Full size Soft Touch Pencil is 0.1 oz, 3g
Mini Pencil is .07 oz, 2g
L->R: Angle Noir, Tall Tale, Magic Moon, Skorpios, Palladium, and Ballet Russes
The other gorgeous item is the Hanamichi Palette:
It comes in its own pouch with a silk tie
There is a mini kabuki brush included
Size comparison against a full size soft touch pencil
Swatches (indoor light, no flash)- I'll try to have deeper swatches soon, but I was trying to not mar the design just yet.
L->R: Background color, golden flower, black flower and red flower
The first two colors reminded me of the Exotic Dance duo so here's a comparison pic:
Exotic Dance has more shine to it so the colors are a bit brighter than the ones in the Hanamichi palette in which the finish is more flat.
So far, I think both items are lovely gifts (for yourself or others). I think Mie is more fun especially if you like color. The Hanamichi palette has a gorgeous presentation but I'm still trying to figure out how to maximize use of a red shadow, although for now I'll just enjoy the prettiness :)
I saw these on the Selfridges site, and I MUST HAVE THEM BOTH!! Thanks for the review!
I did a red eyeshadow post first thing in October, if you want to check that out. I'm so drooling over this palette, but I'd be so sad to spoil the design!
nice nars swatches
Use the red eyeshadow as an eyeliner in a more subdued geisha fashion. The thing is, it would be like red lipstick, a little fussy and more work but looks awesome when done crisp and clean. You could also change the tone of the red by adding in black so that it won't be as bright or as a compliment. Likewise, if all else fails use it lightly as a blush. Thank you for the swatches!
The nars palette is just gorgeous!
