I have taken to adding a pointless stripe of burgundy eye liner to my everyday face these days. I am not sure why I feel the need to do this other than it makes me smile and I really like the colour. The liner in question is the Lunasol
Above we have the Lunasol Geminate in 05 RB liner against the Noble Liner in Khaki Brown as a comparison.
I love this colour, it is a rich maroony ruby-ish wine colour with an even silvery shimmer. Note that all the Geminate Liners do have a bit of very fine (not as gritty as it may look in my extreme close-up) sparkle as the name would suggest.
Lunasol’s Noble Shade Liners but a sparse sprinkle of shimmer. They are more pearlescent, almost metallic and result in a richly pigmented finish. The rich gold, khaki bronze tone is wonderful.
Above are swatches of one layer of each liner. They are both very pigmented, have a speedy drying time and cling fast for well over 8 hours in my experience. I find them both very easy to apply with the flexible yet firm brush that makes the applicator all the more smooth and precise.
Now here for some more me-isms. Why do I bother with my skinny slither of an eye line?
I think less is more on me, I like the subtly of a flash of colour revealing itself in the right light, to me it’s about feeling comfortable in my makeup and this is my comfort eyeliner zone.
Both these liners were bought in Japan but I have seen them available on Mihoko Shop and Ichibankao.
