Shiseido BR 727 Fog Shimmering Cream Eye Color





Here's another review that practically writes itself. Shiseido has added an impressive number of new colors to their much-loved Shimmering Cream Eye Color range. My personal wishlist includes at least five more shades, but I've been good and only gotten this one as a start, BR727 Fog.

Upon first glance Fog appears on the gray side of things, but there's a reason Shiseido's numbering system has it listed as a BR (brown family). The color is incredibly complex and changes with the light and the movement of the lid. I find that applying with a finger and blending the edges with a brush gives me the best results, as a color-packing brush doesn't conform perfectly to the eye contour. But it's a matter of preference, technique, brush, and mood.

The important thing is that the formula of Shiseido Shimmering cream shadows is incredibly light, quick to set, and keeps its vitality all day long. Since Fog is such a sophisticated neutral I find it a great every day color, despite the glimmering effect (even just a dab at the center of your lid will do wonders). Primer is not utterly necessary, but you know me: I'm a purist. It's one of those colors and products that lend themselves to a swipe-and-go application, perfect on an early morning or when you really can't be too bothered. The result is always more polished than just about anything else you could do.

Bottom Line: which one will be next?

Shiseido BR 727 Fog Shimmering Cream Eye Color ($25) is available at the counters and online.

  1. This one is on my wishlist for few months, but somehow I can never find it in person, should try during my next visit to US. Looks like a beautiful color (I was also concerned it may be too grey) and Shiseido cream eyeshadows are really good and easy to apply.

  2. My local Shiseido counter has disappeared (along with Clarins). :( I will probably order this one online, as it looks like just the color and finish I've been wishing for.

    1. Thank you, Bella. I'll try to do better. I'm still working on that mojo thing.

  4. I'm not trying to be nosy but the wood finish in the background looks very interesting. Old, oiled, oxidized oak. My very favorite kind of finish.

    1. Marsha, the table was a fortunate find at Brimfield a couple of weeks ago. We needed something for the guest bedroom, and the oak was a perfect fit thereAll the interesting stuff I sometimes use in my photos are little odds and ends I pick at flea markets, antique stores, estate sales, and occasionally online.

    2. I've heard a lot about Brimfield over the past 30 years, but never had the chance to go. I love those little odds and ends you pick up in places like that!

  5. These cream shadows have become one of my favorites, along with Tom Ford's and the Armani eye tints. I find these give me slightly more blending time, which is helpful for a klutz like me. I have four colors, including BR 727, and there are more I'd like to get. Need to downsize some other cream shadows to make room for more of these.

  6. You are my girl! I love cream eye shadows and always on the hunt for a good one, I would have overlooked these if it is not for you. Many many thanks
