Hello mid-November! The more each day passes by, the more it’s time to sparkle. The year-end season is always my favourite time of the year because things start mellowing and everything just becomes more relaxed. This is how the entire year should be like!
I got my hands on this collection a day after my company’s disco themed dinner and dance (what a waste, I know) and immediately fell in love. It’s seriously got everything you need in it to sparkle and yet it’s not over the top. Before I dive into the review and let you in on how best to use this, might I just add this little message: Get it while you can!
The Laneige Sparkling Party 2014 Holiday Collection is a cute little box of 2 Water Drop lip tints, 2 glitter nail lacquers and a glitter eyeshadow duo.
Some details of the product shades in this collection, and how I can best describe them:
Water Drop Lip Tints:
- Neon Pink
- Raspberry Pink
- Golden Bubble – gold shimmer with hot pink glitter bits
- Pink Wine – colourless with glitter bits in blue, green, gold and rose gold
- Pink Dust – pink shimmer
- Gold Dust – gold flakes
My favourite of the lot has got to be the eyeshadow duo. Pink Dust is a faintly shimmery pink that works great on the lids as a base. Following that up with Gold Dust in the middle part of the eyelids really amps up the wow factor and instantly brightens up your eyes! I love how Gold Dust is actually huge gold flakes that stick onto the skin when you press it on with your fingers, so the sparkle is absolutely gorgeous. And the fall out is minimal.
If you prefer – and this is what I do – you can even use the eyeshadow duo to create a smokey look by matching it with any of the darker eyeshadows that you already own. If you’ll like a tutorial on that, do let me know in the comments section below!
The limited edition Laneige Sparkling Party 2014 Holiday Collection can be found at all Laneige counters at S$45 each. It makes for a great holiday gift, whether for yourself or someone else, and at this price, you do get your money’s worth.
