Victorian Disco Review: Crystalline Affections 'Rinoa x Squall'

During one of of the Victorian Disco sales, I managed to pick up the last sets of the Crystalline Affections shadows. I love the concept of them and the colors are gorgeous. This next one is based on Rinoa and Squall from final Fantasy VIII.

Crystalline Affections Collection 
 A collection inspired by Final Fantasy. Specifically, these are duos that represent some of the characters as a romantic couple. Super cute and unique!

Price and Availability
You can find these at the Victorian Disco Cosmetics.
Full Size Duo - $8
Mini Size Duo - $4    

Super cute! Love the stickers on the jars! Remember that only the full size jars come with the stickers.
This is actually Tidus x Yuna but you can get an idea of what the packaging looks like.



Rinoa - medium-toned cornflower blue with a blue sheen.
Squall - deep golden brown with gold shimmer.

As usual, the formula of these were really fantastic. Squall is super pigmented and absolutely perfect, and the color reminds me a lot of a darker version of NARS Galapagos. Rinoa is exactly what I would imagine a Rinoa-inspired color to look like! This one is a bit sheerer and a little more difficult to use, but it has a very beautiful sheen and shimmer. I think this is such a cute pairing, but I am not sure how to use these colors together yet. I always love using brown with blue, yet I am having a hard time using the two together in one look. I will keep trying so I can post a look using these two.
But, besides my little dilemma, these look really nerdtastic on the eyes!

Which of the two is your favorite?


  1. Both the colours are pretty spot on how i imagine they'd be! :D Blue like Rinoa's clothing and brownish or blackish for Squall, hehe.

  2. Seeing as how I'm currently playing this and it's my favorite FF ever, I think I'm gonna buy these. *_*

  3. Those colors look good.

  4. Ooh, I love how Squall looks! Rinoa looks very pretty too. :)
