Shu Uemura IR Brown 850 Eyeshadow

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 29 - 2012

I’ve wanted Shu Uemura’s IR Brown 850 for quite a while… I think it was ever since I read it likened to MAC’s discontinued Smoke & Diamonds which I craved and couldn’t get hold of before it had sold out.

Shu Uemura IR Brown 850 is a very pretty silvery taupe. It’s perfectly neutral, leaning neither too warm nor too cool and as we have come to expect from Shu Uemura shadows, applies with a beautifully smooth texture.

By the way, incase you’re wondering where you can get it from… I’m taking a leaf out of PinkSith’s book.  Sorry.  Nice though, innit?

    Have you ever tried ‘by terry’s’ taupe? it’s called ‘misty grey’ and words can’t describe how much I love it – it’s kind of… well, without going overboard or anything, mystical – it’s got depth, it’s buildable, it can be a sheer wash or a deep deep stain. It’s a breathtaking taupe and I HAD to tell you! I have never spent £23 on an eyeshadow in my life before but oh my gosh – SO worth it! (I found it in spacenc on a rare trip to that there london last weekend)

    ps. In real life I’m actually quite sane.
