Coffret D’Or‘s late summer/ early fall collection will be launched in mid-June, but testers are already out in Japan and pre-ordering has started.

My post on this collection has been updated with a link to exciting photos of all the new palettes and their swatches. I am enjoying them at the moment!

There is a good chance that I will pick up one of them. (The blogger praises the superb quality of the powder, and she is usually spot-on.) I just need to decide which one to go for……

I’ve just bought Marc Jacob Round Vanity case from Sephora in NY! OMG, all items in this collection are sooooo cute. I’m considering getting the big vanity case and the brush set (just because of their cuteness although the brush quality is not as great as that of Suqqu). Feel a bit guilty to get all of them :P

Hi Molly,

Great to hear from you in NY! Hope you are well!

Thank you for letting me know that you have bought the round vanity case from Marc Jacobs. For me, that is the cutest item among the gorgeous-looking lineup.

I am wondering if you would let me know the rough diameter of the round case. I am not sure if I will ever get to see it in person, and I would love to have an idea about the size of it, which the Sephora website didn’t seem to indicate.

Thank you in advance for this! :)

I think the big vanity case looks great too. It seems very practical and I hope it is sturdy enough to hold your makeup goodies!

Thank you very much for stopping by my blog again!! :)

The diameter is approx 19 cm. For me, I think it’s quite the right size, not too big, not too small. And you can see from the websites that there are these cute daisy flowers, big and small printed on the inside bottom.

Hope this helps! Actually, I gravitated to purchasing this item partly because of your review :)Thanks for writing about this cute collection.

Hmm… I thought it looked a little bland for me :( I had high hopes for the new CD line. Well maybe when I see it in person I might change my mind :) thanks for the update!

Hi Molly,

Thank you for letting me about the diameter. That really helps!

It is indeed a good size. I can imagine the case must be looking so adorable and can hold up quite a few things.

Thank you so much again, and enjoy Sephora for me! :)

Hi Paris,

You are very welcome!

For me, the existing Coffret D’Or palettes look better in person. So far the new palettes look fairly good, but no particular one stands out for me at the moment. Nonetheless, I think I might pick one and try it myself.

Thank you very much for leaving your comment again! :)
