Taiwan Haul

I recently went to Taiwan for few days and I am loving it so much! Taiwanese are very nice people and they are very helpful. Although their English is quite minimal, I still survived with my minimal mandarin plus body language.I went to Shilin night market, Xi Men Ding, Yehliu geopark, Taroko Gorge (which is really gorgeous) and of course Taipei 101. Here are some photos I snapped with my instagram (@memoiselle)

1. NARS blush in Deep Throat and Angelika

2. Discontinued OPI Nail Polishes in Show It and Glow It, Shim-merry Chic, Glow Up Already, Pink Before you Leap

3. Jill Stuart Nail Polishes

4. Jill Stuart Blush

5. Jill Stuart Eye Jelly

6. Laura Mercier Nail Polish

7. Shu Uemura Limited Edition Eyelash Curler

8. Shu Uemura Eyeliner in Olive

9. Anna Sui Rose Cheek Color

10. NARS  Eye Primer

I am looking forward to do write a review of them realll soon (hopefully 🙂 )

Whether it may be demure girly innocence, romantic and alluring, or sparkly hot and smoldering.

Alongside our colors is the launch of the stretch extreme precise finish waterproof mascara – giving you maximum stretch without clumping. All these with Japanese precision to beautifully separate and define each lash.


shu uemura iconic eyelash curler, beloved by many celebrities and make-up artists worldwide, will also be available in limited quantities in a premium 24k gold body.


Shu Uemura also launches two eyeliners; M Olive and M Copper Brown. I have tried this eyeliner and I must say I am impressed with M Olive. The color looks unique to me. I think dark green makes a good natural looking eyeliner; it won’t look as dark as brown or black but it would still make the bigger-eye effect.


From this collection, I am given a chance to try this palette consists of 1 blush and two eyeshadow color.

I have tried this and I must say that I am loving the silky smooth eyeshadow so much!!! It is one of the best shimmery eyeshadow that I have tried. I agree that there’s no glitter fallouts from this smooth and silky eyeshadow.

In my opinion, these glittering eyeshadow is best paired with a cream black eyeshadow. It would look WOW-ing 🙂

My overall opinion from this collection:

This is quite a big launch from Shu Uemura. Overall the collection is good and I am liking it. The silky and smooth eyeshadow is one of the best glittering eyeshadow I have ever used. It’s indeed smooth and give a shiny finish look. I am also loving the gold plated eyelash curler. I have been using Shu Uemura’s eyelash curler for years and I think for make up lovers, this is a must have item!  The eyeliners are also quite good. I am recommending M Olive if you want something different.

The new collection will be launched at all shu uemura beauty counters from June 2012 at S$22 per pressed eye shadow refill, $50 for extreme precise finish waterproof mascara and $32 for limited edition 24k gold eyelash curler.
