Shu Uemura revisited

I'd barely touched on the Shu Uemura makeup range, quite a few years back I had a foundation, concealer and two eye shadows but as it was a difficult brand for me to get hold of I moved on. My recent successes with the Shu Uemura Art of hair range pique my interest in the makeup again.
I bought shadows (£14.50 each) in Iridescent Beige 800 and Metallic Green 450. They are not the normal colours I would choose but I thought they would pair nicely together and it was an attempt to veer away from my normal variants of taupe.

IR Beige 800 is a golden iridescent shimmer on me rather than beige. ME Green 450 is a vibrant olive green with golden shimmer. The shadows are as soft as I remember them and apply and blend well, I would say that a bit of the colours vibrancy is lost at the end of the day.I also bought a cream shadow (£18) in the shade P-Brown. This is slightly shimmered beige brown with a touch of warmth. The consistency is quite lightweight compared to other brands, I don’t get any creasing when used over a primer and powder shadow applies with ease over it (I find with a lot of other brands cream shadows if I go to apply a powder it just won’t blend in).

I bought these items from Beauty Expert.


  1. It's a shame that Shu Uemura isn't more popular or widely available because their products are fantastic. I have that cream eyeshadow too (in pink) and several eyeshadows (I put together a palette). Great stuff.

  2. Hi Cafe Bellini,
    It has made me want to try more of the range. I do wonder what with it pulling out of US stores if it will leave other countries, would be such a shame.

  3. Loving that metallic green shadow, I'm going to have to check it out the next time I'm by the shu counter!

    Best, Lisamarie

  4. Hi Lisamarie,

    It is a lovely shade, different to anything else I have.
