Twilight Hour (02)

Shiseido Twilight Hour (02) InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a barley-there golden pearl. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The powder was velvety, silky, and smooth to the touch without being powdery (but it also wasn’t too dense or stiff in the pan). It was on the thinner side, though, and applied better over lightly powdered (or drier) skin than on my bare skin, particularly with respect to evenness and blendability. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.14 oz. - $207.14 Per Ounce

According to the brand, it's a highlighting blush that "stay[s] put for eight hours" with "high color payoff and superior glide." The shades I tried were semi-opaque to opaque in pigmentation with finishes that ranged from satin to metallic. I found that the most shimmery shade I tried, Inner Light, did emphasize my skin's natural texture, while the others did not. The powders had a smooth, almost creamy-like texture that was firmer in the pan (no excess product kicked up), but it picked up well with brushes, adhered to skin evenly, and blended with ease along the edges. The wear was between eight and nine hours on me.

Solar Haze (05)

Shiseido Solar Haze (05) InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, golden orange with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The consistency was dense, firm but not stiff, and smooth to the touch. Of the shades I tried in the range, this was one of the more shimmery ones, and I did find that it emphasized my skin’s texture somewhat when worn at semi-opaque or higher coverage. The less shimmery shades have been more smoothing/softening overall. The powder was easy to apply and blend out, though, and stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Inner Light (01)

Shiseido Inner Light (01) InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, pinky-beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation (though it might seem more medium-coverage based on how close it appears to my skin in my arm swatch) in a single layer with a very shiny, very frosted finish. This is more like a true highlighter for most skin tones but on very fair skin tones, it would add color as well. While the powder had a smooth, velvety texture that was almost cream-like, it did not sit as well on my skin as I anticipated; I found it rather accentuating of my natural texture. I thought it was just that day I swatched it, but it was the same on subsequent applications. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Night Rose (203)

Shiseido Night Rose (203) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, dusty coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, which spread evenly across my lips. It had a lightweight consistency that was not quite as slippery as other shades in the range, and I felt like it sank into my deeper lip lines a tad, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The lipstick was creamy and easy to apply, so the wear was comfortable over the five hours it stayed on well for.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.05 oz. - $520.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high levels of pigment" for "cushiony, comfortable, weightless color" that lasts for "six hours." I tried nine shades (there are 28), and they were beautiful across the board. They had rich color coverage in a single stroke, just as promised, and they were creamy and emollient, which made them comfortable and easy to apply on my lips. Over time (about an hour or so), the shine wore down a bit and the consistency felt a little tackier, but most of the shades lasted for six to eight hours and some of the mid-tone and deeper shades made it through a meal adequately. The formula remained comfortable to wear, kept my lips hydrated while worn but they often felt quite good even a few hours later after a shade wore down. There was no discernible scent or taste.

The biggest downside to the product is that each tube contains a mere 0.05 oz., which is absolutely tiny relative to most traditional lipsticks (contrast this with the also-just released ModernMatte lipstick, which is the same price but contains 0.14 oz.).

Berry Dawn (08)

Shiseido Berry Dawn (08) InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep plum with modeate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, velvety, and finely-milled without being too dense or too softly pressed in the pan. There wasn’t any excess product that kicked up in the pan when I swirled my brush in it, but it was still readily picked up by my brush, deposited evenly to bare skin, and diffused easily along the edges for a smooth, even laydown of color. It had a noticeable sheen, but it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture and wasn’t a true frost or metallic on but a little more shimmery than a true satin. It wore well for nine hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

Shiseido Code Red (221) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which covered my lips with even, smooth coverage. The texture was creamy and lightweight, which enabled the lipstick to skate across my lips with ease. The formula is extremely comfortable to wear but does eventually wear down to a more satin finish that has light tackiness (but doesn’t lift the color or create patchiness) that I imagine helps this shade last well for nearly eight hours while still being very hydrating.
