Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color in Ghost VI720

Let's go Ghost hunting.  This particular eye shadow is notoriously hard to capture in photos what shows up so intriguingly on the skin.  It is a soft sterling grey eye shadow single.
Ghost is bright sterling silver in some lights, then a lovely delicate lavender grey in others, and then some more mysterious glimmer of shimmer in other lights.  Aptly named, it is less Casper the Friendly Ghost in bright white, and more an ephemeral glimpse of nuanced shading and delicate finish.

Shiseido eye shadow singles have some of the softest textures and delicate finishes on the eye.  Ghost makes a lovely case for its mysterious name and an ideal representation of the best of Shiseido singles.
I'm something between NC15 or 20 these days and my inner swatching arm is close to 15 I think.  (As a digression, I went to the MAC counter recently and was matched, so I'm reasonable sure about my skin tone)

The finish is soft and has a very delicate translucency on the skin.  Perhaps you can see a little of the lavender on the above swatch.  Below you can see how pale and silvery it looks in the shade.
May I present a bit of its ghostliness that I've captured?
Are you a Ghost hunter, too?  Is this among your favorites?

I have another Swatch Set post planned of Ghost's grey friends such as Addiction's Concrete Jungle.  I hope to get it up soon after some editing of the photos.

    1. It is permanent, BUT Shiseido is discontinuing their singles from what I've heard. Please confirm with the counter, but if you are interested in this or any of their singles, you should get them sooner rather than later!
