Lavshuca Anqitue Collection Antique Monochrome Review, Swatches, & FOTD

Last week I brought you a review of the Lavshuca Holiday Makeup Collection in Antique Sepia. As mentioned in my prior review Lavshuca released two separate coffrets for the holidays. Today I'll be reviewing the second color option available for the collection entitled Antique Monochrome.







If you read my prior review you already know the little details about the collection, the price, the packaging, etc....so I'll just dive into the review today without repeating much of what has already been said about the Lavchuda 2008 Holiday Collection. I wasn't particularly thrilled with Antique Sepia but it's probably my favorite of the two as Antique Monochrome doesn't have a whole lot going for it aside from the nice shade of gloss.







The shadow included with this set is a duo that includes an icy, creamy white shade with a pink iridescent finish and a contrasting gray black shade. I used the lighter shade as a base and highbrow highlighter prior to applying the grayish black shade on my lid and blending a bit into my crease. The pigmentation on the shades is as nice as Antique Sepia and the completed look is a bit of a smoky eye with a hint of girlish innocence due to the creamy pink base. Honestly, in my humble opinion, the look is a tad bit on the boring side but for a quick makeup look I do like it!















The Lavshuca Liquid Rouge Gloss in this set is a bright pink with silver sparkles. I mentioned in my other review how much I loved the gloss and in this set I feel the same way. The gloss is the best part of the set for me! It has a nice shimmer and sparkle and looks rather fab over a dab of lip stain!

















Overall, I wasn't particularly thrilled with Antique Monochrome or Antique Sepia but I am glad I purchased both for my Lavshuca Collection. I'm unsure if you really need to indulge unless you're a collector. The Lavshuca Spring Collection does hold a bit of promise for me so I'll look towards brighter horizons on the Lavshuca front!

How about you?

Loved these?

Which was your favorite set?

Planning on purchasing them?

none of the products look pigmented enough for my skin tone but they certianly showed up on you. i can see why you aren't thrilled about these. i am all for more pigmented makeup.

but you look good, nonetheless!

I really like the white with pink iridescent. I have a color like that from AL, called Angel Wing. Does the grey have a pink sheen to it as well?

You may not like it so much, but I think you look pretty.

The packaging is great, very memorable and unique, but I wonder if it's just too much shimmer.

aw thanks dd! Yes the gray does have a certain pink tinge to it...maybe a bit of pink shimmer? It goes quite well with the creamy pink shade ;)
