Five lip-glosses are also included in the raffle. These lip colors are inspired by various EVAs, such as Unit-00, Unit-06, Unit-01, Unit-08, and Unit-02. Those who enter will also have the opportunity to win translucent loose powder in an A.T. FIELD design case and a mirror stand featuring the artwork of this collaboration.
