Shiseido Maquillage Fall 2008 Mode Mix Collection

Shiseido Maquillage has hooked up with London-based designer Christopher Kane for its latest Fall 2008 Mode Mix Collection to appeal to the hip and young. The collection features a new eyeshadow duo (Forming Shiny Eyes), blush (Designer Cheek Colors), eyebrow pencil (Soft Brow Liner) and new colors for its famous Lasting Climax Rouge. Shiseido has also hired it model Agyness Deyn, along with 4 Japanese celebrities – Anne Watanabe, Chiaki Kuriyama, Misaki Ito and Yuri Ebihara – to demonstrate the 5 different looks for the collection. My favorites are Modern Mix and Lovely Mix. What are yours?


  1. Modern Mix, for sure! I’ve been eyeing it for the last month… It’s really steep, in both Hong Kong and Taiwan, with the exchange rates still works out to be $30ish CAD. How much does it cost in States/Canada?

    My aunt picked up the Maquillage Blush in the darker shade though, and it’s absolutely GORGEOUS. 😀

  2. Love mix is my most favorite! Gold and purple combination is kind of unexpected and unique. Active mix is also nice but I’m not a big fan of orangy/peachy lip color. Beautiful color palettes though!

  3. PHYLLIS…WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT YOU? Great review…. I just recently got into Shiseido…works wonders for Asian tones! Keep up the good work!

  4. the active mix and the lovely mix both look great, although i really love the lip shade in the active mix!! i must go to the department store soon… MAC recently opened a boutique there too, which is AWESOME because i live in korea and i wouldn’t have access to MAC otherwise so… yay!!!!
