I'm getting bored with my neutral/minimalistic look everyday, so I decided to use a few of my Shu Uemura blue eyeshadows which hardly ever gets touched.
In general, I love how pigmented and soft Shu Uemura eyeshadows are compared to my MAC eyeshadows. It's a pity their variety gets a little dull, and some of their limited edition eyeshadows aren't as good as their permanent range. But anyhoo, Shu eyeshadows are pricey in Singapore. For S$37, you get about 2.1g of product which is definitely more than MAC eyeshadows. but quantity is never really the issue. The packaging is. It's completely non-functional, and after some time they get horribly flimsy.
For today's look, I'm going to be using 4 of their eyeshadows from their permanent range
First up, P White 900 (Pearl)
a basic white
On the inner corner.
ME Blue 600 (metallic)
Amazing coral reef sea blue colour
On the middle and outer corner
ME Blue 650 (metallic)
A darker blue
Finally, IR White 900 (iridescent)
Looks white on pan but has a gold undertone when swatched
Blended out the harsh lines above the crease... appears as a light green/gold tint
After mascara, eyeliner... the finished look
Used MAC Way to Love Lustre Lipstick on the lips and Shu Uemura P Amber 83 Glow on Blush on the cheeks
All the gear used
I labelled the 2 white eyeshadows so I don't get mixed up. Although one is labelled as tearduct and another as highlight, doesn't really mean I use it like so. I just get confused between the two.
Now I'm figuring out how to store my depotted eyeshadow pans. I've been googling right left center, and now debating if I should get the unii cosmetic palette. It looks functional and cute but there are 2 issues that's inhibiting me from making the purchase. 1, it's a bit pricey at $29/palette and 2, I hate gaps in between my pans. However, at S$95 for a Shu Uemura Boutique Palette, I can't be too choosey.
I was also looking at the Trish McEvoy palettes as well and I'm not sure if they fit Shu Uemura eyeshadows exactly. But they say that you can fit 8 eyeshadows on each level. It's pretty neat at $25 and cheaper than a unii palette too!
