Swatches: Lunasol Summer 2009 Palettes

[image from A Touch Of Blusher.blogspot.com]
Lunasol released two palettes [Layer Bloom Eyes if I'm not wrong, but I might be] for summer 2009, in Summer White Gradation [ex01] and Summer Pink Gradation [ex02]. They are both LE.

I'm really disappointed in these. In EX01, the two lighter shades are very shimmery, which would be OK, but they are also sheer. And the darkest shade, the dark olivey brown, is chalky. Meh.

In EX02, the most pigmented shade is the upper left, which is the palest and most shimmery! The rest are so sheer, and satin finish. Even my aunt commented on how sheer it was, and she doesn't even usually pay attention to makeup!
Each of these retail for about 57USD, but Lunasol, Lunasol, what a disappointment you have created this summer 2009.


  1. Ugh, I feel so bad for you. And look at the price tag! This pigmentation is like those 3.49$ USD Maybelline eyeshadows at CVS!

  2. Hi Y! Oh I didn't buy these, I swatched them at the counter and tried to take pictures in the sunlight, only that made the colors even more washed out. Usually Lunasol palettes are amazing, [last summers especially!] so I don't know what went wrong here!

  3. Oh that's so sad. Both palettes look so pretty...

  4. Hi Catherine! I agree. I was going to get the yellow one but after swatching, nope, not going to waste my money!

  5. I was lemming tohe 3x01, but I'm going to save my money now, thanks!
