Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eyecolour
Colour not as expected.
This is not the medium azure blue as illustrated. It is a dark sea green / teal type of colour. A little goes a very long way, when blended in, but is not the clear, bight blue I am searching for. Cream shadows are not easy to find and like this one, are mostly expensive, so I was very disappointed with this purchase.

Why The Limited Shade Range, Boots?
I have no issue with the formula of these cream eyeshadows. Formula-wise, they are some of the best cream shadows available; like creamier versions of MAC Paint Pots. My issue is with the limited colour range available.
All the shades currently on boots.com date back to the original 2011 collection, with BR709 Sable being the only neutral (v. pretty). Although some of these shades are now being phased out, I don't ever remember seeing the more popular neutrals from this collection on the Boots website, like BR306 Leather and GR707 Patina (although they are still available at other major chains). Shiseido released 3 colours in the Spring 2012 collection (again, still available elsewhere), 8 colours in the Spring 2014 collection and 4 colours in the Spring 2015 collection (available elsewhere). To my knowledge, NONE of these shades have ever been sold online at Boots. Most recently, Shiseido released 5 gorgeous neutrals in their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection (my favourites being BR731 Kitsune, BE728 Clay & GR732 Binchotan). All 5 shades can be purchased at ANY major store that stocks Shiseido but - once again - none of them are available on boots.com. To summarise, boots.com has missed the last 4 collections of Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Colours. [.....Please Boots, at least TRY to keep up!]
