Shu Uemura recently dropped one of the most exceptional spring collections to ever hit the shelves. Partnering with Korean fashion guru, Kathleen Kye, this limited edition collection consists of 24 products, each unique in their own K-pop way.
For eyes there are four incredible drawing pencils (White, Pink, Navy and Black). Each liner is smooth, long-lasting and applies with ease.
They have outdone themselves in the brow department. Seriously, heart stopping! The collection boasts three brow palettes (Cappuccino x Dark Rose (NEW!), Seal Brown x Stone Gray, and Walnut Brown x Acorn). These brow powders can be used alone to add definition to the brow or act as your base when filling in your brow. The collection also includes two brow swords (angled, retractable pencils), which allows you to achieve bold lines, available in two shades, Dark Rose and Dark Violet. The angled pencil aids in making controlled strokes along the natural line of the brow bone. Finally, the Eyebrow Manicure, which is by far the best tinted-brow gel we have ever used. The teeny applicator allows you to get to every hair and gives your brows that full, bushy look.
For lips the Kye Collection includes three sheer colour balms: Melt in Orange, Hugged in Peach, and Glow in Pink. Inspired by Seoul’s neon city lights, these soft and moisturizing balm’s enhance the natural colour of your lips and leave them feeling soft while looking glossy.
For the face the collection feature the Blanc: Chroma Brightening UV Cushion Foundation, which is probably our favourite item in the collection. The foundation is very lightweight, with excellent coverage. It adds a nice glow to the skin, which most heavier oil-based foundations don’t. Its compact packaging and easy application makes this a perfect product to carry in your purse or gym bag. The Chroma Cushion Foundation is available in six porcelain shades. This means that it unfortunately will not work with every skin tone as a foundation, but could definitely be used as a highlighter on darker skin tones.
Similar to the Cushion Foundation is the Fresh Cushion Blush available in two shades pink and peach. Same sponge application is used and it can be applied with your fingers and or with a brush, so it’s perfect for that after gym touch up.
For skin, the collection offers two cleansing oils. The first is the Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil which is infused with eight botanical oils that keeps the skin fresh and moisturized. The second cleanser is the POREfinist which is a water like fresh oil that helps to clean and minimize the look of pores, while leaving skin smooth and clean.
Finally, for hair the collection includes three significant hair conditioners. One to help colour last, another to renew strands, and one to restore and add moisture back to dry hair.
