Yes, I've fallen prey to yet another furoku (Japanese magazine freebie) trap!!! This one felt too good to resist though, a rare makeup collaboration between Japanese boho brand Ungrid and fashion trend magazine Gina. The set consists of 5 glosses that can be used as eyeshadow, cheek colour or lip gloss, in a range of warm orange-y tones that seem to be all the rage now, complete with boho-ish names like earth and sunset and meteor : )
是的，我又中了日雜贈品的毒啦 orz 雖然跟自己說化妝品爆多了要收手但是這次的誘惑太大真是忍不住啦！Ungrid跟日雜Gina四月號的合作，是難得的Ungrid彩妝付錄。送的是一組5支的3-way gloss，可以拿來當眼蜜、頰彩或唇彩。色彩方面也是最近大流行的橘紅色系，配上earth、sunset、meteor之類波希米亞風滿滿的名字 ; )
01 earth (a pinkish brown shimmer) -- this comes off as a pretty warm brown on the eyes, as a lipgloss it is more of a metallic nudish brown.
02 sunset (a wine red gloss) -- a deep red on the lips with a very glossy finish, this gives a flush of red to the complexion when used as a blush. It is a bit more tricky to use on the eyes but can be pulled off with some patient dabbing.
03 meteor (a glittery clear gloss) -- a plain clear gloss with prismatic glitter bits that adds a glossy shine wherever you apply it, be it on the eyelids, on the lips or even on the cheekbones as a highlight.
04 sunrise (a clear orange gloss) -- looks bright tangerine in the bottle, but the orange pigmentation is minimal. Adds a very slight orange tinge and glossy shine but not much more.
05 twilight (rusty orange shimmer) -- my favourite shade of the five, it's a very trendy burnt orange shade and the gold iridiscent shimmer adds a metallic sheen to the lips. Can be used as eyeshadow as well.
04 sunrise －－ 透明亮橘色，瓶子裡看起來是很亮的柑橘色，但是用起來比較像帶點橘的透明唇彩。可以用來增加一點橘色調（比如疊在其他唇彩上）或是增加水亮感（臉部或唇妝都適用）。
05 twilight －－ 珠光橘棕色，是5色中的最愛。這個顏色是現下還滿流行的鐵鏽橘。因為帶有非常細緻的金色珠光所以用在唇上會有點金屬光澤。當眼影用也很好看。
The applicator looks just like any others, no complaints there as I find it quite handy. The bottom picture are the swatches on paper, in numerical order from left to right. Sorry about the middle swatch, I spent a bit of time trying to adjust the lens focus and the clear gloss simply seeped into the paper and turned into a glorious beglittered water stain.
For the eyes, after priming the lids apply 05 twilight liberally over entire lid, layering on more gloss until desired colour payoff is achieved. Apply 02 sunset over outer 1/3 of the eye by patting on the colour with fingers. Wait a moment for the glosses to dry down slightly, then blend along the edges with fingertips. Add black eyeliner and mascara et voila!
眼妝的部分，眼皮打底後先在眼窩範圍內豪邁的用指腹擦上05 twilight，並重疊拍上直到足夠飽和。眼尾1/3再用指腹輕拍疊上02 sunset。待稍乾後用指腹將邊緣輕輕暈開，再畫上黑色眼線睫毛膏就完成啦～: )
For the lips it's fairly simple. Simply apply 05 twilight over the lips, I find the enclosed applicator quite easy to use. As you can see, this rusty orange shade has a lovely metallic sheen up close, though it does accentuate lip lines a bit.
唇妝就超簡單，直接用附上的刷頭刷上05 twilight，我覺得刷頭其實還滿好用的。可以看見這個鐵鏽橘色上在唇上有點金屬光的感覺，不過會有點顯唇紋就是了 : P

Look 1 is basically an orange-and-red toned look, along with the glossy finish of the base makeup and eye and lip colours (and probably the sea-coloured nails too ) a picture of one's sunkissed beach vacay evening comes to mind.
Look 1主要走一個橘橘紅紅的路線，橘紅色的眼妝唇妝配上底妝跟眼影的潤澤感（還有海水綠色指甲油 : P）莫名有種黃昏時分的海邊度假氛圍 XDD
Look 2 is solely about deep red lips I guess. 02 sunset is really really glossy, and fairly pigmented for a watery-type lipgloss. Still, it takes about 2-3 coats to achieve the payoff in the photo above. Not surprisingly though, it's a bit tricky to line the lips using this gloss due to its watery nature, and careful application is of utmost neccesity to avoid the dreaded awful "clown" lips.
Look 2直接以酒紅唇為重點。02 sunset真的非常水潤，以水潤型唇蜜來說顏色算是蠻飽和的，不過還是要疊個兩三次才能達到照片裡的飽和度。另外因為太水潤有點難畫好唇線，不小心翼翼的描畫的話很容易就畫出界變小丑妝QQ

On a sidenote, these 2 looks featured today were really the speediest I have been in recent makeup post endeavors. While the lips might have taken a bit longer, the eye makeup were simply just dot and pat and blend all the way. For Look 2, I simply applied a few dots of 01 earth on the lids and blend with the fingers, then I repeated the steps on the outer corner of the eyes for 2 more times et voila! I think it took less than 2 minutes max : P Also used 04 sunrise on the cheeks, but this shade is practically an orange-tinged clear gloss so not much of the colour showed after I blended it out ...but hey at least I got a dewy glow out of it :D
不是我要說，今天的兩個妝容大概是我近期分享妝文以來畫的最快的了吧！唇妝可能花了稍微比較多時間，但是眼妝真的就是用手指豪邁的上豪邁的推開這樣。Look 2 的眼妝就是用01 earth點幾點在眼皮上然後推開，眼尾再疊個兩次加強一下 ...眼妝大概兩分鐘不到吧 XDDD 另外臉頰有擦上04 sunrise，不過這隻本身就顏色很透，推開之後橘色基本看不太清楚，不過倒是可以看到水潤的光澤哈哈 : D

That's all this time! There're so many possibilities with these 5 glosses, 2 looks felt a bit paltry but oh well, I'm being lazy so that's that then ; ) Oh, and this magazine costs just about 780yen, it'll not set you back considerably so I really think if you come across one there's no harm in trying them out.
這次就這樣囉！這組5種顏色又可以多用真的有太多的排列組合可以嘗試了，2個妝容反而感覺有點稀少 ...不過再拍好麻煩就請將就一下我這隻懶蟲吧 QQ 對了，這本雜誌價錢是780日圓（博客來好像賣NT300多），等於一支60幾元加一本雜誌，有看到可以買來玩玩看啦！
As usual ending the post with a medley of Instagrams, it's April and pink is in the air! (@bonjourjasmineblog)
