I’m back…life sort of got in the way of blogging but I’m back. There was no hype about this particular item I’m featuring today, nothing fancy, and no extreme claims, but after conducting my not-so-recent Shiseido workshop session I still had to pick this as one of my rewards. There is something utterly classic about their Luminizing Satin Face color shades…especially this requisite peachy-pink blush RD103 or Petal as it is known abroad.
As you’ll notice it’s been weeks since the Shiseido Workshop I mentioned…but I’m also putting this centerstage because in the last 2 weeks I’ve been reaching for it. You know that when you just can’t get your hands off something on a daily basis it doesn’t matter whether you were filled to the brim with excitement when you got it or not, the fact that you organically keep putting it on without over-thinking that you are…tagline or not…it’s a winner. It’s got the right amount of pink, if it had any more peach in it it would be similar to Benefit Coralista. It’s got sheen in it but not the sort of shimmer that gets everywhere and the sheen is understated. The blush isn’t cheap at about Php1250 but if you want a classic blush with a huge mirror and a sophisticated (not overly embellished) compact you can slip into a classy bag even for evenings out Shiseido’s blushes are the bomb.
Blushes on skin are always the most difficult to photograph for a beauty blog so this is just a hint more pink in real life. I didn’t want to pack on too much but the pigment is a medium strength…not something you can make a mistake with, but not disappointingly sheer either. The shine on the apple of my cheek is due to a dewy foundation I was testing out beneath the blush which happens to be my new holy grail drugstore foundation and a dupe for a really expensive foundation I recently bought. More on that perhaps later tonight! I owe you guys a truckload of posts (not to mention excuses that rake in a ton of nods) after being reasonably sidetracked by getting sick, celebrating my brother’s birthday, and a shoot I did yesterday. Shiseido products are available locally in leading department stores and malls with boutiques.
