Shiseido has a new product out: “Luminizing Satin” eyeshadow trios ($33), inspired by the global travels of creative director Dick Page.
Snow Shadow (GY901) was inspired by â€œa wintery Long Island scene.â€ Opera (GD804) was named for Palais Garnier, an opera house in Paris. Strata was inspired by rocks in New Mexico; Tropicalia by a plant in southern California — the others are pretty self-explanatory.
According to Shiseido, a good bit of makeup technology went into these shadows. They say the shadows contain light-reflective pigment,Â pearl for smoothness, a hydrating ingredient, and provide all-day wear.
All I can tell you is that they are fantastic: soft, smooth, pigmented. Your only challenge will be choosing a trio that works for you. The shades are all shimmery; the first shade in Tropicalia also has tiny blue sparkles.
These trios are the second Luminizing Satin eyeshadow products from Shiseido (the singles are $25 each and come in 21 shades, plus one limited edition summer color).
