Shiseido autumn winter 2013
I haven’t seen any Shiseido make up for a long time to be honest, but have certainly spotted the buzz about their forthcoming Color Bar for autumn/winter 2013. You can see it in the top corner of this picture posted on the Shiseido FB page.
I don’t know how much it’s going to be but those colours look extremely wearable – they could be taken from a Farrow & Ball paint chart because they’re muted architectural style that’s the difference between pared back elegance and full on colour shots.

I have come to love Shiseido’s makeup and skin care. For some reason, the skin care, in particular the White Lucent Intensive Anti-Spot Targeting Serum, delivers results on my skin. It really almost eliminated a huge brown spot on my cheek and diminished several other spots. I am skeptical about cosmetics companies’ claims but this one works. Maybe because I’m Asian? Is there a genetic component to this? They do test their products on Asian women and target them to that demographic group.
Anyway after using Shiseido’s skin care products (I am now hooked on the cleansing oil, Benefiance foaming mousse cleanser and the Revitalizing Cream), I started trying out their foundations, eyeshadows, and blushes. I used their cream eye shadows in Singapore last year because they withstand humid climates. I began using the foundations, which last through the most humid Singapore days. I am just amazed at how finely milled the powders are — the Luminizing Satin Face Color blushes are amazing. I use the color “Medusa” right under my eyes and up to the temple to diminish my dark eye bags. You should try that one — I don’t use a concealer anymore! And for the cheeks I use Starfish, which looks like a coral-orange blend and makes the face look bright and healthy. I recently bought the Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Beach Grass and it is the most beautiful eye shadow palette that I own.
Shiseido is so underrated because they’re not very good at marketing to the US and Europe. In Asia, of course, it’s a different story. It’s very popular in Singapore, the Philippines, etc.
I have asked Dick for one of these as soon as I saw it 🙂
