Shiseido Sable

I recently picked up some Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Colors during a sale at Sephora.  This look features one of the colors in Sable.  Shiseido describes these shades as a lightweight cream eye shadow with a radiant, lustrous finish that maintains a just-applied fresh look for 16 hours without smudging or creasing.  It applies easily with your fingertip for a smooth, even finish and hydrates skin with Super Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE.  The color comes in a plastic pot, contains 6 grams of product for $25 and can be purchased online from Sephora’s website. 

I didn’t experience any smudging from wear; however I always wear a base regardless of the claim.  There was slight smudging from my arm swatch after I roughly rubbed the color, but it was primarily the shimmer that moved and not the color itself.  The product is creamy and feels wet or slick, almost like a potted lip balm.  It sets quickly, but gives you enough time to blend.

I will do looks with the other colors I purchased, but see the last photo in The Swatch Bin for swatches.

Get This Look:

I blended my favorite primer with my finger.  I used a Sigma SS252 brush to apply Sable all over my lid and just above my crease.  I set Sable using a shadow (Chameleon).  I reviewed Le Metier de Beaute shadows some time ago and wasn’t hugely impressed given the price; however, there are two that I like and use quite frequently.  Chameleon is one.  See here for a swatch of Chameleon.  I could’ve skipped setting Sable with a shadow had it not been for the pictures.

Using a Louise Young LY38B, I blended Saffron into my crease and blended that color up toward my brow bone using a fluffy brush and a skin tone shade.  I placed the outer corner shade at an angle using a small pencil brush (LY13) and blended the color over using a Mac 217.  I wanted to keep this color on the outer edge of my lid and not blended too far over.  The shade I chose is a dark teal Inglot shade that is very similar to Mac’s Plumage but the texture and pigmentation is far superior.  See the last photo in The Swatch Bin for a swatch. 

I used the same lid shades on my lower lash line.  I applied the teal gel liner to my upper lash line using a Mac 263.
