As I headed over to the Cooper Square Hotel to see the Shiseido presentation, I had no idea what I was in store for but I knew it would be an amazing fall presentation. Upon entering the penthouse, there were a few skincare stations and everything was numbered. I enjoyed walking through each station that integrated a pre-recording of what I was prepping to see, which then allowed me to chat with the appropriate consultants that were staffing the space and then a chance to have the products used on me in terms of makeup. I began the tour learning about their silky Bio Performance Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream and Future Solution LX Ultimate Regenerating Serum and the importance of staying hydrated (and of course staying well rested). Shiseido utilizes many of the Japanese elements that I have come to love when it comes to ensuring that my products have all natural items in it that boost your skin without stripping it.
There was a fab moment during the audio tour that Dick Page, Artistic Director had an amazing video installation that talked about how his love for fab skin and makeup could also be translated into food, shopping, music and so much more. As we ended the skincare portion, I loved learning about the Perfect Foundation Brush that works well whether you are using powder or cream to create that flawless red carpet look that we all want. As I moved into the back of the penthouse, I loved being able to see a number of the hues from light natural tones to those that were more dynamic in eyeshadows! Via the audio tour, Dick Page shares his inspiration behind each hue and I love that by listening to it, I can see exactly what he's describing and how he got there. Above you can see all the shades and I selected 3 of the darker tones - my fave. I selected Patina (11 - an amazing greenish/gold), Tin (14 - a silvery greenish hue) and Caviar (16 - an inky black shimmer that yes was created because he loves caviar). There are other fun hues that are reminiscent of a leather couch, baby doll blues and so much more. What a fun experience!
