Shiseido Week: My top five favorite products

So how was your weekend? Mine was busy and I wish it was longer, but ain't that typical! I'm just trying to rest as much as I can before my 6:30 AM yoga class tomorrow. I thought I'd blog to just keep my head clear while waiting for dinner to be delivered. 

Let's get cracking! I wanted to close my Shiseido Week with a list of my best finds. I'm thinking I should end all my "branded" themed weeks this way so that I can give everyone a better idea of what to prioritize first from the brand. Of course, my top five is limited by the things I have at the moment and my preferences, but I hope you find the list useful nonetheless. ^_^

So, here are the five Shiseido things I always pick up. They're versatile and have not failed me so far!

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick in PK417. I never did get around to reviewing this in full, but it is one of the oft-used lipsticks in my collection. It's a gorgeous shade of pink - not too loud, but not a shy flower either. Texture is great and lasting power, not bad for something this moisturizing.

Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush. This brush is perfect for concealers, foundations (cream or liquid), and even blush/contour. Indeed, it's the perfect all-in-one brush!

Shiseido Natural Eyebrow Pencil in Deep Brown BR602. This is a recent acquisition but it quickly wormed its way into my daily routine. Polished eyebrows have never been this fool-proof.

Shiseido Eyelash Curler. Annnnd here's my current Holy Grail eyelash curler. Don't get me started, it's best if you read the review haha.

Shiseido Camellia Compact. Last but certainly not the least, the Camellia Compact is a multi-purpose powder that can be applied on eyes and cheeks. The colors can be combined to create different gradations, which I think is a lovely feature especially since it's quite expensive. This is limited edition but you can always try to hunt for it!

So there you go! List all your fave Shiseido stuff here too, I would love to compare lists!

Sadly, I don't own one. :( So expensive ksi! But if I were to include something on my wish list, it would be the Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick in PK417 and, of course, the eyelash curler. Looking forward to this week's theme!

I like the whole packaging of Shiseido Camellia Compact especially the melted rose-like appearance of the powder.. very attractive indeed :) but i still prefer my hervana blush and body shop shimmer waves in bronze :)

I just want to grab these products from the screen! Hehe. I don't have anything pa from shiseido, pero i have the Charm retractable powder brush which you have compared to the perfect foundation brush. Score! Hehe. I want the eyelash curler! I saw an online shop on instagram selling this for a cheaper price. She buys the products she's selling straight from japan and then send it to her sister here in our country. I just don't know if it's the same as this as i've read that there's a different version of this curler. I think i would buy na lang in the Shiseido counter here. Or unless i'm certain that it's exactly the same curler as this one. Have a nice day, Liz!

I also love my Camellia compact blush and sheer matifying powder foundation :) i reach out for it when i'm in a hurry and no time for liquid or cream foundation application. It is very natural and light on the skin. But i don't recommend applying a primer underneath the powder foundation because it slides off your face the minute your oils comes through. I will then try the perfect refining foundation soon. :)
