I was walking, innocently, though Selfridges when the Shu Uemura girl accosted me to show me the Paloma Faith collection.
I like this Shu sales girl – she’s dozy but completely sweet and charming so before I knew it she had used their newest palette, Morphorium on my eyes and I have to say she did a great job.
Here is the Morphorium look, which uses the Blue Palette, and some of their new Limited Edition pigment pots (I believe Khaki was used on the model below for the area just near her brow):
I like these limited edition palettes Shu Uemura brings out but – they’re gorgeous – but a bit too samey. I own about 4 in total and they’re all so brown-gold-neutral. The Blue palette is fabulous because it’s a bit more risky, and quite funky!
The price of these has also fallen to £39 which is reasonable for such a pretty palette:
There’s two powder shadows in rich purple and a rich ocean blue. There’s also a yellow highlighter, a cream chocolate brown liner/base and a cool toned sparkly pink blush. You also get 2 decent applicators in the pack.
Swatches! They are pretty pigmented (buildable also) and just a really lovely selection of the colours and textures. The blusher is on the pale side for me – it DOES leave a slight flush, mind you but it is also VERY sparkly.
Still this is a really pretty set from Shu and I reckon it’ll be handy to carry around with me since I love these blue and purple tones.
This is the other palette from the collection which is browns – very pretty but not as interesting in my opinion:
I also bought a blusher which I thought would make a really pretty highlighter or a base colour for eyeshadows.
This is P Gold 94. It’s more of a light white peach with gold sparkles through it.
Have you bought any of the Shu Palettes?
