I was given a sneak peek at the Maquillage Spring 2010 collection when I was at a Shiseido beauty workshop today. The session primarily focused on Shiseido’s new spring makeup so when the good people at the company suddenly whipped out a few Maquillage palettes, my makeup senses went into overdrive!
BE763 and GR764
Comprising Eyes Creator (3D) in BE763 and GR764 (both are limited edition), as well as Eyes Creator (3D) in BR765, PK766 and VI767, this range of wearable palettes will appeal to women who want sheer yet buildable colour for the season.
BE763 and GR764’s special edition pearlescent casing
Based on a maritime theme and bearing seaside-related motifs, the two limited edition palettes remind one of the sea – BE763, with its sandy/sunset shades and GR764, with its ocean hues. Both have oversprays of stars and seashells on their cream shadow pans and their powder shadow pans have a wavy bevelled surface reminiscent of undulating waves, like Lunasol Nature Color Eyes in Nature Blue.
GR764 caught my eye with its beautiful lime green, aqua and soft lavender but its star has to be the pewter cream in the lower right corner. It blends wonderfully over powder, believe it or not. I’d used the blue and the green on a model earlier and I applied the pewter directly over these colours for a second look. We both loved how its smooth texture effortlessly transformed her earlier spring look into a smokey one without any caking and how it easily delivers a gorgeous blended look on its own (I used only my ring finger and the sponge-tipped applicator). Unfortunately, the swatch does it no justice – you’ll have to test it at the counter to see this yourself! ;)
They are by and large wearable but sheer for the most part. There are a few pigmented gems here and there, as you can see from the swatches. According to Shiseido Singapore, this collection will launch in early March but Iris of Rouge Deluxe tells me that the collection is already on display at the Shiseido counter at Isetan Scotts! ;)
