Introducing Shiseido’s New Fall 2009 Makeup Line!

Shiseido introduces its Fall 2009 Makeup collection, created by Shiseido’s Artistic Director Dick Page. The inspiration for this line was drawn from mosaic art, bringing a variety of different shades together to create a “full wardrobe” of colors, one that would fulfill a woman’s basic needs for every occasion. These colors are reflected in the new Luminizing Satin Eye Color Line, an elegant collection with the luminous look of fine silk. Available in 15 unique shades, this new interpretation of neutrals, pastels and brights makes choosing a color an adventurous pleasure. Each shade is meant to wear alone or in combination for an unlimited variety of looks for the season.

I love Shiseido’s new line! The eye shadows are beautiful! They are rich, and silky, and they last all day! I recently tried all of these products, and they are fabulous. I started with the Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil, and used two beautiful shades of the Luminizing Satin Eye Color. I finished it off with the Distinguish Mascara, which was great.

It is a GREAT line. The colors are beautiful, and they are so rich and bold.  I’ve already decided on the colors I have to try next, and I can’t wait to get my hands on them.  I’m picky about my eyeliners, and this is a great find. It glides on so easily, and smudges beautifully.

Go to your nearest Sephora and check out this line! You won’t be disappointed!

Steal Angelina’s Look!

Angelina Jolie was beautiful as ever at Monday’s Critic’s Choice Awards.  I’ve got the How-To on Angie’s look!

GET THE LOOK: Thick Nefertiti liner goes well with smoky eyes, but if you want to subtly simmer, try a gradually thinning line, like Angelina Jolie. Use a liquid liner to draw a thin rim along upper lashlines. Go over the outer half of each eye one more time, and extend slightly beyond the eye.

INSIDER TRICK: The secret to this look: Line the bottom corner of each eye to accentuate the outer edge and create an exotic almond shape. If done correctly, outer corners will look like a sideways capital Y.

I thought it was only appropriate to pick a liquid eye liner by Shiseido, which Angelina is the spokeswoman for.

This looks like a great set but $230 is a large chuck of change. Now I know there are women who can buy beauty products without every worrying about sticker shock. Unfortunately I was not born with a silver spoon and we have yet to find a rich long lost uncle. So what is your biggest beauty splurge you have spent on one item?


Does Angelina Jolie make you want to buy mascara?
