Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura Planet Cat

Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura Planet Cat 111

Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura Planet Cat is a brand new, limited edition collaboration before Shu Uemura and Japanese fashion designer, Tsumori Chisato.  I generally get excited for Shu releases but this particular collection has me ecstatic.   Tsumori Chisato classical take  of kawaii really shines through in the design of each piece. For reasons unknown to me I was thinking this might be exclusively available within Asia so you can imagine my delight when I seen it pop up on both Sephora and Nordstrom.

Madonna’s Eye-Conic Look From Shu Uemura

Madonna+Eye Conic+Look+From+Shu+Uemura
Whether you love her or you hate her it’s unquestionable that Madonna is a style icon. From her flair for fashion, her eye for accessories, and of course, most important for the Muse, her minimal yet dramatic makeup she reigns in the realm of chic and classy.

Artistic Director Gina Brooke created Madonna’s most recent look for her Sticky & Sweet 2009 Summer Tour and you’ll be quite delighted to know how easy it is to do for yourself!

Click it for the details!

Madonna’s look was inspired by her hit song “Ray of Light”, Brooke, who has been working with Madonna since 2002, transforms Madonna’s eyes by applying a mix of crushed, small flawless diamonds and white eye shadow to her lids. The results is a bright and sparkling glow!

Brooke uses Shu Uemura Press Eye Shadow in ME White 905 to provide a soft, light reflecting, diamond-like effect. Brooke uses actual diamonds to surround Madonna’s eyes of course we can’t all afford to snag ourselves some diamonds. To duplicate the effect try using bindis which you can find in any number of small Indian bridal shops or online at www.bindishop.com

Brooke feels that any woman of any age can wear a shimmery, ethereal shade like ME White 906 from Shu. “A little sheen helps enhance the eyes and instantly gives a younger appearance. Modonna is always up for trying new things and I think all women should feel comfortable experimenting and enhancing their beauty….” states Brooke.

In 2004, Brooke collaborated with Shu Uemura to create a pair of custom made mink lashes for Madonna. In 2006, she took the idea to a revolutionary level by creating a pair of diamond and minkencrusted lashes for Madonna. After overwhelming interest from consumers, the Shu Uemura lashes were created and sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus for $10,000 a pair.

Sparkling white shadow and diamonds always make me think of the crisp frozen Winter, Ice Queens, and Christmas. I love this look as the weather grows colder but sadly the Muse is fresh out of 10 g’s for the lashes but she doesn’t mind indulging in Shu Uemura ME White 905 and a pack of $1.50 bindi brow stickers to duplicate the look and you can too!

Beauty Muse: Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil

muse

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil is pretty incredible stuff and one of my favorite ways to remove makeup. Can you improve on a perfect product like this?

Beauty Muse Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil with me today and tell me how you’d make it better if you could.

Is it already perfect for you?

Would you change the packaging?

Would you want a new, improved formula for your skin type?

Some sort of scented cleansing oil?

What ways would you take it and make it better?

Click ahead to see my Beauty Muse for Shu Cleansing Oil!


Being one of the few cleansing oils available on the market in the US, Shu Cleansing Oil is as perfect as perfect can be. Removes makeup (even waterproof mascara) in one swipe, makes skin smooth and moisturized, plus has plenty of added perks and benefits with use over time.

Seems the ideal product and not much to change about it.

As for me I would change the price ever so lightly. Although a large bottle lasts me for close to 8 months to a year, the price remains sometimes a bit too high. A 5oz size will run you $32 and the light larger 15oz will set you back $72.

I can get a 32 oz Philosophy Purity on QVC for under $30 bucks.

You see my point?

As fantastic as Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils are the price needs a little work. That’s how I’d improve it.

How about you?

Is it perfect as is?

Needs some tweaking?

Tell it!

Lastly this biottle features a mix of monotone checkered patters and a Tokyo kamon girl amidst a spray of energizing orange.

Each bottle is whimsical, sweet and worthy of a peep. I was thinking of picking one or two up and when I’m through with the oil inside I can always refill after repurchasing my normal bottle of cleaning oil from Shu. I can’t help myself I’m a fan of manga and these are too cute to pass up.

Anyone haul?
