Lunasol Geminate Eyes

I finally picked up the new Lunasol Geminate Eyes palettes yesterday! As you can see from the pics, these are vibrant, shimmery colors in accordance with the precious jewels theme. The pan in the centre of the palette is a glitter shade that can be applied on top of the rest of the eyeshadows. It feels grittier than the other four eyeshadows. The other four eyeshadows have a very smooth and silky texture with a fine shimmer, like the Skin Modelling Eyes series except the Geminate Eyes shades are brighter and much more colorful. #1 Cat's Eye and #2 Alexandrite are probably the easiest to wear but personally, I prefer #4 Sapphire and #5 Ruby just because those are my kind of colors. In particular, the dark lavender shade in #4 Sapphire is a beauty. I didn't get #3 as the shades were too icy for my liking and I tend to prefer more dramatic colors.

The good news is that these are all permanent so one can take one's time collecting them. I believe they should be released in Singapore in September. Lunasol is currently also available in Hong Kong and China but I'm not aware of any online shops that sell Lunasol although one can always try Ebay. Of the 167 reviews currently on Cosme.net, the average rating is 5.6 stars out of 7, which is quite high with many reviews praising the color selection and good color payoff.

Oh! These look great. They will be out in S'pore on 31 Aug. Can't wait. I think I like Cat's eye and Ruby.

The liners are quite nice too with a very slim brush tip. The colors go well with the eyeshadow palettes but I wouldn't say they are terribly unique.

Those palettes aren't actually for me but for CPs for a few special friends *wink* I've decided to get them only after I actually use up some of my massive stash since they're not LE!

Haru said...

RMK pulled out of Singapore a few years ago but Lunasol just opened a counter in Singapore :-)
