Kudos to Shiseido makeup director Dick Page for his Fall 2009 Color Collection. We’re especially fixated on several great new eye products, starting with the Luminizing Satin Eye Color range. The eye colors were previewed on the FW Fall 2009 runways for leading designers including Michael Kors and Narciso Rodriguez.
The dazzling mono-eyeshadow palettes come in 15 shades of neutrals, pastels and brights. Cavern and Alchemy are two color options that flatter all skin tones. At $25, the formulation contains dual-optimizing powder and satin smooth pearl to deliver a luminous, silky finish, and “super hydro-wrap vitalizing DE” to provide continuous moisture.
We never had any luck with eyeliners until we drew a perfect line on our first try with Shiseido’s Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil ($20). It comes in black and brown and has a smudge applicator on the other end for blending or creating a smoky eye.
The Natural Eyebrow Pencil ($20) is our absolute favorite. The pencil, which comes in four shades, doesn’t deposit any detectable color but rather melds into the natural color of our brows. Without looking like we’ve applied any product, we can quickly make our eyebrows appear full and symmetrical. A smoothing brush is attached to finish the look.
From now through the end of October, Shiseido will donate $5 from every sale of Luminizing Satin Eye Color in Peony to Cancer and Careers, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting working women living with cancer. So we can do some good while looking great.
