Drape Eyes with Translucent Sparkle…Lunasol Geminate Eyes

April 7, 2019

Lunasol’s Spring 2019 collection is mostly composed of muted washes of beige [see here], but there are three colorful quint palettes to spark joy.  The popular Lunasol Geminate Eyes has been refreshed this season in celebration of the brand’s 20th anniversary this year.

Lunasol Geminate Eyes N for 20th anniversary

Lunasol Geminate Eyes N features 5 eyeshadow shades, each bearing a satin finish with varying degree of micro shimmers.  Each palette holds a glitter shade designed to complement the shades for a translucent gem-like sparkle.  For a start, Lunasol has reworked 2 of the original favorites – Cat’s Eye and Ruby.

Lunasol Geminate Eyes CE01 Cat's Eyes

Geminate Eyes N CE01 Cat’s Eye is a warm-toned palette composed of golds and bronzes.  This is an almost metallic palette that creates beautiful dramatic eye looks easily.  Of the 3 palettes, Cat’s Eye feels the softest and smoothest to the touch, rich and almost creamy.  Here are the swatches:

On the other end of the spectrum is a cool-toned palette featuring blooming pinks.

Lunasol Geminate Eyes RB05 Ruby

Lunasol Geminate Eyes N RB05 Ruby has a somewhat different texture than Cat’s Eye, feeling drier and much less pigmented than it appears.  I swatched it from top to bottom on my arm below for your reference:

Lunasol Geminate Eyes EX01 Amethyst

There is a very pretty limited edition Lunasol Geminate Eyes N EX01 Amethyst for the collectors out there.  This is a lovely purple-themed palette which reminds me of Tom Ford Lavender Lust [reviewed here].  Here are the swatches in clockwise direction:

Here is a full makeup look featuring all Lunasol spring 2019 pieces, in particular, Geminate Eyes N EX01 Amethyst on the eyes.  This is a lovely easy one to wear for spring, and particularly recommended for those of you with a fair and cool-toned complexion!

These Lunasol Geminate Eyes N palettes are fun to play with, though personally I prefer the texture and pigmentation of some of Lunasol’s previous releases [such as this].  The entire spring collection are already out in counters, have you seen it yet?
