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.

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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

This is just so pretty! It makes me think of winter berries crushed, their juice used as a perfect flush of color to the cheeks! If I get this, and I just may, I will use it with a light hand as a super bright flush doesn’t look as realistic on me as this would one either someone lighter or much deeper.
