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?
The Shu Uemura Brave Beauty Green Eyeshadow Palette($90 C) is the first one I want to show you, so let’s get a close-up on this Brave Beauty!
Isn’t it the most gorgeous green eyeshadow palette you’ve ever seen? I’m not a huge green fan, but WOW. Call me converted! I’ve come over to the green side baby!

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:
Now THAT’S Green, hey? I LOVE this look. It’s amazing to wear!
