Lunasol Summer 2011 makeup collection - part II

Just want to shout it loud that I heart Lunasol :)

After few days of 'war' in my head, I cannot withstand the temptation not to pass up EX 02, simply because of the gorgeous colours and the words "Limited Edition".  Yes, I'm a sucker for limited edition stuff, you can call me a LE woman whatever :)..

EX 02 vacation ocean 4-colour eye shadow palette

From left to right:
Main colour - Clear blue
Nuance colour - rosy pink with a hint of gold undertone
High light colour - sheer white  
Shade colour - deep blue colour (mid-night blue) 
                           with noticeable glitters (great for smoky eyes)
At first glance, I thought that the colours are not wearable for every day look.  This palette proved me wrong!  It came out that the colours are lighter than what you see from the palette.  I would say that light-handed technique is required to apply the eye shadow in order to archieve the natural ocean summer look.  In overall, this eye shadow is pigmented and pearly which gives a fantastic finishing.  Please click here for Jie Jie's review on  Lunasol EX 01 - Shelly Ocean.  EX 02 is very summer ocean feel which exactly match the summer theme.  It is a palette to die for. 

Also added to Jie Jie's inventory is Lunasol blusher, the only blusher in this Summer Collection 2011^^ (phew....luckily).
EX-02 Clear Coral Pink, 10g, S$39
It is a refill pack in a plastic compact.  I did not get the case simply to minimise storage space (good excuse to save money^^).
Soft coral pink with very fine shimmers
P/s  sadly, some letters are partially gone after few swatches (arghh...)
Last but not least, also picked up this fabulous bright rosy Lunasol nail polish.
Lunasol Nail Finish EX 30 Clear Rose (S$ 23.50 - 10ml)

I prefer applying it to toe nails as the shade is too loud for finger nails.
Hope this conclude Jie Jie's collection on Lunasol Summer 2011 for now^^ 

P/s My buddy - Cutie Fishball highlighted that Lunasol has also launched Lunasol exlusive summer kit 2011 (Japan exclusive only) in early June 2011, please click here to view the whole set of EX 03 Summer Ocean.  In Jie Jie's view, the shades are warm tone and more or less a similar version of EX 01 Shelly Ocean.

Clarisonic Plus

So excited that my buddy ~ Cutie Fishball got me Clarisonic Plus from a online shop! 

The set comes with:

(a) Clarisonic Plus (with 3-speed settings for facial and body)

This cleansing brush has an unique flower-print design and purple is my favourite colour^^.  I think the design is a limited edition.

(b) A charging cradle
It is compatible with international and domestic outlets (100-240 volts AC; 50/60 Hz) with the respective country plug adaptor
It has to be charged overnight (at least 24 hours) for first time use.  A full charge (4 green lights) allows up to 30 minutes of use and about 20 minutes of use with the optional body brush head. 
(c) 3 types of brush head for face - for all skin types

Brush head with grey base - for normal skin and it is also ideal for use on the body.
Brush head in pale blue base - for delicate skin (ultra sensitive skin). It is ideal for skin sensitivities like rosacea and acne-prone skin 
Brush head in white base - for sensitive skin and ideal for body as well.
It is recommended to remove the brush head and clean it weekly with soap and warm water, and replace the brush heads every 3 to 4 months.

(d) A body brush head

Clarisonic Body Brush Head - a gentle brush that is used on body especially decollete, hands, arms, elbows and feet. It also helps to exfoliate rough or dry patches and prepare our skin to better absorb skin care products.
The benefits of the Clarisonic Body Brush Head are:
  • Noticeably softer and smoother skin
  • Firmer skin, with improved texture
  • Fewer dry patches
  • Better absorption of skin care products in areas cleansed with the Body Brush Head

 (e) Clarisonic refining skin polish for body
The Clarisonic refining skin polish has antioxidants green tea and wine extracts, jojoba beads, prickly pear, bamboo and acai fruit oil.
Benefits include:
  • gentle exfoliation
  • increased skin firmness
  • skin brightening
  • softening and soothing

(f) Philosophy one-step facial cleanser

 This cleanser helps to:
  • deep cleans pores and eliminates makeup build-up
  • hydrate and melt away makeup
It is fragrance-free with pleasant scent (more of rosewood scent) and fragrance-free.

(g) Philosophy life's a beach - shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath

It has a tropical furit scent (as you can see from the product packaging) due to pineapple and coconut extracts, very refreshing and wonderful smell.

(h) Philosophy hope in a jar

It hydrates and reduce the effect of environmental attack so as to achieve healthy-looking skin with a rosy glow.

I have already tested it for about a week and will post up my thoughts on Clarisonic Plus soon^^.
