Lunasol Geminate Eyes, just like Skin Modelling Eyes in Beige Beige, is another one of their classics with a never ending popularity. Unlike its work-friendly and subtly enhancing satin cousin Beige Beige, Geminate Eyes is all about the bling.
Since it's debut in 2011, only two shades (Cat Eyes and Ruby) remain from original line up (which consists of the two mentioned plus Alexandrite, Diamond and Sapphire). Today, I will show you the warm toned Cat Eyes.
The top two shades are golden yellow and a coppery orange. Both clear and sparkly but the coppery shade has a brushed metallic finish.
The bottom contains a brownish warm red and a satin medium brown. The palette is topped by a clear green sparkly top wash to imitate the chatoyancy (which just sounds so much cooler than cat's eye effect).
The whole palette is very sparkly (which I don't mind) and very warm. I don't mind warm colors most of the time but sometimes, those kind of shade with some neutral base (but not too neutral) and turn downright yellow on me. This is what happens with Cat Eyes. It's a little warm for me in the middle of summer (and during winter it's just not wearable at all).
I think I just mixed everthing together and try not to extent it too far away from the crease. I do love the clear glossy finish it maintains, while giving a lot of color intensity. The color and gloss really brightens up the eyes and gives a sharp cat lik
(Not crying here, I had a bad case of eye strain right after work). The texture of Cat Eyes is a little dry (thanks to all the glitters) but there wasn't too crazy of fall out as it was being blended. I prefer not wearing any primer for my eyeshadow, mainly to preserve the clear glossy finish. This one is hopeless against the summer heat/all the sweating that was going on.
I still love it though.
