Interesting blush. It looks very lavender in the pan, but goes on pink with lavender highlights. Now, I'm not sure just how well that would go with my MMM NC 30 complexion, but is sure is a change from the usual colors. I'd probably use it more on my fair-skinned little sister, though :) *Edited* I think I love this blush. The lavender doesn't show up at all anymore. I use this when I want an innocent little girl flush--very subtle and sweet. This is terrific!
Nice, glowy peach shade. I'm not fond of matte colors but this isn't a "look at me, I'm makeup" shade :) great on its own, but I like it better with P Pink 30 (which is a must-have IMO).
A beautiful sky blue color--strong pigment, it goes on blue and stays blue, unlike lots of blue eyeshadows that fade into silver or gray. Wonderfully summery.
Love the descriptions below--buttery gold. However, I don't think I'd be getting this again. It's a nice shimmer, but for the price, not worth it. It's the color of moonbeams on my skin-- a pale, silvery gold. Very nice, but not a spectacular color.
A pretty pink shade perfect for doll cheeks. I love this color because it's cool and warm at the same time; I look like I have bright pink cheeks, but they don't look artificially bright. It doesn't provide the most natural glow, but it's a very pretty pink.
Such a gorgeous blush! Very bright and pigmented, this might be a little hard to wear if you're used to blushes that need to be piled on. P Pink 30 is a pearly pink that gives you that beautiful flushed look-- wear it with your hair tumbling down your shoulders to look absolutely irresistible! Or layer it on for doll cheeks. The powder is so fine, it feels like talc. Wonderful. I wear it around my crush, and I feel oh-so-pretty :)
Cleansers -Shu Uemura - Cleansing Beauty Oil Balancer

I love this cleanser--it removes every bit of makeup, without scrubbing my skin raw, or all those cotton balls. Once in a while, I use it to wash my face even without makeup; I don't have problems with breakouts or oil, and I have sensitive skin. I've let several people use it, and all of them love it, which isn't expected, since I live in a tropical country. I love the classic; the light isn't as great. Can't wait to try the other varieties.
Such a pretty milky peach color. At first, I didn't like it because it washed me out. But with some pink-peach blush, it makes me look fresh and summery.
Quite a useless palette for me, because I don't go clubbing or anything like that. None of the colors was a keeper for my MMM NC30 skin-- Orgasm was too light, Copacabana looked oily, and the e/s were unremarkable except for Himalayas. And I won't even say anything about the silver lipstick and body glitter. Thumbs down on this palette.
I just don't get the hype.. nice texture, but it looked oily on me and the color was unremarkable. MMM NC30.
Gorgeous pink-red color with some very subtle shimmer, I look like I'm glowing when I wear it! Somehow, my cheekbones look higher and more defined-- or is it my imagination? I'm giving this a 4 because NARS blushes are expensive (although they last forever, this can be a problem for me because I easily tire of makeup). A similar color to this would be L'Oreal Rosy Cheeks blush delice (from the Philippines.. not sure what it is internationally). Overall, the color is wonderful on my skin (MMM, NC30), although I find that the texture isn't as great as Shu Uemura glow-ons.
I think I've found an HG! :) Lychee Luxe is an absolutely beautiful coral-pink with gold shimmer on my lips. I'm an MMM, NC30, and I find it rather hard to find a good lipgloss for my pigmented lips, but this takes the cake :) will repurchase again and again and again!
Mmm, I like this product. Originally, I wanted the acne mask, because I like clay masks, and not cleanser/masks. But a MUAer got me this instead, and I'm finding myself pleasantly surprised. I don't use it everyday, even as a cleanser-- I use Shu Uemura cleansing oils or VMV Hypoallegenics soap. I think it might be too harsh for everyday use. But once in a while, when I'm feeling oily or am on the verge of a breakout, I turn to this, and my skin feels a lot better :)

Mmm... I like this brush. It's not the softest or best I've ever tried, but it's so cute and picks up pigment easily. I use it for blush and powder.

Gorgeous palette! It's LE for the Holidays, one of the two Rouge Dessert Palettes. It contains two eyeshadows (shimmery yellow and brown) and a glow-on (peach laced with gold). I got it free in the product launch, so I'm one happy Shu fan! :)
