SHISEIDO – Shimmering Cream eye Color BK 912- Caviar- Review/FOTD

Posted on Feb 19 2013 - 12:57pm by agnibanya
Hey all, 
As most of you know, I’ma Smokey Eyes addict and to build a good smokey eye effect, I was on a hunt for a nice creamy base. Tried a few, and zeroed in on Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color- BK 912, CAVIAR and here’s my review on the same. (this btw, is also my Valentine’s Day gift from hubby :) )

Shimmering Cream Eye Color

DESCRIPTION:

A lightweight cream eye shadow with a radiant, lustrous finish that maintains a just-applied fresh look for 16 hours without smudging or creasing. Applies easily with your fingertip for a smooth, even finish. Hydrates skin with Super Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE. 


INR 1600 for 6 g


This eyeshadow had been on my mind ever since I had first swatched it in Sephora when I went there for the first time (around the time it was opened). I had absolutely fallen in love with the product and it won over my other options which were MAC’s Blackground Paintpot and Chanel Ombre D’ Illusion Mirifique. Though I may still buy the others that I mentioned but right now I’m totally happy and satisfied with the performance of the product.

Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color BK 912 Caviar is a gorgeous Cream eyeshadow with lovely Green and Bronze Shimmer. On the eyes though, the shimmer is not exactly visible but gives a gorgeous shine especially in ambient lighting.

They are packaged in a sleek and lightweight pot with a screw Lid which represents the Brands logo. It surely looks classy and is very travel friendly.

The Eye Color is creamy to apply and can be build up more a more intense effect. I love the way this one gives ample time to blend  without setting and unlike many creamy eyeshadows(Read Color Tattoos from Maybelline and MAC’s Paintpots) they DO NOT give a dry look to the lids. 

On me this stay for about 4 hrs(without primer) after which I noticed minor creasing (I have Oily lids!!). With a primer, it stayed for about 8 hrs and then there was slight creasing and fading. When topped with a powder eyeshadow, all of these are resolved and you get all day wear. It is definitely going to be my most used base since I love doing smokey eyes and I love the way this one .

Also, the product life is only 24 m, It wish it was longer than that…. can’t finish it in 2 yrs, ..err..maybe I can try :)

I use it with both fingertips and a brush depending upon my mood, and it performs equally well in both cases. 

It’s surely expensive but if you are an eye makeup addict like me, you’d love playing with this baby…It’s a gem of a product. 


I’m now looking forward to buy a gold and Bronze shade in this.

    Paint Pots have really smooth and creamy textures, but this is even creamier..I didn't like the Maybelline ones too much as well….I felt they made my lids look wrinkly, hai na??

    You try this Bee, its a must have for smokey eyes..

    I bought Caviar recently and like you, I'm a convert from Blackground.
    Caviar is simply a superior product, as far as I can tell.
    I'm glad to see others feel the same way.
    And your photo is stunning.

    Thank you Sylvia :)
    Yes, this one seemed better out of all the options that I had shortlisted, and I'm yet to try those , but this is by far the best cream eyeshadow I've ever used :)
