Laneige Spring 2014 Makeup Collection [Photos & Swatches]

This Spring 2014, get set to be spoilt for choice as Laneige launches its all new exciting comprehensive range of eyeshadow palettes, blushes and lipsticks!  There are 7 highly-pigmented Pur Radiant Shadow palettes; 6 Pure Radiant Blush colors and 20 vivid Serum Intense Lipstick colours.  Experiment, Experience and Enjoy - there'll be something to suit every woman, for any mood and occasion!  It's time to grab all the attention you want, like a K-pop star, with 2014 makeup trend: Natural Skin Tone, Well-Defined eyes using neutral eye colours, and vivid lipstick brightens up the complexion!

Pure Radiant Shadow Palettes  (SGD$40 each)

Each Pure Radiant Shadow palette comes with four highly-pigmented colour shades.  Made with ultra-fine, consistent particle colour base and sponge-like, elastic powder that glides on smoothly and evenly on the eyelids.  Laneige Pure Radiant Shadow gives a high-colour realization with just one swipe.  

Available in 7 shades - from nude to smokey or sweet to glamorous. 

Pure Radiant Blush (SGD$38 each)

Give your cheeks a soft, natural and lively glow with the new Laniege Pure Radiant Blush!  Available in 6 attractive tones for subtle to shading use, the Pure Radiant Blush contains highly transparent mica that gives a smoother and moe radiant finish upon application.  It is also long-lasting and requires no correction. 
In addition, the fine particle powder, with superior glow scattering effect, helps fill up any unevenness or fine wrinkles on the skin, while reflecting light at various angles to render a bright and lively complexion.  

Serum Intense Lipstick (SGD$34 each)

Let your lips pop with Laneige's new Serum Intense Lipstick and have fun creating different looks from the choice of 20 vivid lipstick colours, perfectly suited to Asian skin tones!  It contains 3 types of moisture-sealing formula for long-lasting hydration and 35% skincare ingredients that protect the lips, namely - 
1. Glycerin - absorbs moisture in the air and supply it to the skin 
2. Physiogel Lotion - fills the cracks on lips that experience high water loss
3. Natural Botantical, Squalene, supplies oxygen to the skin and enhances skin respiration and forms a protective layer. 

Quick swatches & first impressions of some of the products - I will be incorporating these products in a LOTD soon. 

06 Classy Mood is a very finely milled eyeshadow palette.  It contains all matte shades, very velvety and smooth to the touch.  The colours are very natural and I am excited to see how they actually perform on the eyes. 

Serum Intense lipstick in LR08 Flair Magenta is a bright pop of color, and the texture is creamy and smooth.  It is quite intense in colour payoff, but yet not too dramatic.  This is a bright rosy deep pink... and when I saw the names of the other 20 shades in this range... I am quite intrigued by the colors!  (Think Neon Orange!)

06 Natural Shading is a shade darker than my skintone... which makes it a great contour powder.. it is the sort of powder that I like to use on the outer areas of my face to provide a subtle shading.  (Think something along the lines of my Les Beiges powder). 

A quick demo on the model taken from the press images:

All the products come in a sleek clean packaging, and I like the compact cases of the blushes & eyeshadows!  Not too bulky and feels good & sturdy.  

I hope this initial overview and swatches have been useful.. Thanks for reading~

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.
