Releases like this do make me think that time flies. It doesn’t seem that long ago when Lunasol celebrated its 10th anniversary, and the celebratory collection at the time featured a makeup palette with the brand’s best-selling eyeshadow palette, Skin Modeling Eyes in 01 Beige Beige. In 2014, the brand reaches another milestone and will release its 15th anniversary makeup collection in Japan on February 11th. The collection includes:

.

Lunasol’s summer 2013 makeup collection has a similar color palette to those of many of the brand’s previous summer collections, as it features a neutral-toned eyeshadow palette and a blue-toned one. This time, the Vivid Clear Eyes in EX02 Colorful Collection includes a fresh pink and a lake green. This is certainly one of the most vibrantly colorful eyeshadow palettes from Lunasol in recent seasons.

Kanebo Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes 01 Beige Beige Spring 2007 Makeup 1

.

If you are a Lunasol fan, you might remember that spring 2007 was a big season for the brand. Its fall 2006 Scent Purification collection, featuring the beautiful Scent Form Eyes palettes, was very well-received, but it is the spring 2007 collection that elevated the brand to the very top of Japanese cosmetics.

.

I like the idea behind the new Blend Creation Eye & Cheek palettes from Esprique’s spring 2013 makeup collection. The middle two shades in each variation are used for both the eyes and the cheeks, and the shades for the eyes and for the cheeks can be used separately or mixed together. All the variations look quite easy to wear, and D-1 looks the most appealing to me.
