Shu Uemura x Maison Kitsune for Holiday 2015


You know we are nearing to the end of the year when beauty brands have started releasing the holiday collections. One of the brands that always catches my attention is Shu Uemura; every holiday seasons, Shu Uemura never fails to surprise me with the exciting collaboration. This year they have made another exciting collaboration with French designer Maison Kitsune.

The collection gives me a fresh spring vibes rather than Christmas’ party vibes. It’s interesting to see a brand releasing something rather unusual compared to other brands in the market. In this collection I am looking at lovely combination between pastel shades and deeper shades, and nothing too bold for me to wear.

In this blogpost, I have the Beauty Remix Smokey Eye & Cheek Palette in Plum.

A fun palette to play around and create an unusual smokey eyes. The palette has a mixture of plummy shade and orange-y shades. The colors are fun to create a young energetic look! In general, the shades has good texture especially the pearl texture. I found some fallouts especially on the glittery shades though, so I try to be more careful when applying the glittery shades.

The blush is a major surprise for me! It looks rather scary in the pan (screams: ORANGE!) but surprisingly it looks very wearable on my cheek. It looks peachy on my cheek and can also be worn as a contour cum blush to me.




Now onto the Drawing Pencil, here I have the plum and indigo. I love the color payoff of these two and how these are able to last on my lash line for a good 6 hours without smudging! The special Maison Kitsune design on the pencil is adorable too, I love the golden stamps details there.

The Laque Sparkler is one of the winner in this collection! I love how beautiful the color is and how opaque the color is on my lip. It takes me about two layers to get full opacity on my lip. Here I have the shade Plum Shimmer – a deep pink that leans towards red. It’s non drying on my lips and I like that I don’t need to retouch the color even after plenty glasses of water. It stains on my lip for a while, so at the end of the day I would clean my lip with lip make up remover.




a Shu Uemura collection wouldn’t be complete without the cleansing oil. In Maison Kitsune x Shu Uemura collection, the clensing oil released is from the Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil. By far this is my favorite cleansing oil! I’ve been using this range for a few years and Ultime8 range still secures a top spot in my heart. The oil is rich and it’s ultra moisturising, my skin feels well hydrated after my cleansing regime with Ultime8 range.

Get your Perfect Brow with Shu Uemura 3D Brow Styling

Hi Hello everybody!! It’s been a long time since I posted something here. I am so glad that finally I have some time to spare to update my blog and to share some of my beauty product related experience.

Recently Shu Uemura is re-promoting their Brow Styling Service. I was invited to try the service and to share what was the experience like. In this post, I am going to share some of Shu Uemura’s brow products and how I feel about Shu Uemura’s 3D Brow Styling service. So let’s start!!



Shu Uemura has quite a range of brow styling products and you will find these products applied while having your 3D Brow Session. The most popular product would be the brow pencil but hey, there are so much more to explore!

Shu Uemura believes that 3D eyebrow look can be achieved in 3 steps; it is by SHADE, DRAW and to COLOR your brow.


The first step is to recreate the shadow on your brow. This can be done using Shu Uemura Brow:ink. My eyebrow is naturally quite thin and light in shade. Brow:Ink is a real life safer when it comes to creating thicker looking brow and helping the color to stay longer! I use this almost daily as my brow base shade and with this, my eyebrow shade will last the whole day (read: 12 hours). Brow:Ink is retailing at $42 and is available in 4 shades.


I draw my eyebrow every single day whenever I am out of my house. A well defined brow gives me confidence although I don’t apply much make up on my face. Shu Uemura is famous with the hard formula brow pencil and I have been using it since many years ago. Although I use it interchangeably with few other brow pencils, it still remains as one of those brow pencils that I would repurchase.

Recently Shu Uemura releases a new version of the brow pencil, it’s called Brow:Sword. The hard formula will still be available though. Brow:Sword has a smooth texture and the the pigmentation of the product is better than the hard formula. The pre-set sharpener is also very helpful for us to resharpen the pencil without having to go down to Shu Uemura counter and having it sharpened there. I love Shu Uemura’s hard formula brow pencil but for the sake of convenience, Brow:Sword has been a very helpful item on my stash because of the pre-set sharpener. Another thing I’d like to mention here is that Brow:Sword is refillable! The refill is affordably priced at $28 and is available in 5 colors.

Below is the picture of Brow:Sword.



The last step of the 3D Brow Styling is to color. To achieve the natural brow look, Eyebrow Manicure is there to color our brow hair to mimic the color of our hair color.




3D Brow Styling Service

Shu Uemura believes that different brow style brings different power to express different human impression, and thus they are promoting 4 eyebrow styles. Most of the time, I would ask for natural style brow, but given these few styles to choose from, I went for Glamorous instead.

BeFunky Collage


I did my 3D Brow Styling recently in Isetan Scotts. I chose “Glamorous Style”. Glamorous Style gives a more defined eyebrow shape and when I draw a darker shade on my brow, it gives a more masculine look.

The brow service started with tweezing according to the brow style we requested. After the brow has been nicely shaped, the SA will nicely share with me on each products they use. Firstly is to shade using Brow:Ink. To create a thicker looking brow, Brow:Ink is certainly helpful to be used as the base color. It will help the brow color to last longer. Secondly, the SA would help me to draw my eyebrow to enhance the glamorous style I have chosen. Lastly is to shade my brow with eyebrow manicure, it gives a lovely finishing touch to my brow and making it look more natural.

Overall I am very happy with the service delivered by Shu Uemura brow styling specialist. They’re profesional specialist and they understand what I want for my brow. They are also very detail oriented in their work. One of the main plus point is that Shu Uemura has lots of counters islandwide and I can choose the outlet based on my convenience. The price point is also very affordable for a brow styling service.

Another thing I’d like to add here is that I don’t have to be exposed with “hard selling service” which I experienced in some other places before. I like the efficient service provided by Shu Uemura – I went down and get my brows done, that’s all. I don’t have to spend more time with the SA trying to sell me packages or future services. In this way, I feel more at ease and respected as a customer.


Shu Uemura 3D Brow Styling is available at Shu Uemura Counter Islandwide and it’s priced at $12 (for Shu Uemura members) and $15 for non member

Shu Uemura Drawing Pencil – Review and Swatches

When there’s not enough time for me to create an eye look with eyeshadow, Eyeliner comes as the choice for me to create a look to step up my look. There were so many times that I decided to try new pencil eyeliner and eventually it disappoints me because of its staying power and the mess it has on my eyes because of smudging.

Shu Uemura has recently launched a new and improved range of eyeliner which is called as Shu Uemura Drawing Pencil. Recently I was given a chance to try these and I have been giving it a test for a while, so here it is!





Here I have shade:

  • ME purple 71: Metallic eggplant (Metallic)
  • M chestnut brown 81: Warm, classic brown (Matte)


Texture and Pigmentation

Shu Uemura Drawing Pencil has a soft texture. What I like about this drawing pencil is how it easily sets on my eyelid. It glides on smoothly and the color sets of pretty quickly – even on waterline. The color comes out perfectly on the first glide too.

Staying Power

I think the staying power for Shu Uemura Drawing Pencil deserves more attention. I have been using Shu Uemura drawing pencil for the past one week and the result has been consistent so far. The eyeliner is smudge free, budge free and it stays for long hours. I have been trying many pencil eyeliners and it includes the previous Shu Uemura eyeliners – they did not work on me. But the newly reformulated Shu Uemura drawing pencil has changed my perception on pencil eyeliner, they can be smudge free for long hours. Typically this stay smudge free for about 4 hours (please note that non liquid eyeliner usually only stays for about two hours on my lid)

Metallic or Matte?

In general, both of them performs equally well. But in terms of pigmentation and staying power; matte shade has better pigmentation and staying power. Metallic shades are perfectly smudge free and budge free but the staying power is slightly lesser (typically about an hour less than the matte shade).





Final Thought:

I highly recommend Shu Uemura drawing pencil for its long wearing hours and its smudge free formula. If you have ever felt hopeless with eyeliner before, give this a try! It’s been quite long since I have given a try for non liquid eyeliner and it works this time (yay!)



Shu Uemura drawing pencil is now available islandwide
