Shiseido has always been a pioneer when it comes to innovation, research, and to understand and maintain the relationship between the brain, body, and skin. Shiseido has introduced ReNeura Technology which is a revolutionary innovation inspired by neuroscience, that means this technology activates the power of touch and awakens unresponsive skin by creating seamless connections between internal messaging systems which in turn makes the skin respond to skincare by fighting against the signs of ageing and generating the luminosity from within.

Shiseido White Lucent range is inspired by Sakura, Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms. The range focusses on visibly creating luminous, even complexion. The newest addition to brand’s cult favourite brightening range contains the Sakura – Bright Complex which is a blend of potent ingredients that address dark spots.

I have been using three products from the range – White Lucent Brightening Gel Cream, White Lucent Overnight Cream and Mask, and White Lucent Brightening Day Emulsion. The three products are all very lightweight, great even for summers, soaks into the skin nicely except the mask which is meant to be washed away. The White Lucent Brightening Gel Cream and Day Emulsion very well when used together or even alone after a Serum. The finish is radiant and dewy without any oiliness. They both work as a nice base for the makeup too. The Emulsion provides extra benefits of suncare without any white cast, one of the lightest sunscreens I have used. The products did not break me out. Now, coming to the White Lucent Overnight Cream and Mask which has kind of same texture, lightweight but a little richer than the gel cream. I apply a thick layer and then before going to bed, I massage the product which has not soaked into the skin. Or otherwise, I wash my face before bed and apply the White Lucent Brightening Gel Cream and my eye cream.

The White Lucent range is fragranced with notes of Sudachi (a Japanese citrus fruit), rose, jasmine, and magnolia. It is also blended with plumeria, that is proven to suppress melanin production. The packaging of the products – subtle pink and white ombre – is reminiscent of the cherry blossom’s unique rosy glow and is influenced by Keshiki, a term unique to Japanese ceramics that expresses how everything from glaze to clay colour plays out on the surface of a piece. The elegantly curved top is designed to mimic the continually swaying surface of the water, while the glass jar containing the gel cream and overnight mask were crafted inspired by Japanese tea bowls used in traditional tea ceremonies.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might know how much I like the new Shiseido makeup, the products are so beautiful, the formulas glide on the skin like second-skin and the performance is great. I reviewed most of the products from the newly launched Shiseido Makeup range here in the past. I am sharing two products – one is new to me and the other is new shades of a favourite – in this post.

Shiseido MicroLiner Ink, Kajal InkArtist

Shiseido Kajal InkArtist is one of the creamiest and beautiful product with enough pigment that builds on quickly to give as much intensity and boldness you want or a single swipe is perfect for everyday use. The staying power is amazing. I have been using the shades 04 Azuki Red and 05 Plum Blossom since January this year and they are like my reintroduction to colour on eyes, which in the past I did not like to experience much. They work great as an eye shadow, eyeliner, and even on the brows. The formula is very lightweight and the finish is matte. The tip of the liner with a sponge on the other side is perfect to apply and smudge.

I have two new shades on rotation – 06 Birodo Green and 09 Nippon Noir, swatches are below. This is definitely a keeper and I do look forward to using more color on my eyes.

Shiseido MicroLiner Ink is a micro-fine eyeliner with high impact pigments glides across lids with the utmost precision to deliver a weightless, smudge-proof matte inky line. The weightless, inky pencil features thermo-sensory technology that allows this formula to transform from a solid to a liquid upon contact with skin, creating a flexible, water-resistant film that lasts for over 12 hours that I have tested. The micro-thin lead can also be dotted between lashes or glided across eyes with remarkable precision and no skipping. It is available in five shades inspired by Sumi ink sticks used in traditional Japanese calligraphy and I have swatched two shades for you guys which I have been using on rotation – 01 Black and 02 Brown – both are perfect for my everyday look.

Shiseido Holiday Ribbonesia Limited Edition Collection reflects Shiseido’s Holiday Spirit – its warmth, humanity, and uncontained joy. For Shiseido product, beauty is –literally– a splendid gift. Something that can perfect, soothe, and brighten not only a person’s skin but her spirit and overall outlook too. Keeping in mind this spirit, the collaboration between Shiseido and Ribbonesia is called a natural collaboration. Shiseido’s name comes from a passage in the Chinese classic I Ching which translates to mean “How excellent are the virtues of the earth, from which all creation is born.” Like Shiseido, Ribbonesia finds creative inspiration from the regularity, complexity, and essential beauty of natural forms.

Just as a painter uses different brush strokes, Baku Maeda uses various twists, bends and folds to create colorful, sculptural art pieces using ribbon as a medium. Toru Yoshikawa develops the theme and concept for each one. Together, they make art as a team, known as Ribbonesia. Some of their work is as simple and understated as origami. Other pieces are intricately tangled and complex. Inspired by forms found in nature, Ribbonesia brings out the essential beauty of the natural world around us, in three-dimensional color.
