Shu Uemura Holiday 2014 Collection x Karl Lagerfeld – Shupette

Here we are coming into the last quarter of the year. I can’t believe time flies just like that and Christmas collection has started to flow in. This year, Shu Uemura launches a holiday collection together with Karl Lagerfeld with a Shupette theme. Shupette is the snow white long haired pussycat princess created for this collection.

The collection consists of many items, but in this post I’ll focus on few items as photographed below.

Now let’s start with the star of the collection, Shupette has it all Lip & Eye Palette. 

This palette won my eye sight for the cute shupette print at the front. It’s made of mirroring metal and it also comes with a fury white pouch. The fury white pouch makes a good compliment for this palette – it fits perfectly and matches the theme.

Shupette has it all Lip & Eye Palette consists of 8 eyeshadow shades and 6 lip shades.

Here are the eyeshadow shades in the palette (starting from top left)

E1: is a black

E2: this shade is described as dark grey but on my swatch below, I can see that there’s a mixture or grey and violet shade.

E3: burgundy brown with some silver shimmers

E4: described as Toffee shade –

E5: this shade is called as shupette blue – it’s a light cloudy blue with metallic sheen.

E6: described as cool grey, looks like white to me and it also has a metallic sheen finish

E7: rosy shade with metallic finish

E8: light beige champagne with metallic finish

 

L1:Lip bonbon magenta

L3: Lip bonbon violet

L4: Lip bonbon pale pink

L8: Lip bonbon salmon pink

L5: Lip bonbon deep red

L2:Lip bonbon baby pink

I must say that the quality of these eyeshadows varies. Some shade performs much better than the other shades. Shade E1, E2 and E3 are smoother and pigmented than other shades. Some of the other shades are just quite dry although the colors are very pretty.

Neutral eyeshadow always attracts me no matter how many similar shades I have in my stash. Marc Jacob Style Eyecon in Starlet consists of 7 shades leaning towards neutral shades. Some shades are leaning towards grey tone and some are leaning towards nude shades. In this post, I am going to do a quick review of this eyeshadow palette. Scroll down to see more :)

The description of the shades here is taken from Sephora site:

Eye shadows in metallic muted lilac

  • metallic champagne pink
  • metallic dark copper brown
  • metallic bright copper
  • metallic gold
  • metallic bluish silver
  • metallic gunmetal gray

The shades in this palette has shimmery and metallic finish. On my skintone, I would translate the shades into this:

  • The first shade from the left is  a light taupe shade with silver shimmers
  • champagne shade with silver shimmers
  • Espresso shade with golden shimmers
  • Orange Bronzy shade with silver shimmers
  • Green golden shade with silver shimmers
  • gunmetal silver with metallic finish
  • medium toned silver with metallic finish

All the shades here have great pigmentation. The shades pops out on the first swatch and the color glides on easily. The quality of the eyeshadow in this palette is lovely – all shades are buttery and smooth. Upon application, I can barely see any fallout. The swatch posted above is swatched on my bare arm, without any primer! I am very happy with the outcome of the shades. Comparing this palette to The Vamp , I would say that Starlet has more even consistency. The shades in Starlet has more consistent quality.

 

Final Thoughts:

For anyone who wish to try Marc Jacobs Style Eyecon, I would recommend The Starlet for its consistency. The shades are considered neutrals – these are easy to wear without being too nude or boring. I personally like metallic shade on my eye hence this palette is a yay for me.

Chanel Les 4 Ombres #232 Tissé Vénitien

IMG_9772

 

There has been many times that I am telling myself that I don’t need more eyeshadow in my stash. Then I went to Chanel counter and explored the eight new quads and neither I know that I would fall in love so much with the Tisse Venitien.

At first glance, the new Les Ombres eyeshadow looks like a normal baked Chanel eyeshadow which I don’t really like. But after touching it and try it on myself, I must say that I am impressed with the quality and formula. I decided to pick Tisse Venitien just because the smoky green and the sparkling silver is just too beautiful to resist.

Tisse Venitien emphasises on metallic green hues. Here are my description of the shades in the palette from top left.

  • Top Left: dark green with grey hues and also metallic silver
  • Top Right: soft pink with rose gold shimmers
  • Bottom Left: metallic khaki shade with silver shimmer
  • Bottom Right: dark gunmetal grey with green hue.

The quality of these eyeshadows are lovely. They are soft, buttery and very well pigmented. All the swatches above were only done in one swipe and the colors pops very nicely. Generally these eyeshadow is easy to apply as they are very smooth and easy to blend. During application, I feel that the metallic khaki has some fallouts – so I make sure that I apply the silver eyeshadow in tapping motion. The rest of the shades were fine – there was nothing much fallout that I experienced.

In the picture below, I used the metallic khaki shade as the base shade all over my lid. And then I applied dark green with grey hues on the outer corner and bring it out and blend it out. To accentuate the look, I add the gunmetal grey around my upper lid and lower lid and blend it.

I think I have fell in love with the new Les Ombres. The texture and pigmentation is superb! I don’t think this would be my last palette ;)

YSL Couture Palette #7 Parisienne

This Summer, YSL is launching newly designed and reformulated eyeshadow palette  Couture Palette. This range of eyeshadow is created to capture the essence of Yves Saint Laurent. The range consists of 11 shades – ranging from soft shades to colorful and bold shades to play with. I have with me no 7 Parisienne to show you, hope you enjoy this post :)

IMG_9726.jpg

 

IMG_9728.jpg
The packaging of YSL Couture Palette is the same as the previous eyeshadow palette – encased in luxurious gold casing with the iconic YSL logo. The colors presented in Parisienne is inspired by the twilight of parisian apartment. The colors in this palette are exceptionally girly in a captivating way.

The shades in this palette are very girly, sweet and the colors are easy to wear. The shades are shimmery but without giving any over shimmery look. The shades in this palette are mostly sheer, not too pigmented. It’s such an easy to use palette without having to worry that you’re applying too much products

IMG_9728.jpg.jpg

  • The base color is a light taupe shade with shimmers
  • Highlight shade is the frosty soft pink – I recommend to dab your brush lightly into this shade as dabing into it too hard will create a too frosty finish
  • Shade 1 is a brown – purple shade, this shade has less shimmer and it is less frosty compared to the other shades
  • Shade 2 is a light plum shade with shimmer
  • Shade 3 is a shimmery pink, at some lighting it looks a bit lilac to me.

IMG_9731.jpg

 

Swatches according to the shades: B – H – 2 – 3 – 1

 

IMG_9730.jpg

 

The shades in this palette could never go wrong. My personal favorite shade has got to be shade 3. It’s such a sweet and natural shade without being boring. I love how this shade brightens my overall look without making me looking washed out.

Although most of the time I would opt for a more pigmented shades, I would say this is one of the sheer palette that has won my heart. Wearing the shades are not a chore at all, not to mention that there’s no fall out at all. I applied the shades using eyeshadow brush and the eyeshadow sets easily and stays for a good 5 hours with no signs of fading.

I did a simple look with Parisienne. Please pardon the eyeliner on my eyelid, I wasn’t being patient to wait for my liquid liner to dry :)

If you have not checked this range yet, you should! The range of colors are beautiful and pretty wide, so there should be one that catches your attention ;)

Chanel Illusion d’Ombres in Utopia & New Moon

 

IMG_9670

 

Chanel has released its Reflets d’Ete de Chanel Summer 2014 collection worldwide. In this collection, there are three illusion d’ombres being released for the collections; they are mirage, utopia and new moon. I picked up Utopia and New Moon as they’re limited editions; Mirage is a beautiful shade too but I decided to wait.

 

IMG_9665.jpg

IMG_9666.jpg

 

Initially Utopia did not really catch my attention when I saw the promo picture. But once I visited Chanel counter and swatching it, there’s no turning back. It’s a sparkly lilac shade with medium intensity of color. It’s a sparkly shade which I will use as a base or an eyeshadow on its own. I don’t think I have any similar shade of illusion d’Ombres that looks like Utopia.

IMG_9669.jpg

IMG_9668.jpg

 

New Moon is a gorgeous sparkly bronze combined with purple. I seriously think that I don’t need more browns or bronze eyeshadow shade, but after looking at the beautiful sparkles, how could I ever resist such beautiful limited edition shade?

As some of you may know, Chanel Illusion d’Ombres range is one of my favorite product ranges all the time. I love how soft and bouncy the texture is. Not to mention the beautiful sparkles that Chanel never fails to bring. Utopia and New Moon have once again won my heart.

IMG_9672.jpg

IMG_9671.jpg

 

This is how Utopia and New Moon look on my eye. I like both shades – Utopia, with its shimmering lilac shade instantly brightens my eye look. New Moon on the other hand, creates more noticeable eye make up look because of the intensity of the shade itself.

Have you picked anything up from the collection?
