Review : Lunasol Blooming Eyes 03 Purple Gradation

Lunasol belongs to Kanebo's more sought-after brands and also happen to be one of my instant favourite. It all started from Lunasol's foundation powder and eye makeup base. But their eyeshadows also attract a lots of attention, although I prefer their eyeliner and mascara than their eyeshadows. But it's a matter of opinions.

Sorry for the bad picture result, I'm still trying to persuade my brother to buy me a new one. :(

 I believe only two main colours are worthwhile in Lunasol quads. In this case : the light lilac on the first row and the darker lilac on the second row. Both apply to sheer, they are not buttery soft. Actually they're quite hard. Frankly, I expected something better from a Japanese department store brand.

Below are swatches, layered at least three times to achieve the colour :

Compared with Lunasol's Lavender Coral palette from Spring 2008, I think Purple Gradation is a lot more elegant and understated. The colours are less sparkly and the overall finish is more pearly than shimmery. On the whole, Purple Gradation is more similar to Scent Form Eyes in 02 but it's marginally more vibrant due to the mild iridescence. (Scent Form Eyes in 02 is certainly the most low-key of the three.)

Results :

The packaging of this eyeshadow is not the best of what I would expected. However I'm still satisfied with the packaging. The texture of this eyeshadow is satisfactory. It's buttery smooth and the fallouts are controllable. I would say that Lunasol's eyeshadows quality are comparable to many high end Japanese brands.
