Shiseido backlog

Some things I've purchased these ages ago and never really got around to posting about them.
Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color VI720 Ghost
Camera failed to to capture the pretty shimmers.
Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color RD709 Alchemy

Alchemy & Ghost (soft lighting)

Alchemy & Ghost (in direct sunlight and sparkling)

Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color WT905 High Beam White
(totally in love with this)

Shiseido Perfect Rouge OR544 Tiger in direct sunlight (it might melt in the head at this rate)
much duller looking indoors (what it would normally look like)
The white face colour and lipstick are not sold in the Australian market. Visiting the Shiseido counter at my local department store (David Jones & Myers) is depressing because of the empty slots for testers and the high mark up.

I really like the face colour, it's the perfect highlighter and it makes a great eyeshadow.  It makes my skin look smoother too.  I like applying it on top of my blush and as a wash over my eyelids before other eye shadows because it helps neutralize my eyelids to make other colors pop.

Ghost is an interesting shade, I think this shade doesn't work very well on my coloring when it is by itself.  It looks much better with high beam under it and suqqu 06 palette's grey and dark purple to line.

I was rather confused when I received the lipstick because it wasn't what I expected.  It looked really dull and less orange than some online pics. The actual product applies to a bright red orange on my lips.  I would wear it sheered out with gloss on top...preferably Lunasol gloss as that stuff plumps up my lips while the lipstick doesn't do anything but add color.  It lives in my neglect pile.
