2009 Spring…What happened to the pinks?

Continuing with my review on the Spring 2009  collections from the Japanese brands…the collections that are not pink!

First, we have Laneige Spring 2009 – Art Play collection with pinks and lilac and pale green with peach.

If anyone has read my previous posts  (please see Wishing for a White Christmas and Dreaming of a White Christmas) you would know that  i like snowflakes! Laneige Spring 2009 -“Art Play” Collection has snow flake designs on their compact!! too cute but perhaps a little out of place for Spring/Summer??

Next, I present Sofina Aube Couture Spring 2009…Aube  has really really great eyeshadow palettes…for Spring, there is the introduction of Aube Couture which features eyeshadow palettes that are shaped like your eye so you know where to  place your eyeshadow! The shades available range from blues to neutrals…

And my all time favourite…Kanebo Lunasol Spring 2009 – “Bloom”…this is the visual advert that made my heart stop and go “I want to look like that” (followed by a depressing crap …that’s not ever gonna happen!)

There’ are four gorgeous colour combination of eyeshadow palettes in pink,green, purple, a coral/green and a plum…Kanebo Lunasol makes me want to purchase every shadow palette its available (thank god these are not limited edition! I can slowly starve myself on bread and water to purchase them rather then eating biscuits!) …I have a special place in my heart for the purple…especially after seeing Betsy’s post – Lunasol Layer Bloom Eyes #03 Purple Graduation.

In conclusion (haha…couldn’t resist adding that in! gosh i sound so geeky),  there does not seem to be a pink themed only collection for the Japanese brands…I would say its a mix of pale pastels or a pink and lilac theme…best of all are all introduction of the newly formulated eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks!!! I would say that it would be a great idea to check out these brands if you can get your hands on them!

Has anyone gotten their spring shopping list sorted out yet? Or you already are playing with your new babies?? Please do share!

Happy drooling!!

  1. LOL, I love “in conclusion”! 😀 Love sounding all pro~
    Nice overview~ Lunasol’s ad isn’t the most appealing but their palettes are just to die for.
