Hauled it: Shu Uemura Morphorium Blue Palette & Pretty Highlighter P Gold 94

Shu-Uemura-morphorum-blue-.jpg

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 […]

Celebrity Collaborations; Paloma Faith for Shu Uemura Collection, Yay or Nay?

Paloma-Faith-For-Shu-Uemura-Selfridges-Beauty-Hall-2.jpg

I had a brief look on the Shu Uemura counter yesterday and got cornered by a SA – a very sweet SA and ended up making some purchases. I also saw the Paloma Faith collection which is an exclusive to Selfridges! I love Paloma Faith! The collection is made up of a Rouge Unlimited Lipstick (£19.50), black gel eyeliner (£19.50) and limited edition lashes (£55) and palette (£57) for a collection with a classic 50’s […]

Shu Uemura Takano Miracle Cherry Blush Tint Review & Swatches

Shu-Uemura-Takano-Blush-tint.jpg

I liked the look of the Takano collection from Shu Uemura, especially this Miracle Cherry Blush Tint. Unfortunately it wasn’t released in the UK so I had to scour eBay for it. This took FOREVER to arrive. A month. It was ordered before Christmas and seemed to be sucked into a postal vortex. Tip: If you order an international parcel with a tracking number (it doesn’t have to be an expensive EMS service either) you […]

Shu Uemura Takano Lip Duos Tint & Gloss; Love Apricot, Harmony Pink & Passion Red

Shu-uemura-lip-dup-tint-Gloss.jpg

When Shu Uemura had 20% online before Christmas I pointed Mr C towards the Takano Limited Edition Lip & Tint Pots as I wanted the Apricot and Pink versions for Christmas. Later on, I went to the counter and swatched them all and wasn’t keen on Love Apricot or Harmony Pink, instead I liked Passion Red the most! D’oh! So I bought that for full price there and then. The packaging is so cute! Shu […]

Shu Uemura Gem Glam Glitter Pressed Eye Shadow Review & Swatches

Shu-Uemura-Pressed-Eye-Shadow-Rainbow-Glitter.jpg

Before Christmas I paid a visit to my local Shu Uemura counter…ah memories. I used to spend many an hour on the counter playing with make up with some amazing artists they used to have. I bought every colour of eyeshadow they made. I picked up these two Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadows in their new(ish) glitter formula. There’s 4 choices, gold, silver, bronze and rainbow. I bought two (£14.50 each!)… I chose ‘White Rainbow’ […]

I wanted it, I hauled it! Limited Edition Shu Uemura Highlighter in Steam

Shu-Uemura-Steam-Blusher-Highlighter.jpg

Ever pass on a Limited Edition item only to regret it, then find it impossible to find one later? I had this kind of regret with this pretty Shu Uemura blusher/highlighter called STEAM a while ago. Steam was from the Autumn/Fall 2008 collection. I spotted it and passed up on it…then saw it on eBay for just a little more than the retail price. Hurrah! Steam is a pale light white-peach with micro sparkles. The […]

Pre Holiday Treat: Shu Uemura Florescent Fall mode, the Dreamy Petal Palette

Shu-Uemura-Palette-Dreamy-Petal-Palette-.jpg

Another pre holiday pick up – I had a little gift voucher so I decided to get a little present for myself before my hols! I ended up choosing this Limited Edition palette from Shu Uemura! It’s a whopping £49 – expensive but it is pretty and has everything I need in one place which is exactly what I wanted. The lid is pretty but not too pretty to make the palette unusable!: Inside you […]

I’ve got a crush on you: Who is your current Brand Crush?

Crush-Six-pack.jpg

It’s a good job I don’t treat my make up like I treat my men, otherwise the current Mr Candy would’ve been replaced 10 times over by now. Go and grab some Pj’s and ice cream, cos I want to talk brand crushes with you (again)… As long as I’ve liked make up I’ve had brand crushes. On one hand I probably have something from most brands you can name, but I also go through […]
