AMW Reports: Shu Uemura Chocolat Donna and Ultime8 Launch

Dear Shu Uemura,
Thank you for bringing in a new collection inspired by women's bestfriend --- chocolates!  

The Chocolat Donna is Shu Uemura's 135th mode make-up and it's part of the autumn/winter collection. To celebrate this milestone, I was one of the lucky blogger who get an invite to celebrate precious moments with a friend whom I know will enjoy makeup and chocolates as much as I do! 

Since I had the chance to know Angela during our Nuffnang Blog Awards in Malaysia and we had loads of fun times tasting on various chocolates at the Chocolate Factory, Kuala Lumpur so I thought of inviting her and I'm glad she had as much fun as I did!

"Chocolate as a milestone of your life, a piece of chocolate evokes your precious memories bittersweet memories of first love, of joyful celebrations breathe in the chocolate aroma, taste the creamy, soft, crunchy textures, every single piece rich with happiness and comfort.
Close your eyes, savor the flavors of life, evoke the next chaper of an exciting journey that you have never tasted before." --- Shu Uemura press release


Nina Solano, Sr. Business Development Manager of Shu Uemura Philippines welcomed everyone with a gorgeous smile and as always, it great seeing catching up! 

Aside from sharing her excitement about the Chocolat Donna collection, we were also introduced to Shu Uemura's most luxurious Cleansing Oil to date.


Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil
The number 8 is there because there will be 8 outstanding skincare benefits after 4 weeks of usage.  Skin will feel revitalized, more translucent, more radiant, nourished, refined, smoother, suppler and moisturized!  That's 8 benefits in ONE cleansing oil that we all want to try!

And of course, the cute Mon Shu Girl made an appearance.  Mon Shu girl is Karl Lagerfield's creation as inspired by Japanese Manga.  Oh she's got red eyes by the way, I wasn't able to take the final shot of her final look with red eyes! 


Karen Crisostomo, Management Trainee for Shu Uemura Philippines did a wonderful job welcoming each of the bloggers and guests aside from introducing us to the newest collection.  She obviously showed to everyone her excitement on how we can always have the "Shu Uemura" fun with the customized eye shadow palettes.

Chocolates + Makeup will always be a wonderful combination!
