Product Review: Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Control Base SPF33 PA+++

I was looking for a makeup primer with an SPF to save me that extra step in the morning, and was torn between getting the Paul & Joe Beaute’s UV primer (SPF40 PA+++) and this one from Shiseido. This White Lucent base isn’t released in Canada by the way, so I bought it from strawberrynet.com for US$42.00 which included shipping. Being a fan of Shiseido sunscreens, and hoping the pink tint will be just like Benefit’s That Gal primer, I picked the pink/rose color. This is also available in Ivory and Green – Ivory is supposed to correct uneven skin tone, pink brightens dull skin and Green neutralizes redness. I didn’t want anything that might smear and look like I had makeup on so I went for the pink. Read more…

Products Review: Qiora

For a long time, I wondered what is so special about Shiseido’s Qiora brand. The product packaging looks very nice in a soothing blue tone, and while it is supposed to relax you with the right aroma, I did not know what else this brand was supposed to do for your skin. Like many things Shiseido, Qiora operates on scientific principles, that by relaxing your mind and body (with certain types of fragrances), your skin will become better as a result. You can’t really go wrong with Shiseido, so I gave this line a try – at least the skin care part.

I have tried 3 of their basic products – the Makeup Cleanse, a makeup remover, Clear Lotion RR and Cream DH – and after a month, I decided to write this review.

3 New Products from Shiseido The Makeup

The Luminizing Lip Gloss is one of the new items that was released recently.

3 Must Have New Eye Makeup Items

Japanese beauty products have always set the trend for the world and they show no signs of waning. I love the innovative designs, versatility and quality of the products. Each season, they always come up with a few that you just can’t live without.

Take Shiseido’s Integrate Double Eye Liners for example. Both shades are fool proof (sweat and sebum proof too) to brighten and define your eyes. The Integrate website is one of the best by the way, when you click on each shade of each product, it shows you what it will look like. The Double Eye Liners are less than US$20.00 each, which is a steal since you are getting a great product and Shiseido quality!
