Coffret D'Or Premium Stay Rouge Part VI

I have to do some photo gymnastics to skip over a great many of food and vacation pics to get to these lovely Coffret D'Or Premium Stay Rouge in RD-220 Orchid Red and WN-74 Cassis Wine, both LE from the 2016 fall collection.

I've already swatched this collection in person back in September, and while at it I'll mention that I have the LE PK-310 and RD-221 from the winter collection also, both secured via Rakuten JP. Will review these later.

All pictures taken in natural light without flash.

These LE fall collection lippies come in a pretty metallic champagne tubes with clear brown bands and top cap. Yes, they're still plastic, but nowhere near the light and cheap feel of the Jill Stuart Rouge My Dress that costs 500yen more plus tax, and with a far superior formula to boot.

Here are the different LE packagings, from left to right: spring 2015, Party Coffret 2015, permanent lineup, spring 2016, and finally this fall and winter 2016.

Unlike the 2016 spring releases that were totally washed out and different in natural lighting than when I swatched them in store, to my great relief these fall LE remains true to the colors I expected them to be ^.^ Both are pigmented, and the jelly formula just makes me drool.

- RD-220 Orchid Red: looks brownish red in the tube but is definitely a cool and juicy translucent red. The blue wash turns it a bit raspberry in the swatch photo but it's not, definitely not on my lips. Love!

Due to the brownish red appearance in the tube, here's a comparison between: Lunasol Full Glamour Lips 22 Deep Bordeaux, 18 Brown Red, this RD-220, and Rouge Essence RD-208. As you can see, it's not brown at all and definitely leans cool.

- WN-74 Cassis Wine: cool and translucent violet. Absolutely adore this color and secured a backup of it!

RD-220 Orchid Red and WN-74 Cassis Wine.

I have so few violet, wine, and blackberry lippies that I've compared below this WN-74, Lipstick Queen Bete Noire Possessed Sheer, Butterfly Ball Goodbye, and Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint Energy Noir (will review in a later post with more LipSurgence pencils).

I have stalked adambeauty for quite a bit and it seems that they won't carry this collection at all (since they just sneakily put the fall 2016 LE smile up cheeks)...On the bright side, these colors won't be very flaterring on my anyway (a few weeks ago I took out suqqu akanebara for some play time, the wine just made me look poisoned...thanks to my purply F/W coloring) so I am only missing out the tube color.

Hey Citrine,

Aww...May be the RD-220 will work since you do like cool reds? You should email Adam and ask him whether he'd be stocking the fall collection.

I just played with my Akanebara and I love it! Will review later.
