Lunasol Lighting Eyes is a collection of 5 single powder eyeshadows released together with their SS2012 makeup collection. I don't have the most 'expert' information about Lunasol products in general, only that their nail polish and base makeup are pretty impressive in terms of the texture and finish.
All the five shades in this collection are very pale natural shades - 01 and 02 are off white highlighter shades, 03 is a baby pink, 04 and 05 are slightly earthy tone neutral shades.
I would wear 04 as a all over the lids/ highlight shade, and 05 would be used on the lids to add a bit more color and some 'pop' as it contains very fine glitter bits. The texture of these Lunasol singles remind me of the soft powdery texture of Burberry eyeshadows, and the shine/ sheen factor of these eyeshadows are also very subtle, nothing too in your face.
I bought these eyeshadows from my friend Pearl (because the colors didn't show up on her skintone - she is about a shade or two darker than me) so I didn't pay full retail price for them.
Photos & Swatches
Lunasol packaging is very sleek, and I love the bronzy packaging. The single eyeshadows come with a compact mirror inside, and no applicators at all.
My camera is not picking up the fine glittery goodness of Shiny Cool Beige though.
in this quick LOTD, I swept Light Beige all over the lids (up to the brow bone) with a large fluffy brush, and then pat Shiny Cool Beige on the lids. I finished off with a very dark brown liner and put on my falsies for more definition.
