Read about this eye shadow palette online and later found out there was a roadshow going on at MidValley. Missed the roadshow sadly but made it to the Kanebo counter at Jusco just in time to get my paws on the most popular palette from Lunasol's A/W 2011 line- Three Dimensional Eyes in 05 Deep Beige. The one I purchased was the last remaining palette in stock at that particular Kanebo counter. Lucky me :P
I've used eye shadow palettes from other Japanese brands like Kate and Lunasol's sister line, Coffret D'or, and I find the colours very sparkly and sheer- which isn't a bad thing at all :D
This palette is my first ever purchase from Lunasol and so far I've been very pleased with the shadow's texture and how versatile the colours in this palette are! Even if the shades are the darkest in the collection, much of the colours are buildable and can take you from a subtle day look to a smokey eye.
The eye shadow collection is a series of "beige" toned palettes and 05 Deep Beige's base colour is a dark beige-grey with moss green undertones (bottom left). The base colour is a light beige that looks like a faint gold when applied (top right). The base colour blends very well with the greyish-green and when blended out properly, can give the eyes more depth and definition. The highlight section (top left) consists of three sections (L to R): shimmery silver, chalky white, off-white cream. These can be blended as one highlight colour or can be used individually. I usually use them separately.
The bottom right area also consists of three shades (L to R): matte black, shimmery grey, lighter grey. The black may appear shimmery in the picture but it is actually a matte shade when applied. Again, these three shades may be combined as a single colour for lining/ shading your lower lashline and outer eye corner OR they may be used separately.
The palette looks stunning and it being from Lunasol, costs quite a sum compared to one from the average drugstore brand. Retails at RM185/ USD59 (including case) at all Kanebo counters. Have you tried any shadows from the Lunasol Fall 2011 line?
