Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge is available in a few new shades for Spring 2013 so I quickly snatched up one (even though I was tempted to get them all).
Maquillage is one of the sub-brands that’s part of Shiseido in Japan. Such a shame its never made its way to the US.
The appealing aspect of Essence Glamorous Rouge was the colors were inspired by natural lip colors and tone so it gives you that “your lips but better” finish.
Take a look!
Some girls are Shiseido Maquillage girls, some girls aren’t. I happen to be in the “aren’t group”. I dunno why but I’ve never fully embraced the Shiseido Maquillage line.
Shiseido Maquillage is a sub-brand from Shiseido available in Japanese drugstores (and a few select Asian countries as well). Quality is on par with counter makeup and the brand has a very large cult following however I’ve always dabbled my time away with other Shiseido sub-brands like Majolica Majorca.
Recently, my interest did get piqued again (it does sometimes with Maquillage) and I decided to haul some of the new Essence Glamour Rouges.
Let’s take a look!
My Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set arrived from Japan last week. Lots of squealing, hyperventilating, and screaming occurred during the surgical procedure of opening and unwrapping the contents of the box it arrived in.
It’s probably my most expensive makeup purchase I’ve made this Holiday season, tipping the scales at nearly $200 USD due to costly airmail shipping.
It’s gorgeous to say the least.
Let’s have a look!
Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set launches in Japan at the end of November and I can barely breath awaiting its arrival.
Shiseido’s Maquillage line has never been one of my favorite Japanese Brands and I do find I pass it up to venture towards other product lines. Not sure why that is but it just fails to excite me.
But I have no such reserves about celebrating their 5th Anniversary in style with the Powder Celebration Set, simply put, it’s stunning!
I can’t help but associate Spring with the color green. Green symbolizes rebirth somehow and the beginning of a warmer season when the new flowers begin to bloom, the grass begins to peek it’s head up from the cold melting blanket of snow, and nature begins to come alive with the warmer weather.
