I don´t know how this deliciously pretty taupe nude palette from Kosé Visée slipped through my taupe radar but I finally purchased it online back in August and it was happily waiting here for me when I returned from my trip.
The Glam Nude Eyes series was released back in Spring 2010 along with a nude-themed collection... somehow I didn´t notice that the palette in N-5 was a cool taupe combo!
Anyway, the palette case looks like the previous ones so it doesn´t look that nice (now there are the cute new ones called Blossom Eyes)...just boring clear and black plastic.
There are 5 shades in the palette, the one at the top right is a cream base shade whereas the other 4 shades are powders.
The cream base is free of glitters but a pretty silky sheen. It feels very smooth and soft and spreads nicely. It makes a good base and keeps the shadows looking fresh.
The powder shades are smooth and medium pigmented. The colors have a gorgeous pearly metallic finish whereas the highlighter has some fine glitter bits spread throughout and is very sheer.
The colors last quite well with just a little bit of creasing after many hours of wear.
The colors in N-5 Smoky Beige are:
Deep taupe-gray, medium taupe, light golden beige and shimmery off-white.
Retails for around 1800 Yen in Japan, you can get this from about any of the online shops like Adambeauty, Mihokoshop etc.
Overall highly recommended, a nice basic taupe eye palette!
