Shu Uemura Spring 2014 Bijoux Collection Overview and Swatches! (Excluding Powder Highlight/Blush)

Pearl, pearl, pearl! That’s the one word that sums up the entire collection.

For the first time, Shu Uemura has come up with a collection that is almost entirely composed of cream products. All of these come in delicious creamy pastel tones that swatch on paler than they look in the pots.

The collection includes:

  • 4 cream shadows
  • 2 cream blushes
  • 2 limited edition premium lashes (only one shown here)
  • 1 blush/highlighter compact (not available for swatching at this time)

While I love all the super smooth textures and colors (these shadows have a suede-like consistency and go on more evenly than the typical MACs, Make Up For Evers and Maybellines, which can be a bit streaky or patchy. I am pretty sure the cream blushes and shadows would be quite popular.

I do want to especially highlight the 2 lipsticks, because it’s easy to pass them over when you see them on the display. These 2 nudes come in a concealer nude tone (Topaz Beige) and a pink nude (Opal Pink), and what’s special about them is they feel like cream lipsticks but go on in a pearl-matte finish, so they subtly highlight the lips and create a natural ombre effect, making your lips poutier looking.
