Shu Uemura Blush, Part 3

This post — unfortunately — concludes the blushes I was able to swatch before Shu Uemura withdrew from brick-and-mortar stores in the U.S. (I have a few highlighters, but I thought they deserved their own post.)

Shu’s blushes are called “Glow-On” because even the matte shades contain light-reflecting pigments — and they do seem to possess an almost magical glow. They’re $23 each, and for Americans, the only option is to purchase them online.

Here are the light swatches:
Shu Uemura, Glow On, blush, swatches, M Orange 55, soul, echo, KarlaSugar, Karla Sugar

Here are heavier swatches:
Shu Uemura, Glow On, blush, swatches, M Orange 55, soul, echo, KarlaSugar, Karla Sugar
Blush swatches can be misleading. Something that looks very light in an arm swatch can be perfectly lovely on a fair girl’s cheek. (I’m not the world’s palest person, but some of my favorite blushes, I’ve swatched and thought, “Is that all there is?”).

M Orange 55 is such a lovely color! But I have to apply it at arm’s length or it goes on too strong.

And as for soul and echo, I’m not going all e.e. cummings on you; those were two limited edition, split-pan shades that I happened to find testers of. I couldn’t tell you what collection they came from, but I thought I might as well include them.  The big swatches are the blended color.

In case you were also curious about the individual shades, I swatched them with eyeshadow applicators. Soul is on the left; Echo on the right.
