Shiseido Maquillage Dramatic Mood Veil and Rouge Lipstick

I got an awesome privilege to be invited at the Shiseido Beauty Penthouse. At that time, they were also launching Shiseido's Autumn/Winter Collection for 2015. Two of the products sent to us from this line is the Shiseido Maquillage Dramatic Mood Veil and the Dramatic Melting Rouge Lipstick.When I got the products, I was instantaneously mesmerized by the packaging! The products are housed in a gold structured cube cover. For reference, please see the photos. I was not able to wait til the next morning before I could make a decent product shot that I immediately swatched these awesome babies. 

The Dramatic Mood Veil is a blush and highlighter all in one. It says on Shiseido Website that this product is powdery yet creamy and blends easily for a natural rosy glow. This blush consists of 5 colors in 5 different textures for cheeks and face. This blush/highlighter is a mixture of satin, matte and slightly shimmery blushes. On the pan, the colors may look the same but it magically delivers different hues on my cheeks depending on the color combination that I use. The Dramatic Mood Veil is very creamy and I find that it is not too powdery. The colors may look light on the pan but it gives off a very pigmented color pay off on my cheeks. I was surprised as well because I have medium skin tone and this looks good on me considering that most light colored blushes looked chalky and patchy on my skin especially those that have pink tones. 

This has five shades ranging from light peach, shimmer white, medium rosey pink, light muted pink and a medium barbie pink. All look wearable and delivers a youthful glow when applied. Why five shades?I copy pasted the explanation from Shiseido's Website here for info. 

Contrary to the Directions set by Shiseido on how to use this product, I have never tried wearing this underneath my eyes!!! Although, I might try experimenting on it the next time. It comes with a unique blush brush which is very helpful. 
It comes with a brush and a dome sponge at the other end. I primarily use the brush and swirl it on the pan because that's the easiest and fastest way to apply this product. If I wanted more color or pigment, I use the dome shaped sponge. This is perfect for applying blush on the apples of the cheeks for a doll like effect but of course, there is a need to blend the colors.
I find that this blush stays on my cheeks for hours and is one of my long staying blushes in my kit. I just noticed that most of my light colored blushed have the best staying power on my cheeks compared to my other blushes. This costs 2100 pesos and is available at Shiseido Counters. This also comes with a refill priced at 1700. I really think that despite the hefty price tag, this can last me over a year because a little amount of this product goes a long way. 

Here are the swatches at the back of my hand:
This is how this Dramatic Mood Veil looks on my cheeks. See how it makes me look glowing. If you are not a fan of shimmery products like me, this product is worth a try because it gives off that good amount of glow without looking like a disco ball!!Btw, this blush comes in two shades Coral Red and Peach Pink. I got the shade Peach Pink. 
Next is the Dramatic Melting Rouge Lipstick.

According to Shiseido, this is a beauty-oil based rouge lipstick that promises sheer color with luxurios gloss. True enough, this is a very nice sheer glossy lipstick. It has a slight fruity scent to it but goes away after application. This is housed  in a twist up pen. I had a hard time choosing the color for this lipstick. Most shades are pink or red so I chose a rosey one. I imagined it to be rose pink color for everyday wear but this was better than I imagined. RS329 or Rose Rendezvous is a beautiful grapefruit color. It has a right amount of pinks and plums combines. I love how it complements PK 0002 Dramatic Mood Veil blush. This lipstick is one of the most unique shades in my kit. Walang halong stir!!
It goes on glossy and sheer but the color is very buildable. It also feels a bit moisturizing compared to my other glossy lipsticks. This reminds me of a glossy balm or lip butters that gives the lips that much needed hydration. This does not settle on the fine lines and has a good amount of staying power sans eating and drinking. This has no shimmers at all which I really like. My only concern is that this lipstick tends to bleed because of the glossy formulation. My solution is pairing it with a good lip liner. Of course, my trusted Nichido Rosette always saves the day. 

Here is an illustration from Shiseido Website on how this products works:

How it looks on my lips. I do feel that this lip swatch does not justify the true color of this lipstick but you can definitely see how pigmented and glossy it looks on my lips.
I forgot the price of this rouge lipstick. I will post it soon.

What do you think of this lates Collection from Shiseido?

Overall, I really love all the products and I have been using them almost everyday!!!
