Lunasol Base Makeup

I'm almost done tweaking the new layout on another blog, but I can't seem to get the right bar in the proper position, you can see what I'm talking about if you go to my test blog in my profile. Gaahh!!
I decided to make a video...it took me like 4 tries to get it right, even then, I missed a lot of things I wanted to say haha.



When I said the beige ocher neutral thing, I meant that I'm in the ocher shade which is considered a neutral tone and not the yellow tone (beige). I don't know why Lunasol labels their yellow tones with a YO instead of the usual BE. I sounded so confused haha.
And thankq again to Yumeko for the lovely brush roll and swap!

I know it was a bit early to do a review of the foundation, but I really like it!!! I wore it for at least 8 hours today and it still looked fresh! Aside from the usual t-zone areas that I have to blot, the rest of my face looked like I just put on the foundation. I didn't notice any dryness or a lot of excess oil on my cheeks either.

The 01 primer/base is the "moisture" formula. I read this from Lotus Palace's review on MUA so that's how I decided to get the 01 haha. I don't think the green tint really helps reduce the redness at all, or even out anything for that matter. I think I still would have chosen this whether I read her review or not because green is supposed to help reduce redness on the cheeks. Since this is the moisture formula, I think it made a difference on my cheeks. I didn't get a dry spot at all today. Sometimes when I use the P&J foundation, my cheeks get a tiny bit dry.
I think the foundation (OC03) gives me a medium coverage and it's a perfect match. I still use a light hand with this foundation to keep it natural looking so I use my fingers to blend/pat it on.
I like how it's got a milky sort of texture, it feels really light weight and it glides on very smoothly and evenly.
The primer has SPF22 PA++ and the foundation has SPF17 PA++. Both have 25mL in them.
I originally wanted to get Maquillage's new primer and foundation, but I got Lunasol instead because they had the set.


The SA tried the YO03 and OC03 on my cheeks. She applied a lot of it too! Under the white light, you notice that one cheek was yellow, so I chose OC03 as my best match. Thank goodness the SA sat me down to try both shades because I was about to walk off with the YO03 shade.
For those of you who didn't watch the video, this is what the set came with: Nuance Change Foundation 01 Natural Glow, Under Eyes Base, Morning Wakening Massage, Night Refining Cream and Micro Finish Powder N 02 Natural Beige. These are pretty big considering how they're supposed to be samples.

I think I might end up liking this more than the P&J Light Cream Foundation haha. I sometimes wonder if I even needed this foundation. I know it'll take me forever to finish the P&J one but something inside of me told me to get this set. So that completes my Lunasol Anniversary promo items!! hehe.
I need to go on a major makeup diet from now until my trip to Japan, this set cost 110,000won.
I'm starting to hate the Lunasol blush that came with the 10th Anniversary palette. It's so difficult to blend evenly because it's so pigmented and sometimes I end up with uneven cheeks >_<
For the crafty ladies, I secretly took a picture of these crochet books. I wanted to take more pictures of the Rilakkuma book but the pesky SAs were around.



Oh gosh, it's already 1:40am and I'm not asleep yet.
Earlier today, I finally mailed out my mega box of winter clothes. It was either 80,000won to ship it by air, or 32,000won to ship it by sea. I chose sea and it's gonna take 2-3 months to get to Canada..blah! And tonight I saw a really drunk girl. She was drunk to the point where she couldn't stand up and people had to hold her. I think she wasn't even wearing her shoes anymore hahaha. So unattractive.

Ooh, the foundation looks so cool! I'm lemming the water cream one that Fuz has been recommending to everyone... All of my foundations/bb cream don't work for me! Also I can't tell whether I'm yellow/pink tone because I think I have both. When I go to Japan maybe I'll pick up some Lunasol base makeup, thanks for the review!

Blair said...

I like the new layout!!!

I was more focused on the spring/summer 2009 primers. The Lunasol primer that you bought was released last year, therefore I didn't include it. It has a rating of 3.8stars.

I'm glad you got it since it works well on you, plus it came with lotsa other goodies + a tote!

Now I'm super curious about Lunasol's base makeup...is this lighter in feel than the P&J cream one? How does the coverage compare?
