Unboxing: Dear Dahlia Paradise Dual Palette (Sponsored Product / New Arrival)

YASSSSS!

One of the prettiest and classiest K-Beauty brand has recently released several new products, under one line, and I have first dibs here in Singapore – explaining the YASSSSS in my opening post.

I am psyched! And I did an unboxing video which you can view after the jump, but before that, let me just briefly show you guys what this (these) new product(s) is.

Below is the product info for each of the Paradise Dual Palettes:

The Paradise Dual Palette is divided into 3 categories, namely Multi (Multi-Balm Duo), Mix (Eye Shadow Duo), and Match (Multi-Balm & Eye Shadow Trio).

Bonus (small)

Since their inception, Dear Dahlia has always operated solely online. However, with their latest launch of the Paradise Dual Palette, they held a show-and-tell event and invited everyone (ok, only those who are in Korea at the moment) to browse their products and purchase them directly.

One of the guests they invited was Vogue Korea and they succintly captured the event/showroom beautifully. I have uploaded the video posted by Vogue Korea for you guys to see.

On a parting note, I just have to reiterate that Dear Dahlia has been planning their products, concept including design, style, type, material etc etc, for a very long time. In the cosmetic industry, having similarity in design is hard to avoid. There could be similarity from a consumer’s point of view, but from a brand’s perspective, their idea, their vision, their execution are what makes it unique and apart.
Similarity is excusable. Copy + Paste is downright wrong.
