I may be on a bit of a Shiseido kick these days and have a lot of affection building up for their lovely products, especially the eye shadow singles. Having tried the smooth as silk cream shadow, I continue my delight with the brand. I guess I'm going to have to see if the product dries over the months, but for now, it feels lovely to apply and easy to blend. It sets and become immobile. As usual, I use my eye shadow primer (Nars) under all my eye mkeup.
Here are two swatches. On the left the color is applied with my finger and layered to produce a very opaque swatch. It's a lovely warm black with multi-color shimmer. The shimmer is more apparent in the sheered out swatch on the right. It is also applied and blend out with my fingers and the shimmer is definitely there. I sort of wish it was a matte black as it would be a more versatile base when used with other colors and wouldn't compete, but I love how it looks so dimensional and deep all by itself.
What other favorites from Shiseido do you think I should keep my eye out for? I'm gazing longingly at the newly reformulated Perfect Rouges.
