Shiseido Summer 2010 - Ocean Collection
Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in BK904 Black Sand - a very blackened green eyeliner with gold shimmer.
Perfect Rouge in RD630 Red Triton - this is the colour of red algae, a rich shimmering rust/bronze red that's buildable in coverage.
Luminizing Satin Face Color in PK107 Medusa, a pale, cool silvery pink highlight colour.
Even the yellow/gold Luminizing Satin Eyeshadow in GD824 Ocean Sunset is surprisingly wearable for a yellow-based eyeshadow; it has a lightness and luminescence that prevents it from looking jaundiced.
I'm not sure that I could wear the Luminizing Satin Face Color in GD809 Shell, as it is quite a rich bronze, although the texture is very fine, like the other Luminizing Face Colors. The other Luminizing Satin Face Color is OR308 Starfish, a reddish orange, which would give the effect of skin that has been caught by the sun.
The last item in the collection is the Luminizing Lip Gloss in SV809 Rainbow, a clear gloss with multi-coloured shimmer pearls.
I'll probably buy the Smoothing Eyeliner, and possibly the Perfect Rouge from the collection too. I'd like to get the Luminizing Face Color in Medusa, but these are very expensive here at £30 each, so I will most likely pass on this. All items are limited edition.
This is another excellent collection from Dick Page; I love the way he plays with colour and texture.
