Product Comparison : Lunasol Lighting For Eyes 04 Neutral vs. Lighting For Eyes 05 Khaki

I've been asked to do a comparison post of Lunasol Lighting For Eyes 04 Neutral and Lighting For Eyes 05 Khaki by the lovely Blair. So, here we go!

First off, I have to say that I really can't decide which one I love more, since both are the perfect to-go palettes for a natural everyday look.

All shades of both palettes are on the cool side, yet I feel that the shades in 05 Khaki are even more cool-toned compared to 04 Neutral.

All shadows apply smoothly with lots of shimmer that are pretty fine (except of the 4th color of each palette, which is a super glittery shadow). The pigmentation is medium, but you can definitely achieve more opaqueness by adding more color.

Lunasol Lighting For Eyes ~ 04 Neutral

The shades are:
1) pale golden beige 2) medium taupe brown 3) rich chocolate brown 4) silvery taupe

04 Neutral is the palette to go for, if you are looking for a neutral or a cool-toned brown palette. I'm sure that it flatters most Asian skintones.

Lunasol Lighting For Eyes ~ 05 Khaki

The shades are:
1) minty white 2) light khaki with golden shimmer 3) deep khaki green 4) pale gold

05 Khaki is the prettiest khaki green palette that I've ever seen. However, it might look a bit muddy on some people with darker skintones.

Finally, if you have to decide between these two, I'd say you are absolutely on the safe side with 04 Neutral. I hope this post was helpful! ;)

Stay pretty!
Stay Ohh... pretty!

oh nice palettes. i'm going to get the neutral maybe someday. what's stopping me is that Lighting For Eyes tend to fall out without a good primer but the color is really great for everyday look
