Yesterday was such fun! I think it was possibly the most FUN workshop Ive attended. All the other events I get invited for, doesnt encourage much interaction, but this workshop did, and I thank PEARLIN for the invitation, and IRIS of Shiseido for holding it 🙂
Iris of Shiseido ran us through the stuff for Shiseido\’s latest spring collection, as well as their new matte foundation.
My opinion on some of the products:
EYESHADOWS: Colours appear too soft for my liking. But I like their slight gld undertone. I have yet to try them out on my own self, to give a final verdict. However colours, even though they were soft, were pretty much pigmented when swatched. (SGD43 EACH)
LIPLINERS: OH I LOVE! I have a weakness for lipliners! and these are SO creamy, they simply glide on! Im not a fan of the brush at the other end, but I would totally get the lipliners cuz of their strong colours that glide on so creamy, and dont dry out the lips!
LIPSTICKS: The lipsticks came in two types, TENDER SHEER and GLOWING MATTE. The Tender sheer was a pleasant surprise to me. Especially on SUPER dark brown lipstick, that came off as a REALLY sweet berry shade! So for people like me, who don\’t favour too much colour on the lips, the tender sheer is indeed a great option as you get a hint of colour, without going overboard. The matte lipsticks were pretty normal. Creamy, yet matte. I liked the neutral shades! (SGD43 EACH)
LIPGLOSSES: Iris mentioned how they had some special gel formula to it, thus it wasnt soo sticky, and she was right. I tried on my goodiebag lipgloss later that night, and didnt find it too sticky or tacky on the lips. Various pretty shades, but of course I favoured the neutral shades best! (SGD 39 EACH)
EYELINER: OMG! Ok i didnt get to try any colour other than black but DAMN i loved the intensity!! SUPER RICH BLACK!! and after a while, I tried to wipe, but it didnt smudge! I will definitely be purchasing this soon!!
BLUSHERS: Soft colours with nice golden udnertones. MY absolute fav! I love soft colours for blushers and these came in really sweet soft shades. There also were two highlights. One was white, one was a natural shade. Both were lovely, but I like the white, cuz it looks MATTE but when you swatch it, you see how it has such a lovely sheen to it. AWESOME for highlighting the cheekbones, nose etc. (SGD56 EACH)
See the subtle gold undertones??
Lovely soft shades, and on the bottom LEFT, the white and neutral shade highlighter/bronzer
