When I learnt that Lunasol was being heavily discounted at a fair organised by a local departmental store recently, my interest was immediately piqued – for a luxe brand that is found only at one counter in Singapore (the Kanebo counter at Takashimaya), this was an incredible piece of beauty bargain news.
I emerged with several Lunasol items:
- Geminate Liner in Shining Gold and Light Green (S$19 each)
- Intellectual Eyes in Rose Variation and Monotone Variation (S$35 each)
- Sheer Contrast Eyes in Green Coral and Orange Coral (S$35 each)
- Skin Modeling Eyes in Beige Aqua (S$35)
I also bought a T’estimo Eye Base, as well as a few Coffret D’Or items that were on sale, including the 2008 Party Makeup Collection 02 Noble Dressy (S$28), a diamante-studded holiday palette with wearable neutral colours.
I’m especially thrilled that Green Coral was on sale; it’s been a palette I’ve been eyeing for a while now but never took the plunge (I adore the green but am not a fan of the bronze).
With the prices slashed, it was an excellent time to purchase these sweet shadows! I was delirious with joy at the palette price – they usually cost S$77, so S$35 is an awesome price to pay for these high-quality shadow gems.
