Shiseido Perfect Rouge and Luminizing Satin Eye Color

I first tried out the Shiseido Perfect Rouge and Luminizing Satin Eye Color in the Fall but never got around to posting about it. For the Spring, 5 new eye colors were released along with new finishes for the Perfect Rouge line and a new line of lip glosses.

The Luminizing Satin Eye colors are really nice shadows. They go on smooth, have nice subtle shimmer, good pigmentation and lasting power. The first one I had purchased was VI399 (Amethyst), which is a Bloomingdale's exclusive.

Here are a few of the new Spring 2010 colors- 1st row: BL223 (Sky-cornflower blue), GR222(Fondant-seafoam green) 2nd row: PK319(Peach-light golden pink) and VI720(Ghost-grey violet)


The Perfect Rouge lipsticks are quite comfortable lipstick. They feel moisturizing and glide nicely. For Spring 2010, the glowing matte finish and tender sheer finish were released. Here are the lipsticks I currently own(l->r): RS320(Fuchsia), PK421 (Rose Quartz-light blue pink), PK307 (Tourmaline-medium pink) and PK 224(Sugar Babe-matte coral)

PK224 (Sugar Babe) is one of the glowing mattes. It's not as drying as other true matte lipsticks I've tried and does go on in a translucent suede kind of way.

The other new lip product released was the Luminizing Lip Gloss. It's a very light and non-sticky gloss. For me the texture was definitely very silky, almost too silky and verging on watery, but I got use to it. The gloss goes on very nicely and leaves lips feeling moisturized. I picked up PK303(Bellini) and PK406(Pop Life).

Swatches for the lip products:

Top row (l->r): RS320(Fuchsia), PK421 (Rose Quartz),
PK307 (Tourmaline) and PK 224(Sugar Babe)
Middle row: PK406 (Pop Life)
Bottom row: PK303 (Bellini)

Here's a fotd with the Luminizing eye shadows in VI720, VI399, and PK319:

Paul & Joe Alice in Wonderland Set - Fantasy *Updated*

I picked up one of the Paul & Joe Alice in Wonderland Sets today. There are 2 versions available (Fantasy and Daydream) and at first I thought I would go for the blue one (Daydream) but after checking out the packaging in person I went with the pink one (Fantasy) afterall. I just ended up liking the images in that set more.

Super cute outer box, which is light pink (Sorry, camera did not pick that up):

Outside of tin:

The set includes a lip treatment stick that goes on clear, a blotting paper holder with 100 sheets and a 100 sheet refill in a metal tin.

Top of pic is the blotting paper refill.

Close up of lip treatment stick:

Inside of blotting paper holder. It's the same size as other Paul & Joe blotting paper holders and can hold the regular refills if you use up the enclosed sheets:

*update* More cuteness, pics of the blotting papers:

Although I'm not a big Alice in Wonderland fan, this was an adorable set. The set costs $48 at Bergdorf Goodman and is fair considering the regular blotting paper holder is already $24 and a refill costs $4. There were also a few non-AIW items released-5 new nail polishes and 5 creme to powder blushes.
