese fashion brand (Mercury Duo).
The palettes come in 2 different cute pink/turquoise compacts in pretty boxes looking a bit like shopping bags. The powders have cute roses and dots engraved, too.

The color themes are blue (palette A-6...though it´s more turquoise/beige) and gray (A-7...which I´d rather describe as silver).
The texture of the Brilliance Forming Eyes is really nice as it´s quite silky and soft with a beautiful shimmery finish and a good level of pigment. The shimmer is on the pearl side, not glittery (except for the cream shade) so I really like the palettes.

Each quad contains a glittery cream shade and 3 soft powders.
I did experience some creasing when wearing the A-6 palette but I wore it for a really long time and did some outdoor sports so I think it would have stayed better during a normal day.

A-6 Blue: Ivory cream shade, golden beige, bright turquoise (turns to a greenish color on my eyes rather than blue) and deep taupe gray. This palette is versatile as you can create a natural day look or add a pop of color.

A-7 Gray: White cream shade, light silver, light-medium silver and deep gray with lots of blue shimmers which turns it into a deep blue-gray on me. The 2 silvers are pretty much alike, I wish one was to be significantly lighter.

I got mine from Ichibankao. I don´t know if any other online shops will stock this item. Retail price is 1680 Yen per quad.

My dearest friend Iris from Rouge Deluxe did 2 great EOTDs with these palettes!

Hey Kathi dear!
Love the two looks you did with these palettes! I like them a lot too except for the cream liner shades. And the polka dotted cases are just too cute!
Your lashes look so pretty as usual :)

Hi Ning,
yes I got it =D Replied to you! =D

Hi sweets,
I totally share your opinion! I wish they´d have replaced the glittery cream with a more useful shade like a normal powder highlighter otherwise I am pretty content with the palettes! =D
The mascara I use is the older version of the Lash enamel Glamour NEO (of which I got 5 backups =P)
I just didn´t find another mascara to compete with this mascara at all.. I think I might give a try to the new volume mascara from Jill stuart as it comes with a comb applicator, too! I also got the new Fasio mascara with a comb applicator but it´s not nearly as good as the MM one!
