Hey ladies, we’re slowing inching into Summer collections – usually not a fave for me, but I’m very intrigued by Shu Uemura’s offering for Summer 2010 – the Gem Glam collection.
Actually, I’m only really interested in one item from Gem Glam – the Flawless Glow Powder compact. See that compact in the picture? I have a bigger picture below (not the real thing of course 😛 Its not out here in Malaysia yet but its out on Shu Uemura online (USA))
So what’s this Flawless Glow Powder then? I’m getting vibes of another glow powder I love – wanna hazard a guess which one I’m thinking of? 😛
If you guessed the Guerlain Meteorites powder, you’d be right.
The Flawless Glow Powder from Shu Uemura is a multicoloured compact that has 2 halves. The top half highlights with luminous powder to give you a glow while the bottom half is for contouring. Shu Uemura says you can use it all mixed together for a healthy luminous glow and to even out skin tone and minimize pores.
On a personal note, I’d be comfortable with the top half – it lacks a pink which is usually used to add a fresh glow but the usual purple for skin brightening and green for counteracting redness is there. I’m a little uncertain about the bottom half actually. I’m not one for contouring and I’m wondering if it might be a little warm for me. I think I might have preferred a compact in either one of the shades offered instead of a 2-in-1.
That said, I’ll try to check it out when it gets here (possibly in June?) and I’ll tell you what I think then. Retails currently online at Shu Uemura USA for US$55.
Your thoughts? 😀
