Remember that one post LONG ago about shu uemura cream eyeshadows--Europe and Asia exclusive? WELL, now, they're HERE!!!! (I'm excited!!!

Taken from above source:
"Soft-blend, waterproof cream colored eye shadows with a smooth application and multi-functional usage provides intense color pay off. The unique formula can be layered with Pressed Eye Shadow for a textured, high-impact look, applied alone for a smooth, natural finish, or blended with another shade. 9 blendable and buildable shades in two textures: MATTE: Specially selected shades by specific function for artistic needs - light & shadow control, hue and complexion control. PEARL: Light neutral shades with pearly effect, perfect for base and for usage with Pressed Eye Shadow. Silicone oils provide a comfortable glide. Long-wearing and non-creasing.

PRICE $30.00"

Comes in: Matte (M) and Pearl (P)
M Sand Brown
M Black
M White
P Taupe
P Brown 7a
P Beige
P Pink
P Light Blue
P Light Green.

30$. A little overpriced...

Click here for some swatches (!) and more in depth thoughts. I would say that the matte ones are harder (drier) than the shimmer ones, which are more creamy. All are very pigmented and don't crease. They come in a THIN pot--the lid is thicker than the pot itself, which is probably half the height of a MAC eyeshadow. It is also worth mentioning that in Asia, the product retails for ~20$--Shu is ripping you off! What the heck shu?


  1. i tried these at the boutique and they are DRY CITY!!! i won't rec these to anyone, seriously, NO ONE should buy these.

    And shu should discontinue these ASAP.

  2. Hi Jojoba! I agree the mattes are super dry--but then it's been half a year since I've seen these. The shimmers work well as I can recall--not that blendable though. I think they'd be good more of a makeup artist body painting thing!

  3. holy moley!! this one in Sand Brown is my everyday HG. ive been using them for about half a year and no drying out yet.

  4. Hi Anonymous! Thank you so much for the info. I might be picking one up soon--still debating on color and eek, that price! I'm glad they work out for you!
