The windows in the street-side Shu Uemura store at Omotesando Hills are gorgeous.  The weather outside was an awful wintry mix, but the store seemed modern and bright.  They were decorated with sakura images, taken by my favorite photographer, Ninagawa Mika.  There were also many women there getting their makeup done, which I’d love to do the next time I have an event to go to in Tokyo.  I did not get anything from the new collection, as I stocked up on foundation before I left my previous job at an unnamed beauty company.  But I did pick up this pencil eyeliner, color ME 10 purple.

Wore it for the first time today and it is the smoothest eyeliner I’ve ever owned.  It doesn’t smudge either.  This morning started sunny and bright, but around lunchtime it started snowing and hasn’t stopped so I was caught unprepared (read: no umbrella) and had to walk home (30min).  It was still in place!  Will def. go back to Shu Uemura for eyeliner.
