ADDICTION Spring Collection Addiction Campaign Set


2月25日、アディクションは2010年のスプリングコレクション “パステル レインボー”を2種類の限定バージョンと同時に発売しました。私が購入 したキャンペーンアディクションセットにはリップスティックの018S プペ、アイシャドウの 036P リモンチェロ、ブラッ シュの09 アシッドピンク、ミニサイズ ミスティオンリフレッシュミスト、ミニサイズ リップグロスの 003 ドリームピロー、そしてアディクション オリジナルのポーチが 入っています。プペ、リモンチェロ、アシッドピンクは全て限定カラーです。

On February 25th, Addiction released their 2010 Spring Collection "Pastel Rainbow," as well as two limited edition sets. The Campaign Addiction set which I purchased includes, one lipstick in 018S Poupée, one eyeshadow in 036P Limoncello, a blush in 09 Acid Pink, a mini-size Misty On skin refresher, one mini-size lipgloss in 003 Dream Pillow, and an original Addiction pouch. Poupée, Limoncello, and Acid Pink are all limited edition shades.

アディク ション オリジナルのポーチは頑 丈でスタイリッシュ、シルバーのクラッチに適度な量のパッドが入っていて、コスメを守ってくれます。結構小さいので、キャンペーンアディクションセットの ような、いくつかの製品が入るほどの大きさでしかありませんが、持ち歩くには充分の良い出来で魅力的です。

The original Addiction pouch is a sturdy and stylish, silver clutch with a fair amount of padding to keep your cosmetics safe. It is quite small and only large enough to store a few products, such as the Campaign Addiction set, but it is well-made and attractive enough to carry with you around town.

アディクショ ンリップスティックのプペはミディアム・ピンクのシアーなリップカラーです。つややかで光沢があり、潤いがありますが、幾分かしか発色がないので、もともと唇の色が薄くない方や色を ハッキリと見せたいという方は、リップコンシーラーかプライマーをつける必要があると思います。私の場合は、唇が僅かに明るくなって少しピンクになるだけですが、これは好きな色です。

The Addiction lipstick in Poupée is a medium-pink lip color that applies sheer. It is waxy, shiny and moisturizing but because it is only somewhat pigmented, you will need to wear a lip concealer or primer if your lips are not naturally pale and you want the color to really show. In my case, it only makes my lips look slightly lighter and pinker but I do like the shade.

リモンチェロは明るくて、ゴールドのようなパール感があるライムグリーン色をしたアイシャドウです。それなりに発色は 良いですが、明るい肌には微かにしか見えません。色の濃さはシャドウを湿らせて付けることで強めることが出来ますが、リモンチェロはスプリングキャンペーンのモデルに見えるほど、ドラマチックでも濃いわけでもありません。アイシャドウのパウダー自体は非常に柔らかくてスムーズ、そして私が過去にレビューした全てのアディクションのシャドウ と同じくキープ力があります。この色は春にピッタリですし、もしグリーンが好きという方には、メイクアップコレクションの中のひとつとして持つにふさわしいシャドウです。

Limoncello is a bright, lime-green eyeshadow with a pearly gold sheen. It is fairly pigmented but can look almost subtle on pale skin. You can build up its intensity by applying the shadow wet but Limoncello is not quite as dramatic or as intense as it appears on the model in the spring campaign. The eyeshadow powder itself is very soft, smooth and has great lasting power as with all of the Addiction shadows that I have reviewed in the past. It is a perfect shade for spring and if you are fond of green, it is a great shadow to have in your makeup collection.

ブラッシュ のアシッドピンクは良質な白いラメが入ったローズピンクのフェイスカラーです。このブラッシュは健康的な赤らみとピンクのパール感、そして近寄ってみないと気付かないほどですが、キラキラを与えてくれます。フェイスパウダー自体は柔らかくて多少発色が良く(恐らく暗 めの肌だと分からないかもしれません)、肌にすぐに馴染みます。これは春と夏にピッタリなブラッシュで す。

The Blush in Acid Pink is a rose-pink face color packed with fine white shimmer. The blush gives the cheeks are nice healthy flush, a pearly-pink sheen and a pretty sparkle that is only really noticeable up close. The face powder itself is soft and somewhat pigmented (though may not show on darker skin tones) and instantly blends into the skin. This is just the right blush for spring and summer.

リップグロ スのドリームピローは、ラメが入ったパール感のあるホワイトグロスです。グロスは濃くもべとつきもしませんし、シアーな仕上がりです。唇をシャイニーで少しキラキラさせます。輝きを出すために、他のリップの上からこのグロスを使うことも出来ます。

The lip gloss in Dream Pillow is a pearly-white gloss with white shimmer. The gloss is neither thick nor sticky and applies sheer. It leaves the lips shiny and just a little sparkly. You can wear it over another lip color for some shine.

ミスティオンのトラベルブレンドはオーガニックでジュニパーベリーの香りがする、センチフォリアバラ花エキスとローズウォーターも配合された、スキンリフレッシャー です。ミストは肌と気持ちをリフレッシュさせる手助けをしてくれます。疲れて”リフレッシュ”したいと感じた時に、ミスティオンを顔から20~30センチ離してスプレーします。これだけを買おうとは思いませんので、キャンペーンアディクションセットには代わりの別のグロスをもうひとつ入れて欲しかったです。

Misty On in travel blend is an organic, juniper berry scented skin refresher that also contains rosa centifolia extract and rose water. The mist is supposed to help refresh your skin and mind. When you are tired and in need of feeling "refreshed," spray Misty On 20-30 cm away from your face. This is not a product that I would purchase separately and would have preferred it if the Campaign Addiction set included another lip gloss instead.

アディクションの2010年スプリングコレクションのキャンペーンアディクションセットは春に適したポイントメイクアップセットです。唯一残念なのは、ちょっと場違いなミスティオンのスキンリフレッシャーです。ほとんどの製品を使うと思いますが、マストアイテムのコフレと言えるかというと定かではありません。もし1つか2つ の製品にしか興味がないのであれば、セットではなく、別々に買うことをお勧めします。キャンペーンアディクションセットは7,980円(税込み)です。

Overall, the Campaign Addiction set from Addiction's 2010 Spring Collection is a decent point makeup set for spring. The only disappointment is the Misty On skin refresher which seems out of place. While I do see myself using most of the products, I do not know if I would call this a must-have coffret. If you are only interested in one or two of the products, I recommend forgoing the set and purchasing the products separately. The Campaign Addiction set is 7,980 yen (including tax).

Those colors are really pretty, but you must have a very pale complexion for them to show up....lucky you ;)

About the oatmeal...I don't see why you can't do this with Quaker oats, as long as it doesn't contain any other ingredients. Forewarning: The ground oatmeal by itself (save the bit of water added to form a paste/mask) is fairly messy and does not adhere to your face so well (as opposed to when combined with yogurt or honey (・ω・)

Regarding expenses in Tokyo vs. Vienna, I think it depends how and where one shops. Frankly, I buy a lot of things at second hand stores or on Ebay, due to personal taste and preference for vintage/quirky things (which I find a lot in second hand stores). It's funny because here, people brand it as a place where "poor people" shop. In the U.S., there were many second hand stores or thrift stores. Most sold really cheap things, but here the second hand stores in Vienna aren't really second hand stores to me, because they are very pricey, and the only second hand stores that are cheap (equivalent to U.S. thrift store prices) is the one "where poor people go to." There is only one in this region where you can actually go in to purchase something. The others are only for poor people who need things and don't need to pay for them.

Generally, Vienna has many many department shops/brands that can also be purchased in the U.S./international market (i.e H&M, but unfortunately no Forever21). Austrian brands are almost nonexistent, as their capital is in tourism and farming.

So as you can see, Vienna is no shopping heaven for me. Also, I didn't check the prices of things too much when I went to Tokyo last summer, since I had no money to shop at all, nor did I know where to shop. It's a shame because I love the Tokyo street fashion.

Lastly, the box I bought at the discount store is more like one of those cheap trinkets that you can buy in a Chinatown :D It's no antique! (Austrian antiques cost an arm and a leg unless you get them from the poor people store like I do ;) Usually the cheap discount things come from neighboring poorer countries i.e. Hungary, or Turkish people who come and sell things cheaper than Austrians.

Til next time,

Campaigns tend to lie sometimes, with size, colors, etc.
I like the lipstick too, very cute, and the eyeshadow too.

Oh, and the bag is very cool.

Kisses En!

Blair,

Thank you for commenting. Acid Pink is really great. Addiction is coming out with another blush this month, too.

Robolegojupiter,

Thank you for commenting. While I think Acid Pink is more suited for pale skin Limoncello would really pop and look amazing on dark skin.

Thank you for the tips on the oatmeal mask and shopping in Vienna. It's unfortunate that some of the shopping is limited. When it comes to clothing, second-hand stores can be quite expensive in Japan but you can get amazing deals on antique and recycled kimono. I hope you'll have an opportunity to go shopping the next time you're here. If you ever run out of money, there's always the 100 yen shop and Uniqlo!

Even though they may not be real antiques, those trinkets are very cute. =)

Melissa,

Thank you for commenting and thank you for the Sunshine award. I feel very honored (and a little embarrassed, too ;) ).

I had to get the lipstick as soon as I learned that the shade was called "Poupee." =P
