Shu Uemura Brave Beauty Green Eyeshadow Palette- Vision Of Beauty Collection Vol.01

The Shu Uemura Vision of Beauty Vol. 1-Brave Beauty Collection is something else I tell you! It’s nothing short of amazing. I haven’t been this impressed with a makeup collection in a while I think!

The collection is the first in a new series of annual collections that will explore makeup as a form of artistic expression. This year’s theme is Brave Beauty, which is a tribute to women as modern day warriors. I don’t know about you, but makeup helps me brave the day, how about you?

This is quite the collection, so I’m going to have to divide up my reviews because I feel each of these gorgeous eyeshadow palettes deserve a post of their own, don’t you think?

Shu Uemura Brave Beauty Green Eyeshadow Palette

HEYYY? As you can see that amazing teal/emerald green is matte, and the other shades of green include olive, mint, apple and forest. The best thing about all of these Brave Beauty palettes is that there’s none of those glitter shades that are usually included in limited edition Shu Palettes. Don’t get me wrong, I love the glitters from Shu, but it’s so refreshing that this time I can use ALL of the shades ALL of the time.

The eyeshadows in the Shu Uemura Brave Beauty Green Eyeshadow Palette are so pigmented, so soft, blend so easily-they’re pretty perfect if you ask me.

Can you see how pretty they are? From afar they look so amazing too! The shadows just glow! Especially that minty one I used as an inner eye highlight. There are so many combinations of  green eye looks you could create with this palette that you’d never tire of it!

Ok, here’s a look I did today using the matte green:

Happy Friday everyone! Are you a green eyeshadow fan? What do you think of this palette then? And does makeup makeup you braver? It’s an interesting point that I’d love to hear your thoughts about! 

*products sent by the amazingly lovely PR, who I must thank for my extra pink gift! You are the BEST. Oh, and thoughts about these Shu products are mine as always. It would be Shu Uemura that would turn me into a green eyeshadow fan!

  • Damn! This palette is really special. I love it on you, Tracy!

  • The green one, the green one! It is definitely my favorite out of the three! That matte shade is so impossibly bold!

  • Definitely one of the best green palettes i’ve seen to date, and I had a green eye shadow OBSESSION in high school

  • Bellyhead

    Wow, that green palette is so pretty on you, Tracy!!

  • I agree, it’s nice to see a palette without the glitter (even though I JUST posted about that today, LOL), because that means you can use all of the shades!

    I WANT THIS ONE SO BADLY. I wanted the orange one, but I swear it didn’t come here, and then I tried to make myself feel better and say that I think the last Shiseido trio I bought has some of those colors. SO MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

    WELCOME TO THE KERMIT SIIIIIIIDDDEEEEEEEEE, you look fabulous in green! WEAR IT ALL THE TIME.

    • Hahahaha, I know! I was so happy about no glitter. I’ll probably use these palettes so much more just because of that!
      The orange one is AMAZE. Wait until you see it. Both would be amazing on you.
      LOL hahahaha thanks! :D:D

  • rachlovespenguins

    I’m still not wearing much eye makeup but yeah- the green one! The GREEN one!!! Hahahahahaha can you tell which one I would buy? 😛 And I kinda can’t wait to see what the rest of those little goodies look like too!
    I think I finally figured out the whatsapp thing and it’s all sad at me because I haz no contacts and keeps wanting me to invite everyone in my phonebook. Hello boss, please be my whatsapp contact…. Hello banking office, maybe you will talk to me? LOL

    • Hahaha I know! That’s why I picked it first to try too! And I will!
      LOL hahaha I know, it’s silly that way. We need to get our phone #s-email me!

  • WOW its gorgeous on you! Ive always loved Shu Uemura products and this one looks stunning! I’ve also been drooling over the lipstick casing *sighs*

    • Thanks!! The packaging is just gorgeous! It’s rare I like everything in a collection, but this one I really do!

  • Such a beautifully packaged collection, and some amazing shades! Those greens were made for you, Tracy! So pretty 🙂

  • Gorgeous shades. These greens are so perfect.

  • your green look is AMAZING! i’ve said it before but i’ll say it again, i LOVE how you pair shadows together. i wish i could be as creative too.

  • That mint liner!

    • That Lancome liner comes in handy every once in awhile! It’s so pigmented and crazy bright, but perfect for this palette! Thanks Rae! I wanna see you in greens! you always do purples, I think greens would be AMAZING on your pretty!

  • Lily

    The greens look amazing on you! Must wear them more 🙂
    I won’t have a chance to check these out because I can only check these out in the bigger cities and I hate travelling when I’m this size. Guess I’ll be missing out 🙁

  • Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah. I need that palette! I’m a total sucker for greens. And for Shu Uemura. The look you created looks lovely.

  • Love the 2nd look! I’m jealous of the intensity of color on your waterline hehe, I can never built up any pigment like that on my lower waterline 🙁

    • That eye pencil is from Lancome and I love it! Can’t wear it too often as it only looks good with certain shades.

  • I’m madly in love with both looks! WOW! They are works of art. Seriously, how do you get your crease so defined without having shadow blown out to your eyebrows and/or muddying up your lid?? This is a teaching moment! 😉
    Makeup does make me feel better about myself and more confident, so yes, I’d say braver. It’s the same as wearing a great pair of jeans or a new pair of sassy shoes – when you feel good about your appearance, you’re happier and more comfortable in general.

    • Thanks! MAC 217 babe. It’s my BFF. And hold it on the end. Holding brushes on the end make a WORLD of diff. It’s lighter and easier to control!
      I agree! So so much!

    You look great in green! I can’t wait for my palette to get here. 🙂 And good Q re: does makeup make us braver. I say yes but it can also be a terrible crutch. I’m in a brave phase, trying to rock all the colours I loved looking at but was scared of wearing in the past.

    • Thanks! WHO KNEW?
      I hope you get this one as I think you’ll love it!
      Being brave about makeup I sometimes thick comes with age, ya’ know? Not for all of us, but for those of us that needed to age and become more comfy in our skins. That’s me! And I think you too!

  • Toya

    G’uh….you might have converted ME to green, too, Tracy – this looks effing fabulous on you! I rarely wear green but WOW! I don’t know if makeup makes me BRAVER, per se, but it certainly gives me a bit of a kick, you know? I feel a bit more badass/sexy if I’ve got a great makeup look going on. If it’s just a natural look I don’t get the same feeling at all – it’s gotta be ROCKIN’. Then all bets are off 😉

    • LOL I hear ya! SAME here. I love a good rock chick look, ya’ know? And my leather jacket? And boots? BAZINGA.
