Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Amnesty!


To celebrate the launch of Shu Uemura’s new cleansing oil (POREfinist – which I am currently trialling!), they will be hosting a Cleanser amnesty! For one day only – the 1st of May 2014 at the Shu Boutique on Monmouth Street, London – they will exchange any cleanser – ANY CLEANSER – whether it is full, half full or empty for a 50ml travel size bottle of one of their cleansing oils (you will be […]

A Lightbulb Moment? Shu Uemura The Lightbulb Fluid Foundation 554 Medium Sand Review!


Getting Shu Uemura’s newest foundation offering, The Lightbulb Liquid Foundation, got me thinking about my previous experiences with Shu Uemura bases.  I have used their Nobara cream compact and stick foundation – both are quite heavy bases and I have never really tried any of their more liquid textures.  The Lightbulb foundation is like it sounds; a liquid base to make the skin look luminous and radiant.  The foundation is ideally to be used with […]

Review: Shu Uemura Tokyo Brow Station in Selfridges


To be truthful, I’ve never done a whole lot to my brows because I guess I have been fairly lucky in that area – they’re not too thick, not too thin, and have a very definite natural shape which I just tidy up every now and then, when I realise I’ve started to look like someone who never leaves the house.   So I am a bit brow lazy.   I have tried waxing – […]

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in BG911 Review and Swatches


I have had many many good experiences with Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited lipsticks – their Supreme Shines are gorgeous but the packaging is cack (all mine cracked). Fast forward and Shu have released a new range of Rouge Unlimiteds – 44 shades to be exact! I purchase one of these a while back off the internet (so I was buying blind) and went for BG911, a nude beige. The outside packaging of Shu is in […]

Lips of the Day: Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine Lipstick Swatch in PK 345


It’s funny how you can love a brand then you sort of forget about them? It’s like that with Shu Uemura.  I’m not tempted by any of their new releases at all – why is that? Their Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine lipsticks are though – completely gorgeous but absolutely not faultless. Annoying, eh?  Still a week or so ago I treated myself to a new lipstick from the collection (and I forgot what other shades […]

Shu Uemura Goat Hair Foundation Brush No 18 Review


I had my beady eye on the Shu Uemura Goat Hair foundation brush for a long, long time. I finally saw it with a decent discount on eBay and went ahead and purchased the No. 18! This brush is unusual for a foundation brush for so many reasons! It’s a short handle, its a small head, it’s stubby and sort of more of a blusher brush, it has goat hair which is quite rough etc. […]

Mini Haul: Shu Uemura Pressed Shadows & How to depot Shu Uemura Eyeshadows


On a recent trip to London I went to the Shu Uemura shop (the website selection is poor and so is my local concession) in Covent Garden. It was my intention to pick up some new shades that I don’t already have. Shu Uemura released some new shades in 2009 but since then it’s been quite quiet for new solo pressed shadows (they seem to be focusing on the palettes for new collections instead). I […]
