February/March 2009 – shu uemura’s 128th mode make-up collection ‘Mirage’, is an optical phenomenon that gently arises like a mirage. Enhancing the uniqueness of every woman’s face, natural positions of light and shadow are accentuated using expertly chosen palettes of color and contrasting textures. Utilizing the concept of Impressionist painting, colors appear randomly placed when viewed up close, yet with distance, the effect creates a lasting and clearly defined image. Wavering on the eye and cheek, brushstrokes of colors and texture gently enhance each part of the face, creating outstanding dimension with sophisticated combinations of light and shadow.

The MIRAGE collection includes:

Eye Shadow Palette ($40.00)

  • Utopia Delicate mixture of fresh, alluring colors wavers in the light
  • Fantasia Mellow harmony of color enchants the eyes

Drawing Pencil ($19.00)

  • 14ME Light Blue (LE) Light blue with a hint of metallic nuance
  • 15ME Lilac (LE) Uplifting lilac with a hint of metallic nuance
  • 04ME Pink Glimmering highlighting shade to attract the light

Silhouette Defining Colors ($38.00)

What were your favorite winter collections this year? Which ones did you skip, which ones did you end up with everything?

You know what I noticed?  Most brands don’t have winter collections–they only bother with releasing holiday collections, gift sets, and/or palettes or some combination thereof.  MAC dominates the winter ’08 season with its non-holiday releases!

What were YOUR favorites from the holiday launches? Which collections did you buy from?  Which ones were totally not interesting?

I found myself getting things from… Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Clinique, Dior, Givenchy, Guerlain, Jouer, Laura Mercier, Lush, MAC, NARS, Prescriptives, Sue Devitt, and Urban Decay.  WHEW!  I didn’t even realize how much holiday loot I ended up with this year!  Hopefully a few of you had a plentiful holiday collection haulin’ so I won’t feel so alone ;)
