For practical reason, I picked up EX 01 - Shelly Ocean.^^
|Each shadow has letters printed on it. However, these letters are so 'fragile' and fade away easily.|
The case has LUNASOL logo over it, very uniquely Lunasol.
|Limited edition - EX01 Shelly Ocean (7g) at S$77 |
Japan retail price (printed on the box) is Yen 5,000 which is almost equivalent to S$77 (inclusive of 7% GST)^^
|The how-to-use instruction is enclosed in the box|
From left to right:
Main colour - Light beige
Nuance colour - beige with gold undertone
High light colour - sheer beige
Shade colour - deep beige with noticeable glitters
(great for smoky eyes)
I really amazed by the pigmentation of the eye shadows when I swatched it. It is a warm tone with generous amount of shimmers (except for deep beige which has noticeable glitters). The texture of the eye shadow is surprisingly silky and smooth which I absolutely love! The colours also show up instantly with just one swatch (especially deep beige). Either use dry or wet, it can be applied alone or together with eye shadow to create the perfect deeply-nuanced eyes. I do notice that this Summer collection has less shimmery than their past collections, that's why I love about this collection.
If you prefer a natural and fresh look, this palette is definitely for you. It is a must-have Summer essentials for sure!!
P/s I'm still contemplating whether to get EX02 vacation ocean, should I or shouldn't I?
