The ob for shu uemura Spring 2013 Sakura collection is an absolute treat for all the “girly” girls out there. A whimsical world between the beauty of dreams and the woes of reality is where the inspiration for the artist OB’s pink sakura world of princesses for Spring came to light. The Pastel Fantasy collection includes 8 princess worthy matte shades of pressed eye shadows ($19 CAD). They come in refill form and there is the loveliest Custom Case duo ($11CAD) showcasing the Cherry Blossom Princess that can house 2 eye shadows or one glow on blush.
The Custom Case Duo has a white refillable base with a clear plastic lid embellished with ob’s artwork.
The two shades I have are:
M Soft Blue 630
M Medium Brown 852
M Medium Brown 852 is a very warm chocolate brown. It has great pigmentation. I found M Light Blue 630 to be a bit sheer worn alone but over a base, especially a white one like the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, and it really comes to life.
Oh and pick me up off the floor! I just discovered shu uemura has a CANADIAN online shopping site! Where the heck did that come from? You can get the ob collection now at www.shuuemura.ca. The collection will also be available at Holt Renfrew and select Sephora boutiques as of April 2013.
