Review of Lumene ''Duet Mineral Eyeshadow'' in ''9 Sonnet for Autumn''!

 A while back ago I bought this mineral eyeshadow from Lumene called ''Duet Mineral Eyeshadow''. I've wanted to try a mineral eyeshadow for a while and it ended out with me buying this one. The reason why I bought just this quad, was because it has a quite descent price and I usually like this brand. I also liked the colours, they might seem more appropriate for the autumn/winter, but I normally don't have any rules when or where I use my eyeshadows during the year, if you know what I mean! :)
 So this is how ''9 Sonnet for Autumn'' looks like. In the quad the left colour seemed to be more beige, but it's more pink when you're applying it. It actually disappointed me a little bit. I do like the darker shade though. I think it's the perfect brown shade for a light-brown smokey eye. These colours DON'T give you a smokey eye-effect though, not at all.
(This is a look that I did when I used the Lumene ''Duet Mineral Eyeshadow'' quad.)

So this is the look that you'll get after applying the two shades in the quad. Looks booring, right? I'm actually really disappointed to be honest. This eyeshadow DON'T contain a lot of pigmentation at all! I had to use a lot to make it look this simple. I mean honestly, you can hardly see that I've been using any eyeshadow at all, right? I don't think you can do that anyway.. It does stay on your eyelids for a very long time though, so you don't have to worry about any touch-ups during the day at all.

I personally think.. That if you're buying a cheaper eyeshadow and it doesn't have that good pigment, you probably won't be using it that often anyway, so why not buying a more expensive eyeshadow that has more pigment, and you'll be using it a lot more(?). Next time I'll probably buy the Dior Eyeshadow Duo in ''565 Nude Look'' or the Chanel Eyeshadow in ''20 Taupe-Délicat'', I'm also thinking about buying MAC eyeshadows, their reviews are GREAT!! Do you have any other eyeshadow to recommend me that has a lot of pigment(?), I'd really appreciate it! :)

I give this product:


  1. Wow, yeah, I can barely tell your're wearing makeup in the eyes open picture. These do look like pretty colors in the palette though - but not difficult to find dupes of I would imagine.

  2. @ Meredith Jessica: Yeah, I totally agree!=) I'm not happy with this eyeshadow..
