Sigh sigh sigh sigh sigh. Those are contented sighs.
Shiseido’s Spring offerings well and truly caught my attention (and trust me, it’s getting harder these days) and I think the new packaging (boxes and cases) and formulas are lovely. Evolve or die.
I have two pretty products to show you from the collection, the Luminizing Satin Eye Colour Trio in Punky Blues BL310 and Shimmering Rouge Lipstick in Alabaster.
Punky Blues is such a fun, gorgeous palette! I love it so much and I don’t have anything else in my collection like it…This palette is a mixture of blues and a pink but really fresh shades that are not too sheer, not too strong.
There’s a dark rich 80s denim blue, a medium toned denim blue and a baby pink which is very iridescent. I am into pinks at the moment so in my head this is a pink palette with some blue cousins!
I did an EOTD with it so this is my less than perfect application but I just love the pink and blue combination:
There’s also a very pretty violet trio which is on my hit list.
Shiseido’s new range of lipsticks is my big favourite at the moment (I already have Stiletto, a hot pink) so this shade in Alabaster in a natural alternative:
It’s a very cool toned beige, almost silvery on and will appeal to people who like nudes but with a shimmery side. It’s sheer so it won’t look to ‘deathly’. RD713 also looks delicious (it’s an unusual thing some Japanese brands do, where they take a red base but make the colour pale and quite greyish in tone – sounds strange but is really pretty).
Very pretty set which I have been wearing to work as a pick me up palette. Because the eyeshadows are still quite colourful the beige lipstick compliments it by keeping other things neutral.
The lipstick is £19.50 and the eyeshadow is £34.
