When the StyleKorean, a Korean Online Beauty Store, asked me to pick a few products to try out last month, I had to pick this Laneige X Lucky Chouette Multi Face Color to try. How can I possibly resist the cuteness of the owl:)
StyleKorean stocks a wide range of sought after Korean beauty products, a little like Cult Beauty in the UK. There are plenty more products I would like to try from the site. If you’re a makeup-junkie like moi, you probably would feel like you have died and gone to heaven:) StyleKorean ships internationally and my parcel arrived within 5 working days.
Over to the product, this is my first experience with Laneige. I have seen many beauty bloggers from Korea, Singapore and Vietnam posting numerous tempting photos and reviews and I was excited to try!
Since 2014, LANEIGE has collaborated with a different fashion designer each year to bring to its customers a limited edition makeup collection. This year LUCKY CHOUETTE, a Korean fashion house, known for its contemporary street style and adorable prints, contributes a vibrant look to the popular beauty brand. ‘Chouette’ is French for ‘owl’ and a symbol of luck. That’s probably how the name LUCKY CHOUETTE came about. Its owl mascot Bella (pink) and Vely (blue) play a major role in this collection.
What Laneige official says about Laneige X Lucky Chouette Multi Face Color:
1. Through the collaboration of Laneige X Lucky Chouette, the product in the design of owl characters Bella Chouette and Vely Chouette has high collectible value!
2. Using the face-blending brush and the eye shadow brush improves multi-use of highlighter & eye shadow!
3. Soft highlighting effect improves attraction index!
Let’s look at the packaging details of Laneige X Lucky Chouette Multi Face Color :
Tell me I am not the only one that find the owl super cute!:)
Here are the swatches taken indoors in natural lighting. A few swipes were needed for the orange body and blue wing to show up. My arm was moisturised prior to swatching but no primer was applied.
All parts of the powder are very silky to the touch, thin in texture and very finely-milled. The powder is a little dusty but the powderiness does not translate onto my skin.
The Multi Face Color comes in the design of Vely Chouette with Bella’s charming eyes. The eyes are only printed on the plastic cover as shown in photo above. After a few days of admiring, I took some deep breaths and started using the palette. I couldn’t quite pick up products from the orange body and blue wing to use as eyeshadows. The background shade can be used as a wash but will be a very sheer one, sufficient if you just want a little something on a no-makeup makeup day. The white face has the most pigmentation as well as shimmers and I love using it as a tear duct highlight. Personally I don’t think I would use the palette as eyeshadows.
For the most parts I prefer swirling my blush brush over everything to use as a highlighter. It gives a beautiful sheen which is not metallic. It’s perfect for some light strobing, or as a blush topper, giving me a healthy glow. Laneige X Lucky Chouette Multi Face Color is kind to pores or skin texture so you can go to town with it! I also use it as finishing powder on the days my skin looks extra tired and awfully sallow (most winter days!:(). I would have to prepare to blot more often as my oiliness would also shine through. The powder wears well over 6 hours before showing signs of fading. If you’re after an in-your-face highlighter, this is not for you.
Overall, I am a proud owner of Laneige X Lucky Chouette Multi Face Color. I very much enjoy using it as a subtle highlighter. My only problem is… I like it so much and with regular use I would eventually wear down the Lucky Chouette:(
Have you tried anything from Laneige? Is this Lucky Chouette calling your name?
Hope this was helpful.
Until next time beauties.
Much love always,
