Lunasol X'mas coffret, Chanel glossimers

Sorry for the absence! I haven't been around much lately...mostly because of other complications. Thanks for voting on the poll, I appreciate the feedback because its good for me to know what you like reading. From the current results, it looks like there'll be more reviews coming up. Of course, if you'd like to see something else just drop me a line in the comments or email me :)

For today I'm going to post another haul from December, haha. I ordered the Lunasol X'mas coffret from Facial-Shop HK after seeing Lotus Palace's review on it. Also got some Chanel glossimers to go with it since I'd never tried Chanel's glosses before. Its nice how Facial-Shop will give a 5% discount if you buy 3 items (no matter how much each item costs).

Here is the set - it contains a gorgeous bronzy clutch with the following items:

Soft Silver Lightning EX04 eyeshadow palette
Soft Silver Brown Geminate Liner in EX02
Soft Silver Rose EX01 blush
glitter nailpolish


The eyeshadow palette and nailpolish are full size, while the liner and blush are smaller versions.




Chanel glossimers:



L-R: Soft Silver Rose blush on the left, followed by the 4 shades in the eyeshadow palette.


The blush is very light, its more of a highlighter. I used it with a duo fibre brush the first few times and it barely shows up. I'll have to try it with a traditional blush brush and see if it picks up the colour better.

The eyeshadow colours are typical Lunasol - soft understated colour with fine shimmer. The bottom right shade has larger glitters though without much payoff. The diagram on the box shows its meant to be layered over the other colours in the center of the eyelid for a shimmering effect.

L-R: Soft Silver Brown liner, Chanel Galactic, Chanel Amberlight


The liner, as with my other blue Geminate liner is gorgeous. Its a shiny brown colour with shimmer. As for the glossimers, I'm not too fond of Amberlight...its a bit too warm for my taste. I like Galactic a lot though, it has a faint pink opalescence, and contains multicoloured fine shimmers.

Look using some of the above products:

(not including the face products and mascara)

Shiseido Hydro Powder in Bare Pink as the base
Pink shade from palette all over lid
Outer 1/2 of lid with the dark brown shade
White highlight under the brow
Finished off with the geminate liner and Lancome Oscillation mascara


Forgive the shine - I only got the chance to take these pictures after a few hours of wear.

Love this shade of brown :)


See how the blush doesn't show up at all in the photo? I'll probably just use this as a highlighter in the future.

With flash - brings out the multicoloured shimmer

The liner is gorgeous, now you don't need the brown Noble Shade Liner, haha.

I find the blush shows up well after a few layers using a flat blush brush...

It is really rich, but it gets absorbed rather quickly. It doesn't smell like anything...Wait, it smells a TINY bit like honey. It really is great.

Happy new year to you too! :D Love the pink glossimer! BTW, how do you like Bare Pink? It was recommended to me as an eyeshadow to wear on the days I'm feeling lazy but I'm not quite sure about it yet. Haven't really tried anything from Shiseido.
