This is sort of an outdated review as Kose has already discontinued Esprique Precious and relaunch this line as "Esprique"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