A few weeks ago during my 'Love Haul' this was one of the first things that I picked up. When I walked past the Shu Uemura store in Covent Garden, it was the first time I had heard of the collaboration between Shu and Karl Largerfeld.
As I was looking at the collection nothing really caught my eye till I saw this Prestigious Bordeaux eye-shadow pallet- then I swatched the colours and that was the decider for me. They are soo pigmented and super soft and velvety that I kicked myself slightly for not trying Shu Uemura eye-shadows earlier!
The eye-shadows colours in the pallet are simply called B1-B5 and the B6 shade is a blush (I totally didn't know that till I brought it home! LOL!)
The mirror is in the shape of a Mon Shu girl!
These are the colours up close:
B1 Top Left- A dark purple multi tonal shimmer
B2 Top Right- A copper-red multi tonal shimmer
B3 Middle Left- A lilac and silver shimmer
B4 Middle Right- A soft brown sheen
B5 Bottom Left- Pressed gold pigment
B6 Bottom Right- Soft pinky coral blush
Overall I really love this pallet Its in my everyday make-up bag and is perfect for either a neutral or coloured eye. This pallet is more suited for warmer skin tones and the pigmentation of the shadows makes them last all day (tested with MAC concealer and Laura Mercier eye cream as a base). The colours are really wearable and blend together nicely or alone on your eyelid, as usual the brushes that come with the pallet are not the greatest but its all good! I am beyond glad to have purchased this pallet and really recommend it!
Have you had a chance to look at this collection? What do you think?
