Chocolate and Makeup

25 Aug

Check out the newest collection of Shu Uemura called Chocolat-Donna! OMG.  That’s all I can say…

Chocolate and makeup, a brilliant combination 🙂  Shu Uemura has three beautiful eyeshadow palettes in this collection and they are all AMAZING.  So wearable!  I can actually just have these three palettes in my makeup kit! 🙂

Each palette has six different shades.  Let’s start with the first one…

This palette is called Mint and Vanilla 🙂  Even the names are perfect! 🙂  Each palette has a great combination of colors.  You can create a beautiful smoky eye using the darker, chocolate brown hues and use the lighter shades (some with glitter) as highlight 🙂  I love the fact that the dark chocolate brown shadows are matte!  I love matte eyeshadows 🙂

And here are the color swatches of the Mint & Vanilla palette 🙂

Here’s the second palette.  This one is called Raspberry and Mocha 🙂

The combination of this palette is a little bit richer than the Mint & Vanilla palette.  This is perfect for a more intense smoky eye especially the darkest shade is a deep, dark chocolate brown.  I personally like this palette the best 🙂  This will definitely suit most women 🙂

And here’s the color swatch 🙂  A lovely family of earthy tones 🙂

Lastly, this palette is called Orange & Pistachio 🙂

This is pretty similar to the Mint & Vanilla palette especially the darker tones 🙂  But instead of the gold shimmer, you have a nice glittery orange and a brighter pastel green 🙂

What I love about these palettes is that you can create so many looks even with just one palette 🙂  Just looking at the color swatches, I can already imagine so many possibilities 🙂

Part of the collection are two lovely glow ons 🙂

The one below is called Framboisier 🙂

And this one is called Apricot 🙂

Both will go well with any of the palettes 🙂

And of course, in every Shu Uemura collection, there is a perfect pair of lashes 🙂  The one below is called the Choco-Lash 🙂

Chocolat-Donna is definitely one of my favorite collections from Shu Uemura ever! 🙂  I like palettes that will never go out of style 🙂  I know these palettes are timeless and can be worn by all women!  🙂

And because of all the chocolate talk, it made me want to get a bag of my all-time favorite local chocolate!!! 🙂

Stand aside Cadbury and Nestle!  Haha!  Now this is my ultimate indulgence…

FLAT TOPS by Ricoa! Haha! 🙂

Have a chocolate-y weekend and maybe try out these amazing palettes at any Shu Uemura counter! 🙂

Let me know what you think is the best palette for you! 🙂
