Shiseido Moisturizing Eye System Eye Shadows: Sun Dance

This was purchased some time between 1984 and 1988, probably 1986 or 87.  It is a trio of coordinated shadows and originally had a double-ended sponge tipped applicator.  The shadows are about half gone, and had to have the dried out surface worn off a bit before they could be used.  The exterior has some damage, but the interior is in excellent condition.

Swatches were done with a q-tip on unprimered skin.  The colors appear quite warm, but they are still quite wearable for those (like me) with cool-toned skin.  There is a lid color, a liner/contour color, and a highlight color.

Love the packaging on this! I can totally see a woman in a power suit with enormous shoulder pads pulling this out of her purse.

Shiseido has been one of my favorite brands for a long time though not much has survived in my cache, having been used up long ago. It was the only powder foundation I would use back in the day, and the lipsticks had the best texture of any I tried. I need to revisit the line when I get some spare cash - the new eye shadow trios they have out right now look simply gorgeous!
