Tsumori chisato for shu uemura-Ribbon palette and Lipgloss trio

I didn't know what to expect when I ordered the Ribbon palette and lip gloss trio from the tsumori chisato for shu uemura collection. I primarily ordered for the packaging-it's just too friggin cute but shu has pretty good quality in it's make up so I gave these pieces a shot.

The Ribbon palette (I've seen it labeled as radiant ribbon palette and ribbon planet palette, so I'm just calling it Ribbon) :

Compact is made of clear gold flecked plastic

It has 3 powder eye shadows (a shimmery pink, shimmery gold and matte lilac), 2 liners (gold shimmer brown and bright silver) and 1 blush (shimmery gold peach).

I was pretty happy with this palette. The shadows went on smooth, had good pigmentation and blended easily. I did not try the 2 creme liners though. The blush looks super bright but goes on pretty sheer (hence, the swatch didn't really show up).

The other item that wooed me was the cute lip gloss trio. It comes in a nylon bag with gold drawstring and star print.

3 shades-clear gold shimmer, peach with gold shimmer and sheer berry

The lip glosses go on nicely. They aren't sticky but I can't say how well they wear. They do have a scent to them (similar to Lancome Fever glosses), but the scent doesn't seem to linger long.

This collection is pretty and has adorable packaging. The make up itself is solid and seems to wear well. The main drawback is the price, but to soften the blow. You can order them on and use the friends and family code, FF2009 for 20% off (valid till 11/2).

The glosses look good, though I always think the shu uemura ones have a strange uhm...taste?

This is so so so cute! An over load of cute! I'd be the typical idiot to buy the things just for their gorgeous packaging. Thank the makeup gods Shu Uemura has good makeup!
