I finally finished my lookbook for the Sailor Moon Pretty Guardian Palette!! I really enjoyed playing around with this palette, the shades are so pretty! Let me show you what looks I created with this gorgeous palette and let me know which look(s) is/are your favorite. 🙂
Here is the palette to refresh your memory:
Look #1: Pink Moonflower
I know these photos aren’t the best and they really don’t do the look any justice at all, but I really loved the way it turned out. I’m usually not super thrilled about the first look I do with a new palette, but this one is pretty and I’m glad a lot of you liked it as well.
Shades Used: Twilight Flash, Moon Castle, Tuxedo Rose, Silver Crystal, and Silver Millennium | Cat’s Eye Blush & Moon Tiara Ultra Glossy Lip
The pink shade Tuxedo Rose is truly beautiful and I love how bright and vibrant it is. I initially meant to do a neutral/subtle kind of look but I was not expecting just how pigmented and bright the shades were, so that definitely took me by surprise. However, I’m okay with that. Feel free to watch me create this look here.

Look #2: Luna Rosa
Luna is such a gorgeous iridescent lilac/lavender kind of shade, and I just immediately wanted to create a “purpley-rose” kind of look as soon as I could. I named this look Luna Rose, literally ‘Pink Moon‘, because it’s not fully purple? Miracle Romance is not quite purple, it pulls a bit pinky/rosey.
Shades Used: Twilight Flash, Miracle Romance, Luna | Cat’s Eye Blush & NYX SMLC in Milan & Buxom Top Coat Plumping Lip Polish in Iris
I’m honestly in love with this look too. I was not able to find a lip cocktail that matched closely to the eyes but I think I got close enough. Maybe I’ll try a different cocktail later.

Look #3: Daylight Love
“Fighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight.”
The whole bottom row is full of pretty shades and it was obvious to me by just looking at the palette that I wanted to use them all in a look. This was the second time I did this look, only because initially I wanted to use white eyeliner but totally messed up so I waited until the next day to try again.
Shades Used: Justice, Tuxedo Rose, Miracle Romance, Twilight Flash, Silver Millennium | Cat’s Eye Blush & Usagi Ultra Blotted Lip & Moon Tiara Ultra Glossy Lip
I also wasn’t a huge fan of the Ultra Blotted Lip, as pretty as the shade is, but I didn’t like how it was wearing on me. It applied a bit patchy, and if I added too much it made my lips dry? Or perhaps I’m not hydrated enough? I don’t know. I’m still trying to work this out, so I changed the lip to the Ultra Glossy Lip below.
Is this look better with:
Usagi Ultra Blotted Lip; or
Moon Tiara Ultra Glossy Lip??

Look #4: Gloaming
I wanted to use the bottom row again but more blended onto one another and this is what I created. Another sunset look. The shades look so pretty like this, I’m so wowed!
Shades Used: Justice, Tuxedo Rose, Love, Moon Castle, Silver Crystal, Luna
Cat’s Eye Blush & Usagi Ultra Blotted Lip
I used a lot of the shades in this look; I used Silver Crystal on the lid and a little bit of Luna on the inner corner and those shades made the entire look pop more. Again, I wasn’t a fan of the Ultra Blotted Lip. As you can see in the photo below it looks a bit uneven on my top lip so it was hard to get an even layer of it. Maybe I’m not applying it correctly. If anyone has tips, please let me know.

Look #5: Day Spring
The more subtle and simplest look in this lookbook. I really wanted to try and create a look like this to see if it was possible with a bright palette. I initially meant to do a look like this one first but dipped into a bright shade instead lol.
Shades Used: Shining Moon, Moon Castle, Twilight Flash, Mare Serenitatis
Cat’s Eye Blush & Moon Tiara Ultra Glossy Lip
I ended up using the glitter, Mare Serenitatis, but had to use a glitter primer for it adhere onto my lid. I do want to point out that added it lightly* on purpose. I think if I would have packed it on more, it would have been too much for such a simple look.
I don’t know if anyone noticed but I hardly used falsies for this palette. I wanted the colors to shine on their own and frankly I really am starting to like the look with only mascara. I just need to find the perfect mascara for me. Anyway, in the upcoming weeks I will be posting reviews of the products I bought from this collection. Cannot wait!!
Which look is your favorite?
