Disclosure: I was sent makeup from Lune + Aster Bluemercury.
Ever feel overwhelmed with makeup? Like you don’t have time for the whole makeup process?
Well, the makeup line Lune + Aster was created for women who wanted products that were easy to apply and took the guesswork out of makeup application. Lune + Aster (the creation of Marla Malcom Beck, founder of Bluemercury) has developed an awesome line of makeup products that are great for those of us that don’t have the time or the patience for a big makeup routine. This makeup line has everything you need to look polished and still get out the door in minutes.
My favorite part about the products are the ingredients! All Lune + Aster products, from lip gloss to voluminous mascara is paraben and phthalate free, dermatologist-tested and not tested on animals. The line’s Primers, BB Cream, Lip Gloss and Mascara are also gluten-free and vegan. Being gluten free myself, means gluten free in my facial care items – and this stuff fits the bill!
Lune + Aster Midnight Sun Eyeshadow Palette
An eye defining palette with three matte shades and three shimmer shades – appropriate for wear day or night. Paraben, Phthalate, Gluten free and Vegan. Dermatologist tested, but not tested on animals.
My take: This is a perfect everyday palette! The colors are neutral and go with everything! When I want a little something extra, I use the shimmer shades. Otherwise, the matte shades are my daily choice. These colors are professional and easy for applying in minutes.
Price: $54, Available at Bluemercury stores nationwide and bluemercury.com
Lune + Aster RealGlow Under-Eye Brightener
A hybrid treatment and concealer, it helps to hide dark circles, diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and firm and protect delicate skin under the eye. Formulated with apple extract that contains essential fatty acids to hydrate skin, and vitamin E, which soothes and neutralizes free radical damage. Paraben, Phthalate and Gluten free. Dermatologist tested, but not tested on animals.
My take: Dark circles have been creeping up on me over the past few years. Luckily, I can take charge of them with this under-eye brightener. It makes my blue/black circles dissapear, and doesn’t produce a weird yellow tint (like some others I’ve tried in the past.) Thank goodness for this product – now I don’t look like a walking zombie all the time! It is so smooth and just a couple dots under each eye gets the job done!

Lune + Aster Eyeliner Palette
A palette with four essential fall colors – black, navy, plum and brown – appropriate for wear day or night. Paraben, Phthalate, Gluten free and Vegan. Dermatologist tested, but not tested on animals.
My take: My first time using an eyeliner palette and I am loving it! Applied with a flat or point eyeliner brush gives a variety of looks. It is so easy to do a clean, crisp line or a smokey and sexy look. The softer or the darker application can be determined whether or not I wet my brush first. I am so amazed how this works! It’s so uniquely different from an eyeliner pencil!
