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.

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

Shu Uemura Takashi Murakami Enchanted Black Parallel Palette



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.



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 :)



Thank you for reading!

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!
