I am far not as much in love with Lunasol anymore as I used to be. I think the eyeshadow palettes have the tendency to disappoint me due to lack of pigment and/or unsuitable color combos. There are some I really love but the majority fails for me.
I always love the lipsticks and think the powder and blushes are pretty nice, too. I didn´t own any of the newer blush range called Coloring Cheeks but the new fall color 08 Medium Pink looked like a great neutral color suitable for the majority of makeup looks.
The Coloring Cheeks come as refill so it´s up to you if you want a case and brush or not. The refill costs 2500 Yen, the case 1500 Yen and the brush 1000 Yen. Quite a splurge to get the whole set but honestly I am a sucker and want the whole thing.
There is a soft glue at the bottom of the refill so you can easily stick it into the compact.
This blush consists of 3 colors from light to medium. I swirl all of them together but surely you could use the lighter shades as highlighter or lighter blush.
The Coloring Cheeks has a soft and silky texture and a beautiful pearly silk finish so it gives that sheen to the cheeks that I love so much. It´s not glitter but super finely milled shimmer, really very pretty!
The blush shows up well on me as it has a good amount of pigment and it doesn´t irritate my skin.
As so often I purchased this from Adambeauty as he had the best price for the set.
08 Medium Pink is not really a pink in my opinion, more of a coral red with a certain brightness to it. It looks natural on me and matches a good amount of my lip colors!
Overall a high quality but expensive product.
