Shiseido Maquillage Face Creator in 11

Woohoo, yesterday I received the 'compensating' refill of the Shiseido Maquillage Face Creator in 11. I had been a bit dissapointed with my last Maquillage Face Creator buy (post here), because the colours were not flattering on me at all.

This compostion of colours are a much better one. It has a mix of cool and warmer tones...


Here is the beauty out of its box...As you can see, it has a lilacy white colour on top, a peachy pink at the right side, a white colour in the middle, a taupy brown below and a brownish bronze on the left. (click on the pic for a more detailed vision)


Although I am not as enthousiastic with the palette as the first one, the Maquillage in 33, I still like the variety of colours. However, some colours appear to be somewhat eyeshadow-like imo (the taupy brown below). Also, the colour in the middle is a bit too opaque and frosty to apply full-handed on your face, so it should be dosed with a light hand.


I absolutely love the peachy pink on the right side and the bronzy brown on the left side. They will make wonderful blushing and shading colours for my complexion. And I think I can use the colour below for other shading methods, or as an eyeshadow. The lilacy white on the top will make a wonderful brightener on the days that I have a sallow complexion.

I still adore the buttery soft consistency of the Maquillage Face creator palette, as it was the reason I fell in love with in the first place with the 33 palette (and the reason I ordered soo many other colours).

Where to buy this? I bought this refill at ichibankao when they had the Maquillage sale ($38.50). I found a good deal on a refill on facial-shop.com for $32.99, including shipping: they have the 11 (this one reviewed for today) ,colours 33 (my fave) and 44 (Kathi's fave). It is also being sold at adambeauty.com right now for $33 (without shipping). You can also find it on gooddealer.com.

i think this is a great blush, i find that it's easy to over apply because it's so pigmented

I love 33--it's the one I first purchased. Fuzkittie has 11, and it looks good on her, but I think that you are even paler, so a light hand is called for.

This is really a great blush/contouring product!

Hehe you have so many of these!! They're great! The brown color in this palette is so perfect for me for contouring.. but yea probably too dark on you. Thanks for the different site links, I want to get 33 o 44...
