Coffret D'Or Leaving Singapore

Just heard from the Kanebo SA at Takashimaya that Coffret D'Or will be pulled from the Kanebo counters in Singapore at the end of this year. The summer 2010 collection featuring the Beauty C Curve palettes (S$54) will be the last order. So if you are thinking of getting anything from Coffret D'Or, best to do it soon before it runs out of stock.

The good news is that Lunasol has greatly expanded its number of counters here. An ad in Her World listed the following counters: BHG Bugis, BHG Junction 8, Metro Paragon, Metro Sengkang, OG Albert Complex, OG Orchart Point, OG People's Park and Takashimaya.

OMG, what is happening to Coffret D'or? I think Kanebo has been neglecting this brand ever since it replaced T'estimo. =( This brand doesn't do much promotion, unlike Lunasol. I wonder why.

I am still waiting for the Limited Ed palette to be out to get it. Guess I will have to get it from the internet instead.

So sad to see another brand being pulled out of Singapore. =(

hi,
I think that basically given the limited market size in Singapore, Kanebo has decided to focus their efforts on promoting Lunasol. Coffret D'Or is priced more affordably than Lunasol but Lunasol has more unique products to offer, especially their very attractive eyeshadow palettes. It's a pity to see Coffret D'Or go, but of the two brands, I would rather see Lunasol stay.

That's sad for me too. I just saw this brand recently. I am a 100% otaku so I did not notice this brand as it always always a small counter. Their target audience did not really support them too. Since S$60+ is still a bit high for normal 20 - 30 year old.

I am devastated by this piece of news, because I am such a huge fan of their eye palettes! For the C-curve collection, I bought 4 palettes! I also find their palettes much more affordable, as compared to Shu Uemura, Chanel, Dior, etc... I am really sad to see it go, just like Stila and YSL... Luckily there is still Adambeauty and Gooddealer!

hi,
Stila is still available at the Escentials boutique in Tangs Orchard, but it is a much smaller selection. YSL is also still available at the DFS Galleria in Scotts Road and at Changi Airport dutyfree.

Noooo!!
I love Coffret D'or! Comparing this and Lunasol, I would prefer Coffret D'or. Lunasol is so expensive! I haven't even got a single item from Lunasol. Guess I better stock up =(

To Haru: I disagree with you, I've always preffered coffret's unique colours and combinations. They palettes actually beat out lunasol in 2008 & 2009 on cosme.jp, and I honestly wouldn't mind paying S$70 for them. Unfortunately I normally find lunasol's colours too glittery or generic. But kanebo's been neglecting coffret since 2009, so I'm not too sad about it pulling out.
