I showed you most of the items from the Lunasol Vivid Purification collection last week but it got so long and I got so carried away, I didn’t show you how the product would look when worn. So here’s a short-ish post today to show you just how the Lunasol Vivid Clear Eyes Blue Green palette looks together with the Full Glamour Liquid Lips in EX08 Shining Clear Pink icon smile Shes Got the Look: Lunasol Vivid Clear Eyes Blue Green and Full Glamour Liquid Lips EX08 Shining Clear Pink I wasn’t going to post this, but I realised from reading your comments that it isn’t easy finding swatches and commentary on brands like Lunasol in English blogs so I hope to be that bridge. I like the brand after all icon smile Shes Got the Look: Lunasol Vivid Clear Eyes Blue Green and Full Glamour Liquid Lips EX08 Shining Clear Pink

Of the 5 eyeshadow palettes released in the Vivid Clear Eyes range, the Vivid Blue Green 01 would likely be best described as “vivid”. Even then, the colour is quite light although the black in there is the saving grace and that is the key colour I use as the base for this palette that I sort of made look a bit smokier than I expected icon razz Shes Got the Look: Lunasol Vivid Clear Eyes Blue Green and Full Glamour Liquid Lips EX08 Shining Clear Pink

Here are slightly clearer swatches than before for this palette

The black is nicely pigmented but the rest do tend to the light, sheer and shimmery. Very typical of a Japanese branded shadow. I did not experience fall out with this one though. There were some earlier Lunasol palettes I absolutely disliked (Geminate I believe) that were glittery with loads of fall out. I refused to get anything from those. But from the Ocean range upwards, its been much better (Smokey Ocean is a firm favourite of mine!).

As for the Full Glamour Liquid Lips, here’s how EX08 Shining Clear Pink looks like when worn on lips. The Liquid Lips is a bit of a glossy liquid lipstick. Gloss factor is high and pigment is low but with these, I manage to achieve what I’d call “nude lips” without looking remotely washed out. I’d tried one once before and I liked it so there are now 5 more colours added.

On my quite pigmented lips, EX08 Shining Clear Pink looks like a … erm… shining clear pink icon razz Shes Got the Look: Lunasol Vivid Clear Eyes Blue Green and Full Glamour Liquid Lips EX08 Shining Clear Pink It evens out my lip colour without lightening it too much and gives it a nice shine with a bit of shimmer. You can also use it to top up a lip stain. The next colour I’m eyeing is EX11 Red Beige which looks more opaque and is a deeper shade.

And here’s how I wore it overall.

As I hope you can tell (I couldn’t get a close up of the eyes) I used the black as a base (rather like this technique here, except I used the black shadow instead of a black eyeliner – it gives a softer look). I then blended the light and deeper turquoise and applied it over the black. This makes the colour look a bit more vibrant and more blue on me. Then, I use the pale yellow as highlight on inner corners and under the brow. I also used the blue to line the lower lash.

Overall, I’d say its a soft look and spring/warm weather appropriate, when makeup is transitioning out of the deeper winter hues. Here where its practically summer all year long, its quite appropriate too, for the hot weather doesn’t encourage daily wearing of deep tones.

So that’s it. A shorter than normal post from the usually verbose me. Not used to it, I can assure you. I keep thinking there should be more to say, but then I realise I’ve said all I wanted about this collection in the Overview post so erm… that’s it!

Really pretty + professional looking, PB! ^.^

I’ve realized though, now that am more tan due to several outings under the sun in the past two weeks, even slightly pigmented pinks wash me out. >.< I think skin-colored lip-product hues are a fantasy for me.

Aww thank you Hanny! :) Pink on lips is such a tricky business. I look at them in the tube and its “Aiyo, so sweet!” then I apply it and I”m like “Aiyo! I look dead!” :P

Maybe it’s your way of applying. The blue in this palette is so beautiful, I’m heartbroken that I missed it and took Orange instead

Thanks Isabel and I’m sure you can make the orange one work too! I’d wear the orange with more of the deep brown and just a touch of orange on the outer corner so its not too orange, if you know what I mean :)

The look is so pretty and soft. Nice. Did you try the blushes? I bought the EX3 beige red blush. It also gives a soft finish.

I didn’t try these blushes yet because I have one of the pink and peach ones and I wasn’t sure if they were the same or if I have a hidden red one somewhere LOL! I’m terrible aren’t I? :P But Lunasol seriously makes some of the best blushes in the business and out of all their items, I think that’s the one that’s the most “affordable” and value for money :D Happy you like it!

Nice look! It shows some colour without being overwhelming, but I suppose that’s what Japanese eyeshadows excel at. I really need to get a palette, but my wishlist is so long! I love the Full Glamour Liquid Lips, it somehow has a cool feeling. I have 9 Fresh Pink, perfect for warm weather, or all the time really. Would like ot pick up a few more.

Wish we were seeing some semblance of spring here, instead we have snow flurries! In March in London!

Thank you Leila and you hit the nail on the head. It takes a bit of a knack to understand the concept behind the Japanese eyeshadow and their application techniques which is why I feel they are bit misunderstood in this world of pigment and more pigment LOL :) Happy to know you too like the Liquid Lips! Its pretty interesting yet does look quite pretty on doesn’t it? I can’t believe you’re still getting snow! In March! Oh dear, whatever is wrong with the weather these days?! Its been raining almost everyday here too, and that’s pretty unusual for this time of year!

The eye shadows look beautiful on you! I haven’t heard of this brand, I wonder if it’s available in the US? Thanks for the review and swatches, I’m going to go through my shadows to see if i have any dupes to replicate your look. Perfect for a night out!

Thank you Danielle :) I don’t think Lunasol is available in the USA as of now, but there maybe some online stores that sell it, as well as ebay :) Would love to see what you come up with!

Very pretty colour theme and the best part is that I love how it totally goes with the necklace you’re wearing!

From the palette I don’t think the green colour is beautiful & wearable, but I cant help from saying OMGORGEOUS (876453 times? hahaha I’ve lost count) when I look at your pictures! Ahhh,I should ditch my neutral palette because this is something that I really want to wear, fresh, colorful but not so obvious. Im too chicken to wear colorful eyeshadow especially green & blue but this is gorgeous :)

Its time to start wearing colour, Juanneth ;) I think age is catching up with me because I have stopped wearing all the strong bright colours on eyes now so I now depend on these lighter touches of colour instead and its playful yet not overdone. Hope you take this as a sign to break out of the nudes hehe … ;)

You look gorgeous in that combination, Paris! I wish I could do that for myself (still lacking in makeup as my daily routine normally exclude eye shadow).
I’m tempted by the liquid lips, they look so lovely…hmm…maybe I should just grab one :) although my collection of lippies is already a lot :P.
Gotten one of the previous collection palette & blusher in pink, love them a lot especially the blusher! (your passion for blush is contagions, Paris…hehe….anyway, I’m glad that one of my blush is hitting the pan), But, the price tag is always an ‘ouch’ on my pocket…

Thank you Jesz. Shadow does need a bit of practice but once you’ve found a method that works, it’ll work for you regardless of the colours put before you so practice! ;) Also, I’m happy to have enabled you into wearing blush hehe… Lunasol makes excellent blushes but since you already have one, I don’t think there’s any need to get another ;) There, money saved!

This is a really fresh look, Paris. And you look very pretty. I must say that I am surprised you picked the green palette though, as I thought you preferred the brownish ones. Anyway, you always surprise me (in a good way). :p

Thank you :) I actually love colour but in recent times have been gravitating towards neutrals a lot. I think its age creeping up on me and laziness because colour can sometimes take longer to get it just how you want to :)
