Shiseido Integrate Be Happy with the power of Mineral Liquid Foundation Review

Shiseido-Integrate-Power-of-Mineral-Foundatio-OC30.jpg

Japanese brands seem to be experimenting more with ‘mineral’ make up and I thought it was rather groovy to see Shisedo’s Integrate brand releasing a liquid mineral foundation! They also do a powder mineral foundation and a mineral base. I’ve tried the powder foundation and found it no different to standard powder foundation in texture. Integrate’s mineral range is curiously called ‘Be happy with the power of Mineral’ (see more silly names here) which may’ve […]

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Cover Compact UV Foundation in OC30 Review!

MAQUILLAGE-MOISTURE-FORMING-FOUNDATION-.jpg

Not brand new, but relatively new is MAQUillage’s Essence Cover Compact UV Foundation SPF24. I have a soft spot for compact cream foundations because I think they’re so quick and handy to use, but the majority are pretty lame- they don’t seem to last long even on my dry skin and bunch up on oily areas. MAQUillage’s OC30 is almost the right shade for me. It’s slightly – just SLIGHTLY ashy. As long as I […]

Shiseido MAQUillage Rouge Enamel Glamour Long Lasting Lip Colour OR242, PK243 Review!

MAQUillage-Rouge-Enamel-Glamour-.jpg

Shiseido’s MAQUillage launched the Rouge Enamel Glamour a while ago. It is a long lasting lip colour, with a lip stain on one side and a gloss on the other. MAQUillage lip products generally speaking are very strong – it is one of the best products the brand makes. This dual ended long lasting type product is rarer on the Japanese market (where everything is so sheer and watery!) so I thought it would be […]

Light but rich! Shiseido Hada Senka Moisturizing Cream Lotion Review

Shiseido-Hada-Senka.jpg

Shiseido Hada Senka caught my eye even though I have no idea if it’s supposed to be a hydrating lotion toner or a moisturiser. I have been using it as a moisturiser and it comes in two formulas, normal and rich for drier complexions. The pink lidded one is rich. This lotion contains hyaluronic acid and royal jelly. It’s a runny clear liquid without colour or fragrance. It’s not as runny as water, it’s more […]

Shiseido The Makeup Mascara Base VS. Shiseido Nourishing Lash Primer Comparison

Shiseido-Mascara-base-Primer-Nourishing.jpg

I mentioned earlier today that Shiseido discontinued their highly popular and fabulous Mascara Base for a new formula, the Nourishing Lash Primer. The conclusion is that the nourishing primer does do a good job so dry your tears; we haven’t been given a dud in replacement! I’m going to do a quick comparison for other Shiseido mascara base fans. The two tubes: The older mascara base came in quite a heavy weight tube but the […]

Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base Review – The best primer on the market?

Shiseido-Nourishing-Mascara-Base-Primer.jpg

I’m not usually one for worrying when a product is discontinued; there’s always an alternative out there but I did nearly keel over when I found out that my beloved Shiseido mascara base had been replaced by a new formula; the Nourishing Mascara Base: Shiseido Mascara Base, the original, was simple the best lash primer – ever. It held curl perfectly and you could match it with the worst mascara ever and it would still […]

Lips of the Day: Shiseido Shimmering Rouge Lipstick in PK407 Stiletto

Shiseido-Spring_Summer-2011-Makeup-lipstick-Collection.jpg

Needless to say, with all the make up that I see and play with there’s not much on your average make up counter that gets me excited, but when I saw the new Shiseido spring collection, I was just coo-ing (see the colours at the end of the post!). Alas I was dragged away from the counter by Mr C, something about ‘having too many lipsticks’. Amazingly enough, he presented me one evening with the […]

Shiseido Integrate Rainbow Grade Eyes Eyeshadow Palette Limited Edition

Integrate-rainbow-grade-eyes-.jpg

I quite liked the Integrate Rainbow Grade Sparkles over the eyelid eyeshadows, so I purchased this limited edition one. It’s a pale pastel combination – white, sparkly pink, pale blue, pale yellow and cocoa brown: I love how Japanese brands change the packaging around every season! Now as for this combo – it’s not something I would usually choose as it all looks rather pale but I figured it could be quite a fresh combo…
