Lunasol Three-Dimensional Eyes 03 Mysterious Beige Review, Swatch and FOTD

October 24, 2011

Lunasol is known for their neutrals, and this fall Lunasol has taken it up a notch and delivered a set of new eye shadows – the Three-Dimensional Eyes, that lets you to manipulate light and shadow more effectively to add depth to your eyes. The star feature of this collection has to be the graduation of the neutral colors, as in each palette the Highlight Color and the Shade Color consists of three different textures and levels of luster. Being an Asian who doesn’t have deep set of eyes, this concept is really intriguing.

Under the influence of my beauty pal Elaine who is a purple-holic, I went for 03 Mysterious Beige which has a purple color (the old me would have gone for the neutral beige but I decided to venture out…)

The purple leans lavender and is very similar to the purple shade in Nars Nouveau Monde, but a softer version.

A safe shimmery peachy beige, very similar to Stila Kitten.

How I wear this palette:

I firstly applied the shimmery highlight colors all over the eye lid up to the brow bone, then applied the purple shade all over the eye socket area and added the peachy beige into the socket line only. Applied the shimmery shadow colors along the lash line up to the outer v and patted the sparkly shadow over.

On the lower lash line, the sparky highlight color was added to the inner corner and the sparkly shadow color was added to the outer corner. Blend the edge using the peachy beige color.

Finished with a set of quite dramatic lashes, so if you want your eyes to appear 10 times bigger this is the style to go for! (picture can be found in this post)



Overall Look:



I hope you like my take on the soft smouldering look with the Lunasol Mysterious Beige. I also really love how Elaine wears it, check it out here.

For other colors that are available in this range, you can find them on Lunasol’s website.

What a gorgeous FOTD! Lunasol is awesome…I like your take on it….not too light-handed but yet a “light smokey” eye…well done…


Jamilla October 24, 2011 at 1:39 pm

The liner and lashes really make this look pop!


Daisy October 24, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Hi Reika,

I love it!! The purple really brightens your eyes!! Great Choice. BTW, I am thinking of venturing out into false eye lashes, I had a pair from Shu from way back but only wore it once, for starters, do you recommend the Falsies by Kiss Me Style # 2 or Dolly Wink # 1.




Reika October 25, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Hi Daisy, I much prefer Dolly Wink 01 as it has a softer band and looks less dramatic. For starters there are many other brands such as Ardell, mod lash, princess lee (my favorite) that do really beautiful natural looking lashes and are easy to wear. I know..I still owe you a lashes post, I will do one soon – I promise!


Krystal October 25, 2011 at 1:35 am

Gorgeous as always Reika! Lovely soft eye look, your FOTD is also beautiful! May I ask what blush you’re using? Your make up glows!


Reika October 25, 2011 at 2:32 am

Thank you very much Krystal! I used SUQQU MOMOZOE blush in this fotd 🙂


Lakshmi October 25, 2011 at 9:43 pm

Hey Reika! Beautiful FOTD! This is my first Lunasol palette and I chose it for the pop of purple. I am always drawn to the neutral/chcocolate/beige colors by Lunasol but decided to get something a little different instead. Regardless I really wish I still had easy access to the older Lunasol quads with the cool taupes and browns… oh well! It’s probably for the best right?;) I love this palette but did experience quite a lot of fall out especially from the bottom right trio of deep grey-browns.. maybe it’s a sign that I need some new brushes!!! I am *very patiently* plotting a Suqqu haul!!!

Those lilac shades look so pretty. I have yet to tried a lilac-brown combo, lovely look!


Julie October 28, 2011 at 8:06 pm

Hi Reika,

This is a gorgeous FOTD! I haven’t tried any Lunasol yet, but your photos of this palette are really making me want to.

You take the most amazing photos of yourself. I have gone thru your entire blog looking for tips on how you take self-portraits. Do you use the timer on the camera? a tripod? Thanks for any help you can offer. I want to start posting FOTD’s but I can’t seem to capture the makeup as clearly as you do (also you are so gorgeous that it’s probably not too hard to get a great shot) 🙂


Reika October 30, 2011 at 1:45 pm

Thank you Julie! I take my FOTDs with a DSLR camera which gives really clear and sharp pictures. Yes I also use a tripod, if I am taking pictures of myself I would also use the remote controller.


Julie October 30, 2011 at 6:26 pm


Thanks so much for responding! I have a remote for my Nikon DSLR that I haven’t played with. Thanks for the idea 🙂 Your blog is fantastic and I look forward to reading it each time I log onto Google Reader. Thanks again for the FOTD tips.


Amanda November 6, 2011 at 1:27 pm

Hi reika,

This look looks really nice on you!
Btw, what type of coloured lenses do you wear? It looks really pretty. 🙂


Reika November 8, 2011 at 8:04 am

Hi Amanda, my lenses are princess Neo 3 tone in gray.


JhoAnne Luna November 21, 2011 at 3:01 am

Reika November 23, 2011 at 11:13 am
