Mon Shu Girl is watching us, even when we apply our makeup. See the silhouette on the mirror?
Both are a combination of rich shimmers and complex glitter shadows. Each have a tiny blush pan as well.
Smoky Velvet is definitely the more glittery palette.
The colors in Smoky Velvet are gorgeous and all were so smooth upon application- even the glitters! I think the massive glitter will keep it from being an everyday palette. I do wish the black was a matte. I can't wait to use the gorgeous greens on the right though.
When I swatched Prestigious Bordeaux, I could hear the angels singing. I have never touched such smooth and buttery pans of eyeshadow.
I don't want to be unfair to Dora, but if I had a favorite child, her name rhymes with Brestigious Cordeaux. I hope Smoky Velvet doesn't kill me in my sleep now......
The complex shimmer and buttery textures in these Shu Uemura palettes makes it hard to go wrong with either one. For further beautiful swatches, please visit Drivel About Frivol. For a look showcasing Prestigious Bordeaux, visit Mira Sundari.
