Lovers of cream eye shadows will not want to skip these pretties from Shiseido. The Shimmering Cream Eye Color range comes in 12 colors and offers a light very creamy texture and a radiant finish with very fine shimmer. Application and blending are easy, whether you use your finger or a brush; this Shiseido product is among those items you can use when in a hurry without compromising sophistication. And since it's a cream shadow there's no fallout and/or need to clean up.
Shiseido BR709 Sable is a very friendly slightly warm taupe. It's one of those colors that make brown eyes look richer and light eyes stand out even more. I tend to wear it with a navy blue eyeliner (Le Metier de Beaute, Burberry or YSL) or a blue mascara. It doesn't need anything extra due to the complexity of this color. The creamy almost skin care-grade texture keeps the pigment and finish in place for a full day with no creasing. I do use an eyelid primer underneath, just as I do with any eye shadow, cream or powder.
Bottom Line: a no-brainer.
Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color ($25) is available at the counters and from Sephora (the latter is online only).
