Nobody enjoys the sweltering heat of the Singapore summer, but if we are to be optimistic, the season does beckon floaty fabrics as well as cheery hues that extend from the latest fashion togs to new makeup lines, making the weather all that much tolerable.
Shu Uemura joins in on the summer fun with an extensive lustworthy collection that promises smoldering eyes, longer lashes and luminous skin. We want all of them for ourselves, but here are the four new essentials that’d equip any makeup pouch just perfectly.
New eye colours
Sultry or innocent? Get every look you so desire with Shu Uemura’s new eyeshadow colours of the season.
Why limit yourself to just a couple of eyeshadow colours when you can get all 19 new summer colours (S$22 per pressed eye shadow refill) from Shu Uemura? Inspired by the surfaces of lakes in summer, these colours sparkle in either a chiffon soft and silky texture, or a creamy touch with a new surface smoothing technology. Switching from doe-eyed innocence to a an alluring evening look has never been easier.
Stretch Extreme Precise Finish waterproof mascara
Achieving that wide-eyed dolly look has never been easier than with Shu Uemura’s Stretch Extreme Precise Finish waterproof mascara.
Complete that wide-eyed look with the Stretch Extreme Precise Finish waterproof mascara (S$50), which promises to give maximum stretch without clumping and definition to each and every single eye lash.
Limited edition eyelash curler
Shu Uemura’s iconic eyelash curler now comes in a limited 24k gold edition, perfect for creating that wide-eyed look.
Shu Uemura’s well-loved iconic eyelash curler (S$32) takes on a premium 24k gold sheen, and is the cherry on the icing of the new makeup collection. Nothing gives that va-va-voom effect on the lashes better than an eyelash curler, and what could be better than one that’s used by makeup artists and celebrities all over the world?
New ultime8 cleansing oil
The piece de resistance of the new summer collection from Shu Uemura is the ultime8 cleansing oil, an updated version of its iconic cleaning oil, combining makeup removal, facial cleansing and treatment in a bottle of goodness.
Undoubedtly the one product that’s synonymous with the Shu Uemura name, the iconic cleansing oil is now launched in a brand new form, combining makeup removal, facial cleansing and treatment in a bottle of goodness.
The new ultime8 cleansing oil (S$65 for 150ml or S$170 for 450ml), containing eight carefully selected botanical oils, is said to visibly improve skin after just the first use, and will continue to do so by penetrating deep into the skin layers and revitalizing skin cells with antioxidation, regeneration and restorative effects. The ultime8 is also tough on makeup and impurities, but infused with a cashmere texture for a luxurious wash.
The new ultime8 will be available at all shu uemura beauty counters from July 2012.
