The SENSAI COLORS Collection, a new treatment makeup line consisting of 22 items for the eye, lip and cheek, is now available. Japanese
prestige skincare company, Kanebo, renowned for its exclusive, imperial koishimaru
silk-infused creams, lotions and anti-aging serums, expands into color this Spring with their skin-benefiting SENSAI
COLORS collection. SENSAI
COLORS were developed with famed Japanese makeup artist Hisano Komine, who
developed key looks for the line.
I've been given the chance to preview the SENSAI
COLORS makeup collection and it is truly fabulous. There are four sheer, layerable shades in each of the Eye Shadow Palettes ($50) and three color groups. The colors are based on the seasons. I've been using ES 01, Kigiku, browns and golds of autumn. Gorgeous with my blue eyes! And the eyeliner pencil? I've tight-lined and reverse-eyelined and I
absolutely love it. It's soft and smudgeable, gliding on like
The Cheek Blush ($45) offers the perfect amount of iridescence and light play. The precise layering of the colors in the compact is reminiscent of the traditional layering of the Japanese Kimono. The cheek color contains Airy Powder, which helps provide smooth, even coverage. The texture and feel of SENSAI Colors is simply incredible.
The glossy, plumping Deep Moist
Shine Rouge (12 colors/$40 ea.) and comfortably hydrating Lasting Treatment
Rouge (18 colors/$40 ea.) both draw on water, silk and other innovative, Asian
botanical ingredients, to keep lips kissable throughout February winds, and can
be applied over the innovative Lip Base ($26) for flawless, continuously soft,
SPF-protected lips. I don't know that I've ever worn such luxurious lip formulas; it feels like you're wearing a lip treatment.
