Don't get me wrong, Shiseido is a great brand of makeup and has been around for quite some time! About two years ago, I was the counter manager for Shiseido within Macy's. I sold their products but I also, couldn't sell anything that I hadn't tried myself. With that being said, compared to the other brands that are out there, some being even less money than Shiseido, this eyeshadow has very little pigment and has a very short wear-life to it. Unless you are looking for something that only lasts a couple of hours during the day, I would highly suggest picking a different makeup brand of eyeshadow.
