Lunasol will release its summer 2011 makeup collection in Japan on May 13th. In recent years, along with other items, Lunasol releases two eyeshadow palettes for summer in keeping with the spring makeup theme. (For spring 2011, the theme is Aquatic Purification.) Here is the first look at the two palettes, which I was really looking forward to.

The new items include:

– Ocean Scene Eyes (2 new variations)
– Eye Pencil N (2 shades)
– Full Glamour Liquid Lips (4 new shades)
– Coloring Cheeks (1 new variation)
– Nail Finish (4 new shades)
– Pore Covering Base

All the items in this collection are limited editions.

After the release of the five Ocean Scene Eyes palettes for spring 2011, I thought I would wait for the summer releases and then decide whether I would pick up any of them. I was hoping that there would be a somewhat similar palette to Nature Color Eyes in EX-01 Summer Nature Blue from summer 2010.  (I like the combination of soft beige and dark blue.) There won’t be one this time, but, at the moment, I am interested in the neutral-toned one since the colors don’t seem to have an orange or a bronze tone.

Have a look at the images of the collection items here and here. It seems that the two limited-edition Ocean Scene Eyes palettes (EX01 Shelly Ocean & EX02 Vacation Ocean (information from Cosme.Net)) will feature unique design details. They greatly increase the collectibility of the palettes since almost all of Lunasol’s eyeshadow palette cases since the packaging revamp in 2003 are identical.

Also (regarding my earlier speculation), it appears that the neutral-toned EX01 Shelly Ocean will have one orange/peach-toned shade.

Lunasol’s official website has been updated with information on the collection. Also, has photos of the collection items, including a close-up of the limited-edition Ocean Scene Eyes case.

I’m loving the look of the blue palette and the blush! Thanks for the heads up PJ! I’ll keep an eye out for this in store :D

Hi Paris,

You are very welcome! :)

I like the blusher as well. The shades look very soft and wearable! (Too bad that the letter prints will probably wear off……) I am particularly looking forward to seeing more images of the neutral-toned palette.

Thank you for your comment again! :)

So much to buy, so little money :)
Thanks PJ for sharing, I try to buy a couple of things every month from Lunasol because I love their products! :)

Hi The Lavender Ninja,

You are very welcome. Lunasol is one of my favorite beauty brands (not just one of my favorite Japanese beauty brands), and the number of my Lunasol items is very slowly increasing as well. Enjoy all your Lunasol goodies! :)

Thank you for stopping by again! :)

I’m just wondering what eyeshadow palettes would you recommend for someone who will be trying out lunasol products for the first time. Thanks


PJ Thursday, October 27, 2011

Hi Jhoanne,

If you would like to test the quality of Lunasol’s eyeshadows but want to be on the safe side with colors, then the latest Three-Dimensional Eyes palettes might be worth considering. Most of the shades are neutral-toned and should be generally wearable, and I have read that the texture is very smooth and silky. (Note that they can be quite shimmery.) But Lunasol’s eyeshadows are generally of very high quality so you can certainly go for any color combination from other series that appeals to you.

Hope it helps, and thank you for stopping by again! :)
