First Look: Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes 01 Beige Beige

By far, Lunasol’s top selling eyeshadow palette is undoubtedly 01 Beige Beige from their Skin Modeling Eyes range. Skin Modeling Eyes has consistently been ranked top 10 in @cosme even though it’s a spring 2007 release. Doesn’t this show how well-liked it is?

Swatches~


Thanks to Zoe who went through so much trouble to CP this quad for me. I really appreciate it!!! ^^

Zoe surprised me with some lovely extras! :D First up is Beauty Buffet Bakery Blusher Anne & Florio No.4:


It's so girly!! I heart pink blushes ^^

She also included this super cute flower hair clip:


I love the design! I’m going to pair it with an odango haha =D

Lastly, she got me the Nature Republic MD Water Collection Moisture Coral Powder along with the 101 MD Water Collection for Moisture:


I can’t wait to try this combination out – it’s a moisturizing, purifying facial mask made from mineral-rich coral reefs. I’ve gotten very interested in this brand lately, they have a wide range of very reasonably priced goodies!

For those you who haven’t heard of Nature Republic, it’s a relatively new cosmetics/skincare brand from Korea, featuring JYJ as their spokesperson. According to the Nature Republic website, they use natural substances of the utmost quality combined with a state-of-the-art technology. Haha pretty impressive words right?

I’ll leave you guys with the newest Nature Republic advertisement:

Every photo looks so romantic and dreamy! I have seen Lunasol in Japanese mags but I haven't got to try it out!

I have only tried out a few Japanese make up products because it's really hard for me to get them!

I have tried out Majolica Majorca, Kate and Testimo! I really like Majolica Marjorca...and am really looking forward to trying more Japanese brands!

Hi Blair! Wow I feel like I haven't chatted with you in forever! Ooo Lunasol palettes just have that certain something about them don't they??? They feel so elegant and cool and makes you feel so PRETTY when you use it. I hope to see an EOTD soon!!! <3

mayaari said...

bowsnhearts said...

Hey Blair, regarding what you said on my blog, I have heard of Maquillage but I have always thought that the brand is quite expensive!

We only have Shisedo in Melbourne. Not much fun.

su-pah said...

OMG, Beige Beige, how I love it! I have recently managed to get hold of one too, so relieved. Haha!
