Shu Uemura x The RAEviewer: Limited Edition 'Night' Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches, and Tutorial

Bronze was the theme of my first collaborative effort with Shu Uemura, so I wanted to take it up a notch with a colorful nighttime look. I chose purple since it is the most flattering bright eyeshadow against all eye colors and depending on the shade, can even be considered a neutral. 
The Shu Uemura X The RAEviewer "Night" Palette was inspired by my love for Dior's Stylish Move eyeshadow quint. Both are lovely purple themed options, but the Dior palette is warmer and more subdued. That is why I created a palette with more vibrant tones which are perfect for nighttime and special occasions. These four Shu Uemura eyeshadows can create more intense eye looks since the pigmentation is so rich, and they are supremely smooth and easy to blend. Use more burgundy and less plum for a daytime themed look! 

The star of my palette is the iridescent medium purple 795, which has a cool blue undertone that makes brown eyes like mine pop! To further spotlight the beauty of the purple, I chose soft pearly textures for the other three eyeshadows. The light pink-lavender illuminates the brow bones and inner corners of the eyes. The dark plum has a strong brown base, so it adds structure and warmth, while the black eyeshadow intensifies and completes this brilliant smoky eye. I truly believe this is the perfect purple palette!

P Light Pink 125, pearl delicate pink
P Dark Plum 790, pearl burgundy plum
P Black 995, pearl black with silver glitter
IR Medium Purple 795, iridescent rich purple
