I’ve always been curious about Shu Uemura cosmetics, it’s a small brand that has been around for some time which I think is very impressive. I hopped along to the Covent Garden store a few weeks back and met with the Store Manager Daniel who talked me through some of Shu Uemura’s best sellers.. so here they are:

Shu Uemura Pro Concealer £16.50- If like me you’re an individual who finds it very hard to get a brill concealer then look no further. Shu Uemura’s pro concealer is a orangey peachy shade that I honestly thought I would NEVER go near! Daniel explained to me that the peachy orange shade helps neutralise the look of dark circles giving your eye that instant pop and lift. This concealer can be worn on its own or underneath your normal concealer. It really does do the job that most concealers don’t.

Shu Uemura Fresh Performance Cleansing Oil £27 150ml- An oil cleanser which melts away all the makeup, grime and build up from the day. Apply a small amount in to the palm of your hand a massage into your face gently. Wash off with water and the oil turn to milk. This cleansing oil is great for combination skin and leave your skin clean and fresh. If you have a different skin type Shu Uemura have many different cleansing oils to suit your skin type.

Shu Uemura UV Under Base Moose £28- This product gave me a little trouble in the beginning as it can leave a very annoying white residue on the face if you use to much. I was advised to use about a walnut size on my face but found that this was way to much. I use a smaller amount and evenly distribute it on my face, when used correctly this moose is a brilliant primer and really does help to keep your makeup fresh all day long. It also contains an SPF 30 making it even more of a magic product.

Shu Uemura Glow On Blush £19.50 – A fabulous blush that really does enhance your glow. Very easy to apply and lasts all day! Also great for blending with other colours and contouring the face.

Shu Uemura Stage Performer Instant Glow Price TBC- Save the best till last, Stage Performer is one of Shu Uemura’s newest and best-selling products. A multi functional beauty cream which helps enhance the finish of makeup. When you look closely the cream has very small gold particals which melt upon application to give you a super fabulous glow. Daniel informed me that the little gold particles are in fact real gold. Contains Ginkgo Leaf extract to fight oxidation. Instantly, skin appears more luminous, translucent and smooth. provides 24-hour lasting moisture. What more could you want? Liquid gold on your face!!!!
