I ♥ Sonia Rykiel

Sonia Rykiel is a French fashion brand with a Japanese beauty line. The products from the beauty line are manufactured in Japan for Asian consumers.

I have been coveting them for a year now, but I have always hesitated due to the fact that the price tag was too much for my weak heart to handle haha -.- Not anymore.. I present to you my first ever Sonia Rykiel cosmetics!

Name: Sonia Rykiel ソニア リキエル Palette Yeux Colores パレット ユー コロール 02
Price: ¥ 5,000 for 6.7 g
@cosme rating: 4.5
Release date: 1.11.2009

I looove her packaging, it is so appealing

Normally, I would not go for this combo - warm shades are so not me. But I could not resist when I found out that it is LE!

I will review this trio soon =] Reviewed here.

Name: Sonia Rykiel ソニア リキエル Gloss Trio グロス トリオ 02
Price: ¥ 2,800 for 9 g
@cosme rating: 4.6
Release date: 15.5.2009

This lip gloss is also LE. Surprisingly, 02 is a popular shade amongst @cosme reviewers. I doubt that I can discover what shade it will turn once mixed, because I am not going to use it haha!

There are two other shades from this range, pink and peach:

Name: Sonia Rykiel ソニア リキエル L'Atout Eclat Sublime ラトゥー エクラ シュブリム S SPF15 PA+
Price: ¥ 4,000 for 30 ml
@cosme rating: 4.4
Release date: 14.9.2007

This makeup base has an elegant and luxurious packaging.

Hygienic pump bottle~

Creamy texture~

I noticed that it gives out a subtle bright glowy sheen once blended ← specially formulated with lavender pearl

It spreads and blends like a dream, does not clog my pores and is just wonderful! But then again, I love this brand so I am a tad bit biased ;D

My love of everything Sonia Rykiel does not end in this entry...

See the stripey lipstick tube? ^_~

It sucks that I can't find Sonia Rykiel in the USA. I really love that palette though! It's so nice! :D

S.Elisabeth said...

Ah I love Sonia Rykiel. I never knew she had a Japanese make-up line, that's so awesome! Can't wait to see how you use them!

Good lord woman! Fabulous haul! I'm also drooling over your Lunasol photo in the banner - they look like bricks of copper and gold! xD I request to see the whole photo in its glory! ;)

The packaging looks like a candy box. But it's almost 4 in the afternoon and I have not eaten anything today, so maybe I'm just hungry! Oh wait, now that I take a 2nd look, the palette looks like little pools of dark, milk, and white chocolate. Yum! =)

Hope you're having a nice weekend.

I have never tried this brand before but I have came across them many times.

The base looks refreshing and the lipgloss 01 looks so yummy to eat.
