Shu Uemura Blossom Dream Collection Spring 2013 - Unmask Palette in Pink

I lurveeee this new collection by Shu Uemura. I have to tell you, this Spring sees a huge selection of pink palettes, pink lips, pink nails etc. Basically a plethora of pink-ness to choose from. Shu Uemura's Unmask Palette in Pink is the best out there. Its a totally matte palette (HALLELUJAH!!!!) that offers great basic matte shades with one bright pink in there that is very wearable. I was so excited to swatch, try, and then purchase this palette.

I also bought one of the eyelashes from the collection, and the sales assistant provided me with some great samples.

There are a few sets of swatches and a couple of eye looks below for you.

Look at the texture of these eyeshadows. It does not sit on the skin at all and it looks so gorgeous on the eyes as well.

I started with the light beige on my browbone. Then, I placed the light baby pink all over the lid and above the crease. I then layered the brown all over the mobile lid and then used the pink in the crease area. The dark brown is used to create a soft hazy liner.

In the eye look below, I have done exactly the same thing but layering twice and building up the pigmentation. I hope you can appreciate how well the colours transition and this was with minimal blending. The eyeshadow quality is just outstanding. I think this may be one of the best matte palettes ever!!

What do you think about the Shu Uemura Blossom Dream Collection? I absolutely love my pink palette, I will be wearing this a lot!
