Kose Esprique Precious Rouge Stylish Fine Color Lipstick PK840

This is sort of an outdated review as Kose has already discontinued Esprique Precious and relaunch this line as "Esprique"

Anyways, sometime last year as we were stuck in Tokyo last year because of a flight overbook situation, we wandered around Shinjuku in Tokyo and an employee at Matsumoto-Kiyoshi handed me a sample of Esprique Precious lipstick in color PK840.

I didn't pay much attention this this sample packet and it has since sit in my make up sample drawer. Recently, I unearth this little gem and tried applying this gem.

I am totally amazed by the quality. It's smooth and moisturizing and my lips feel so soft. The lipstick itself has some very tiny micro glitter and it has a nice sheen to it. I applied a transparent Lancome gloss at the center of my lips for a 3D lip look.

Even this sample has a mere 2g, I have been using it for more than 6 times already and I have a good 50% remaining. Who doesn't love free samples?

samples are great? You can try them, use them up faster, no waste!

lol, I saw how many samples you give Fuz!!! Maybe Korean brands are keen to give out samples?? Are you into Kiehl's? I got some samples from them and I can share them with you next time I mail you :)

Emm, I just had chicken rice the other night... nothing beats chicken rice of Singapore!!!

Jie Jie said...

Yes, they do such as skin food:)

Hmm.. I'm keen to try Kiehls, what do you have?

I love Chicken rice, I had it for lunch today!!

I have a bunch of different things, like toner, eye serum, facial moisturizer, shampoos, etc...

Their facial moisturizer is awesome for winter but I am not sure how it will work out in hot and humid Singapore as I dont usually use them in the summer time myself. But if you are a working professional that is in a cool and dry ac all day maybe it will work?

I will send you some samples next time I mail you another bunch of carmex, how does it sound?

I think I saw Kiehl's store in Raffles last time I was in Sg... but I may be wrong... some Kiehl's staff are really nice and give you loads of samples but some are not... haha!

Yes, you're right, my skin is dryer in air-conditioned office, for more than 8hours, especially eyes area!

Yup, that'd be lovely!!
