I’m not sure I could love the Choupette-inspired Shu Uemura Christmas Collection any more! The little sketches of the kitty on the packaging are absolutely adorable, and even better, the products themselves are great staples. The last piece of my collection is the Eye Need You Shu Trio in Pink, a collection of buff, chocolate and pink eyeshadows.
The little white compact is dainty enough to be popped into your makeup bag, and the clear lid means that it’s easy to know I’m reaching for my eyeshadow trio rather thank my lip trio if I’m in a hurry! The shadow colour collection, as well as being incredibly pretty, is really well thought out. In the past I’ve been a little wary of pink eyeshadows, but Shu’s offering is beautifully sheer, and works well to warm up whichever shadow I’ve plumped for. I’ve found it to be most flattering when I wear it on the outside of my eye crease, it feels pretty and sophisticated that way, rather than making my look tired. The warm chocolate brown shadow is absolutely gorgeous – the formula has a subtle glitter running through it, and the colour payoff is great. For a casual day look, I pat it on using my finger, and if I need a more dramatic or defined look, I use an aged eye brush to use the shade as a liner. The final colour is a stunning sheer golden shadow. This is a perfect brow-bone highlighter, and it also looks incredible patted into the inner corners of my eyes. When I’ve been in a pinch, the shadow also works as a pretty highlighter for my cheekbones when I want a natural, dewy look.
The trio is absolutely gorgeous and is available for £30.00 here.
