SHU UEMURA Glow On 5g
P Peach 40 was the first item I bought from my local SHU counter when it opened a few years ago. I didn’t have many blushes at that time, and the few I did have were variations on pink, so I wanted a versatile, not pink colour I would hopefully get a lot of use from. Unfortunately, while P Peach 40 is very wearable, my preference for pinky shades means it’s usually neglected. And it’s still my only peach blush, I think. (My collection is woefully skewed.)
From what I understand of SHU’s not so intuitive shade naming system, the initial stands for the finish, e.g. P for “Pearl” in this case, and also M for “Matte”. The number at the end confused me for a long time, but the first digit is supposed to signify the shade family and the second provides some indication of intensity. So in this case, 40 denotes a Peach blush (the “4”) that is the lightest in the Peach lineup (the “0”). Which doesn’t explain why some of the higher numbered shades on the website look lighter, but I find it hard enough to remember the shade names I shan’t bother too much with the reasoning behind them.

This was yesterday’s FOTD. I was going to go to the art gallery, but the weather, uncharacteristically, had other plans. I didn’t get very far before it started hailing and raining. I ended up drinking iced chocolate in the department store foodhall, possibly the only not leaking/flooding part of the department store.
It’s also a redo of a previous FOTD (which I also deleted) although I did things a little differently this time. (●´ω｀●)ゞエヘヘ

TSUMORI CHISATO☆SHU UEMURA Cosmetics Pouch
I don’t usually take a cosmetics pouch with me when I go out, but I’ve been carrying this out ever since I got it. ♥ Despite the fact that it’s so fat and puffy it takes up quite a lot of space in my bag.
This is the first cosmetics pouch I’ve bought! （*｀▽´*）ｳﾋｮﾋｮ We have boxes of GWP cosmetic pouches at home (my mother’s accumulation over the years 彡(-ω-；)彡ﾋｭｰﾋｭｰ) so I’ve always used those when I needed one for travelling. Unfortunately those date back a number of years now and don’t look cute. Technically this was also a GWP but I only bought the makeup items for this pouch, although I suppose I will use them eventually. I originally wanted the larger Planet Vanity, but it was too expensive. ･*:.｡. (ﾉ´ω｀･。)･*:.｡. クスン

SHU UEMURA Base Control 13ml
I bought Green, a “correcting” shade, as I have problems with facial redness. (I haven’t used the other five available shades.) This is a colour to be mixed into foundation rather than applied separately under (or over), despite the provided instructions. I feel it’s too shimmery to be used as a green concealer over spots of redness.
