shu uemura spring/summer 2010 Morphorium!

You should make a point of finding your way to Holt Renfrew soon to check out the spring/summer collection from shu uemura, it is sooooooo pretty!  It is meant to take you to the mystique beauty of a tropical rainforest, all I know is that it has taken me to my happy place!
Morphorium Blue Eye & Cheek Palette - $85 - Limited Edition - with vivid blue, rich purple and acid green shadows, a light brown cream eyeshadow to use as a base or shading colour and the prettiest pink blush, this palette makes me squee!
Sunset Gold Eye & Cheek Palette - $85 - Limited Edition - with deep brown, gold and white shadows, a pink beige cream eyeshadow to use as a base or shading colour and a peach blush.  Although I really love the blue palette, this one would probably be more practical for everyday use. Practical makeup?  I know, crazy talk!
Shine Mystique Eye Color - $36 - Khaki Silver - Limited Edition - I don't know why the picture is showing so teal green, the actual colour is much more olive green.  It's described as an olive, khaki and silver reflection.  The first and new "Metamorphose pearls" in loose powder type eye colour create an outstanding "colour-traveling" effect for ultra-luminous reflection with extraordinary shine.
Painting Liner - $29 - ME Purple - luscious purple with a soft shimmer, ME Brown - rich brown-purple with a delicate shine - a long-wearing eyeliner with intensive colour and creamy texture which is waterproof and smudge proof.

Rouge Unlimited - $31 - PK 335 - soft pink with a moist finish, PK 348 - warm apricot with a moist finish

If you have seen the collection online already you will notice that Canada doesn't seem to have gotten everything that is available - we got shorted a couple of lipsticks, the nail polish and the funky looking green and purple lashes.  I don't know if those items will be on counter here or if you will have to order them if you are really jonesing for them!  So don't leave us hanging, has anyone laid eyes on it yet and/or are you planning on?

  1. ooh, the palettes are gorgeous! the lipstick packaging looks interesting, too :)

  2. Wow!!! I love the bold colors!!! I want spring to happen now!!!! Tired of the cold! ;)

  3. The first palette makes me think of sunny beaches but I agree, second one is way more practical :)

  4. That promo photo is incredible! I really like the look of that first palette. And the lashes, of course!

  5. I love the bright blue palette. It may be a bit impractical but with a light touch, I can see many ways to do your make up in an acceptable manner. And the whole palette is simply gorgeous. Love also the 2 cream pots, the purple and the one that looks green).Have we even gotten those colors or do we have access to those colors in the US? If the US can't get them, maybe someone from canada can help me out.
