Shiseido Makeup Reviews, Swatches and Product News

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?

Unlike traditional mascara removers that work like a mascara, the Mascara Combing Remover comes in a twist pen design with a comb on the top. This means no more pushing the wand in and out of the tube and having residue go back into the tube after you have removed the mascara plus you can actually clean the comb and wipe off mascara bits with a tissue – how hygienic!

To use the device, simply twist the back of the pen a few times and wait for the remover to get dispensed onto the comb. Next, comb your lashes as if you are applying mascara. Wait a minute or two for the product to dissolve your mascara and wipe off with a cotton pad. No rinsing is necessary.

I have had a couple of mascara removers that came with a wand but sadly, they all failed miserably. I am definitely going to pick this one up and report back. If you have this, let us know how you are liking it!

Flip through any Japanese magazine and you will definitely see Shiseido Anessa Neo Sunscreen SPF50 ($38) – yes it is THAT popular in Asia. So when it first came out in Hong Kong, I literally ran out and got myself a bottle. But sadly, that turned out to be a not-so-great idea.

Like most Japanese sunscreens, this goes on greasy but dries to a very matte finish and I mean very. In fact, it is so matte that it made my nose slightly flaky. Plus it gave my skin a ghostly white cast which was so not hot! So yes this may come with a high SPF and pretty models in their ads, but I will not be buying this again.
