Shu Uemura Cream Eye Shadows

I gave you the deets on what to expect from our beloved Shu a few days ago! Here’s one further image of the brand new Shu Uemura Cream Eye Shadows!

Yummie right? These look incredible and knowing Shu they’ll be pigmented in a major way!

The shadows are already available at Nordstrom and will launch shortly on the Shu site.

Likey!

Wish list anyone?

Stash Spotlight: Shu Uemura Blush

Shu+Uemura

Do you realize that I used to have over 25 Shu Uemura Blushes? It was a disease I believe, that’s the only thing I could think of that would cause me to collect so many.

I started out my collection years ago but I’ve since swapped many of the blushes away when I started collecting NARS. I’m unsure why because I do think that Shu might top NARS very slightly in the blush category! But indeed, I use to have a fair few.

Today I’m proud to say I only have six. Phew. Jump ahead to spy my small stash of Shu blushes!

With names like P Red D32 you’re sure to completely forget what color is your favorite. This could be one reason I stopped purchasing Shu blushes, the bloody number and letter system confused this Muse. The blushes are all majorly pigmented so for those who prefer alot of pop with their blush you’ll find Shu makes some of the best around. They have quite an extensive catalog of colors so there is definitely a little something for everyone.

As I look at these I remember what fond favorites they were and are. I think I’ll take advantage during the next FF sale and indulge in a few shades I swapped away…the Muse misses them and feels a bit nostalgic.

Sneak Peeks: Spring 2009 and Summer 2009 Shu Uemura Collections

Hey guys!

Busy Monday for the Muse today! How was your weekend? It’s a gorgeous but brisk day in New York today, supposedly it’s going down to 16 degrees tonight…umm so much for Spring weather!

Even though the weather outside is frightful I can tantalize you with news of Shu Uemura Collections releasing over the new few months.

Check it out below!

shu+uemura+Cream+Eye+Shadow

Loving these! Available now, brand new Shu Uemura Cream Eye Shadows available in nine shades for $30 USD each. The waterproof formula comes in matte and pearl finishes. The formula supposedly lasts for hours without creasing or fading for all day, long wear.

Colors available are:

  • Black
  • Beige
  • Brown
  • Light Green
  • Sand Brown
  • White
  • Light Blue
  • Pink Taupe

These looks fab but I was a little shocked at the $30 price tag….seems a little bit much? But I have complete faith in Shu and I think they might be something special! We shall see! Looking forward to having a swatch and trying ‘em out for myself.

Shu+Uemura+Spot+Brightner

Now this I’m all over! You know how much I adore concealer of any kind! This is $45 USD and available in March. This can be used for precise application on age spots, acne scars, and dark circles.

Likey! Anything to cure my dark circles I’m all over and I like the idea of using it everywhere on my face not only under my eyes.

Here’s some sneak peeks of what will be coming soon from Shu Uemura this upcoming Spring and Summer, check it!

Coming in April, Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Pink Collection which will include lipsticks and glosses made from Pink Hybrid Pigment, one of the purest pink pigments ever discovered. Oooooo likey pink for the Spring, this sounds interesting!

In May Shu Uemura Painting Gel Liners will be released in nine shades. I’d love to see how these measure up to my HG liner, Bobbi Brown Gel Liner!

May also brings the release of Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse Shimmer which is a light weight mousse primer to even skin tone, tighten pores, and create a flawless, even finish for makeup.

In June we can partake of a new Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Bar themed as Lashes in Nature. I’m looking forward to seeing these. The collection is designed by Shu’s atelier team including celebrity artist and Shu Uemura artistic director Gina Brooke.

Overall, we have plenty to look forward to from Shu this Spring and Summer! I’m particularly eager to try the new cream shadows and spot brightener.

How about you?

Spring Collecton 2009: Shu Uemura Mirage Collection

You won’t hear me ranting about dark colors and unusual shades when you see the new Shu Uemura Mirage Collection for Spring 2009.

%E8%A4%87%E8%A3%BD+ %E3%80%8CMirage%E7%B6%BA%E5%85%89%E9%81%90%E6%83%B3%E3%80%8D%E4%BA%BA%E7%89%A9%E4%B8%BB%E8%A6%96%E8%A6%BA

Spring is an unusual time for cosmetics and you never know quite what you’ll get when new collections launch. Ideally I love softer, pastel shades for the Spring however that’s doesn’t always happen and sometimes bolder comes into play. However, this year I couldn’t be more excited about the Shu Uemura Mirage Collection which contains an array of softer colors that are most flattering to embrace the warmer weather when it breaks through the bleakness of Winter.

The collection is launching in Japan as of January 23rd however it’s arrival is already gracing the pages of Evil-bay! I got these images mailed to me this morning from an E-bayer whom already has a majority of the collection, at ridiculously jacked up prices, available for sale.

%E8%A4%87%E8%A3%BD+ %E3%80%8CMirage%E7%B6%BA%E5%85%89%E9%81%90%E6%83%B3%E3%80%8D%E4%BA%BA%E7%89%A9%E4%B8%BB%E8%A6%96%E8%A6%BA+PRODUCT

The collection includes four liner pencils in an array of softer, delicate shades such as pastel pink and purple. Also releasing are two limited edition eyeshadow trios which I’m quite excited about considering I haven’t seen a release of trios such as this since I picked up some released with the Shu Uemura Prism Collection. Also included are three new Glow On duos which include two contrasting shades of blush and finally a limited edition lip duo!

Whether the US will see any of these releases remains to be seen but at the moment it will release shortly in Japan to what the Muse expects to be great excitement as the collection is quite stunning.

All in all I can’t help but feel very Easter-like about the entire collection. Don’t get me wrong it’s extremely appealing but the shades remind me of fluffy yellow baby chicks and pastel dyed eggs……
