Lunasol Geminate Eye Palettes

A package from my angel arrived a few days ago which contained the new Lunasol Geminate Eye palettes!


The colors are amazingly pigmented, full of sparkle and shimmer, and really solid colors for the cooler months! I’ve never purchased a Lunasol palette prior to these but I can see these are quite possibly Kanebo’s best line of product and may even beat out T’estimo for quality! These are a higher end cosmetic compared to Kanebo’s other color lines and the cost of each proves that these are indeed a luxurious item to purchase!

This is only a first impression, I haven’t tried them yet as I am too busy stroking them and telling them how pretty they are BUT I can tell you they are possibly better than Visee’s Jewel Crush Eyes!

Many of you, like myself have purchased T’estimo’s newest palettes plus Visee’s Jewel Crush Eyes. These beat out both in the department of high shimmer, sparkle, and glitter! If you’re pressed for cash and in debates what you should purchase I’d go with one of these and skip the T’estimo and Visee palettes! Overall I’m mighty pleased with these and quite excited to begin creating a new look with ’em!

These have to be the best Fall collection I’ve seen this season! The colors just remind me of a cool autumn night! I was in high debate about which palettes to choose and in the end I decided on all five! And am I ever glad I did!





Cat’s Eye

The Muse was completely spoiled in this package as not only were the Lunasol palettes tucked into it but some gorgeous little pressies that the angel included for me!

Now this angel knows me a little too well and she included some much lusted after Sweet Sweets palettes for me!

Sweet Sweets is an amazingly cute and inexpensive Japanese drugstore brand! These are just too terrific for words! I’m utterly in love with ’em! They are on the sheer side but if you want to do a real simple makeup look these are perfection! I’m loving these!

And if that wasn’t enough something else was tucked into my box!

I love the little fairy drawing the eye liner on!

The Muse’s angel sure knows how to enable because Cineora is not a brand that the Muse has every heard of! The loose powder is not only adorable but perfect for tucking into my purse for touch ups! It does wonders on under eye circles! And the liner is sheer perfection! One stroke will do it! No having to go back and repeat myself this is nice and dark! The Muse is in love with Cineroa’s brand of cosmetics now πŸ˜‰

Friends are special people and when they go out of their way to do something lovely for me I can’t help but feel thankful that I am lucky enough to have my life touched by them!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hi Muse,

    Your new makeup haul looks wonderful! The Sweets Sweets and Cineora look so cute.

    Not sure if you like Guerlain, but I got a holiday sneak peek from my MA today. The holiday collection is going to feature golds, including a gold version of meteorites and gold for the lashes.

    Hi there Betsy!

    Thanks πŸ˜‰ I’m loving the Sweet Sweets bg time!

    I love Guerlain and I’m very excited about he Holiday goodies! I read about the gold meterorites on a blog somewhere and I got hyped!!!!!!!!!!

    The gold for the lashes I hadn’t heard!

    The spring/summer set was very nice but a little disappointing as it was only glamming up the package! I did want the kit but it was a bit above my budget at $75!

    but Christmas goodies sound awesome πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the comment!

    Hello! I’ve been reading your blog for I am also a big Asian cosmo lover! Buy I am a lazy poster that’s why I took ages to write to you, he he! Lunasol are indeed the best. I got some 8 or 9 shadow palettes but none of the new Fall collection! Please let us know how the Ruby one is? That’s the one I am interested in, hee-hee! If I only could resist to Japanese cosmo… Well, I would only buy Lunasol. But then again, Adam is an enabler as well! πŸ™‚
    I did not like the Visιe palettes very much, to tell you the truth. And Grande Shine is OK, but nothing comparable to Lunasol, I think. Maybe I’m wrong.
    Yesterday I received my first Jill Stuart in Glazed Garnet and it looks great too. But I did not have the courage to touch it. So pretty.
    I got some other Lunasol stuff in my collection: powder foundation, eye pencils, Water in cream foundation (the best foundation ever!) and that contouring blush thingy – so nice, so sleek, so chiiiicc… Ahn…
    Thanks for your posts! I love the Heroine manga packages btw!
    See you aound in Blogger!

    Hello my fellow japanese cosmetic lover πŸ˜‰

    It’s ok! I’m a bit of a lazy poster as well and terrible at replying to messages and such πŸ˜‰

    Oh do send me pics of your stash? I’d love to see!!!!!!!

    I’ll be sure to do a Face of the Day with the ruby one πŸ˜‰

    Gosh I have a serious problem when it comes to Japanese cosmetics lol!

    Adam Beauty you mean?

    Grande Shine was a tad bit disappointing. I was a nice lot of shadows but not as good as the previous release!

    I LOVE the new Jill Stuart palette and I’m the same way I don’t want to touch them hehehe!

    Ugh I’m so jealous of all your lunasol goodies πŸ˜‰ Do send pics! I’d love to see!

    Thanks so much for visiting and commenting!

    I adore the Heroine packaging as well! Reminds me of Japanese comic book!

    Nice to see you again Andrea and looking forward to chatting with you in the future!
