The model’s eyes look very challenging to reproduce, but if this palette can do this, I’m game!

Ooooh….! I love Shu Uemura powder foundations and this is SOOO cool!! I found this on the Japanese website. It’s black (A Shu first!). It’s natural. It’s powder (oh how we all love powders. Liquids melt right off here in humidapore). And most importantly, it’s got the original Shu Uemura logo. No funny fat funky logo which they were trying out a couple years back. So glad that didn’t work out.
Ok. I’ve tried the original Shu Velvety Perfect powder and I must say it’s really a wonderful product. The powder is so smooth and fine it glides on like a second skin. And it doesn’t clog pores like the M.A.C ones.
I hope this comes to Singapore. This is on my definitely will buy list.
We seldom see such great visuals from Guerlain. The model looks like a cross between that Kose half ang mo model and some other classier ysl face. But overall, Guerlain has pulled off the look well. Her hair is great. There are no blood shot eyes (Cosme 2 months ago – what were they thinking!) and nothing appears terribly wrong. But this too borders on boring. I still love the androgyny of the Shu Uemura chick that my boyfriend kept insisting was a guy.
Speaking the obvious, this Colour Collection looks more Fall than Spring. But oh that lipgloss… magnificient texture. Skin – boring. Eyes – normal. But the lips… it’s so hard to miss. We all want lips like this. And to achieve this look, I (and Guerlain) recommend KISS KISS gloss in that exact shade the model’s wearing. Find it and it’s a keeper.
What’s even better are the coloured lip balms with SPF 15. I recommend buying all shades. You can never have enough lip protection.
Both products contain cotton seed oil as a softener, Squalane (a moisturising oil derived from the olive) as a moisturising agent, and vitamin E for its antioxidant and moisturising properties.
A Soft Oriental Floral that is more suggestive than overt, heightening a natural sensuality and casting a spell of intrigue. A more sensual and intimate interpretation of the ALLURE fragrance. Warm, voluptuous and mysterious…and yet luminous and airy.
I like the smell. The bottle. The brand.
