先看主圖~宋慧喬真是美啊... 光光溫柔的圖就讓我這隻熊燒著熊熊大火.......

Promo pic: Spokesperson is a popular Korean actress, her pics could sell me anything from Laneige... love how radiant she looks here (yes yes I know about photoshop too).

雪影奢華透光亮采盤(THE SNOW SHIMMER BRIGHTER)10g/NT$1,250◎透光亮采盤藉由粉白、粉橘、粉紅、粉紫、粉藍、粉綠等六種純淨色彩與珍珠柔霧光澤相結合所形成的光感,能夠讓肌膚展現出自然淡雅的光光。透光亮采盤著重於重點打亮功效,讓臉蛋看起來立體,同時呈現如雪透光的細緻光澤,亦可當作眼影打底色或與霧面眼影調和呈現出不同色調光澤感!

 My pics and comments:

The packaging appearance leaves a little bit to be desired- the surface is embossed with black velvet snowflake patterns (not sure how that'd sit inside handbags...), however the hot pink text sort of ruined the otherwise romantic packaging and make it look a little bit tacky.

盒子不夠美, 光黑盒加上黑絲絨雪花剪影貼的浮雕就很有質感了,個人是不大喜歡他閃桃紅字體...

However the compact itself is nice, sturdy click-open style compact with mirror, powder sits in its own compartment and can be flipped up to reveal the bottom deck where the usable brush is. (very similar to Givenchy compact pacakgings).

不過做的不錯,有點像Givenchy雙層黑盒,有鏡子,粉體本身的夾層又可掀開,下面那層有附還算不錯的小毛刷.

Rather usable brush, quite soft and not scratchy.

蠻好用的刷,毛夠軟, Laneige 附的刷具都很實用.

The compact powder itself contains 6 pastle shades- powdery white, light apricot, pale pink, soft lilac, baby blue and pastel green. The primary color is the white- however the magical thing is each of the different colored snowflake shade actually goes through all the way to the bottom, not necessary in the same shape as the snowflake but apparently once the snowflake surface wears off, you get something similar to the Guerlain Meteorites compact, an even compact with various shades.

粉白、粉橘、粉紅、粉紫、粉藍、粉綠的六色盤,主色是粉白底,很神奇的是雪花各色有透到底, 用了蠻多之後雪花浮印到時會不見, 據說會變成六色均勻的一盤(像Guerlain嬌蘭的流星彩色蜜粉餅一般~). 比起很多品牌就光噴上一層美美的浮印是強多了.

I've tried to rub harder on each shade to show the different colors in my swatch, blue was surprisingly the most obvious shade, which makes this a little tad cool toned when blended. However, once blended well, avoiding the blue slightly, it becomes a neutral or slightly cool toned highlighter, hard to describe exact color, but I guess you can just say a very soft shimmery ivory white that goes on pretty translucent on the skin. There is no obvious shimmers but it is subtle enough to be used in the office. I think if you are under dimlights this would be pretty just brushed all over the face lightly, for myself I generally just selectively highlight on cheekbones and bridge of nose etc. 

Not sure how this would go for someone with darker skin, I do think it can be blended down into a translucent highlighter powder though, should not leave an obvious white or silvery streak.

Supposedly you can use this as eyeshadow as well, or blend with matte eyeshadows to give different textures and finishes, I can see it working that way as well, probably on the palest skintones though =)

每色還可以單抹當單色的打亮色 (有些雪花太小單抹有單吃力..不過下層一點每色應該一樣大吧..,試單色是這樣 (共有粉白、粉橘、粉紅、粉紫、粉藍、粉綠- 無照順序):

淺藍那色是最顯色的, 所以會讓整盤有點偏冷.

Swatch pic above shows individual color swatches (in no particular order)- but you can see the blue is most obvious. However, on the face there is no detectable blue. Swatch pic below has a white line marked, underneath is the blended color for the whole palette.

混色一起用的是淡淡的月光白光暈感, 不是想像中亮白銀雪花的過白色, 而是很溫柔感的偏白亮光色, 雖然是打亮的不過夠低調, 全臉刷也ok, 並沒有很大的亮片, 是屬於細細而內斂的光澤感. 太小麥肌可能要試試再買吧. 有點小小飛粉, Laneige好像都用類似的粉體就是了. 不會飛到到處都是,只是有時盒子或鏡面會小沾到. 白線下是混色後的試色.

Like most Laneige powders and blush/eyeshadow, while the product is firmly pressed, it actually picks up on the brush quite easily and loosens, some people hate cosmetics with flying powders so I'd just mention it. Not to the point where you have powders flying everywhere when you are using it though. You can see the brush picks up the powder easily.

On the fence about whether I'd repurchase this- I seem to reach for the highlighter deck of the snow magic box-blusher & brighter (reviewed under separate post) a bit more often- that one gives me really glowy and fresh faced look and definitely not as cool as this palette.

刷毛夠軟很好沾粉. 

整體上來說我可能比較喜歡秋冬那款限量的雙層「雪晶魔幻鏡光亮顏盒」(另發文), 那款的打亮層對我來說比較好上手,要稍稍不同的打亮色也很好區分,這盤分的太細要沾單色反而難呢.

  璀燦唇蜜-聖誕限定色(SNOW CRYSTAL SHIMMER LIPGLOSS THE SNOW)

 This is the promo pic for the lipgloss in SR201 (pink snow).

 iswii.net 公關圖- SR201色(Pink Snow). 


My pic and comments: 實品圖~

Wow this is certainly a really, really interesting lipgloss. I only got SR201 "Pink Snow" shade, but might go and get the other color too. I have to say I have never seen a finish like this, supposedly it contains 'multi-coating pearl', it's almost like you know how some nailpolishes can reflect the rainbow or selected colors and looks wonderfully complex under different lights, this lipgloss is just like that.
 
很意外的愛上這條唇蜜(買了粉晶 SR201 Pink Snow), 本來想說看起來有點太金屬粉紅色了, 不過一試後真的漂亮到不行, 有點像凝膠般的粉透唇蜜底中混了無數的霓虹珍珠粉末, 上到唇上反而沒有任何明顯的亮粉感, 也沒有金屬感 (我很討厭太閃又金屬光重的唇彩), 這條只是把我的唇弄的跟廣告唇中一樣美~ 嫩嫩的粉紅色, 又有點透透的感覺. 我想的裡面的光澤真的把唇色不均調整的完美啊..

Sponge tip applicator, there's a little groove in the middle to hold the right amount of gloss.

海棉刷頭, 中間小凹, 沾一次剛剛好的用量.

Laneige snow crystal shimmer gloss SR201 (6).JPG

Even in photos you can see what I mean, it's almost like a light pink gel lipgloss infused with millions of soft multi-reflective pearl shimmers in a gorgeous midtone pink and reflecting some pink-gold or peach-gold. On the lips you don't actually see the discernable shimmer, it just makes my lip look like the girl in the ad! (I do have naturally rosy lips though). Lipgloss is lightly grapefruit scented, nice but I do prefer unscented glosses better. Supposedly contains nano-water and snow crystal powder which keeps your lips moisturised (ok...what the heck are snow crystal powder....haha).

 Overall a good buy.

試色圖~ 它的光澤真的很美吧! 超細的亮粉感, 不是那種閃閃亮片唇蜜可以比的.

再來一圖~

 Laneige snow crystal shimmer gloss SR201 (5).JPG

 iswii 公關文寫的是: 璀璨唇蜜-聖誕限定色,推出粉晶(SR201 Pink Snow)及粉膚晶(N201 Beige Snow)兩款霓虹色調的限定色彩,運用雪花片片飄落的原理,讓多層膜珍珠光澤(Multi-coating pearl)交錯形成霓虹光彩,呈現出晶瑩剔透的璀璨色澤,並且隨著視覺角度不同,變化出不同的色彩光澤。此外,成份中蘊含雪晶粉末與奈米修護水,使唇蜜質地潤澤保濕,色彩飽和度高且持久。 
 

另外的眼采盤我沒買, 不過讀到的評價都普普~

雪影奢華眼采盤(THE SNOW EYE PALETTE)10g / NT$ 1,100 ◎眼采盤共推出羅曼雪影(Romantic Snow)與魅惑奢華(Glam Snow)兩款,皆以三色眼影的組合方式,完美呈現如珍珠光澤的雪晶色彩。眼采盤中淺色可用於眼窩打底和重點打亮,另外兩色眼影可組合成多種妝效,細緻飽滿色澤,展現華麗的明亮層次感。

 

 

Lastly is the eyeshadow palettes which I didn't get- not sure how I feel about buying a huge compact with varying 3 shades of similar colors, though it looks nice in the promo picture but if you look at her eyeshadow alone, it's not all that special...

Laneige is not exactly cheap if purchased in Taiwan, if you buy directly from Korea, I suppose it works out cheaper than my approx USD pricse listed previously, but I'm still more a Japanese brand person.. Do have to admit the last few Laneige items I've tried are all amazingly gorgeous. Not sure whether this purple palette is the 'Romantic Snow' palette or the 'Glame Snow' palette. (the other palette is blue based I think). 
 

最後是- 雪影奢華眼采盤, ....老實說加上運費就算從韓國買, Laneige並不算便宜呢...雖說品質真的很不錯,不過我想很多人還是跟我一樣覺得歐美牌還有日系比較"值得"撒錢吧, 不過真要跟韓系彩妝拍拍手...越來越美! 紫色這盤是"羅曼雪影(Romantic Snow)" 或魅惑奢華(Glam Snow).
