Qwic-Pic: Shu Uemura Chocolat-Donna Autumn-Winter 2012



Just when Spring whizzed by and Summer popped up everywhere, the Fall and Autumn Winter Collections are waiting in the wings, ready to descend upon us. 

Shu Uemura's Autumn-Winter Collection goes all sugary-sweet on us - the chocolate-themed collection hopes to replicate the same emotions that chocolate lovers associate with chocolate - "passion, love and delight".

The Chocolat-Donna look is inspired by the sense of reward and satisfaction one might get from eating chocolates - the feeling of happiness, contentment and that sugar-high. Here is what Shu Uemura International Artistic Director Uuchide-San says about the Chocolat-Donna Collection:


The star of the collection are the 3 Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palettes (SGD$110 each) - filled with 6 pre-set shades, each inspired by a box of luxurious chocolates. The shades are inspired by flavours often paired with chocolate - ginger, mocha, vanilla, pistachio, mint and raspberry.

Here are Shu Uemura's recommendations for complete looks using the eyeshadow palettes

I love how the palettes look - the gold accents on the eyeshadows as well as the accents on the Prima Palette (the casing) really look appealing. I do wish that the eyeshadows were sold separately though - I'd like to make my own box of chocolates :)

In the collection is also a Limited Edition pair of brown feather eyelashes, accented with gold and silver - now, THIS I would like ... 

And to complete the looks, chocolate-inspired shades for lips and cheeks .... 

10 shades of Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte (SGD$39 each)

And a Limited Edition raspberry shade of Glow On Blush (SGD$33)


The recent Shu Uemura collections have been an absolute delight - I have accumulated yet another palette of 4 eyeshadows and have not even featured them here and already, there are new shades coming out! If you like pairing pretty pastels with matte browns - which Shu Uemura points out is on-trend right now - then do be sure to check out the Chocolat-Donna Collection when it rolls out in Aug 2012.
