Kanebo Lunasol Contrasting W Eyeliner (01 Brown Red)

Posted on: April 23, 2010

This is one of the Lunasol’s 2009 Fall/Winter Stardust Purification release. I always happy with Japanese drugstore makeup such as those under Japan cosmetic giants (Shiseido, Kose, Kanebo, etc), sharing similar quality at fraction of cost. Having said that, undeniably the premium line is still superior in both classic elegant packaging and perhaps their finer quality.



How glamorous this Contrasting W Eyeliner … I meant the packaging. It is double-tipped, solid dark shade is eyeliner and shinning side is use for lower eye rim. I’ve wanted purple eyeliner for long time, this Brown red is absolutely pretty for me. I tested both 01 and 04, even the beauty consultant commented 01 looked more natural when she actually suggested 04 originally.  









This is water-resistant. When the eyeliner settled on skin within a minute, I tried to rub the stain gently with water for few times, they just stay on nicely without smearing. Adversely, they are not oil-resistant.



 \\\ Comparison: Lunasol, SkinFood, Chanel ///




Face: Lunasol undereye base;

Round face contour: SkinFood eyeliner;

Smiling eyes: Chanel eyeliner;

Smiling mouth: Lunasol eyeliner;

Blush: Kose EP eye shadow BR311


Rinse the makeup under tepid water for 10 seconds

After rubbing off vigorously…


With powdery eye shadow, this Lunasol eyeliner stays on nicely without obvious smudgy at the end of the day. Eventhough it did a little bit when my skin became oilier, the smudgy actually quite unnoticeable. That is why I love about brown, brown-red eyeliners because they do not appear dirty on skin in case they smudge. I tried black eyeliner before, I looked like an assassin and once it smudged, that really “Halloween”, people will wonder why I’m still moving around in not-Aug&Oct months. (“w)

sometimes I use the shimmer-end for middle upper eye rim, so the there is a shimmer on the spot


Furthermore, the texture is soft, drawn on easily. It never hurt my eye and the pigmentation is also buildable.



Make sure the cap is closed tightly if putting it inside makeup pouch. That was once I didn’t, the lead broken and it scribbled everything inside the pouch. In the end I had to clean up the mess one by one, including the pouch. Got the lead sharpen as well.



I guess those pictures have said enough. As a whole, the elegant packaging and its quality make me happy to spend THB950/1.3g for it.


Rating: …)))     Excellent. Willing to buy again.
