Formulas differ too, obviously. Nice is an eye gloss -- a gel-cream formula, not too liquid (it's thicker and much more blendable than Ellis Faas pens, for example), which sets to a feel much like Chanel's Illusion D'Ombres (i.e. not fully to powder, but not particularly slick or creamy to the touch either, just enough to grip the glitter on the lids with zero fallout or creasing). Ghost is Shiseido's usual soft, silky shimmery-satin powder (note its tendency to kick up and shed gossamer fairydust everywhere).
I'd written about/swatched Ghost before, but these pictures are a much better representation of its complexity -- taken in high summer sunlight (well, for London) rather than cold morning winterlight (yes, winter extended to April....in London).
Both are absolutely packed through with complex, multitonal sparkle (I spy lime, pink, gold, periwinkle and ruby at least), which overlays an even stronger multichrome effect where each catches the light at the centre of the swatch -- shifting Nice more oysterishly pink and Ghost more lavender.
Interestingly, and highly appropriately, Ghost looks subtler and more of an insubstantial grey satin in brighter light (it really comes to shimmering, complex life in low light, or layered over a dark shade as I did in my previous post). In full sun, Nice drops her already scanty beach coverup to reveal the blingtastic showgirl within -- at once delicate shimmer AND wetlook gloss AND insanely faceted discoball sparkle.
There's definitely room in my heart/stash for both. But duh, Nice is my favourite. Because lookit *_* It is the opal sparkle in the middle of my lids, the coppery rose closer to my lashline and that banked-coals ruby dot on the centre of my lower lashline. Now that's a chameleon.
A look at both eyes at once, for even moar angles -- see how Nice looks all white and new-snow-sparkly at my very inner corner and warmly rose-glittery by the middle of my lower lashline?
Other eye makeup: Rouge Bunny Rouge Grey Go-Away Lourie smuged along lashlines, and Solstice Halcyon in the socket, Fasio Full Dynamic Volume mascara. (Full look here.)
The other side of Nice is a bland, shimmer-free warm pink lipgloss, with a faint candy scent. Not horribly sticky, nor remotely long-lasting, very sheer, it's...quite nice (the adjective, not the place in France) but I sincerely doubt anyone reading this lacks a basic sheer pinkish lip colour, so we'll nae mair o that.
