Liese products

Tried out two of the 3 Liese products I received courtesy of Yesstyle. One for an airy style and the other for permed styles. Both are used on dry hair as “fixes!”

Liese products

Liese Airy Style Blow-Dry Water

Gives an airy volume without greasy texture
Easy to use
Dries quickly with hairdryer

Does add a slight hairspray texture

I really liked the Airy Style Blow-Dry Water spray. It does exactly what it says. The texture it leaves behind isn’t too bad. It’s similar to a hair spray texture but with more give. I would recommend this for anyone with thin flat hair like mine

Liese Wave Style Defining Foam

Easy to apply
Fast drying
Weightless texture

Best for permed hair

The perm I got in the summer is about 99% washed out however I found this product to be pretty useful in adding waves. I applied a bit of the Wave Style Defining foam to my un-styled but dry hair. I then put it up in a ponytail bun (where you create a sort of bun from only pulling your hair halfway through the tie) and I took it out about an hour later when I got to work and had these great waves that lasted all day! Usually when I do this the waves fall out throughout the day but this product added a little extra hold to them.

Shu Uemura x Takashi Murakami

I recently tried out this eyeshadow palette from Yesstyle. It’s a part of Shu Uemura’s 2013 holiday collection called 6♡ Princess. A collaboration with Takashi Murakami. This is the Enchanted Black Parallel palette.

There are 7 iridescent and pearly eye shadows with 1 blush color. The colors are rich and vibrant. I’ve been using the gold, silver, black, and pearl pink heavily since receiving the palette. The plum blush is strongly pigmented and a little goes a long way.

Shu Uemura 6♡ Princess Enchanted Black Parallel Palette

Rich, highly pigmented colors
Long lasting
Good variety of shades
Gold and silver together in 1 palette

Glitter fallout especially with pearl pink shade (using NARS primer)
Works best with included compact brushes (and not well with other brushes)

Final thoughts: This is a good palette for adding a mix of colors into any collection especially mine which is mostly made of of neutrals. I have 2 of Shu Uemura’s previous holiday palettes. I personally prefer the texture and variety in those previous palettes but these offer more color choices in the eye shadow. The top 3 shades are perfect for the holidays. I love gold shadow this time of year and silver with black are perfect for New Year’s. I also liked that a single palette offered both silver and gold. These two shades are usually found in separate eye shadow palettes when given the choice. Also a good palette for celebrating Mardi Gras ;)
