To start this post, I gazed at Shiseido’s $25 Shimmering Cream Eye Colors and asked myself, “Self, what are the first two words you think of when you look at these?”
And I answered…myself. I said, “fresh and luminous!”
See, the trick is to ask yourself questions when you can’t think of something to say.
These potted cream eyeshadows come in a bunch of colors that, gloriously, do not settle into my fine lines, and since they aren’t fully opaque, some of my natural skin color peeks through when I wear ’em, which sort of gives them a casual effect like, “Yes, I did spend the day relaxing and reading on a sunny park bench.”
I like to wear Esmaralda (the teal one) or Lemoncello (the golden yellow) on top of NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. With Pro-Prime, I get 8-9 hours of wear.
You can find both of these shades, along with about a zillion others, now at Shiseido counters and online.
