Addiction Pastel Rainbow

Addiction (by Kose) will release its spring 2010 collection, Pastel Rainbow on 25 February in Japan. Helmed by former NARS International Makeup Director Ayako, the collection features a daring combination of lime and royal purple, including what looks almost certainly like a Prince-inspired purple lipgloss called Purple Rain. It's nice to see a Japanese brand going the more adventurous and creative route, rather than the OL-oriented (OL is Japanese lingo for "office ladies") mass appeal route of safe browns, neutrals and pinks.

There will also be two limited edition makeup sets.

1. Campaign Addiction (7980yen): Limoncello eyeshadow, Poupee lipstick, Acid Pink Blush, Misty On face mist (mini size, 10ml), lipgloss (mini size) and a pouch.

2. Select Addiction (7665yen): Choice of any eyeshadow + lipgloss + blush, Misty On (mini size), lipgloss (mini size) and a pouch.

I haven't used any Addiction products before so I can't say how good they are but Kathi over at Lotus Palace has reviewed several Addiction products. Do check out her reviews!

hey Ti_Amo,
I'm contemplating getting the Campaign Addiction set myself! Don't know how I'm going to wear the lime green shade but it's still tempting me somehow :-)

Addiction is so addictive. The whole collection is tempting. More so than Nars.
