I've been anticipating all the upcoming Holiday coffrets. However, after swatching Addiction's Romantic Mind set, I'm not sure this one will be making my list of 'must gets.'
I can never understand why beauty departments have such awful lighting?! I guess it's all part of the illusion.
I love the gorgeous, shimmery, deep taupe-bronze nail polish, but I can do without the soft, baby-pink with silver shimmers lip balm. The set also includes a 15ml size Tinted Skin Protector.
And here it is, the crux of my indecisive dilemma...the eye palette. The eyeshadow shades are as follows: a pale, slivery-blue with silver shimmers; a pale, white-base pink; a sooty, charcoal black with silver shimmers; and a neutral, wheat brown. All four shadows have a satin finish, with the silvery-blue and pink shades being slightly drier in consistency. I feel in love with the wheat brown shadow, and, to be frank, I was underwhelmed by the other three eyeshadows.
I don't think one eye shadow and a nail polish (not full size), justifies purchasing the Romantic Mind set, which retails for ¥7,980 ($83.82). What do I do?!
What Holiday collection are you thinking of investing in?
