Shu Uemura #BraveBeauty Eye Palettes [Orange, Pink, Green] // 2014 Vision of Beauty Collection Volume 1

Feast your eyes on the Shu Uemura Vision of Beauty Collection Brave Beauty Eye Palettes ($90 each at Holt Renfrew, select Hudson's Bay and Sephora Locations) for Fall 2014. The palettes come in 3 variations - Orange, Pink and Green. Each palette is a ingeniously curated combination of eyeshadows featuring one vivid matte shade and 5 relatively wearable pearl shades to correspond with the bold matte shadow.  

The packaging is A+, as expected. The sleek white packaging with the addition of the limited edition Brave Beauty packaging is still clean with a twist. The individual shadows are removable and you can mix and match between palettes to suit your needs. 

As per usual, the Shu Uemura pressed eyeshadows are exceptional. The ones contained in the Brave Beauty Eye palettes are consistent with other Shu Uemura pressed shadows that I've tried previously - vibrant, smooth and not overly glittery or pearly (see reviews - Pret a Palette & Shadows M813 and M851). In terms of colour combinations, the palettes are interesting, to say the least. A ridiculously bright matte shade paired with 5 easier-to-work-with shades. I think the swatches are worth 1,000 words... 

Orange Palette (orange accent with deep brown, plums and sandy pearl neutrals)

Pink Palette (bright pink accent with burgundy, purple, and lilac pearl shades)

Green Palette (a turquoise green accent with metallic and pearl earth thones)

While the Shu Uemura Brave Beauty palettes are far from "normal", who wants to be normal/boring/mediocre anyways? If you feel like stepping outside of your beauty comfort zone (aka "being brave") these palettes are the perfect way to do so, as they contain a little bit of wow as well as workable neutrals.

SIDENOTE: The Shu Uemura Brave Beauty is a stunner. Cream blush/highlighter, sheer lipstick, eyelashes, face studs and eyeliner reviews coming soon! :)

What do you think of the Shu Uemura Brave Beauty Eye Palettes? Too bright or just right?
