Blast From the Past: Sofina Aube

Wow. I'm so sorry that I missed out on this brand's eyeshadow palettes. According to Fleckschnitte on Makeupalley (or over at lotuspalace.blogspot.com) she totally raved about them.

Unfortunately, the only thing I managed to get--by swapping--was one Fruitina lipgloss. That's not a bad thing though, as these are some major shine lipglosses. But I still wish I could've gotten my hands on some of those fabulous eyeshadow palettes before the mother company Sofina redesigned Aube.

Now it just looks very silly--with those boring colors as eyeshadows! Gah!

Anyways. Sofina Aube Fruitina Gloss EX05. Here it is in all of it's glory. Some comments:

-Pleasant smell, I would say fruity.
-Great not too sticky texture with lasting power.
-Mirror-like shine!
-Color is sheer but still shows up on me as slightly milky beige pink.
-The wand is great, not exactly doefoot (slightly bigger and more flimsy), easy for swiping across full lips but depositing lots of color.


  1. You could still get some things online...adambeauty.com still has some palettes left :)

    I've only tried the Jewelry Shower Eyes in Purple but didn't like the colours on me actually. Haven't tried anything else mostly because of that.

  2. Hey '*:.blu3.:*'!
    Oh I see! :D Off to check them out now.

    I swatched them--absolutely LOVED them and am totally kicking myself for not getting them :((
