Beaute de Kose Spring 2009

The Beaute de Kose spring '09 collection is now available at the Kose counters in Singapore! The collection includes two limited edition Eye Fantasist in PK856 Pink Petunia and PU151 Fresh Lilac (S$38 each), two limited edition Rouge Fantasist Aqua Vinyl in PK891 Raspberry Pink and PK892 Baby Blossom (S$35 each) and a new Mascara Fantasist Long Show (S$46). Due to the high yen, the prices in Singapore currently work out to be cheaper than Japan where the Eye Fantasist is 2625yen (S$43).

I tested out the two Eye Fantasist shades and found both to be pretty, sweet shades that are perfect for spring. Pink Petunia is a rosy warm metallic pink with red, gold and silver pearl particles while Fresh Lilac is a light "blue-purple with silver shimmer and a hint of red". To be honest, I could not detect the hint of red in Fresh Lilac but the silver shimmer is lovely. Pink Petunia is not your usual run-of-the-mill baby pink but has a warmth to it which makes it more interesting. I didn't test out the rest of the items.

Currently, if you purchase the new Shirosumi Whitening Serum (S$82), you will receive either a Eye Fantasist or Rouge Fantasist free! The Metro Paragon counter had two Eye Fantasist shades to choose from, namely OR251 and GR751. GR751 is the nicer of the two shades, a metallic pale olive with gorgeous intense shimmer. Shirosumi contains active ingredients such as arbutin (active whitening ingredient), prune enzyme resolvent (to suppress epidermal cells from absorbing melanin) and dipotassium glycyrrhizinate (anti-inflammatory agent).

From 10-31 January, there is also a GWP of a reversible retro nylon tote (in pink or green) and UV umbrella with $120 purchase at all Kose counters. If you spend $200 and above on facial and hair services at Kose Beauty Centres, you can also receive a free Metallic Lustre Eye Shadow palette from the Fall '08 collection worth $72.
