Thanks for posting this PJ!! I was looking forward to this but so far nothing calls at me. Do you know if the lipsticks are Crystal Shine or just regular Rouge Unlimited?

Hi Chica,

I do like the eye palettes, particularly Adorned Marguerite. Both the case and the colors are gorgeous. I hope you will receive some great items for Christmas!

Thank you for commenting again. :)

Hi Tammy,

You are very welcome. Hope you will be able to decide what you would like to get (I know how difficult it can be). Let us know your thoughts on whatever you decide to have.

Thank you for stopping by again! :)

Hi Ti_Amo,

You are very welcome. I am not really sure if the lipsticks are the Crystal Shine ones. But since the (US) website doesn’t specify this, I would probably assume these are the regular ones.

Thank you for your question. :)

The brush set is nice, but then i have too many brushes :P

all the colours i have swatched and they are very pigmented and smooth~ Marguerite is a little off for me, don’t wear bright colours as much as the other two palettes.

Love rose and sakura! But i think sakura’s colour are better, hence i bought that first, getting the rose next! :D

Hi Plue,

I think all the three palettes look quite gorgeous. I think I am drawn to Marguerite the most. Some of the colors are indeed quite bright, but it has a nice lilac and I love the look of the case.

I will probably get to see them in person very soon. I am looking forward to that!

Thank you for your comment again! :)
