Sharing : Shu Uemura Shupette 2014 Holiday Collection

I'm aware my blog has been very quiet of late. So many things has happened and I can't seem to put a stop to it, just have to go with the flow. Feeling unmotivated to do anything does not help either. Working on this blog, my upcoming classes for Masters, and teaching will definitely be on my 2015 list with the aim to share more, be consistent in my studies, and be a better educator. I'm human and am fully aware that I won't be able to do everything on my own. My dear readers, you are my drive to be a better blogger. Thank you for being with me from the very beginning till today. Hope you will continue this journey with me :)

It is the time of the year where a year comes to an end and a new beginning is approaching. Some of you may have already come across this new line from Shu Uemura. I'd truly believe that it is the best collection from Shu Uemura for the year 2014.

They really did end the year with a bang, or maybe it is because I have an undying love for cats. Yes, cats. Shu Uemura does have a way with women. Their 2014 Holiday Collection is Shupette - Shu Uemura X Karl Lagerfeld.

According to Shu Uemura, "This holiday season, "Shupette," the most spoiled feline of celebrated fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld takes you to the beauty journey from Parisienne chic to Tokyo kawaii with her glistening blue eyes!"

"I'm a famous furry beauty Shupette Lagerfeld, queen of catnaps, 
spoiled glamourpuss, and social media's most wanted."

Watching and observing Ms. Lisa Yap demostrating with the new Shupette products made me feel like a cat playing with its toy - filled with interest, passion, and curiousity. I have been observing her since I got a chance to work part-time with Shu Uemura in two separate events. She's famously known for creating purr-rfect, natural-looking eyebrows. That I kid you not. She has this classy and elegant vibe and her makeup skills is purr-fect. I may sound like I am trying to do some serious buttering here but don't get me wrong. She never once came off as snobbish, always ready to impart knowledge when asked. It was an honour being able to work with her even if it was from afar. *gleeful*


Shu Uemura took this opportunity to introduce two new comers to their eyebrow liner line - Shu Uemura Eyebrow Manicure and Shu Uemura Eyebrow Ink during the session. I'm unable to comment much on the product as I haven't gotten the chance to test it out yet. But I have my eyes on the Eyebrow Manicure. Say no to Crayon Shin-Chan eyebrows! 

Shu Uemura's Eyebrow Manicure comes with a unique double-sided bristle which is specifically designed for the recommended application method by using the shorter bristles to apply and longer bristles to blend to achieve natural coloring. It comes in two shades which are Ash Brown and Honey Glaze. If I'm not mistaken, the swatch above is the shade Honey Glaze. It contains 3.5g per tube and it is priced at RM100. 

Whereas for Shu Uemura's Eyebrow Ink, it claims to have a 24-hour wear for an ultimate artist-like lasting natural eyebrows. I think I would leave it to the Shu Uemura Sales Assistants to explain and demonstrate how you can make it work for you. It does seem like a promising product if used properly. So if you are in mall, just swing by at one of their counters to test it out. It comes in 4 shades which are Ash Brown, Honey Glaze, Palm Beige, and Tawny Gold. It is priced at RM100 each. 

Here's a swatch from Shupette Pampearl-me Face Powder.
Shu Uemura Shupette Shu Uemura Pampearl-me Face Powder. The name given for this powder is truly spot on. It has micro-fine pearly shimmer with a satin finish but fret not, it doesn't make you look like a disco ball. This powder is meant to be used light-handedly to kill off any dullness which may be caused by extremely matte liquid or powder foundation. Technically, it gives that pearly glow to your skin minus the oil shine. But again, heavy application may lead to possible heart-attack that your boyfriend or husband may experience if they were to encounter you without prior notice. Teehee.
