I was saddened to hear that Mr Shu Uemura passed away. His great skill and innovative ideas in the cosmetic world will be sorely missed. He was an artist in ever sense of the word!

Shu Uemura’s Spring Collection: Rebirth

RebirthMain New 268x306
Mr Uemura’s newest collection is up and available for purchase if you’re wanting to get a head start on your Spring Collection Shopping!

I think I may wait or just skip altogether on this one. Lovely colors in the pressed shadows and the blush are nice enough I guess but I know at least three other Spring Collections that are much prettier!

Shu’s "Simple" Gift Sets

The lovely Mr Uemura has granted us three Holiday Wishes with some lovely gift sets in Simple Sophistication, Simple Glamour, and Simple Drama!

Ok..so…hate to say it….total snore for me. These aren’t exactly something I need or want. Colors are really washed out and the price is a little tiny bit scary (wouldn’t be that scary if the colors were a bit more vibrant).

I guess if you love really natural looks this is a great palette for you. As for me, I’m skipping ‘em.

I see only four brushes pictured but I think you’re getting six total brushes (ok so this is starting to sound like it’s worth the price tag now!) plus you’ll get a compact holding two shadows and one blush and finally a pouch to hold it all in. I might have to take back my earlier comment about it being a bit too pricey maybe this isn’t so bad after all! But colors oh god the colors….can’t we get something with a bit more sparkle and something more festive for the season!? I heart you Mr Uemura but I’m not so keen on washed out browns, grays, and blacks!

Shu Uemura Gloss Lacquer Review

Count the Muse confused. When she originally discovered Shu’s Gloss Lacquer she could have sworn it was a limited edition product but low and behold it’s still quite up and available at Shu’s website as well as Sephora so I guess I somehow went wrong somewhere!

Picture+037

The good news is that this stuff is like crack for my lips and I adore it. The bad news is it’s bloody expensive at $26usd per a pot thus making me feel like I’m on crack when buying a pot of this stuff! Who in their right frame of mind purchases $26 lipgloss? Don’t answer that.

Three colors are available of this fabulous gloss two of which your Muse owns and keeps in her beauty vault the third would be a color called Invincible Pink.

Gloss Lacquer is exactly what you’d expect after seeing/reading the name. It’s so glossy your lips have the lacquered effect. Surprisingly this stuff is a snap to apply. Normally any lip product in a pot always causes me heart failure, drama, and general stress during application but this warms on contact with my fingertip and smooths on easily.

My lips thank Mister Shu Uemura after using this brilliant stuff! I especially love that I don’t have to stain my lips or use a lipstick beneath. The actual gloss isn’t all that pigmented but for some reason or another upon application my lips just pop with really nice color! Slick, glossy, and perfect this is well worth the $26 bucks!

Now..if they’d only make some more colors I’d be quite happy hmmm……
