I had a big day of shopping and high tea with my lovely mother on Saturday - I don't know how people can spend the entire day in the shopping centre without getting a headache! The lights are so sharp. A couple of weekends ago, my partner and I were lucky enough to have been chauffeured to Richmond and Katoomba for a foodie filming session, I of course, wore Shu ;)
SHU UEMURA PLAY DATE - WATER SLIDE BLUE
A very simple limited edition palette with childhood-inspired shades in metallic and pearl texture. The case is reusable and can fit 3 other pressed eye shadow refill shades and 1 glow on cheek blush.
The pressed shadow shades are Dark Purple, Aqua and Soft Purple. The blush is Pink Shimmer.
The eyeshadow shades are quite pearlescent - especially the lighter shades. The texture is creamy and easy to blend. Pigmentation wise, the shades are true to the colour you see. As for wear time, it would last for about 4-5 hours, I find lighter shades to have shorter wear time. It's a pricey little palette, but if you are a shu lover and enjoy pastel shades, this may be something for you to consider.
SHU UEMURA DRAWING PENCIL - PINK
This pencil is perfect to draw on your face or as an eyeliner, it's very creamy, very pigmented, does not transfer, true to it's colour and best of all... WATERPROOF!
The pink remained on my lids for a whooping 14 hours, a lot of blinking, watery-eyes business and eye rubbing after naps. It's damn sturdy, however it was relatively difficult to remove and required makeup remover.
SHU UEMURA ROUGE UNLIMITED SHEER SHINE - GUILTY CHERRY
A very pigmented and smooth lipstick. When applied generously, it will give you a beautiful deep maroon look. I have been using lipstick as a tint (see video), giving me a true "just bitten" look. The tint is very long lasting, non-drying on application and survived my first meal. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome, this is definitely a keeper!
Although it is non-drying on application, I would still recommend for users to top it off with a lip balm. It's "non-drying" but it's not the most moisturising either.
