Shu Uemura? If you have not heard of it, you haven't seen the best yet!

There are 4 cosmetic products I use from Shu Uemura, namely the Loose Powder, the Lipstick, the Cleansing Oil and the Nail Polish. They are all top quality in their own right and I highly recommend you try them all. 

I like Shu Uemura loose powder for the fact that they are very fine powder and in a casing that's easily transportable, even during vacations.

Shu Uemura lipsticks are smooth and have a nice taste to them. Not that I eat them, but it smells good when I applied them on my lips. They are as good as those from Shiseido. If you like Shiseido lipsticks, you'll like this I reckon. They are in a lighter container as well, so that bodes well for those of us who are carrying too much in our handbags!

As for the cleansing oil, it's one of the best in the market. Comes in many fanciful colors so you'll have to check with the beauty consultants with regards to which one suits you. I am using the yellow one.

Shu Uemura Nail Polish is in fact my latest find. It's easy to apply and dry quickly. Especially good for those of us who are not professional manicurist!

Thanks to your review, I have another beauty addiction :P I'm loving the Shu Uemura products that I got from Hautelook!

I like shu uemura too! i only use the makeup products because I found the skincare to be too heavy for me :( But I really like the drawing pencils (eye liners) and eye shadows. They are really pigmented so what you see in the container is what will show up on your eyelid, and they're easy to blend, plus they last most of the day. I have one of the nail polishes in a dark purple sparkly color and at first I didn't like it because it seemed too thin. But now I prefer it to other brands like OPI or Essie because it dries much quicker! :)

Yes, that's exactly why I like the nail polish from Shu Uemura, because it's not thick and that makes it easier for me to apply 2 coats! At the manicurist, I do like having OPI. OPI has got great colors. :-)

haha! I'll have to try some more nail polish colors because it's boring wearing the same purple all the time -- it's too expensive going to the salon too often :P

Shu Uemura best item is its cleansing oil. I had since found a cheaper version in Shiseido though. Other products I love from Shu Uemura are lipstick, loose powder & nail polish. Its nail polish is simply the best with a wide range of fashionable colors!

About this cosmetic


Shu Uemura is a cosmetic line founded by a late makeup artist of the same name.  Renowned for his masterful makeup artistry since 1958, shu uemura helped pioneer the concept of the makeup artist, merging makeup and art through his bi-annual mode makeup collections and on-stage makeup performances. each of shu uemura's products embraces elements of art, nature and science through original packaging, unique textures, key ingredients and ground-breaking product formulas.

Uemura was a make-up artist & gained his fame from transforming Shirley MacLaine (in the movie My Geisha) into a Japanese woman. He then developed and launched his first cosmetics product in 1960. He founded a cosmetics company called Japan Makeup in 1967 & later changed the name to Shu Uemura Cosmetics in 1983.
