Spring 2010: Lunasol EX04 Shining Beige

I wasn´t particularly impressed with the spring collection "Great Nature Purification" from Lunasol. They have the tendency to release the same eyeshadow palette color schemes over and over again and most of the time those colors are on the warmer side thus unsuitable for me.

I am admittedly not a great fan of most liquid/cream eyeshadows but thought of giving a try to the new Shining Eyes eyecolors from Lunasol anyway as I was just curious to see how they´d compare to say Visée or Beauté de Kosé.

The Shining Eyes come in the typical sort of Lunasol packaging (plain, with a golden chocolate cap) with a doe-foot applicator.

The shadow really lasts long and doesn´t crease at all on me. It sets to a dry/powdery finish after about 15 seconds so there is only little time to blend and spread the color.
While the swatch of EX-04 Shining Beige on my hand makes it look like a gorgeous metallic golden beige it is a nearly transparent gold with tons of glitters on my eyes. I am not exactly sure how this happens but this is a common thing I experience when swatching something on my hand vs. applying it on my eye. Probably because I spread the color using my finger on my lids whereas swiping on a thick layer with the applicator on my hand *shrugs*.

All in all this can be safely skipped. It makes a good shadow base but it´s too glittery for my taste. Quality-wise brands like Visée are just as good!

I got mine from Adambeauty for around US$25.

Oh, I did this LOTD with the EX-04 recently. I really love this cranberry color (Lavshuca Jewel Lip N WN-1 from the Xmas/winter collection). I think they matched well!
