Shiseido Spring 2010 FOTD
This was my Mother's Day face today. I'm wearing Luminizing Satin Eye Colour GR712 Kombu (from Autumn 2009), Luminizing Satin Face Colour RD103 Petal and Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer RD629 Natural Red.
I love this blush. I had huge sticker shock when I bought it (it was £30) but I've been reaching for it a lot, and it gives a perfect glowy natural flush on me. I can't say I'm running out to buy more of them at this price, but if you're in the US (they're $30 there) these are well worth a look.
The Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer RD629 gives naturally flushed lips on me (I have pale mauveish lips, if yours are more pigmented then it'll give a redder look,) and is also moisturising and conditioning on my dry lips. With no scent and no shimmer, it's pretty much my perfect sheer lipstick. The colour is somewhere between Julie Hewett Gem Noir and Oona Noir, for those of you familiar with those colours; a neutral sheer red. I'm very tempted by PK327 Tender too, a natural pink.
The eyeshadow in GR712 Kombu is definitely my sort of colour; a sludgy khaki green with gold shimmer that I find very flattering on my sludgy brown eyes.
I love what Dick Page is doing with Shiseido; his eye for textures and colours is impeccable, and I'm looking forward to future collections very much.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out there.
