Images of Spring in Japan

My very awesome mate and reader, Betsy, has gotten her Japanese Spring haul in! Lucky duck! I'm still eagerly sitting by my mail box awaiting my Spring goodies!

Betsy was kind enough to e-mail me last night and give me a low down on her goodies plus pictures!

You have Betsy to thank for these gorgeous pics!

Have a lookee:

You might remember me blogging about Beaute de Kose's Cyber Shining Eyes Palettes that were released this Spring (You can click here for details on the release).

Betsy ended up getting the 002 variation of the palette and I'm drooling! The palette is absolutely gorgeous! She says that the palette reminded her of YSL's White Gold Palette and I must say I agree!

The colors look very metallic and quite sparkly! I love any LE's that Beaute de Kose does as the always end up something special and this palette is most definately yummie!

Betsy picked up two of the new Jill Stuart Seductive Eye Palettes as well. I've dodged the Seductive Eye palettes bullet for a while now convincing myself the colors would be matte and boring but after seeing these images I'd say I'm back on board and the lemming force is strong! I guess they aren't so matte after all! Looks like lots of chunky glitter, shimmer, and sparkle! Betsy says indeed they are full of beautiful sparkle and the only color that's a bit matte would be the 2nd shadow which can be used as a base for the other shadows in the palette! As you can see from the pictures below the palettes are astoundingly drool worthy!

Finally we have one of the new Lunasol Palettes and as always it's gorgeous! I'm impressed with the newest palettes this year as they have many good, solid color combos that mix well together and I want at least two!

Overall, Spring in Japan is turning out very nicely!

Thanks for the pics and impressions Betsy!
