EOTD | Lunasol Sheer Contrast Eyes in EX01 Blue Green Coral

January 9, 2009
By

Thanks to Iris’s post yesterday, I finally used the Lunasol palette that I received for my birthday last year!

The sparkle on all the colours, except for the beige, is simply an overlay. That said, the true colours are softly shimmery.

I used:

  • Lunasol Eyelid Base N from lash to brow
  • Shiseido Hydro Powder Eyeshadow in H5 Aqua Shimmer on the lid to bring out the colours
  • The teal on the outer 2/3 of the lid
  • The mint green on the inner 1/3 of the lid
  • The sparkly beige from socket to brow
  • Make Up For Ever Pearly Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in 2L (now known as Aqua Eyes in Pearly Brown 2L) to line
  • The taupe brown over the MUFE pencil

This quad is extremely easy to use; the colours are truly complementary and blend like a dream! I could also use it the same ways I do the Kesalan Patharan eyeshadow trio that I love so much.

A better view of the taupe brown applied over the MUFE Pencil on the lower lash line.

Please excuse the messy brows in the eye photos and the cross-eyed look in the face one. I am actually quite amused by my eyes being drawn together like that; I look semi-alien! No thanks to post-period bloat, my eyebags are hideous too (hence the strategically placed watermark, lol!).

And yes, those are Dariya hair pads on my head. :D There were times when I almost went out without removing them, to the exasperation of my hubs. :P

The slight glow that you see comes from BRTC Glossy Shining BB Cream SPF37. My face looks a little pale in the photo, no thanks to the sunscreen – I also look washed out because I hadn’t put on any lip colour before taking the photo – but I like how the pearly BB Cream makes my skin look in real life, when paired with Sana Maikohan Powder to reduce the frost factor. :)

    Hi Birkin!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. I think the colours show up better on Iris’s eyes and in her photos though.

    I’m going to try this palette again with a different base! :D

    PS: I’m linking your blog. I’m so glad you left a comment; you’ve reminded me to do it, hee!

    Thank you, Yumeko! :)

    Ah, they’ve come up with prettier ones. Bows and hearts, how sweet! I hope they make their way here.

    You know, I’ve actually seen two other types – one from Watsons which looks similar to the Dariya ones (and may very well be the same) and one from a China brand which looks less properly meshed. :P

    Hi Renee!

    LOL – I do look funny in this photo! I wanted my readers to see how the pads looked like. ;)

    My friend saw it, did a double take and went, ‘What’s THAT on your head?!’

    I’ve seen a photo of you! It was on your site or someone else’s before you revamped your blog…and you are stunning. You remind me of a Northern Indian-Chinese friend I have. Pan Asian looks and very model-ly! :D

    Thank you, Sesame but the appearance of the skin is mostly lighting and the BB Cream, hehe! Time to post your face too! ;)

    Renee, you are too beautiful NOT to show your face. :) Honestly, I was very taken by your visage. Plus you’re skinny too. *envious* Teehee!

    The pads are the Dariya ones that I wrote about!
