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

Shu Uemura Takashi Murakami Enchanted Black Parallel Palette

IMG_9071

IMG_9074

I picked this up in Changi airport two weeks ago. I couldn’t resist myself getting this palette as the texture of the eyeshadow is so soft and smooth when I swatch it. The eye and cheek palette is available in two colors – enchanted black parallel/ full pink parallel palette. I picked the enchanted black palette as the palette offers more vibrant shades.

IMG_9072

IMG_9075

The eye shadows in this palette are incredibly soft and smooth. There are two types of formulation of eyeshadow in this palette; the pressed formula and the silk smooth formula. There are 4 shades of the  pressed formula eyeshadow which comes in a bigger pan.The silk smooth formula comes in a smaller pan and there are 3 shades in this palette.

The pressed form feels powdery and smooth, I love the softness and smoothness of their pressed eyeshadow. The shades are nicely pigmented and i can hardly see any fall outs.

The silk smooth eyeshadow has a different feeling compared to the pressed when it is touched. The silk smooth eyeshadow has a creamier texture but it doesn’t feel slippery or wet. It has better pigmentation compared to the pressed formula and it is very smooth. I agree that Shu Uemura named this eyeshadow formulation as silky smooth. It is as smooth as silk :)

Here’s the swatch of the eyeshadow in order of the positioning of the shades in the palette.

And now here’s the swatch according to the formula:

Pressed Formula

Silk Smooth

 All the shades in this palette are nicely pigmented and they have beautiful texture. I find the colors here are nicely combined especially for smokey eye look. I really love the dark green shade; the metallic shade is so gorgeous. I love to use dark green to create a smokey look as it is less dramatic but yet it still gives a bigger eye effect.

Final Thoughts:

Overall I love this palette for their vibrand colors and beautiful texture and pigmentation. I love the range of eyeshadow colors which are not too neutrals but at the same time it offers shades that I would wear quite often. The silk smooth eyeshadow has gorgeous pigmentation with no fall out. Moreover the blush shade is something that I would usually wear. There’s no reason for me to dislike this piece :)

Shu Uemura Tokyo Lights Palette

Hello everyone!

Have you ever wanting a practical & cute design for your everyday eyeshadow? The eyeshadow palette that will fullfil your everyday eye makeup needs? If so, you need to read my review of Shu Uemura Tokyo Light Palette :)

Today I bring you a Shu Uemura eyeshadow palette in Tokyo Lights. I believe this eyeshadow is a Japan exclusive, however this is also available on Singapore Airlines Krishop or Cathay Pacific Marcopolo. I bought this palette when I travel with Cathay Pacific. I doubt this palette will be featured on the inflight magazine for a long time, so I suggest that if you know that you or your friend are travelling with Singapore Airline/Cathay Pacific, go and get it :)

The Packaging:

Shu Uemura Tokyo Lights comes in the usual Shu Uemura eyeshadow case. The design of this palette is very cute; it looks very kawaii! I love the pink prints of Tokyo towers and that twinkling lights. It reminds me of the beautiful lights in Tokyo at night. The palette does not comes with any mini brush or sponge. The design of this palette is just simple and practical.

The Color & Texture:

This palette has a beautiful combination of 6 neutrals eyeshadow shades. The colors are mostly shimmery  but the darkest brown is a matte shade. The palette consist of a matte brown shade, a shimmery dark chocolate brown, a shimmery champagne pink, a shimmery soft woody brown, a glittery gold and a glittery white shade. The shade

The texture of the eyeshadow is very soft. There’s a minimal amount of fallout which doesn’t really annoys me. I really like the softness of these eyeshadow. The feeling of swiping my finger on this eyeshadow pan is like touching a velvet pouch :) No, I am not kidding! This eyeshadow is REALLY SOFT!  It is also very buttery and smooth. The pigmentation of this eyeshadow varies among the shades. The glittery shades are leaning more towards sheer. The rest of the colors have great pigmentation; the color shows up even in just one swipe.

As you can see, the shades are so beautiful. They are nicely pigmented, buttery and super smooth. I have lots of neutral eyeshadow palettes on my drawers, but I dare to say that this would be one of my all time favorite! The packaging looks so cute yet not too big for my make up pouch. I can bring this on my every day make up bag for my day and night eye look :)

 

Final Thought:

To sum everything up, I just can say that I am totally in love with this eyeshadow palette. I know it might me difficult for many of you who wants to get this eyeshadow. I hope that this eyeshadow is still available on Singapore Airline/Cathay Pacific Inflight Magazine. If you know anybody is travelling with these airline, you might want to ask them to get this for you :)

 

So what do you think of this eyeshadow?
