Okee dokee I know a few of you who were dead curious how the the Lunasol Geminate Eyes were!
A few weeks ago I did a Face of the Day which I failed to post so here it is:
I only used the Lunasol Geminate Eye Palette in Ruby to create the look nothing else. I think it probably came out crummy. Not dark enough. I’d have liked more of a bold look but the fault is my own as I was using a light touch as the palette is just too pretty to touch if you know what I mean
This is a fantastic palette and I highly recommend getting at least one or all of the palettes! The best part about the look is finishing it off with the middle glitter layer which really makes the eye POP!
Overall the palette is a breeze to work with. The colors are highly pigmented, they blend easily and work into the eye flawlessly. This look I created came out a bit sloppy I guess but I’d say with time, patience, and a bit of a heavier hand you can create an absolutely awesome eye look! You don’t need much else aside from liner and mascara to complete the look! I don’t normally apply liner on my upper lid during most eye looks because I just feels it’s a bit TOO much as I am already using such vibrant colors to begin with but these palettes seem to be just the right shades that you can complete a look with a bit of black liner without appearing overly done up! I didn’t use any liner in this FOTD but as I said I think a bit would have tied the look up and it wouldn’t appear “too much”!
I can’t wait to try the other palettes now! The only thing that sorta disappoints me is that Lunasol failed to provide face charts or even a video using these palettes! I’d love to have seen either or both to get some ideas of looks they envision creating with these palettes!
Other than that minor rant I’d say go get ‘em girls!
Dontcha love when celebs pimp themselves out to Japanese couture, cosmetics, and other adverts?
Now by far the best commercial I’ve had the pleasure of seeing is freaking Orlando Bloom acting all secret agent like in a hair gel commercial for Shiseido. My dear, dear friends please do have a tissue ready as drooling may occur!
Head on over to Eru’s blog Cuteness Junkie Girl to see this heart pounding, drool worthy, yummmmmmmmie commercial! I guarantee it’s worth five minutes of your time to view!
Maybe we should all write to Hollywood and beg them to make Orlando the next Bond…….Hmmmm Jeeves bring me some paper and a pen! Oh wait…isn’t it the Queen that decides who the next Bond will be? Hmmm best write to them both!
And by the way Orlando can whisper “Fiber Neo” in my ear as he strokes my arm, kisses my neck, and….oh excuse me…I was fantasizing aloud!
As you read in my prior blog one of my packages was lost for a few days! A majority of what was in the package wasn’t of much importance however these little gems were in that package and had me crying tears of joy when it finally popped back to me!
Avast Ye! Behold! This be the treasure that was lost at sea!
Beaute de Kose Star Twinkle Collection
Star Twinkle Powder
Umm..nothing to get too excited about here! Where’s the sparkle? The shimmer? The glitter? The shine? Did they make some sort of mistake? Was it lost with the package? The powder, as far as I can see and feel, has absolutely no sparkle to it at all! The twinkle has left the building. I’m seeing nothing in the way of glitter here! I’ve only swiped it very lightly but I can say confidently this may very well be a waste of money but it sure is pretty to look at isn’t it? Did I just contradict myself? Oops! This is a first impression but so far I’m a bit disappointed!
The collection isn’t a total lost because I also got the Twinkle Cream shadows and these are fantastic! Bloody brilliant! Tons of shimmer, sparkle, and glittery bits are to be had! As I said before I don’t do cream shadows! But these come with my highest recommendation! The Muse loves ‘em! She not only loves what’s inside but she’s loving the outside as well! The packaging is as sweet as candy!
Personally if you’re a collector I’d go for the entire lot but if you’re just wanting to get one or two I’d go with the cream shadows and skip the powder! The purple and peach are nice colors but the real pudding is the gold, pink, and silver colors!
A little story behind this haul!
I ordered these items about two weeks ago and they were shipped via EMS. Express shipping takes about 3-4 days to get from Asia to North America this translates as I blink and I have my items safely with me hehe!
Sadly these little goodies got lost in the mail and I was beyond upset! After much dismay and thoughts that they’d never get to me I’m happy to say I have them in my hands!
Quite a nice few goodies to be had in this haul!
Sana Shiny Mascara in Gold and Silver
Comb Glitter Mascara that encrusts your lashes with sparkles! Yum! The Muse likey sparkles!
Heroine Glitter Mascara
God I love Kiss’s Heroine cosmetic line! How freaking cute is the advert on these? This is a heavy duty glitter mascara in pink! Encrusts your lashes with tons of glitter and sparkle! Oh la la!
Sony Blackhead Oil Stick
Hey Sony isn’t only good for electronics they also create a line of cosmetics in Japan! Cool right? This handy dandy little gadget is for rubbing on your nose! It promises that with a few strokes your blackheads will be erased! It works not so bad for a cheapie gimmicky product
Pola Deep Cleaning Nose Mask, Cleansing Hot Gel, Deep Nose Wash
Deep Cleaning Nose Mask works quite like the Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil Mask. Apply a thin layer, wait till it drys, and rub off! I’ve been using it the past few days and haven’t noticed much difference in my blackheads! If possible the Sony Stick works better! Th Cleansing Hot Gel and Nose Wash I haven’t tried yet but very curious about both and somewhat worried since the Nose Mask was rubbish I have a funny feeling these will be too! Oh well!
Comments? Questions? Got these items? Tell me what you think of ‘em!
