Lunasol is Kanebo's high-end makeup brand only available in a few Asian countries. I didn't use to be a big fan of most of their stuff but I found a few truly great items including their lipstick!
I would have never gotten this lipstick if I didn't find it for about 1/3 cheaper on ebay (incl. shipping). While I pay 3150 Yen for a Maquillage lipstick because I know they're good I'd probably not have paid the same for Lunasol since the brand didn't perform as well as it should in my experience (especially for the high pricetags!). But when I saw this gorgeous color on ebay I had to snatch it up.
The lipstick comes in a square shaped darker golden tube, not the packaging that really appeals to me usually but it's elegant and sophisticated.
The texture of the lipstick is amazing! It's creamy and moisturizing but doesn't vanish quickly. In fact it stays on really long on me despite speaking and drinking a lot.
It's not fragranced which is a plus in my opinion!
When it's new it comes covered in a light spraying of shimmer but it dissappears as soon as you touch the surface.
I have 4 colors so far:
25 Beige Pink: A shimmery medium pigmented nude pink beige shade, gorgeous and flattering! It's one of those "perfect" lipcolors out there!
26 Beige Aqua: Very light nude beige. Comes with a coating of glitter but the lipstick is more satin on me, no shimmer I can really see.
29 Diamond: This is a nude beige with some green micro-glitters. It's quite pale but I really like it!
30 Sapphire: A medium soft pink It turns a bit paler on my lips than in the tube.
I am a cool-toned PPP/NW15 with brown eyes
