It’s 5 days to Christmas!!! Have you gotten all your gifts done yet? Unlikely as it may seem, I am here to tempt you with more makeup goodies… this time from Kose!
You’ve already seen the beautiful coffrets offered by Cosme Decorte [here], which is the prestige brand in the Kose family. If you are shopping for yourself, or planning a party look, you may instead want to explore the full range of eyeshadows that Kose Esprique has to offer this season. There are 8 shades of Glow Eye Veil and 5 shades of Select Eye Color to play with.
Kose Esprique Glow Eye Veil is a brand new shimmery liquid eyeshadow formula that contains lucent pearl for a glossy finish. The applicator is a thin pointed sponge-tip that does a surprisingly good job of applying and blending the shades out. You can actually get a nice finish using just the applicator, but I still like to use my ring finger to blend out the edges. The result is an imperceptible, lustrous eye look that is really pretty and easy to wear on a daily basis.
Kose Esprique Select Eye Color is a shimmery powder eyeshadow single that comes encased in a jewel-like transparent case… super pretty! These 5 new shades will join the existing line-up permanently. I found the texture to be wonderfully soft, almost creamy, and so smooth it blends out like a dream. All the shades are easy to wear, and last all day without creasing. I also like applying the Select Eye Color on top of the Glow Eye Veil, to give a more complex shimmery and intense look with just 2 easy sweeps.
Kose Infinity Royal Flower Collection VII is a luxurious compact powder consisting of 5 different shades to correct for dullness and uneven skin tone. It is a finishing powder to help set makeup, and bring a glow to the complexion. There is even SPF25 PA++ to provide some added sun protecton. The enclosed puff is woven with threads that contain hyaluronic acid and collagen to help blur the appearance of fine lines and pores.
For the skincare junkies, Kose Infinity Coffret Prestigious is attractively priced at SGD250 for SGD420 of value. It consists of a full-sized lotion and serum, and deluxe-sized cream and foaming cleansers, as well as small eye and facial cream samples. This is a great way to explore the range without making too huge a dent on your pocket.
Everything is out at Kose counters already, so do remember to stop by and check them out!
