Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow

Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow, not to be confused with the W Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow released with the Lunasol 15th Anniversary Summer 2014 Collection that I recently reviewed, is a line of single color shades designed to create a natural eye look.

I’m really all about simple, natural eye looks lately! Bobbi Brown Sand Dune is one of my favorite ways to capture the natural look but right now I’m really loving these Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow singles just as much!

Lunasol Lighting Eyes

I picked up two of the five shades that Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow was available in. Both shades are light, buttery shades of beige. These shades kinda remind me of NARS Night Star as they have a gentle sparkle to them that brightens eyes up and blurs the appearance of dark circles.

Shiny Cool Beige actually has the most shimmer where as the other shade, Light Beige, is more of a semi-matte finish. Both shades have a very silky, smooth texture with an easy to apply formula that blends super simply on lids with a little bit of fall out on Shiny Beige due to the sparkle but nothing too noticeable. The texture are silky but they also have a butteriness to them that makes for a very pleasant application and wear. The colors are very subtle but noticeable enough that they brighten up eyes and add a very natural look to them! This is particularly nice shades to use if you’re going a bit more dramatic with your liquid eyeliner.

You can, of course, also use them to highlight with but I found the real job applying them as a color wash all over my lid!

Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow are one of those essential eyeshadows that everyone should have in their arsenal for quick, easy, elegant eye looks. I must admit I hate the near $30 price tag per a single small shadow but I’d buy them again in a heart beat! They are just stunning!

You can grab them from Gooddealer.com or Adambeauty.com.
