Shu Uemura Color Atelier

The Shu Uemura website has been updated with the Color Atelier collection of of 55 Pressed Eyeshadows and 30 Glow-on highlighters/blushes.

The eyeshadows are a mix of old and new shades in five textures: M for matte, P for Pearl, IR for iridescent, G for glitter and ME for metallic. The new shades are marked with a red box at the top left corner.

The Glow-on shades are divided in 3 categories: highlight (light), blusher (soft), and shadow & accent (medium/vivid). Both the Pressed Eyeshadows and Glow-ons are now sold as refills, with the cases sold separately.

While the prices of the individual eyeshadows and blushes have dropped, the net weight has also been reduced. Putting together a palette of 2 eyeshadows and a blush will now cost 7245yen while a palette of 4 eyeshadows will cost 8160yen. That's a tad more expensive than the palettes from the Spring 2011 Morphorium collection which had retailed at 7140yen each and contained a blush, 2 full size eyeshadow pans, and two half size eyeshadow and eyeliner pans.

The new compacts are beautifully designed! I really like the eco-friendly aspect of it too. I wonder if future limited edition compacts will reflect the new design?

Since the names were a little bit altered also, what would be the shade equivalent for M Wine 24 in the new set of blushes? I just bought the old type of Glow on and I am afraid that the shade might not be included in the new line.

Hi Polly,
Not sure, guess we'll see with the next fall makeup collection.

Hi periwinkle baby,
I'm not familiar with the shades so it's probably best to check with your nearest counter or email Shu Uemura customer service.
