I have been testing out the Shiseido Hydro-Power Shadow in Glistening Sand-H9.
This is a very light airy silky textured cream shadow that glides onto my lids with little effort. Though it is sheer and shimmery, it is easy to tone down or layer up for a more intense look.
Glistening Sand is a pale golden shimmering champagne shade. It is almost fool proof to apply with the sponge applicator that is provided or with my fingers. For this reason it has become my most reached for shadow of late.
This bit of Shiseido magic does a brilliant job of making me look more awake. I think that it is the cream to powder formula that makes this shadow last and last without the need for a base. I shall not question the magic! It works and that is good enough for me.
