From Rakuten JP, I got a hold of two more Coffret D'Or Premium Stay Rouge from the 2016 LE winter collection, PK-310 and RD-221. I skipped the remaining four colors BE-230, BE-231, PK-309, and RS-336 since I'd swatched them in person and didn't like what I saw. These colors no longer have names, just the color numbers as usual.
All pictures taken in natural light without flash.
The winter LE's come in pearlized metallic champagne tubes, versus the metallic champagne tubes of the fall LE's, though both have clear brown bands and top cap. Honestly though, the pearlized metallic tube looks a tad cheaper and more plastic than the regular metallic tubes, so I'm not a huge fan.
- PK-310: a pretty peach with coral undertone. Considering I'd swatched this color in white indoor lighting, I find the color in natural light consistent with my expectations. This color goes on me slightly milky, but thank goodness it adapts and is wearable.
- RD-221: despite being brownish-looking in the tube, this is a lovely warm red, again with coral undertone. This color is also consistent with my expectations from the indoor swatches. Very flattering on and I wish I have a backup. The problem was that I barely got a hold of this one tube to begin with. It was already mostly sold out on Rakuten JP when I got my order through. Damn.
PK-310 and RD-221.
Here's a comparison between Rouge Essence RD-208, RD-204, and RD-198, versus Premium Stay Rouge PK-310 and RD-221, versus RD-215 and PK-289.
