My first custom eyeshadow quad – Shu Uemura

With my recent Spring kick came an insatiable thirst for pastel eyeshadows.  I did end up with a few Dior pastel quads and palettes, however I still wanted a Spring palette that I could call entirely mine; colours selected by me, in shades and finishes that flatter ME!

So while I was picking up a bottle of their famed Cleansing oil (review to be up soon) the gorgeous eyeshadow bar at Shu Uemura caught my eye and the first thought that crossed my mind was SPRING PALETTE! Hahaha

Love how my mind works right?  😛

What I love about the Shu Uemura eyeshadows is that they have such a large variety of colours ranging from the lightest pastels to the most shocking neon orange you could ever find! Basically Shu Uemura is all about colour, bold, unapologetic colour.

The hardest part is usually deciding which 4 colours would come home with you.

So here’s a little guide to help you with purchasing Shu Uemura eyeshadows-

They come in 7 different finishes,

P- Pearl

G- Glitter

ME- Metallic

IR- Iridescent

M- Matte

Silk smooth

Cream

I picked two pearl shades, one metallic and one glitter.

P121- A soft peach, which was a shimmery pearl finish. Silky and blended so easily.

P 140 – A pastel pink, yet another pearl shadow. This was a cool pink.

ME 433-  A soft pastel shimmery green. It was the first colour I picked. This colour compliments olive skin tones so well, and if you are of that colouring, I highly recommend getting this one! From the three coloured shades, this one felt the smoothest. I love to pair this with orange or peach for a fresh Spring look.

G W-SV 909- A sparkling silvery white. This was one of the smoothest glitter eyeshadows I had ever encountered; One swipe pulled in a lot of product and it went on buttery smooth! I highly recommend this shade as well.

P.S- For those of you who are lusting over the Tom Ford glitters, but can’t justify the price tag, these are a good alternative!

The good thing about these is that you can never be unsatisfied with your palette, as they are all hand picked by you!

 

Product info-

Each single eyeshadow contains 1.4g of product and retails at SGD 22. I purchased mine at Tangs beauty boutique.

P.S- The cases are available separately and they come in a choice of monos, duos and quads. The quad palette also could accommodate blushes. So if any of those catch your eye, you could go for a blush and two eyeshadows as opposed to just 4 eyeshadows.

Happy shopping! 😉
