I saw Shiseido Spring 2010 yesterday and it is very lovely indeed.
I bought Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer in RD629 Natural Red. I know, I know, because I needed another red lipstick, right? This one is very comfortable, and has a touch less pink to it than Lipstick Queen Medieval.
I also bought Luminizing Satin Face Color in RD103 Petal, a natural warm pink. Quite a big sticker shock on the blush - these are £30 each (yes, I should have asked before I bought it.) You do get a fair bit though; 6.5g for that price, compared to £22 for 4.5g in a Suqqu single blush (a blush of comparable quality.) This is also a new product for Spring, and comes in 6 shades;
- warm red RD401 Orchid,
- medium slightly browned rose RS302 Tea Rose,
- RD103 Petal,
- cool pink PK304 Carnation,
- white WT905 High Beam White, and
- gold BE206 Soft Beam Gold.
Swatch of Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer lipstick RD 629.
Applied to my lips. This is a very comfortable, casual sheer red that can be built up. It's a great beginner's red.
Other pieces of the collection I liked:
Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte in BR323 Wink - a sheer matte beige/brown with tiny green iridescent particles.
Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte in PK224 Sugar Babe - pictured on my lips here, a light coral pink matte.
Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer in PK327 Tender - a warm sheer light pink.
Luminizing Satin Eye Colour VI720 Ghost - mauve with multi-coloured iridescence.
I bought these at Selfridges. Shiseido is reasonably widely available in department stores in the UK. In the US, it is available at Sephora.com, and in department stores.
