Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio BE213 Nude & BR307 Strata: Review & Swatches

Shiseido Luminizing Satin Shadows are a very nice silky buttery eyeshadow. BE213 on L, BR307 on R. I love their texture and luminous nature but they have such a limited range of colors I would love to see more. The ones I’ve tried all have this depth to them from the luminosity it’s quite nice. They blend well.

BE213 Nude is very nude. It will not add much color to your lids. I like it for a no makeup bare look but it adds some luminous quality to your lids. Plus if you’re like me I hate when my lids get sticky without shadow/powder so I have to have something on. This will be that very naked look. The shades are all shimmery. It has a light beige, pink and champagne. I put the pink in the center of my lid on top of the beige which I use all over the lid as a base. Again very naked.

BR307 Strata is a deeper nudes palette. All shades are shimmery. It has a dark chocolate brown, warm medium golden brown, and my favorite is the pale highlight shade. It’s a complex greyed beige with pink/gold shimmer. It is what I wish MAC Vex could be texture wise, that’s the closest shadow color I can think of that’s similar. I wish they made that highlight as a single. Later this week I’m going to check out the Shiseido counter when I visit OKC again and see if they have a single that’s similar.

These seem to use that slurry technique where they press liquid shadows into their molds which is popular in Japan. Shiseido and Surratt have similar textures for that reason I think.
