My New Things: Coffret D'or 3D Lighting & Shiseido Integrate Accent Eyes + Swatches

This is my tiny belated birthday haul: Coffret D'or 3D Lighting Eyes in 04, and Integrate Accent Eyes in BR750. I purchased these from a seller on Ebay. You can email me if you want to know her username. :)

I think 3D Lighting is Coffret's first collection - it came out in Spring 2008, I believe. Accent Eyes is also an older Integrate line. Makeup collections always come out faster than I make decisions, so I probably won't be getting anything from the 2010 collections until 2012. LOL! I'm a slooowwwww consumer! It takes me forever to decide what I want, and only after seeing a billion swatches...

The main reason I decided to get Integrate over Kate is because of the packaging. I know! I'm a superficial person!!  >___<  I already used this palette, and here's a quick rave: it is LOOOOVVVEE ~ ~ *dance dance* ~ ~ Very smooth, pigmented... the blending is like a dream! It's easier to use than my Esprique Precious palettes!

Of course, the packaging is a double-edged sword, because you can see every little imperfection, even lint sticks to it like crazy! But I took this photo to show you the back of the palette - it's black with really pretty red sparkles!! Just another cute, packaging surprise! :)

I had to take these photos on my carpet, otherwise the camera wouldn't produce accurate colors.

Swatches!! This one is under direct sunlight. The brown is a little cooler in real life.

Under indirect natural lighting, in my bathroom. The brown is accurate here.

Ahhh, Coffret D'or! I've seen the packaging so many times on other people's blogs, so it's no longer much of a surprise. But it is a nice sized palette - really shiny and pretty, and feels hefty and well-made.  :) I haven't used this one yet (today, maybe!), so I'll let you know the outcome later.

The back is just a reflective black color.

The shadows... I got this palette just for the purple-pink color... it's GORGEOUS.

Shadows under natural lighting, no flash.

Shadows under natural lighting, with flash! Wee! Look at that middle blue color sparkle!!

Sorry, these swatches aren't very good; this one is under direct sunlight. In real life they are SO pretty!!!!!!! The shimmer is incredibly vibrant - just like the ocean on a sunny day! Much more exotic than the Integrate shadows.

Here's one under natural lighting, in the bathroom. :)

Someone requested that I do swatches for my Paul & Joe duos. This is in artificial lighting. Top: Facecolor 058. Bottom: Facecolor 060.

Natural lighting. The brown is more of a reddish brown when applied - it goes nicely with the pink shimmer. The purple has beautiful pink shimmers that I did not manage to capture in the swatch below.

Thanks for reading! EOTD/reviews are forthcoming. Have a nice week everyone. :)

    Thanks for the swatches! I find KATE shadows more suitable for dramatic looks. :) Now I am lemming for some Integrate shadows! :D xoxo

    Miss Wiggle,
    Ahhh I worked for a friend's restaurant for a month before too and vowed never to serve again but then...somehow, my parents opened one up and then it all came falling down :(
    Since then, I've never tipped bad again--unless they really deserve it of course.
