Got this sight unseen from a cp cos it was totally oos in my country. this works best as a highlighter...colourwise - its slightly yellower than P Peach 42 and has more chunky shimmer. i much prefer the finner texture of p peach 42 (hence i wont be purchaseing this)

So Sugar from Sweet Mode 06, my entry collection into Shu MA. I ordered this without seeing it and was surprised that it had little color (PPP Nars Mont Blanc). Shu, like other company's/products I know of ****COUGH, Nars NIco***** is sold under blush but is so much more. I am pale enough to get a little bit of color out of this but I think Sugar has a higher purpose here. Right now I'm thinking it would be best used to peg my boyfriend in the head so he will stop playing his stupid guitar so I can finish writing this review. Apart from that it is a truely unusual highlighter. I find it shimmery with a touch of frost and glitter and I do mean glitter. It's a wonderful way to perk up your current blush collection or tone down (with adding shimmer and glitter) a bright blush. I find the uses simular to Nars Nico (which I am a fan of) but cannot wear it all over like NIco, nor does it really reduce redness. Because of the glitter, Sugar is more noticable than Nico. This is a nice highlighter, blush/addition to blush or eyeshadow. Looks great with Sakura over it. Still need to try over Apricot, but I'm sure I will like that too. If you like Sugar try Shu glow ons in p silver 91 and p gold 93 d. If you want a more natural version get Nars Nico. Would I buy again? Yes because this one is headed for b/f's noggin.

What happens if you send your boyfriend to buy you blusher in APRICOT, I said APRICOT, thats A-P-R-I-C-O-T a orangey, peachy shade?
You end up with an insipid looking blusher called Sugar of course, because obviously thats easily confused with Apricot.
Bitterness aside, I actually like this more than my initial disappointment expected - I have olive skin, but I found that their Glow On in Brown is a bit muddy but mixed with this, its is very flattering, and divine!
A good blending shade, and all by accident.

Like others, I was surprised by this blush. I wasn't considering it at all. But then a MA ambushed me, told me how much she loved it. I don't use a highlighter or pale colored blushes, but I was too tired at the end of the day to argue. She put it on my eyelids as well as my cheekbones. I didn't buy it, but when I got home I couldn't stop admiring myself. It brought out my cheekbones w/out that awful too shiny thing so many highlighters have going on. Gives a subtle glow--versus an overtly sparkly look. My husband told me I looked lovely. I've been thinking about it for the last two weeks and finally bought it tonight. Beautiful on lids w a black smoky eyeliner look!

Did not expect to buy this when I went to check out the Shu Spring collection, and the SA showed me several ways to wear this, and I came home very happy with my purchase.
I tried it out myself and am not disappointed! I love this as a hilighter on my cheekbones, and bridge of the nose. This made me look like I have a higher bridge than I actually have! This is no overly-shimmery so won't make you look like an oil slick.
I love using this as a hilighter on my brow bones as well.. I've never tried using a glow-on as e/s, and I was very surprised that this belnds well, and wears well in the eye area too! This is a very natural hilighter for the brow bones, and I love it!
I would say this a rather unique colour for Shu, cos it is different from their normal range. I love the gold shimmer in this too!

I am surprised about this blush. I went to a Sweet Mode event and Sugar wasn't even on my list to check out or purchase. But I came home with Sugar and I'm estactic about it!
In the pan Sugar looks boring. It's a white peach shade that looks very light. I don't think this color will show up as a blush unless on very pale PPPs. I love the MAs at the Shu counter and boutique here in San Francisco. They showed me the beauty of this product and how to use it! Sugar is fantastic as a hilighter or if you want to emphasize your cheekbones subtly. I've been an apple applyer with my blush, I don't know how to emphasize my cheekbones withought looking too obvious. Sugar is very soft and it gives enough color to bring them out.
Other ways to wear Sugar is as a brownbone hilighter or a wash on eyes. Soo pretty! Also dab a bit on your lips, then top with gloss. Sugar dabbed on the center of lips will emphasize your pout. I love this blush and I wasn't even interested in it in the first place!

I LOVE this "blush". It has the perfect balance of sheer pale peach, beige, gold shimmer. I use it to highlight and as an eye shadow. I layer this with Nars Madly and pop the cheek with Shu Uemura Sakura. Actually makes me change my opinion about blush....love. And while his other Glow Ons are in my Trish planner...these are going to stay in the case because they are so pretty. I'm purchasins and 2nd one since they are limited edition.

Pretty shimmer, love the packaging, but it wouldn't be the first thing I'd choose in the 2006 S/S collection. Seriously, it's nude shimmer, makes a great face base if you have good skin, but I've seen better products out there. Not justifiable for the price, as Shu's other blushes are, but overall, not bad. I wish I could give a 3.5 for this.

Sugar is a blush from Shu's Spring 2006 line. It's packaged in the sleek clear plastic that we've all come to associate with Shu. There are two significant packaging differences, however. First, the packaging is slightly heavier duty, similar to the new packaging of the Shu e/s. Second, this LE blush has a lace overlay pattern on the top lid.
I'm an NC20 and Sugar is a light beige--Sugar nearly matches my coloring exactly. Sugar adds a touch of polish and sparkle, but absolutely no color whatsoever. As Shu's website advises, Sugar can be used as a "pop" (of shimmer? not color!) over another Shu blush. It adds a little bit of shimmer. Similar to MAC's Naked pigment and NARS Nico.
For the price, I wouldn't buy this again. I think that there are other shimmer products with a softer shimmer that I prefer (MAC skinfinish, GA fluid sheers). I'm giving this a few lippies b/c I knew when I bought it that this is really just to a "extra touch" and there may be people that love a very neutral natural finish.
