AMW Reports: The Launch of Shu Uemura's Color Atelier

Make-up palettes... best friend of any make-up artists out there and I am sure a lot of you MUAs are nodding!  I love palettes as they save up space and you can bring a lot of shades without using much space inside your train case!

"But I'm not a make-up artist!  I do not need all those shades!"

Those are the lines I heard from readers who reads my blog to learn makeup to prettify themselves!  I'm sure not all of you plan to do this professionally, and because of that... I'll be reporting a palette so wonderful because..

You can be the stylist of your own palette.  Feel free to mix, match and customize your colors for infinite make-up repertoire.  That's the promise of Shu Uemura's Color Atelier!

I was invited to be part of the launch of  Shu Uemura's Color Atelier at Shu Uemura's Boutique at Rockwell a couple of days ago! I got in the boutique, I can breathe and feel....home!

I was greeted by the super friendly Ms. Nina Solano, Business Development Manager of Shu Uemura Philippines.

She explained and showed to use the Custom Case Refillable palette which is available in 3 sizes to enjoy customization.

Tara choosing her favorite Glow On shade.  I think she got a very bright pink Glow On which suits her skin!

Patrick giving Shen a makeover!  She ended up with refreshed look and gorgeous looking brows!  Can't stop staring at her wonderful brows after the makeover!

With eyeshadow and blush pigments all over my hands (from all the swatching), I was telling Tara that I love make-up so much I'm eating them together with Dulcinea sweets!  Really yummy!

  1. reading ur blog with my breakfast is starting to become a habit :D

  2. These palettes are a lovely idea. It's so hard to choose among those shades, there are so many and all so pretty!

  3. Oh my gosh, I haven't seen Patrick in years! My aunt and I knew him back when he was in Rustan's Makati's Shu. I miss him, he used to make my face so flawless, even if I had a lot of blemishes. He's one of the reasons why I love Shu Uemura so much.

  4. love love love it all! I can tell that I'll be spending even more money at the Shu counter!

  5. im not a big fan of the shu uemura store in rockwell :( the sales people are very snooty and do not cater to your needs at all.:|

  6. Are the pans magnetized?


  7. @Kumiko MaeThank u sweet girl! Glad to be part of your morning ritual :)

  8. @Marge super nice shades! Took me a long time to choose sis!

  9. @gio it was hard and whats even more difficult? A lot of the gorgeous shades are out of stock

  10. @Denise well he told me he's around rockwell branch most of the time so you can see him there!

  11. @Jamilla Camel I agree! I already took a mental note on what I will purchase next

  12. @Bea iam so sorry for your bad experience! I feel for you, let's hope it won't happen again

  13. @Anonymous no magnets nor stickers you just slide the pan in

  14. wow thank you for this post!! 
    now, i know what to buy with my rustan's gcs..hehehe =)))lovelove love all your posts!!xoxo

  15. I soooo wish Shu Uemura was still in the states. :( 

  16. Good luck when it comes to choosing the shades! Making your own palette is quite tedious I may have to say!!! There's just so much to choose from!

  17. I do wonder why they're not available there?


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
