Shiseido eye shadow singles are winning over my heart, but I'm trying not to fall into it with the drunken stupor of a sailor on shore leave. I had purchased two eye shadows, you know, just to try it and see how I like it. Yup, I like it. I mean, uh-oh, I really like it. Serpent was my other purchase, and today I show you this beautiful neutral, Alchemy.
Alchemy has the same almost frail, soft texture of Serpent and goes on with the luminizing finish indicated by the product name. While certainly not frost, this is really a shimmer finish color. I am really impressed also by how complex it looks on my eyes. With just smudged brown eyeliner at the base of my lashes and Alchemy applied all over my lids and slightly past my crease, it was a complete look. The multi-color shimmer and light-reflective quality of this color appears to deepen in my crease and all the low points of my eye, effectively highlighting and shading all the right areas.
This is such an easy and beautiful shade! I'm trying to keep my voice down so that I don't start to squeal like a little girl. No jumping up and down and running to the Shiseido counter flinging my credit card at the SA either. I will be very calm about my next purchase. Very calm indeed.
