Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Beach Grass

Happy Friday everyone!

Here is a quick look I wore today, using my new Shiseido palette Beach Grass (RD 299), a Macy's exclusive ($33) created by Shiseido's Creative Director, makeup artist Dick Page. This palette consists of a mid-tone mauve satin; a gorgeous shimmery, pale marigold; and a soft bisque for highlighting.

I don't own many Shiseido products, but I do love their cream eyeshadows--they make great bases for powders or pigments and are also really pretty on their own. Shiseido has been around for ages (incorporated in 1927 according to this source) and I think this brand is often overlooked in the U.S., but offers some nice products. I didn't have high hopes for this trio, because the pigmentation seemed a bit lacking, but it's actually just right for daytime and I think this may become a favorite because of its simplicity: gold on the lid, mauve in the crease, some of the cream color as a highlight - throw on some eyeliner & done! :) The gold adds a little interest to what might otherwise be a dull look, and is easy to wear because it gives a soft glow rather than a full metallic finish.

I love the delicate flower logo

Eyeshadow was applied without a base. I used the gold shade on lid, mauve on crease, and the cream as a brow highlight.

Thanks for visiting!
