I have been incredibly time-strapped lately… work has been keeping me up late at night, and I cannot seem to find the time to blog. Increasingly, I am tempted to move more of my sharing and reviews to Instagram. Since many of you are also spending more time on Instagram, please let me know what you think in the comments below!
Regardless, there are always some collections (especially makeup) that I think deserve their place in history, for which I will always try to make it a point to share them in greater depth here. I love sharing beautiful pieces with you, and showing & describing swatches with you and make up looks. Especially when they are as lovely as the new Cosme Decorte AQMW point makeup this season!
Japanese makeup are usually understated and feminine, but Cosme Decorte truly excelled this season with an extensive line-up featuring new seasonal colours as well as revamps on some of their existing staples. My favourite seasonal colours from Cosme Decorte come in these gorgeous round pots…
There are 30 new shades of Cosme Decorte Eye Glow Gem this season, and I have 4 of them here. Just released last summer, these eyeshadow monos feature a bouncy gel-like texture that is a dream to smooth and blend on the eyes. For a full review on the formula, please head over here.
From left to right, the shades are:
To put the finishing touches on the eye look, there are new eyeliners, mascara and even brow pencils.
And putting all these to work in a single eye look…
I first lined my lash line generously with the Cosme Decorte Lasting Gel Eyeliner in BR301, blending out with the sponge-tipped end. Next I applied Eye Glow Gem in BE392 all over my lid as a base, then I layered BR384 over it. Added PU180 to the outer corner, blending upwards as a fun smoky touch; and finished with WT083 on the inner corner. Finished with 2 coats of Luxscara Lengthening Mascara in BK001, and defined my brows using Pencil Eyebrow in GY002.
For the lips, there are 20 shades of Cosme Decorte The Rouge. This is a melting cream formula that feels almost balm like, but packs a good dose of colour to be fully opaque with just a single swipe. I like the luscious gloss finish, and it keeps my lips feeling really soft and hydrated. The shade that I have here is PK853 which is a light pink that has sufficient red pigments at its base, and does not turn my lips grey. An easy-to-wear, and feminine everyday colour!
And here is the full makeup look! The kind folks at Kose Cosme Decorte sent me an extra set of Luxcara Lengthening Mascara in shade BK 001 and Pencil Eyebrow in GY002, so I thought I’d share them with one of you! Head over to my Instagram Stories for the details now!
ps: Don’t forget to leave me a comment below if you’d like to continue seeing more blog posts in future, or the type of content that you’d like to see here. Otherwise I really might switch over to Instagram entirely for good!
