Lunasol Christmas '07 Coffret


Lunasol's ever-popular Christmas coffret series continues this year with a new limited edition Lighting For Eyes palette, a silvery pink Geminate Liner, a shimmery pink lipgloss and a shimmery face powder in an original box. This looks like a bit of a disappointment since the Lighting For Eyes series have never been as popular as the newer Skin Modelling Eyes or Geminate Eyes palettes. The shades in the quad are once again neutral browns and beiges that will appeal to a larger audience with more conservative tastes. The box makes it a convenient gift but a cute little pouch would have been much more useful. Most of the comments on 2Channel so far have not been positive as most people had been expecting a new Skin Modelling Eyes or Geminate Eyes palette. The new quad also looks very similar to last year's Christmas quad. The new Geminate Liner is supposed to be quite different from Geminate Liner Diamond. The Christmas version is more translucent with less color payoff but it has intense holographic shine. Kanebo counters will start taking reservations for the coffret on 1 October in Japan.

The coffret looks alright but I agree.... a pity that the e/s quad is neutral blah-ness as most of the time =( How much will it retail for?
Thanks!

Forgot to state the price! It's 6825yen which is quite alright considering that the palettes are usually 5250yen each.

Yes, I agree this year's xmas set looks a bit too ordinary to me. I have last year and the previous year's Lunasol sets. They sure look much prettiter, exspecially the pouch.

Anyway, will most likely still drop it into my wish list ;P
