This season, Shu Uemura releases an eyeshadow palette consisting of neutral shades. While there are so many brands which have released this kind of neutral shades palette, it’s exciting to know that a brand as big as Shu Uemura has finally decided to release a neutral palette too!
All the shades in this palette is non limited edition shade, you can find it in the store and buy it separately. The palette also comes with dual ended brush with synthetic hair.
The palette consists of mixture of matte shades, glittery and shimmery shades.
And here are the shades as shown at the back of the palette.
As you can see in the codes above, there are a few color code; G for glitter, M for Matte, ME for Metallic, IR for Irridescent, P for pearl, S for shimmer.
I must say that all the metallic and pearl shades in this palette have very good quality. They are soft, buttery, well pigmented and very easy to apply. I experience no fallouts for the metallic shades. However I find that some of the Matte & Pearl shade lacks of pigmentation, the color doesn’t show much on my skin when swatched. I also experience fallouts on the glittery shade when applied; it feels so smooth during swatch but upon application on my eye, I can see some fallouts.
There are 16 shades in this palette and it also comes with dual ended synthetic brush. The palette is retailing for SGD 160 in Singapore; it means that you are paying $10 for each shade. A very good deal for Shu Uemura singles I’d say!
Overall, I would say that Shu:palette is a lovely palette for neutral shade lovers. The palette also comprise of darker colors specially on the bottom row to make the palette looks more vibrant and can be used to create smokey eye. There are endless possibility to layer on colors and creating looks with this palette. If you haven’t had any neutral shades artist palette or if you are neutral shades hoarder, you should consider having this palette specially for the value of each shade.
The palette is now retailing at all Shu Uemura counters in Singapore at SGD 160 with limited quantity
