四色眼影Les 4 O mbres#Mystic Eyes 14（迷情雙眸）4.5g NT1,850 (first 2 pics source: iswii.net)
My pics and comments: Chanel 2009 Spring is going for the 'new Bohemian' look, romantic, laid-back Bohemian style with the Couture influences, earthy toned eyeshadows are meant to match with nude, or sand-red lipsticks, paired with dark ink-purple nails. There was only 1 limited edition eyeshadow quad release in shade #14 Mystic Eyes. Packaging- comes with signature velvet cover for the shiny plastic compact (which unfortunately attracts fingerprint):
Comes with plastic separator in the compact and 2 single-ended sponge tip applicators Suggested application method per the attached pamphlet, though I don't pay too much attention to it given it's more for a Western eye structure.Back of box & ingredients: 紙盒背後還有成份:

It's basically a makeup coffret- contains a 13 products total. I dont know whether these items are all LE or unique products or just from regular lines. It's really just 10 products excluding the applicators (since these normally come with the individual blush or usual eyeshadow palettes). I suppose you are paying for the vanity tray =)
First tray- lipbrush, eyeshadow brush & sponge double end applicable, purple blush puff.
Second tray: Blush x 2 ( orange sunray and angelic pink), eyecolor x3 ( in rock blue, Anna Sui purple and Elf pink)
Third tray: lipcolor x 4 (bronze gold, rose red, doll pink, jewel orange) and 1 lipbalm.
. Apparantly if you pre-order in Anna Sui Taiwan counters, you can optionally get your vanity engraved..lol.source: iswii.net
Featuring influences of India- it appears that the Asian release will be different to Western releases, even the promo pictures are different!
This is the Asian promo...as expected, the bronzed look is not as popular in the Asia market so it will be a bronzed dark eye look with pale skin and just subtly contoured.
For the Western promo and more product links, please see
The French designer Alexis Mabille is behind this little gorgeousness! The Lotus Splendor. The design is a 3-D lotus blossom, when opened, the 3 petals will feature 2 eyecolors, 2 lipcolors and 2 mirrows.
Comes in two colors: #01 will be a more subtle sweet look, #02 will be stronger, darker colors.
I managed to get my hands on #01 as pre-release, will need to wait for it in the mail, cant wait!
NT1850, which is about $62USD, a tad pricy for the small size but given the extravagant design, I suppose that's how much most makeup brands would be charging for this.法國設計師Alexis Mabille設計的「燦蓮彩盤」，外盒是立體蓮花花苞，打開時，三片花瓣是2種眼彩、2色唇彩，以及兩面鏡子。01炫彩珠光主打甜美妝感、02深邃流金則強烈深色系。
The Asian release features the following products:
Lotus Splendor palette, comes in two colors, (one pictured above, approximately USD62) - 金燦蓮彩盤 限定2色 NT$1，850
Poudre Elephant Teint , (I guess this is same as the Western palette- little gold palette with Elephant design) approximately USD48 - 恆河驕陽修容盤 NT$1，450
Kajal by Nature, approximately USD26 深邃大眼眼線筆 限定3色 NT$780
Colors: India Ink, Amber Night, and Smokey Henna.
Vernis Crème de Nacres (nail polish set in Cinnamon Plum and Saffron Rose) 泰姬瑪哈美甲組 NT$800

Color Fever Dewy Shine lipsticks (in 2 LE colors) 玫瑰晨露光唇膏 限定2色 NT$880
丰靡美姬 2008秋冬新粧 (Estimated release date 16th August 2008)
(Apologies for certain product not having English names and color codes, since I sourced most info from Chinese websites and these were not provided).
After Gemma Ward's successful spokeperson role for the past year with the strong theme of 'mature but cute' with great market response, Esprique Precious has replaced her with the new model this year.
The new look features the 'glamourous Cinderella', twisting the old stereotypical princess looks which usually featurs pinks, purples and golds (hello? isn't that Esprique Spring and Summer?).
The 2008 Autumn features grey-toned blue eye looks with rose lips to portray the Cinderella princess with both personality and gracefullness.
Here are some pictures
I thought it looks like a sudden overly mature transition in huge contrast with the Gemma Ward fresh sort of cute looks from Spring and Summer 2008.
The lipstick (featuring high gloss and moisturising properties, fragrance free):
10 new colors, NT$900 (about $30USD)丰靡美姬 華麗幻粧水潤唇膏
*豐沛的水潤感，如同唇蜜般的光澤，與唇部服貼度極高，濃密又滑順的觸感。*添加特殊新原料「多彩光潤油劑」，能提高潤澤感、光澤感與密著性與持粧度。*在滑順密著油（Smoothing Fit Oil）的作用下，雖是唇膏卻具有液態般滑順的觸感。*「動感偵測粧膜」技術，能經過長時間也能維持剛完粧時的顯色、光澤及豐潤感。 創造飽滿具光澤的唇粧，顯色澄淨且具高度透明感。*服貼度高，能長時間維持剛上粧時的粧感與潤澤。*全新珠光白與鑽石般的外型設計，搭配唇膏頂端光感鑽石切面，讓唇膏也如同配件般，呈現秋冬的華麗感。*無香料。
4 colors, NT1050 (which is about 35USD)
The blue color featured below.
Featuring the new pearl-creme base texture, which is meant to be high luminosity, I'm thinking whether they actually mean it's a cream-to-powder texture. That will be interesting!
*新開發「珠光霜狀基質」，可如同眼彩釉般作為眼粧打底使用；也可在眼粧最後，如眼影凍打亮眉骨般，加強眼粧光澤度。*具高度透明感的澄澈顯色，與帶有細緻光澤的三重漸層色彩，能創造具立體感的動人眼粧。*耐汗水、耐皮脂，即使長時間也不易暈染暗沉，能維持剛上粧時的美麗粧感。*全新珠光白與鑽石般的外型設計，讓眼影盤也如同配件般，呈現秋冬的華麗感。*無香料。 Eye color singles (these are not new products, but new color releases).

共13色 建議售價各NT.290元〈另售: 丰靡美姬 眼彩餅盒 建議售價NT.290元(可放2個嬉色眼彩餅)〉
Duo eyeliners (5 colors, NT$600, approximately USD20)
These really remind me of the new Sofina Aube duo liners, which I bought several of. I quite like duo eyeliners since they are easily portable and fool-proof combinations, great for a uniform eyelook.
Essie 在台灣好像比較少看到, 在國外它跟OPI 差不多是屬於沙龍常看到的牌子, 色系沒OPI那麼鮮艷, 淺色系蠻多的, 要不就是鮮紅豔橘亮粉紅, 偶爾有些深色系的, (OPI 可能有些特殊一點的顏色). 在國外的價錢跟OPI差不多, 可能便宜一點點.
這色是'Tennis Corset', 透亮象牙白帶著均勻的金色碎亮粉(沒到亮片那麼大), 比較透一點的安全色, 不過最大的問題是他的金色亮粉會有時讓指甲看起來有點黃~ 皮膚偏黃的要注意些.
我的指甲上擦三層, 外加Seche Vite的快乾top coat.
It comes with a pretty coral pink satin pouch, unboxed, and the compact is shiny silver like other Chantecaille items but a lot thicker and bigger.Opening up the compact...
Close up picture of the compact... a bit flashed out but it's beautiful isn't it...I'm really quite impressed by the more and more intricate surface designs on cosmetic products...first it was the less fancy things like 5 striped compact (Bobbi brown shimmerbricks)...then eventually it's something as beautiful as this! As with lots of beautifully designed compacts like these, the top layer has a shimmer spray that wears off, but it also means the product itself is a bit more wearable as a normal blush and not as shimmery throughout. It's a champagne pinked coral blush, with color gradation. Very finely milled.
The bottom compartment is an aerated section for putting puff or brush. Mine came with nothing, not sure whether there was meant to be a free puff or anything contained inside, for $90USD I thought there would be!
