It’s the midweek! I hope you’re having a good time at work/school. Today I have Lunasol Aurorized Eyes 04 to show you. I got this for $37 at Kanebo sale few months ago. On the sale, I also bought another eye palette which I will be showing to you all soon and a brown eyeliner which I have reviewed before. You can read my review here.
The packaging looks simple and sleek. Although I am not a big fan of Gold case, I still find this attractive because it’s not too shiny. It’s prone to finger prints but not as bad as YSL’s palette case. It’s quite lightweight but I guess it’s not a problem this time because I quite like the design of the eye palette.
Lunasol eyeshadow is very sheer and sparkly. The pigmentation is not something that I am looking for in an eyeshadow, it’s too sheer for my liking. The texture is very buttery and soft. I must say that Lunasol’s eyeshadow texture is really good and it’s close enough to a very high end brand like Suqqu. Although the texture is amazing, fallouts are inevitable. I always do my eye look first before applying my sunblock and face powder so I can clean any eye shadow fallouts during application. I will show the swatches at the end of this post, you can take a look on how sheer and sparkly it is.
In the swatches below, You can see that only 2 colors are pigmented. I swiped my finger twice to achieve this pigmentation.
As you can see from the two swatch picture above, the purple and the taupe are the ones that show up the best. The shimmery pink still shows the color but not too good. The other two colors are not something that I like because they’re just shimmer and look very similar. There’s a slight difference between the two color but I guess it’s doesn’t look very different at all. Both are too frosty for my liking.
As you know, I am a big fan of shimmer eyeshadow. As much as I love shimmer eyeshadow, I hope the pigmentation would still be there. The taupe and the purple don’t disappoint, the pigmentation is up to my expectation for Japanese eyeshadow. However the other three colors are just very boring; too shimmery and the colors are obviously very dull.
In the eye look above, I am using the shimmery pink all over my lid. Then I am using the purple on the outer corner of my eye to create dimension. Finally the taupe is blended on the outer corner but more onto the eyelid to create gradation.
The packaging of this eyeshadow is not the best of what I would expected. However I am still satisfied with the packaging. The texture of this eyeshadow is satisfactory. It’s buttery smooth and the fallouts are controllable. I would say that Lunasol’s eyeshadow quality is comparable to many high end Japanese brands. However the pigmentation is a disappointing for the 3 eyeshadows (the other 2 are fine). They are way too shimmery and frosty.
In conclusion, I am still happy to get this at $37 during Kanebo sale. I believe Lunasol’s eyeshadow are great, I might have bought a wrong one during the sale because of its limited choice.
Do you have any Lunasol’s eyeshadow? What’s your opinion about it?
