Coffret D'Or Mixing Eyes -Blue Green

I had seen this Coffret D'or Palette highlighted in a few Japanese magazines for the past few months and I was highly anticipating it's release. I was weary since I was afraid that the colors would be too sheer or similar to other colors that I have but I caved and ordered this palette right away.


Outside of the compact is mirror-like and annoyingly shows smudgey finger prints quite easily. There is a cute cross pattern of pink crystals.


Inside the palette (no flash and with flash).
Colors are a lime green, light blue, white and a navy shade for lining.


Swatches (no flash and with flash)

When I did a hand swatch, the colors didn't look super pigmented but when I wore them for the first time with some UDPP, the colors showed quite well. Light blues tend to turn green on me and but the one in this palette did stay true with some layering. I also really liked the navy liner-it was dark enough to give a good line without too much effort. The shadows lasted all day and stayed pretty vibrant. Although late into the night, one eye did have some creasing while the other was fine. Go figure. Sorry no eotd, when I took a pic the colors looked more washed out than they really were in real life. Will have to give it a shot in natural lighting and hope I have better results.

I'm pleased I purchased this palette and now I'm eyeing the lavender purple version. There is also a brown shade, silver pink, beige black versions available.
