Lunasol Geminate liner 04 SP

Ever since Fuz posted about the Lunasol Geminate liners she picked up on her trip I'd been lemming the blue one because it looked so pretty on her. I'm glad I got it because its a really unique, gorgeous sparkly blue colour.

The packaging is simple but elegant - very Lunasol.

Swatched - a dark metallic blue with fine shimmer

The brush is fine and easy to apply (for a liquid liner). Still, application was far from perfect in the below EOTD as I really don't use liquid liners often.

I used it here by itself - it was a simple makeup kind of day with just mascara and liner. It would go well with cool colours, or provide a contrast with neutral eyeshadows as well.

After 8 hours of wear, still going strong. No flaking, no smudging, colour was just as intense as before!

This liner is really pretty. If it weren't for the price I would definitely want the rest of the colours in the range. The retail price is 2800yen in Japan not including tax (US$31), but it costs more online. Ichibankao.com has it listed for $39.50...


Overall:
Price: 1/5
Packaging: 5/5
Effectiveness: 4.5/5 Works well, nice alternative to traditional black liner
Would repurchase: Yes

yikes! i didn't know that they were that expensive! I wanted the deep purple one cause it looked great one someone...can;t remember who...
but the colour looks great on you^^

and matchstick, i signed up before...when they had to survey thing that would predetermine whether i would be a good candidate for getting the zune. I did...but after that, i heard nothing from them.

I got listerine packets from them...just two, but apparently they were hosting that as well. i didnt know.

did they change their system again? cause all i know is that i hated that they basically harassed us to tell our friends, and harassed the people you talked to, to fill out these lengthy surveys.

if they have changed, i would love to sign up with them. havent really heard from them since i got the zune in like...june?

ooooh so pretty! I love how bright the shimmers are, really makes your eyes pop. Do you apply UDPP before applying the liner?

What a sumptuous shade of dark blue. It realy suits you. I have a similar colour by Coffret D'or, but this looks far nicer!
