Kanebo Lunasol 15th anniversary celebration : Revealing Kanebo Lunasol 15th Anniversary Makeup Palette and Kanebo Lunasol Modeling Beige Skin

This year marks Kanebo Lunasol 15th anniversary and in Malaysia we have a celebration in  Kampachi a Japanese restaurant. I love how the dancer moves gracefully as she paints the backdrop.

We are entertained by Japanese Koto Music Performance

Beautiful Nadia Heng as the emcee

Do you know the meaning of LUNASOL?

Lunasol – which means Moon (Luna) and Sun (Sol) in Latin– plays on the concept of light and shadow, response and motion. It expresses the many faces and inner mysteries a woman possesses. Applying makeup is a ritual that lets a woman awaken her beauty within. With innovative formulas, Lunasol breathes life into skin as the makeup melts to accentuate a flawless complexion, draping your face in light and shadow for a brilliant radiance and perfect dimension.

CEO of Kanebo Cosmetics Malaysia Mr. Masahiro Yamasaki said that “Fifteen years is truly a landmark for a brand. We are delighted to celebrate this, but also to celebrate the many years we’ve worked closely with all our friends today in bringing the brand to where it is now.”

Highlight of the event was The Kanebo Lunasol 15th Anniversary Makeup Palette was officially launched.

Kanebo Lunasol 15th Anniversary Makeup Palette consists of a special eye shadow set commemorating Kanebo Lunasol's 15th anniversary, in which six beige colours have been collected, including reproduced colours and existing popular colours.

This Kanebo Lunasol 15th Anniversary Makeup Palette consists :- 
6 Full size beige colour eyeshadows
- 1 Full size duo 15th Anniversary Cheeks in Pink Beige
- 1 Full size Micro Finish Pressed Powder N in Sheer Beige SPF15-PA+ (Includes a puff )
- 1 travel size 15th Anniversary Liquid Lips in EX01 Pink Beige
- 1 travel size of High Stylized Mascara SV in Clear Black
- 1 original gold pouch

A close up picture of Kanebo Lunasol 15th Anniversary Makeup Palette

The first sight, I spotted the famous Lunasol Eye Shadow Skin Modeling Eyes 01 Beige Beige eyeshadow colour similarity in the makeup palette. Upon asking, it's true that Beige Beige has been incorporated into the eyes makeup collection. 

Note : The pic does not justify the product as the sunlight when I was taking pic.

Personally I have tried to swatch the eyeshadow and the texture is amazing. Very fine, smooth and pigmented . And this actually reminds me why I do like Lunasol eyeshadow very much.

Tutorial on how to use Kanebo Lunasol 15th Anniversary Makeup Palette

I was told that the palette could be deported and  the golden pouch can be reused.

Kanebo Lunasol 15th Anniversary Makeup Palette is priced at RM 368. Although this does not come cheap but considering that there are 6 full size eyeshadow colour, 1 full size blusher and 1 full size press powder make up for the price. The pouch and travel size mascara & lipgloss are add on value. Besides this a limited edition palette and honestly it would be a good makeup palette to own because all the colours in the palette is suitable for daily use and the quality of the eyeshadow is great. Their blusher itself also is really pretty too. And if this is the first time coming across Lunasol, well this Kanebo Lunasol 15th Anniversary Makeup Palette is definitely a good one to own as their Beige Beige eyeshadow colours definitely would not disappoint you. 

I was thinking to get this... so last weekends when I was at the mall and went to check for this. I was told it was out of stock the moment it arrived the counter as it was reserved by many regular customers, it gave me no suprise as this is a limited edition and definitely a good one to own. However I was told there are still a few scattering around. So you might want to check Kanebo Malaysia facebook to see where they are.

Besides the makeup palette, at the event Kanebo Lunasol Modeling Beige Skin SPF 30 PA++  was also launched. This is the first Lunasol base makeup product which is inspired by Beige Beige from Skin Modelling Eyes which was released in 2007. The product is thoroughly infused with the e effects of Beige Beige that naturally conditions the skin tone and texture while bringing out three-dimensionality.

The succulent light texture made from water and oil in a one-to-one ratio creates an ultra-thin film that becomes integrated with the skin, as if wearing a fine, translucent veil. This is a whole new multi-tasking base makeup that can be used alone or also be used together with your own foundation or makeup base. I have not tried the product yet because it is not yet available in store.

Kanebo Lunasol Modeling Beige Skin SPF 30 PA++  would be available in Malaysia at RM148 in all Kanebo counters (such as in Isetan, Gardens and Parkson)

Exclusive interview with Yu Heng as the Freshel’s Ambassador in Malaysia

Last week I had an exclusive interview with Yu Heng ( 宇珩 ) who is the newly appointed Freshel's Malaysia Ambassador.  Yu Heng a very talented Malaysian songwriter & singer hailed from Bentong, Pahang is now based in Taiwan has written many songs for herself and other singers including Z-Chen, Twins, Fish Leong, and Ding Dan.

Yu Heng said that she is happy with her collaboration with Freshel Malaysia because she finds that Freshel skincare really works for her. She said that she doesn't like to complicate things and prefers to keep things simple. When it comes to beauty, the most important thing to her is hydration.

Freshel comes in 3 main ranges ; i.e Whitening, Moisture & EX-Moisture

Personally I have tried some of their skincare last year June and do think that their products are pretty simple to use and glad to find that some their products do not have fragrance or colorant.

Yu Heng's favourite product is Freshel’s time-saving skincare range which is the All-In-One Gel Moisturizing Gel, which has a five-in-one concept in a unique gel formulation that quickly penetrates in just five seconds.

Yu Heng who just got married recently said that the weather in Taiwan always changing and it affects her skin condition where she is now having combination skin type. Her cheek areas are dehydrated while her T-zone is oily. And she shared her beauty secret that in order to balance up her skin she apply an extra thick layer at night especially on her T-zone. And she felt that her skin condition has improved after using it for a few months. 

Freshel Perfect Gel Series comes in three formulas – whitening, hydrating and extra hydrating – allowing you to choose the most suitable formula for your skin. The thick & penetration formula delivers ingredients quickly. It serve as a lotion, essence, emulsion, cream and moisturizing makeup base.

Freshel Whitening Gel - RM67/80g
- consists active ingredient Vit C which will helps to control melanin generation and prevents spots & freckles

Freshel Moisture Gel - RM67/80g
- consists double collagen and hyaluronic acid which will help to moist, smooth and increase elasticity of the skin.

Freshel EX-Moisture Gel - RM82/80g
- consists of coenzyme Q-10, alpha lipoic acid, double collagen and hyaluronic acid. This is an intensive moisturizing care with an-anti aging skincare formula.

Freshel has 4 types of Mineral BB cream which all consist of skincare ingredients. It can be served as essence, emulsion, cream, sunscreen and tinted makeup base. Comes in 2 shades natural beige and medium beige.   

Freshel Mineral BB Cream (UV) - RM59/50ml
- Comes with SPF 41 PA++
-A smooth & non-sticky texture that will helps to reduce the visibility of spots.

Freshel Mineral BB Cream (Moist) - RM59/50ml
- Comes with SPF 28 PA++
- A moisturizing mineral gel cream that spreads well and is absorb quickly by the skin to create a natural and beautiful finish.

Freshel Mineral BB Cream (EX) - RM67/50g
-Comes in SPF 32 PA++
- An extra thick and moisturizing mineral BB cream that is rich in texture that covers visible skin problems. 

Freshel Mineral BB Cream (Pore Cover) - RM59/50g
- Comes in SPF 30 PA++
- Reduces visible pores and provides a smooth, non-sticky finish
- This is my favourite and I have tried it personally during the previous event. Love how my pores looked smaller and face is smoother after applying it. The shade medium beige matched my skin perfectly 

At the event also, we have a special preview of the new Kanebo Freshel CC Cream. Unlike the BB Cream, CC Cream stands for colour correction cream is a skincare cream that corrects visible skin colour tone by evening it out and reducing dullness. It's usually more watery, smoother, lighter feel compared to BB Cream. Although it can be removed with a regular face wash, I would always suggest to double cleanse the skin. 

Freshel CC Cream which comes with SPF20 PA++ has 5 functions all in one ie. essence, emulsion, cream, sunscreen and tinted makeup base. It also helps to camouflage dullness and skin colours to attain bright, natural skin without applying base makeup. It has moisturizing effect with double collagen and hyaluronic acid. 

Kanebo Freshel CC Cream is not available yet as this product would be only be officially launched in May 2014.

She shared that besides using Freshel daily, she usually warmed up the products with her palm before she massage into the skin for better absorption. 

During the interview, Yu Heng told us that she is coming back to Malaysia this May for Freshel's event and I guess is the Freshel CC Cream launch.
