Shu Uemura Blush M Soft Pink 325 Swatch and FOTD

Holla!

Today I want to show you my first ever Shu Uemura blush. I have never bought any of Shu Uemura’s blushes but this one caught my attention. I don’t own any soft pink blush hence when I saw this, I immediately sold.

The main reason that stops me to buy Shu Uemura’s blush is the packaging. I find the packaging unattractive and too simple. The case is very lightweight which is obviously not my favorite part of a makeup item. Shu Uemura sells the makeup case separately. This case can also be used to hold two eyeshadows.

The texture of this blush is very nice. It’s buttery, very easy to blend and very soft. The blush is matte; there’s no shimmer at all. I guess this range would be suitable to ladies out there who are not a big fan of shimmer.

M325 is a very soft pink blush. Although this color is very soft and almost doesn’t show on my skin, the color is buildable. In my skintone, this blush needs to be applied 2-3 times to show up the color. I am not a big fan of soft pink blush but this is a nice choice to complement my blush collections :) In the swatches below, you can see how it looks on indoor lighting and direct sunlight. On these swatch pictures, I swiped the blush 3 times.

As you can see, the color looks quite pale on my skintone. Honestly it’s not one of my favorite cheek color, but sometimes wearing a different color might be a nice thing to do :)

I did a look with this blush, what do you think?

28 days of Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin Experience

Hello all! It’s been more than 28 days that I have used Tsuya Skin from Shu Uemura. I have posted my 7 days experience with Tsuya Skin hereI have shared my thoughts about Tsuya Skin there :)

In case some of you still wondering what it Tsuya Skin, it’s a new skincare from Shu Uemura that’s launching in September island wide in Singapore :) It’s a serum that shall be used after you cleanse your face. After applying Tsuya Skin, let it absorb for a while and you may go on with your skincare regime.

I am giving a quick update on what I feel after 28 days of using Tsuya Skin :)

After 14 days of using Tsuya Skin, I admit that my skin looks more radiant, reduced the size of my pores and my skin feels softer. But after 28 days, honestly it didn’t give much difference anymore. The radiance is still there and it looks the same. However I noticed that it become a little bit softer than before. There’s no much difference but I think Tsuya Skin has done the job.

In conclusion, I think Tsuya Skin is a worth trying product. The texture is soft and it smells very nice. It doesn’t smell to strong but it leave a fresh feeling :). I do see some difference in my skin especially on the radiance and on the reduction of the pores.

Are you going to try this product?

Thank you for reading :)

 

 

 

All That Glitters Frantic Romantic & Hole Hearted

Time for a indie nail polish post :)

Currently I am a big fan of glitter nail polish. If you have been following our instagram (@memoiselle) , you’ll notice that we have been spamming our instagram with glitter polishes lately. Although glitter polishes are such a pain to remove, I just love staring at those pretty blings on my nails.

I bought these polishes from MeiMei’s Signature . All That Glitters is created solely by Kirsten from USA.  All varnishes start with a base and only glitters, micas or pigments are added to the mix until perfected.  The collection is very limited and precious due to time-consuming production (hand mixed each bottles) and long process to source for essential ingredients. All materials are “3-Free” meaning they do not carry toluene, formaldehyde and/or dibutyl phthalate. All products are cruelty free as well.  Mei Mei’s Signatures is exclusive stockist for All That Glitters in Singapore. (information taken from Meimei’s Signature website)

Frantic Romantic

Frantic romantic is a pink based glittery polish with purple, white and pink glitters. The glitters vary in shapes such as hex and hearts. The polish is really cute :D

I love pink based glittery polish because I can layer it over other polish or just use it by itself. Glittery polish is also great to be used in gradient manicure.

Hole Hearted

What a unique name! Hole hearted is a mixture of black round and hex glitter combined with heart shaped white glitters. I bought this because it reminds me of Lynderella Connect the Dots. I know it’s almost impossible for me to get that polish so I am looking for something similar to it.

All that glitter Hole Hearted is very nice to be applied on top of bright colors. In the swatches below, I applied Hole Hearted on top of OPI Don’t Talk Bach to Me from OPI Germany Collection. It’s quite difficult to reach the heart shaped glitter because all the heart shaped glitter are drowned at the bottom of the bottle. However this is not a big problem as I will put the bottle upside down so it will be easier for me to reach the heart shaped glitters.

NARS Cordura Review and Swatches

I can’t wait till NARS arrived in Singapore! I am sure many of us feel that :) I am a big fan of NARS blushes, I have reviewed  NARS Orgasm and NARS Angelika before. I can’t wait to get my hands on more NARS blushes. I also think that NARS eyeshadows are great. They are very well pigmented and they last very long. 

I bought this eyeshadow from Barneys when they had free shipping promotion. I had a difficult time choosing their wide range of eyeshadows. I had NARS Duo in Underworld before and greatly satisfied with the quality and color. I wanted to have NARS duo in brown color and I really didn’t know which one to get. NARS has so many duo eyeshadows and I think I want too many of them. But finally I picked Cordura :)

 

Cordura is a mixture of bronze with mini golden shimmer and a dark taupe color with mini golden shimmer too. NARS Cordura has amazing pigmentation. It’s very pigmented even on the first swipe. It’s very easy to build the color on the eyes. For people who need to have a fast make up in the morning, I think this is a great choice. It took me 5 minutes to do the whole eye makeup.

The eyeshadow is also very long lasting. Yes I used a primer before I applied the eyeshadow, but still I think it’s amazing. I applied the makeup at 7.30am and when I reached home after dinner at 8pm it still stayed there! No smudge at all! Too bad I did not take a picture of me at the end of the day to show you all.

As much I as want to say how perfect this eyeshadow is, I still found a downside of Cordura. When I applied the eyeshadow in the morning, there are some fallouts which is annoying. I need to swipe the fallouts and make sure that my face is clean before I apply my moisturizer and sunblock. Although this is not a big downside, I would still hope that this will not occur.

In the swatches below, you can see that there’s very fine golden shimmer in both colors. Both colors are applied with my finger. I swiped my finger twice on the pan. 

I did a look with NARS Cordura. I didn’t take a picture of my whole makeup face because I was in a rush. I hope you still like it :) I am sorry my eyeliner does not look very good in the picture, it’s the result of a flash makeup :p LOL

have you ever tried any NARS duo eyeshadow? Which one is your favorite? :)

I hope you like this post and thank you for reading.

Have a great week ahead lovelies XOXO

 

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Acqua Collection

So happy that finally I am able to write a post on Eyes to Kill Acqua Collection :)  I am sure many of you have read the reviews of this collection. The review of Acqua collection has been flooded everywhere in the beauty blogosphere. I must say that Acqua Collection is superb! The Eyes to Kill range is fabulous and worth a look.

I bought 3 shades from this collection. Honestly there are more colors that I wanted but I stopped myself at 3 pots. I don’t think I need to introduce how gorgeous the pigmentation of this eyeshadow is. It’s buttery smooth and long lasting! :)

#25 Rusted Gold

As a fan of browns, Rusted Gold definitely caught my attention. It’s a mixture of gold, and copper black. It’s a gorgeous color to be worn itself. What I love about this color is that when swatched, it does not come out as a gold but rather a coppered gold.

#27 Oxidised Silver

This is a very unique color. It’s a mixture of coral and silver. It looks very pretty in the pan. When swatched, it turned out to be rather pink with a dark purple tone.

#28 Red Platine

It’s a mixture of gold and red. When swatched, it looks more towards gold brown to me. On me, I think this color needs to be mixed with other darker eyeshadow. Otherwise, my eyes would look swollen :p

In the picture below, you can see the swatches under indoor lighting and direct sunlight.

I did a look with Red Platine. You can see the color looks natural but I would prefer to mix this color with other darker eyeshadow to make my eyes look bigger.

Eye Makeup:

Red Platine, Shu Uemura Eyebrow Pencil, Revlon Eyeliner, Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Cheeks:

Blush Horizon de Chanel , Urban Decay Buck from NAKED Palette as a bronzer, Urban Decay Sin from NAKED Palette as a highlighter.

Lip:

Chanel Rouge Coco Allure in #23 Discrete

 

I hope this post helps :) Which shade do you like best?
