Shu = Meh

1161_lg_sq

Maybe I’m just a cranky cow, but I made my way to the Shu Uemura counter today to lookat the Mika Christmas collection which looks super stunning online. Only 2 palettes were left: This one looks dull but it’s actually quite nice and the third colour across, a rose bronze is utterly stunning. Winter Sakura […]

Shu Uemura Instinct Collection

Recently, though I have liked what Shu has to offer, I haven’t loved it. Infact the last few collections over the last year have been hit and miss; too dull, too hard, too chalky. I was ready to pass on the Instinct Collection too but then….I found out one side was a cream eyeshadow! I […]

Cleansing Oils

688_lg_ver1

Cleansing is such a pain in the butt – maybe some of you enjoy it. Because I use things like primers, super waterproof mascaras and creamy blushers, I need something that will take it off! take it all off! I was introduced to cleansing oils by Shu Uemura. The first time I ever had it […]

Shu Uemura Beauty Tools

Shu uemura make some of the best beauty tools out there – not just the brushes (oh, Kolinsky brush, how I love thee), but actually tools. Like man tools, but better…

Sunday Haulage Porn…

…not actual porn, ok, get with the lingo! I don’t know whats wrong with me. I have started to use terms like Stash, Make Up Porn, Hauls etc. etc. My brain is shrinking, if in fact, it could have shrank anymore. Anyway. What’s better that a load of pictures of new stuff right! Anna Sui […]

The Multi Talented Palette!

So in my last post I had bought a £8 Shu Uemura empty palette to put my lip sticks in. This is not the first time. I love the idea of the project, but when it comes to it, I DO NOT, ever, get a lip palette out and carefully apply a lip colour with […]

Shu Cream Eyeshadows

My local Shu counter ain’t as alluring as it used to be – I haven’t been wowed by the brand for a while. Fancy my surprise when I went to have a look at my counter and spotted some new cream eyeshadows! Totally new range they said! There were around 10 shades in total. I […]

Shu Uemura Art of Hair

Shu Uemura have a snazzy range of Hair Products (which can be viewed here. Shu Uemura does hair? Well, all the Japanese ladies I know do have banging hair. There is the Shampoo, Conditioner range, and also the styling range. With the styling range, the first concept is to – Unify – with a Depsea […]

Shu Uemura Quad

I found this little gem on HK Facial Shop. I already have this limited case (which comes as an empty) from 2007 collections. This one came with four shades already loaded – I tried picking them out but ended up smudging the yellow instead so I will try again when my paws, I mean hands, […]

Pop Beauty Palette & Shu Lash Applicator

The weather is finally starting the cheer up here in England; its nicely warm and bright, is it nearly spring?! I finally did the exercise DVD I bought in January (ahem) and I nearly died after the warm up and first work out. I didn’t even attempt the boxercise section or the stretches because I […]

Haulage Pics & Thoughts

So over the last week since I’ve been away I’ve had random haulage…I might have posted these before. My brain it like batter at the moment so if I have posted 3 year old lipstick forgive me. But as far as I remember this stuff is new. Yes, they are still boxed. But then again […]

Cream Eyeshadow Special Part 1

PART ONE: Cream Eyeshadows So, I was told a year or so ago that I could not wear eye make up so I decided that a compromise was in order and made it an excuse to load up on cream shadows! Yeah! So I do have a strong love for any type of cream product. […]

Make Up Maestro Shu Uemura Dies at 79

Shu Uemura, has died aged 79 in Tokyo. He rose to fame in the 1950s when he became a Hollywood Make Up Artist, and there developed his famous cleansing oil formula, to remove heavy stage make up. He was said to have kept a few drops of the original formula to this day, “for inspiration”. […]

Shu Uemura Gold Mode Collection

I normally go nuts for anything Shu but I am not loving this years Christmas collection: The model looks good (why does Shu ALWAYS use western models?) but the actual product range is so-so. The packaging is heavy grooved gold – think of Estee Lauder, and there are two eyeshadow/blush duo’s: The other set has […]

Shu Uemura Eyeshadows

My first love will always be Shu Uemura! I’ll never forget when I was 18, going to London and seeing the old shop in Covent Garden and all the multi coloured plastic cases stacked up. I was overwhelmed! I bought (and could only afford one) and I still have it today, – ME 555, a […]
