Message For Spring/Summer
Shiseido’s Artistic Director Dick Page has created Shiseido Makeup Spring & Summer 2010 to complement the hot-off-the-press fashion looks. “The collection provides a selection of classic ‘wardrobe colors,’ as well as surprising, distinctive shades to excite and attract new customers. For Glowing Matte, my inspiration was softness, smoothness and a delicate, lightweight ‘veil’ of color,” Mr. Page explained.
Shiseido Makeup Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte Lipstick is the newest addition to the Perfect Rouge collection. It lightly envelops lips in natural, semi-transparent color with a subtle, diffused finish. Formulated with Shiseido’s Smoothing Matte Powder, it also includes translucent red pigment, micromatic color pigment and super hydro-wrap vitalizing DE. The lipstick provides a chic finish that lasts for hours and is priced at $25.00.
Shiseido Makeup Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer Lipstick, new to the Perfect Rouge collection, delivers sheer color with a high-quality sheen. It also improves dryness, roughness and flaking to give lips a full, moisturized look. The lipstick contains translucent (red, orange and yellow) and micromatic color pigments to reflect light and create a more vivid, translucent color. Super hydro-wrap vitalizing DE, satin smooth pearl and dual optimizing powder produce a more casual lipstick look but more natural than a gloss. Four shades of Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer Lipstick are priced at $25.00 each.
Shiseido Makeup Luminizing Lip Gloss moisturizes and plumps lips with color that shines
without stickiness for hours. The gloss contains satin smooth pearl, super hydro-wrap vitalizing DE, dual optimizing powder and translucent red/yellow pigment in the new, liquid gel base.
The gloss features a specially-designed brush by Mr. Page that is structured with the ideal amount of firmness to grab just the right amount of gloss for application. It can precisely outline the contours and corners of the lips and apply gloss to the broader areas of the mouth. Eight new shades of Shiseido Makeup Luminizing Lip Gloss are priced at $22.00 each.
Long-lasting color is available with Shiseido Makeup Luminizing Satin Eye Color. Satin meets softness in the formulations with powders that contain satin smooth pearl, micromatic color pigment, super hydro-wrap vitalizing DE and dual optimizing powder. There are five shades of Luminizing Satin Eye Color to be worn together or separately and priced at $25.00 each.
Radiant, healthy skin is achieved with an application of Shiseido Makeup Luminizing Satin Face Color. Each shade stays true without fading for all-day wear and allows for effortless customization of color intensity. The formulation contains satin smooth pearl, micromatic color pigment, super hydro-wrap vitalizing DE and dual optimizing powder. Six new shades—four blushes and two highlighters—are each priced at $30.00.
Shiseido Makeup Sheer Matifying Compact SPF 22 is a new complexion finish that is formulated with ultra-fine powder. The foundation camouflages skin imperfections with an oil-free, ultra-fine powdery formula and leaves a sheer, matte finish for up to 12 hours. Its Micro Mist Technology, a Shiseido exclusive, creates ultra-fine powder particles that protect against skin roughening and has a feather-light, silky texture. Super oil-absorbing powder and a Micro-Smoothing Complex minimize the appearance of shine as well as enlarged pores and acne scars. Matifying Compact SPF 22 comes in 11 shades for $38.50 with $30.00 per Refill and $8.50 per Case.
All of the SKUs for Shiseido Makeup Spring & Summer 2010 are available now at fine department and specialty stores nationwide and at www.sca.shiseido.com.

Clarins has met the demanding requests of customers who want precise, even coverage and
long-lasting wear in their foundation. Charged with that request, Clarins’ researchers developed Everlasting Foundation SPF 15 which delivers a flawless finish for 15 hours.
The formulation’s High Fidelity System, an invisible micro-veil, is combined with new generation silicones that are highly compatible with the hydrolipic film of the skin. Excess sebum is absorbed with 100% natural white clay. The foundation’s combination of ingredients allows perfect adhesion to the skin’s surface so pigments don’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles.
Everlasting Foundation SPF 15 also contains a plant-based micro-patch that offers time-released hydration. A molecular shield forms on the skin’s surface to seal in essential moisture, while a “reservoir” provides continuous hydration over time. Clarins’ “Light Optimizing Complex”
optically erases fine lines and wrinkles, and its soft focus pigments capture, diffuse and amplify light. Triple protection against UV rays, free radicals and pollution shields the skin using white tea anti-oxidants and mineral sunscreen filters.
Clarins’ Everlasting Foundation SPF 15 comes in eight shades for $35.00 and is now at department and specialty stores and at www.clarinsusa.com.
Maesa Group partnered with Urban Outfitters to extend the specialty retailer’s reach beyond apparel, furniture and novelties and enter the world of beauty. Urban Outfitters focused the line as an extension of one of their private brands, Kimshi Blue.
“We were very pleased at the opportunity to interpret Urban Outfitters’ signature look into cosmetics and fragrance,” declared Ludovic Bertron, Creative Director of Maesa Studio. “Urban Outfitters’ marketing team asked us to create something ‘industrial’ and rough-looking but wanted to be upscale and maintain a feminine touch. They loved the antique bulb atomizer that we presented to them, so we used this component—classy, edgy and feminine at the same time—as the focal point of the entire line.”
For the launch, Maesa created eight SKUs consisting of lip balms in various flavors, an eye quad compact kit, a 4-color mini lipstick kit, a 6-color eye and lip palette, a 100 ml Eau de Toilette and a mini 10 ml rollerball.
Laure Pellarin, Director of Packaging at Maesa Beauty commented, “For the secondary packaging, we were provided with a swatch of metallic fabric, a staple of Urban Outfitters’ Kimshi blue brand. Mimicking the look of that fabric was a challenge in development. Having an in-house comp studio that could articulate and test our ideas was a huge advantage. With Maesa Studio comps,” Ms. Pellarin continued, “we could provide clear direction to the paper mill with the exact process we wanted. In the end, we created a proprietary paper, custom embossed and printed with a digital scan of the original fabric itself.”
She further noted, “We also decided to recreate the Kimshi Blue ribbon, which is part of the apparel labeling, to make it consistent with their collection.”
The beauty line ranges in price from $8.00 to $35.00 and is at all Urban Outfitters stores.
