Lunasol Party Coffret 2008
This holiday set from Lunasol was undoubtedly designed to woo the modern woman. The items in the coffret are wearable, yet offer shine and sparkle to amp up your look.
Elegant and utterly feminine, it comprises:
• A clutch
• Lighting for Eyes in EX04 Soft Silver Lighting
• Geminate Liner in EX02 Soft Silver Brown
• Contrasting Cheeks N in EX01 Soft Silver Rose
• Nail Finish in EX16 Soft Silver Lighting
A foldable, metallic bronze clutch, this chic accessory is easy to use and has two main compartments – the main compartment itself that closes with a snap button and a zippered one at the back. This is so much more useful than the box – as stylishly simple as it was – from last year’s coffret.
Lighting for Eyes in EX04 Soft Silver Lighting
• A shimmery clean beige
• A shimmery rose with hints of mauve
• A velvety cool-toned deep chocolate brown
• A sparkly silver
This eyeshadow quad is an excellent apply-and-go set. I like how blendable and complementary the colours are. You can achieve a neutral or smokey eye with this; it is that versatile. A characteristic of the Lighting for Eyes series, this also contains a sparkly silver to add twinkle to your eye look. Perfect for Christmas!
Geminate Liner in EX02 Soft Silver Brown
A rich chocolate brown, this applies intensely and sets very quickly. I reckon it would last on the lids as it took me a while to wipe it off. It is not very sparkly but there are soft specks of shimmer in it.
Contrasting Cheeks N in EX01 Soft Silver Rose
A soft, satiny rose, this one seems complementary with most tones of eyeshadows. This is a very pretty blush; it is a pity there is only a small pan of it. It would be a hit as a full-sized item! I especially like its velvety texture – it was a pleasure to swatch.
Nail Finish in EX16 Soft Silver Lighting
Although this is my least favourite item of the coffret, I do concede that it is a pretty, sparkly item that acts as a foil to the (seeming) subtlety of the eyeshadows. It is somewhat glittery but gives off a metallic effect at the same time.
At S$99, this holiday coffret is value for money, considering that a regular Lunasol eyeshadow quad is priced at S$77!
