Grand Opera, an exclusive Shu Uemura Collection for the 2006 holiday season was inspired by the glamour and opulence of the Opera. This collection features dramatic contrasts between light and shadows and offers warm, vibrant shades with the softness of velvet and satin.
The Pressed Eyeshadow Palette in Soft Satin looks incredible with an iridescent plum and an iridescent gunmetal brown. Also in this palette is a pearl-rose pink and a pearl terra cotta.
In the Rich Velvet Pressed Eyeshadow Palette there’s a pearl mandarin-orange, a deep pearl plum, an iridescent silver (pretty!) and an iridescent canary yellow.
Our must-have item from this collection is the Precise Volume Mascara in Mauve Cascades, a deep plum-mauve.
While we’ve never been too keen on colored mascaras, this one seems subtle enough to give our holiday eyes that exra special touch without being too out there.
