Kanebo LUNASOL is not a new name in the cosmetics scene. LUNASOL is derived from Latin words, Luna (moon) and Sol (sun). Founded in 1999, it has been growing strong ever since. As for me, I got to know about LUNASOL when I watched 女人我最大 few years back. The ease of application captured my attention and I remembered this brand until now.

I’ve got myself a LUNASOL Starter Kit 2012 for Spring/Summer; a limited-edition kit that features Lunasol’s legendary Skin Modeling Eyes in 01 Beige Beige eyeshadow quad, Full Glamour Gloss in EX20 (Soft Orange Coral), Cream Cheek in EX08 (Soft Orange Coral) and a beautiful cosmetics pouch.

Skin Modeling Eyes in 01 Beige Beige

As nude looks are very well received now, this kit is the perfect tool you’ll need to create your own nude makeup. A neutral palette, it gives my eyes the definition that it needs and yet doesn’t look too made up. But for those who have darker skin tones, it is recommended that you apply a base on your eyes first before applying the eyeshadow in order for it to show up well.

I found these tips to apply Skin Modeling Eyes eyeshadow from Lunasol’s website. I hope you’ll find it useful =)

How to use Skin Modeling Eyes palette

Cream Cheek in EX08 (Soft Orange Coral)

Blusher is very important to ensure our face doesn’t look pale like a ghost LOL! At the same time, I wouldn’t want to look like a Chinese opera singer too! So I proceed with caution and apply bit by bit on the apples of my cheek. Luckily enough, it was easy to blend so I can just push it away if it looks overdone.

Full Glamour Gloss in EX20 (Soft Orange Coral)

Just looking on the packaging, I thought it would be a very pinkish color so I was kinda worried of the outcome. Upon applying it, it doesn’t look so pink. In fact, it blends with the natural color of your lips with some fine shimmer, leaving it glossy and kissable!

Before

After
Color wasn’t so obvious on the eye part but defined the eyes more
and there were some shimmer on the brow bone.

OK! Maybe a close up! :p
See the ‘stars’ on my eyelids?

LUNASOL is well known for their long lasting cosmetics and thus is suitable for everyday office or college makeup without looking too dolled up. If you’re interested, do head to Kanebo’s counter at all major shopping centres and grab it as soon as possible because it’s limited edition and only available in May and June 2012!

  • Love the eyeshadow colors! I always use this type of color for work! 🙂 looks natural

  • I'm not very good with make up. Eye linear is the only thing I use everyday.

    • I'm opposite leh… kinda weak on gel eyeliner part but I'm practising =)

  • Sandy Ngiam

    You look relly great with Lunasol colors!

    • Thank you Sandy!! I still need to improve myself in blending the colors though 😀

  • Men can use ah? LMAO!

    • Since the eyeshadow looks so natural, can lor LOL!
      But not the blusher and lip gloss pls later ppl fled when saw you XD

  • I'm fascinated by the cream cheek! Although I think i would prefer a much pinker version. XD You look nice with the makeup on, very natural and pretty. ^^

    • Thanks! If you want it to be pinkier, you can apply more 🙂

  • Hahaha!! No pointlah the eyeshadow since I have dark circles round my eyes!! Haha!!! : D

    • Hahahaha can help you to neutralize your panda eyes!!

  • Wow…you really looks good with it!

  • I love the sparklies!!! Nice…It suites you alot. And I love Ladies First too…

    • Yes dear! I love bling bling stuff a lot and that includes makeup hehehe

  • u look good in bling bling eyes babe! 😀

  • i love the eye palette colours. gonna check them out soon. gosh..just realise its about the same colour for all my eye shadows LOL.

  • well i guess long lasting is one of the important criteria? haha

    • Absolutely! Cos we'll be out for long hours and we don't want it to melt halfway XD

  • I used to be a big fan of them and collected few of their palettes but recently their colours are repeating in new collection. I would agree each and every pallette is pretty, wearable and long lasting too but we dont need so many almost same colour palette right. Another reason stop buying from them is their management really doing a bad job handling customers got so many pending issues regarding my points redemptions which falls into deaf ears.

    • Awww dear… I hope they'll hear you and rectify the problem asap!

  • Not really into matte but can try. hehe. eyeing on one of the cosmetics at workplace.

  • great blog! hope you could drop by my blog 😀
    Not a spam comment haha 🙂
