Shu Uemura's HANA-BI Collection- Fleur de Source

Shu Uemura's HANA-BI Collection, Shu Uemura, makeup
I have to admit that I was a bit afraid to try out this palette when it arrived on my door step. While the palette is beautiful, these colors aren't my normal eye shadows (which means pretty much anything except blue), and the blues here are absolutely beautiful!


But, you can see here you can see that once swatched, these shadows are much more user friendly than they appear! I've been using them very frequently in somewhat surprising ways, such as adding S7 to the center of my lid (after neutral, matte shadows) as a highlight! The light blue shimmer doesn't really come across as blue, more it picks up the light and just looks light and fresh. My favorite color from this compact is S5, which is actually a light golden color with a hint of pink. I'm using it nearly every day as a brow highlighter or also in the center of my eyelid.

Perfect for summer!

Very pretty! I picked up the Fleur de Rose palette during friends & family, and I'm smitten with it:)

Gorgeous and fresh! I recently bought a light seafoam green eyeshadow from the Body Shop (who knew they had such great makeup?). It's similar to L2. I've been using it all over my lids for a subtle summery look.

Nice! Do you think the S5 is a dupe for stila kitten?

I don't think it is, I think S5 is actually a lighter cousin of Kitten. :D
