Chocolate and Makeup

25 Aug

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

Chocolate and makeup, a brilliant combination ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Shu Uemura has three beautiful eyeshadow palettes in this collection and they are all AMAZING. ย So wearable! ย I can actually just have these three palettes in my makeup kit! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

This palette is called Mint and Vanilla ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Even the names are perfect! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Each palette has a great combination of colors. ย You can create a beautiful smoky eye using the darker, chocolate brown hues and use the lighter shades (some with glitter) as highlight ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I love the fact that the dark chocolate brown shadows are matte! ย I love matte eyeshadows ๐Ÿ™‚

And here are the color swatches of the Mint & Vanilla palette ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the second palette. ย This one is called Raspberry and Mocha ๐Ÿ™‚

The combination of this palette is a little bit richer than the Mint & Vanilla palette. ย This is perfect for a more intense smoky eye especially the darkest shade is a deep, dark chocolate brown. ย I personally like this palette the best ๐Ÿ™‚ ย This will definitely suit most women ๐Ÿ™‚

And here’s the color swatch ๐Ÿ™‚ ย A lovely family of earthy tones ๐Ÿ™‚

Lastly, this palette is called Orange & Pistachio ๐Ÿ™‚

This is pretty similar to the Mint & Vanilla palette especially the darker tones ๐Ÿ™‚ ย But instead of the gold shimmer, you have a nice glittery orange and a brighter pastel green ๐Ÿ™‚

What I love about these palettes is that you can create so many looks even with just one palette ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Just looking at the color swatches, I can already imagine so many possibilities ๐Ÿ™‚

Part of the collection are two lovely glow ons ๐Ÿ™‚

The one below is called Framboisier ๐Ÿ™‚

And this one is called Apricot ๐Ÿ™‚

Both will go well with any of the palettes ๐Ÿ™‚

And of course, in every Shu Uemura collection, there is a perfect pair of lashes ๐Ÿ™‚ ย The one below is called the Choco-Lash ๐Ÿ™‚

Chocolat-Donna is definitely one of my favorite collections from Shu Uemura ever! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I like palettes that will never go out of style ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I know these palettes are timeless and can be worn by all women! ย ๐Ÿ™‚

And because of all the chocolate talk, it made me want to get a bag of my all-time favorite local chocolate!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

FLAT TOPS by Ricoa! Haha! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a chocolate-y weekend and maybe try out these amazing palettes at any Shu Uemura counter! ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me know what you think is the best palette for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted a palette that contained colors that I can use for a fresh daytime and natural look for everyday. ย So I chose these four colors for my palette ๐Ÿ™‚ From top to bottom: G Copper 261, G Orange 251, P Soft Beige 823 and P Soft Coral 121. Voila!!! My own customized sparkling palette ๐Ÿ™‚

The choices are endless. Be adventurous in customizing your palette ๐Ÿ™‚ ย It’s just like choosing your wardrobe. ย It’s good to have colors for your base, highlight and contouring. ย Maybe choose colors that can be worn on its own and/or blended with the rest of the palette to maximize the use of the colors ๐Ÿ™‚

But most of all, have fun choosing your eye shadows! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย There’s nothing more enjoyable than creating your own palettes! ๐Ÿ™‚
